Californian Oasis – Level 1
The central focus of this course is the comprehension of the philosophy upon which Californian Oasis massage is based. The embracing wave, the effects of its different rhythms, the role and style of the transitions, as much through variation of pressure as through variation of speed, are all characteristics of Californian Oasis Massage.
Techniques for working both voluminous and superficial musculature are studied, and we will see how to incorporate traditional elements within this new modality of bodywork.
Correct body mechanics and the use of proper weight application (the use of Hara) will be amongst the primary focuses of this course, ensuring that students are able to work without harming or tiring themselves. Additionally, exercises in communication, stretching, dance and conscious movement will be included to complement the work on the massage table.
We will develop the harmonic composition of Californian Oasis massage and a wide range of more than 70 manual contact techniques. The objective upon finishing this course is that the student possesses a clear idea of the majority of the elements that constitute and give the form of Californian Oasis Massage.
