Bradford Donnaud – Talk and Breath Enhanced Massage

August 19, 2023 @ 9:00 am - August 20, 2023 @ 4:00 pm


Bradford Donnaud – Talk and Breath Enhanced Massage


This course is a hands-on class that joins Guided Imagery and Guided Breathwork with therapeutic massage. What should a client think about when getting a massage? The mind follows the body in relaxation. Asking a client to take a deep breath or to focus on a mental image can be useful in that it creates a conversational break if the client is very talkative or having trouble relaxing. Encouraging the client to focus on their breath assists the therapist in quieting their mind. These mind/body interventions can access the sympathetic nervous system and begin a cascade of beneficial physiological processes, like lower heart rate and lower blood pressure. The exercises you will learn will transform your service into a multisensory experience that transcends your standard massage and enhances your client’s experience.

What You Will Experience in This Class

  • The use of Imagery in the healing arts
  • How to prepare for a guided meditation physically and vocally
