It's new... it's fresh...it's original!
Better yet, this therapeutic modality saves the Massage Therapists' body
as your client receives a massage session they'll never forget!
Mother Earth Pillows® + Massage = Pillossage™
It didn't happen overnight...it took several years to develop this modality in a manner that would make sense to both your client's body and you...the therapist. The goal of Thermal Therapy is to create massage techniques working through heat to support the client's body as tissues gently respond to change...without pain using heated silky smooth Golden Flax and Herbal (unscented for classes) Mother Earth Pillows®, you will learn how to apply measured, wave-like compressions and therapeutic stretches to affect all layers of connective tissues...down to the depth of the periosteum where the deepest pain may reside. This is done without causing 'poking' or vertical discomfort for the client.
This modality is ideal for therapists who are looking for techniques to provide skillful therapy that can
stand alone or be integrated with other modalities to offer to clients who live with conditions that include
chronic pain, high levels of stress or who are in need of rehabilitation.
You will learn novel Self-Care techniques so therapy can continue after the session. Benefits and results achieved with Thermal Connective Tissue Release last far beyond the massage session. You will learn methods to help clients prolong and accelerate their healing, rehabilitation, and improve quality of life. As you learn the dance of Pillossage™, you will find easier ways to offer deep therapy without strain.
We are looking forward to seeing you in one of our classes!
Pillossage™, Thermal Connective Tissue Release, Thermal Pillow Massage Bodywork Techniques
Original massage modality developed by Karen Kowal, RN, LMT, NCTMB, NCBTMB Provider #451143-09
Description Pillossage™ is a groundbreaking modality that combines hands-on techniques with specifically designed thermal flax pillows. These innovative protocols deepen the therapeutic effect.
Mission The mission of Pillossage™ training is to educate and excite bodyworkers to successfully integrate the age-old property of heat with compression and stretching in new and creative ways.
Global Vision Pillossage™ therapy will revolutionize the way healthcare professionals approach pain management. Our vision is a world in which a thermal flax pillow becomes a bodyworker’s second favorite tool.
Pillossage™ and Thermal Connective Tissue Release will help the therapist slowly and gently work through the layers of soft tissue to reach the deeper origins of pain as deep as the periosteum.
Level 2 includes extensive Self-Care techniques using Mother Earth Pillows® that will help you maintain your body while teaching your clients how to maintain the work you have done during their session and how to achieve “Self-Care” for their specific pain patterns.
Clients often want 'deep-tissue-massage' but if discomfort is created by the therapist during the massage session, natural guarding will actually increase pain. This may block your opportunity to reach the causative factors of pain. Using Thermal Therapy, the therapist can access deep tissues that otherwise are too painful to affect.
Classes teach you how to add stretching, movement, Assisted Gravitational Stretching and focused compression. Clients benefit from increased range of motion and decreased pain and leave your table simply amazed!
