Palpation: The Essential Building Block
Imagine getting through a conversation without the use of speech—the key cornerstone of communication. Now imagine getting through a session without palpation—the essential building block of bodywork. All students deserve to be equipped with confident hands-on skills that can isolate structures, develop palpatory experiences and much more. Instructors, also, need to have effective, systematic and engaging learning tools for their classes. In this workshop, both groups will gain valuable insight about this underlying skill. Palpation—the very foundation of a practitioner’s work.
