MMASI™ Level 1-

Hours: 16 Online + 40 In-person = 56 Hours Total
Approximate Cost: $404 + $1,200 = $1,604

In Level 1, the student begins their training with a combination of online classes and in-person workshops. The main goal of Level 1 is to introduce the student to the foundations of MMASI™ (the MMASI™ 10-series, the MMASI™ Philosophy & Protocol, Gait Analysis, and the Concepts of Palpation). The student will have cursory understanding of the foundations of MMASI™ at the end of their Level 1 training.

*It's required for students to complete at least the 3-hr online Structural Integration- Theory & Gait Assessment course BEFORE the

in-person training.

Level 1 requires the completion of the following:

  • 3 CEU hours/ $99- Completion of Structural Integration- Theory and Gait Assessment.

  • 13 CEU hours/ $305 - Completion of MMASI™ Series- Level 1 where the student
    witnesses a MMASI™ 10 session series. 

  • 40 CEU hours/ $1,200- This in-person workshop is the introduction to applying the concepts and theories learned in the online portion of Level 1. The workshop begins by exploring the foundation for body reading and the neuromotor basis of our gait analysis in further depth. This information is then used to create a body reading model which is taught and practiced throughout the rest of the program. Students will practice gait analysis with the instructor’s guidance as they train their eye to see the MMASI™ principles and theories in motion.

    The training then involves learning the proper way to palpate and work the tissue via the Concepts of Palpation and the Order of Complexity as they relate to functional patterns. The student will explore both gait analysis and tissue palpation by exploring each of the 10-territories that make up the 10-series. The student will not practice or receive a 10-series session in Level 1.

MMASI™ Level 2-

Hours: 15 Online + 96 In-person + 14 Home Study = 125 Hours Total
Approximate Cost:  $345 + $2,880 +0 = $3,225
Pre-Requisite: Completion of MMASI™ Level 1

In Level 2, the student will have their first opportunity to trade a MMASI™ series with another student under the guidance of the instructor. This will allow the student to bring together all the foundations of MMASI™ for the first time. This level is a combination of online classes, in-person workshops, and home study. 

*It's required that the online portion and the home study assignment be completed BEFORE the in-person portion of Level 2.

Level 2 requires the completion of the following:

  • 15 hours/$0- Completion of home study practicum where the student performs and documents a MMASI™ 10 session series on a model/client.

  • 15 CEU hours/ $345 - Completion of MMASI™ 10 Series- Level 2 online course where the student witnesses a MMASI™ 10 Series that includes more discussion on how the philosophy guides the work and shows it in action!

  • 96 CEU hours/$2,880- The Level 2 in-person workshop involves the student observing (in-person) a Structural Integration series as done by the instructor on an outside client/model. The student will bear witness to the process of Structural Integration and have the opportunity to ask questions of the instructor in real time. Training will also include each student performing the SI series on a classmate. This will allow each student to experience giving and receiving a full Structural Integration 10-session series under the direct supervision of the instructor in order to focus on their personal embodiment of the SI protocol and philosophy and continue to hone their tissue palpation and gait assessment skills.

Upon completion of the Certified MMASI™ Practitioner Program, students will be given their license agreement with the Morales Method®. Once the agreement is completed and signed, students will be able to utilize the Morales Method® Trademark and the title, Certified MMASI™ Practitioner.

Cert Adv. MMASI Program

Certified Advanced MMASI™ Practitioner Program-

Hours: 1 Online + 88 In-person = 89 Hours Total
Approximate Cost:  $200 + $3,080 = $3,280
Pre-Requisite: Completion of the Certified MMASI™ Practitioner Program

 

The advanced training will tie together all that the student has learned in the Certified MMASI™ Practitioner Program. The student will have the opportunity to practice how to apply MMASI™ theory to a deeper level of series work under the guidance of their instructor. This will also include some training on advanced techniques like visceral and intraoral work to access deeper territories that can be useful in 10-series work.

*It's required that the one-on-one meeting with Marty is completed BEFORE the in-person workshop.

Students in the advanced program are required to complete the following:

  • 1 hour/$200- One-on-one online discussion with Marty

  • 88 hours/$3,080- In this workshop, the student will observe the instructor perform a MMASI™ 10 session series on an outside client/model in real time. During this advanced series the instructor will take less time to discuss the basics of pulling together the foundations of MMASI™ and will instead focus on the larger essence of the 10-series and its capabilities. The instructor will take more time to observe student practice, to allow them to explore the application of the concepts and principles on their own. This series may allow for the opportunity to focus on some of the deepest layers of the body including viscera, intra-oral, and intra-nasal work as they may pertain to the SI protocol and the principles of MMASI™ as it will be the second series that each student has received.

Upon completion of the Certified Advanced MMASI™ Practitioner Program, students will be given their license agreement with the Morales Method®. Once the agreement is completed and signed, students will be able to utilize the Morales Method® Trademark and the title, Certified Advanced MMASI™ Practitioner.
