I am a retired osteopathic physician, working under a massage license, limiting my practice to techniques allowed within this licensure. My primary modalities include craniosacral, Feldenkrais Method© of movement education, visceral, and positional release techniques.
I have extensive experience in teaching health care professionals, including craniosacral therapists, massage therapists, physical and occupational therapists, and social workers. Please visit www.iahe.com to see the classes:
      "Applications of the Feldenkrais Method for Craniosacral Therapists,"

      "Avenue of Expression: a Feldenkrais Approach,"

      "Breath and Diaphragms: A Feldenkrais Approach."

    There are also Facebook pages for each of these classes, with links to articles and comments from students.
All of these classes are oriented toward the craniosacral therapist, but open to anyone interested. The course material is from the Feldenkrais Method as it is relevant to craniosacral system and craniosacral practitioners.

I also teach continuing education classes through Florida School of Massage in Gainesville, Florida. Some of these classes are open to and appropriate for the general public; others are for hands-on professionals only. You may check this schedule at www.floridaschoolofmassage.com
