My introduction to bodywork even before massage school was Lauren Berry work. I studied it for several years and the tools are still an important part of my work. However, I try to put them into an evidence based holistic framework. I found that if I tried to think too much I missed clues that I would get if I listened more to my fingers. I now think of myself as a "muscle whisperer".

Hi, I took orthopedic massage courses from James Waslaski at the World Massage Festival in Panama City Beach, FL in August '08. It was an amazing weekend and I left his classes absolutely mind-blown! Still working at learning the protocol and application of the techniques.
