Certified Myomassology Practitioner Program
Myomassology Training Program Unique To Aromatica
Aromatica offers Canada’s FIRST and ONLY Certified Myomassology Practitioner Program. Our students graduate equipped to offer a full-service practice to meet clients’ increasing demand for multi-modality, holistic treatment.
The single identifying feature about myomassology massage is that treatments are tailored to individuals, and a wide range of modalities are deployed. Myomassology gives the massage practitioner more tools in the toolbox. Basic massage focuses on Swedish massage only. Myomassology, however, treats the Swedish technique as one of a myriad of body techniques.
Spring and Fall Myomassology Massage Training Programs Run Annually
We offer 2 Myomassology programs per year in April and September. Each program runs for 6 months, with students attending our residential retreat for one week (7 straight days each month) from Monday morning though the following Sunday afternoon.
There are 6 Modules of study to complete prior to graduation. The first being an easy home study component – Anatomy & Physiology. This is completed at home using a learning system which incorporates an ‘easy to read’ text book with colourful illustrations, an accompanying work book and CD. This allows flexibility for study time. The reading component is so necessary in this type of study and is best completed at home.
The remaining 5 modules are completed at our ten acre retreat-style centre at Mono, in the rolling hills of Hockley Valley near Shelburne and Orangeville in Ontario. Instruction Periods consist of 7 straight days of hands-on, in-class hours each month – Monday through Sunday. Each 7 day training session includes a Massage component plus other Modalities each week such as Aromatherapy Oil Blending for Massage, Reflexology, CranioSacral Therapy, Pregnancy Massage (includes Moxibustion to turn Mal-Positioned and Breech Babies plus Acupressure Analgesic Points for use During Labour), Acupressure & Tuina Chinese Medical Massage, Contraction Release Therapy (CRT), Leg & Hip Balancing, Traditional Chinese Fire Cupping & Cupping Massage, Chair Massage and Full-Body Paraffin Therapy. Classes commence at 10 am each day and finish at 5 pm. Students time is their own before and after class to explore the area’s many hiking trails, or simply relax with a book in one of our hammocks on site. Immersion in this type of hands-on training over 7 straight days each month allows the student to focus on their studies and increases their knowledge, technique, transition, flow and skill levels considerably. Students are given assignments and it is important that they practice what they have learned in the interim periods at home between classes each month.
