The purpose of this workshop is to teach participants a wholistic technique of massage which is unique to Focus Bodywork. It is designed to be a first step to a series of weekend workshops. The intention is to teach healing massage to beginners, as a profession or to practise on their family, and also to offer professionals who already do a form of bodywork a different perspective. The course will include approximately 18 hours of instruction divided into theory and hands-on practical sessions. It will be an intense study of: the body/mind connection; how and where we store blocked energy throughout the body; how to locate these blocks and move them out using practical techniques with energy work; and how intuition plays a major role as a bodyworker. The purpose of massage or bodywork is to rejuvenate and relax the body, which affects all aspects of ourselves, not only the physical. This particular course will be limited to 6 people & so you will receive more one-on-one training.
A certificate will be presented at the end of the course and signed after a practicum of 25 massages have been performed. There are no prerequisites, however any kind of personal growth work will be an asset.

I attended the Healing Massage course instructed by Sharon Strang Feb 6 week-end 2009. What a pleasure it was to be in the company of like-minded people. Through Sharon’s relaxed manner, yet outgoing personality and through her personal stories she shared I was able to see things differently in the way I give my treatments. She has given me my confidence back, I once again love doing massage. A huge thank-you to you Sharon. I would recommend this course.

Sharon is a fun, energetic, informative and knowledgeable teacher. She gave me excellent training to start an exciting career into relaxation massage. Thank you Sharon for giving me the opportunity to fulfill my dreams.

I have had the privilege of being a student in two of Sharon Strang’s massage classes. Relaxation Level I and Hot Stone Massage. I found Sharon’s classes to be interesting, informative, and easy to understand. Sharon works at a comfortable pace and is happy to answer all questions knowledgeably. Her lessons are filled with practical experience, humour and valuable information on how to set up your own massage practice.

Sharon keeps the class size small and manageable so that all of the students get her one to one attention. The classes are hands on and gives you the confidence to learn the massage techniques in a comfortable and safe learning environment that is very enjoyable. She also incorporates breathing and meditation into the class in the morning. It becomes a nice way to start the day.

I have completed my first practicum and received my certificate to practise from Sharon. My clients, friends, and family have given me excellent feedback regarding my massage techniques and I feel confident in my abilities. I would not hesitate to recommend Sharon Strang’s massage courses, she is a gifted teacher.

I had taken Sharon Strang’s Healing Massage and Hot Stone Massage courses late last year, having no prior training in these areas
