What is Holistic Massage?
Holistic massage is an individual treatment that is specifically tailored to each client. A holistic practitioner treats the client as a whole, taking into account their emotional and spiritual wellbeing, as well as their physical body.
An MTI practitioner masters a wide range of massage techniques. These can range from subtle energy work to deep tissue methods; from dynamic mobilizations to gentle holds. Flexibility in applying this knowledge is paramount since their appropriateness must be determined by the client's particular needs. Every treatment is unique providing a creative opportunity for the practitioner to adapt to the given situation. Just as important is the MTI practitioner’s continued professional development as well as their self-care through their own bodyuse, allowing the massage to flow without strain.
During MTI training, great importance is placed on how the practitioner communicates and interacts with the client. The MTI therapist works 'with' the client rather than just giving a massage 'to' them.
