The Morales Method® of Manual Therapy & Body Conditioning
provides Bodyworkers with powerful tools and knowledge that will help their clients get out of pain, improve their posture, and empower them to stay out of pain. These bodywork therapy and educational services are the culmination of over a decade of work and training by Marty Morales and encompasses his philosophy of always evolving to develop new methods and techniques.
The Morales Method® has three branches of study that lead to distinct certifications.
The Certified Practitioner program is specifically geared for addressing pain issues.
The Deep Tissue Techniques "Deep Tech" program is a comprehensive training of Deep Tissue manual therapy.
The third program is a complete and unique approach to Structural Integration under the school, MMASI.
All studies employ advanced tissue palpation systems called 'Directional Resistance' and ‘Directional Ease’ and a philosophy/style of work that fosters constant research and progress. The most effective techniques from effective modalities are synthesized and governed by a way of working called the Order of Complexity. The Order of Complexity is based on child stages of motor development and addresses issues from a deep nervous system level. Order of Complexity drives the order in which the techniques are used by a practitioner of the Morales Method. This way of working creates a bodyworker who is able to adapt to different client situations.
The student who completes this program will be skilled in highly effective techniques to address neck and low back pain, other common conditions, and will have the ability to do so with safe body mechanics. The student is exposed to the main principles of the Morales Method® as well as high level palpation and spinal mechanics. An exam is taken to test for competency. More Information
