Pain Management & Focused Therapy
It's new... it's effective... it's original!
Mother Earth Pillows® + Massage = Pillossage™
Better yet, this therapeutic Bodywork saves the Massage Therapists' body as each client receives a massage session they'll never forget!
It didn't happen overnight...it took several years to develop these techniques in a manner that would make sense to both your client's body and you...the therapist. Since 2009, the goal of Thermal Therapy has been to create massage techniques working through heat to assist tissues to gently respond to change...without pain. Using heated, silky smooth Golden Flax and Herbal (unscented for classes) Mother Earth Pillows® the therapist will learn how to apply slow, rhythmic, wave-like shearing & specifically directed compressions. Slow MFR therapeutic stretches will affect every layer of connective tissues...down to the depth of the periosteum where the deepest pain may reside. This is done without creating 'poking' or vertical pressure which often causes a guarding response when addressing tender areas or chronic pain.
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 to teach your clients novel Self-Care techniques so therapy can be continued by the client 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 to decrease chronic pain 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!
Description - Pillossage™ & Thermal Massage is a groundbreaking modality that combines hands-on techniques with specifically designed thermal flax pillows. These innovative protocols deepen the therapeutic effect. 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.
Mission - The mission of Pillossage & Thermal Massage training is to educate and excite body-workers to successfully integrate the age-old property of heat with compression and stretching in new and creative ways.
Global Vision - Pillossage™ & Thermal Therapy education will revolutionize the way all healthcare professionals are able to approach pain management. Our vision is a world in which a thermal flax pillow becomes a body-worker's second favorite tool.
Pillossage™, Thermal Connective Tissue Release Therapy (TRT), is an original modality using Mother Earth Pillows... Thermal Pillow Flax Pillows, focused massage & bodywork techniques using specific sequences.
