A Note from Nick
Twenty years ago when I went to Rolf Structural Integration school, I had the pleasure of having Nilce as my mentor.
The first several months of the training, you aren't allowed to touch anyone and that is what we call "learning to see". You observe the work, the clients, the practitioners and "you learn how to see". You learn to see what Structural Integration means.
Now I have the great privilege and pleasure of bringing Nilce to Saratoga Springs for 3 days, where she will distill the wisdom of teaching in a workshop called "Learning To See: A Structural Approach To Bodywork Which Is Useful To Any Work" and I will be teaching alongside her.
This class will teach you the fundamentals of "learning to see" how the approach of Structural Integration can benefit your work and your clients. In this class we will do structural observations, we will do key hands-on techniques and we will learn the foundations of Structural Integration.
I strongly feel that this work will have a powerful effect on the Massage and Bodywork as a whole and I really believe that you will be a perfect fit to learn this work.
This introductory workshop would be wonderful to help you decide if this is for you and it would also fulfill your prerequisite for the larger Structural Integration course, should you decide to follow it in the future.
You really can be very successful as a Structural Integration therapist if you want to.
