The Morales Method® of Manual Therapy & Body Conditioning Certification Programs
The Morales Method® provides bodyworkers with powerful tools and knowledge to help their clients get out of pain, improve their posture, and empower them to move functionally with confidence and ease.
The Morales Method® has four branches of study that lead to distinct certifications:
Specialized training in Structural Integration through the Morales Method® Academy of Structural Integration (MMASI™), founded by Marty Morales.
The Pain Specialist program, designed by Marty Morales and Sharon Oshita is specifically geared for addressing pain issues with manual therapy.
The Deep Tissue Therapist program ("Deep Tech"), designed by Marty Morales, is a comprehensive training of Deep Tissue manual therapy.
The Morales Method® Move In Mind™ Program, designed by Monica Canducci, is a movement education and body conditioning program based on the principles of Structural Integration.
All programs designed by Marty Morales employ advanced tissue palpation systems called the Concepts of Palpation and a philosophy/style of work that fosters constant research and progress. Learn more about all of our programs below!
*Note: For all certifications, a signed license agreement between the practitioner and the Morales Method® is required. As part of the certification process of all programs, each student will go through testing, analysis, and evaluation of their knowledge, skills, and abilities for the purposes of certification (re-certification) of the following fields:
Bodywork and Structural Integration
The MMASI™ certification is Structural Integration training geared towards the bodyworker who wants to become a Structural Integration practitioner. Through our school, the Morales Method® Academy of Structural Integration (MMASI™), we've structured a 271-hour program hybrid online program that includes in person workshops, online classes, and home study. In this program, the practitioner is introduced to a way of body reading, assessment, and a philosophy of work that follows the lineage of Dr. Ida P. Rolf.
This program is geared toward the bodyworker who wants to become more effective and efficient at addressing clients in pain. Whether they want to focus on athletes, every day individuals in pain, the elderly, or anyone in pain, this program has techniques that will help get them out of pain and improve their functionality. The student is exposed to the main principles of the Morales Method® including high-level palpation techniques, body mechanics to work safely and effectively, and spinal mechanics.
This program is for the practitioner who wants to take their Deep Tissue Massage skills to the next level and separate themselves from the pack. A full and comprehensive training covering all aspects on the subject of Deep Tissue Therapy, this 50-hour program has a rich legacy stemming from Ida P. Rolf and shares techniques used by many Structural Integrators.
Taught by highly skilled instructors, including Marty Morales, author of "Mastering Body Mechanics" and international instructor. This program represents some of the best training any practitioner can achieve on the subject.
Move In Mind™
Move-In Mind™ is for anyone interested in the connection between the body and the mind. No former bodywork experience is necessary for this course. The student who completes this program will be skilled in teaching clients how to functionally engage the postural muscles, how to move from “the core” through specific sensory-motor imagery, and how to move mindfully, always supported by the act of breathing.
The techniques in this program will help your clients overcome motor conflicts and improve motor control, coordination, and fluidity. This modality provides bodyworkers, mental health practitioners, and movement educators who want to integrate, implement, or develop movement work based on neuroplasticity in their practice to maximize their effectiveness.
All Morales Method® courses are approved as continuing education hours by The National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB).
As of January 1, 2018 CA students will need to be CAMTC certified before taking the MMASI™ course in California.
