Beloved graduates, peers, friends, and community: It is with great sadness and tremendous gratitude that we share this with you: we will not be enrolling students for the Fall 2021 start... and likely not enrolling any future classes as well.We realize that many of you may be shocked, saddened, disappointed... and we are too. We’ve considered many, many avenues for keeping our doors open, but without sustainable enrollment numbers, we simply cannot continue. While demand for LMTs (nationwide and in WA) continues to grow, enrollment numbers continue to decline. This trend was underway when we first opened our doors nearly 10 years ago, and the pandemic has only widened that divide.We just graduated a lovely and talented group of grads. We are also firmly committed to completing classes (Q3 & Q4) for our final cohort with care, support, and professionalism. They will graduate and join the massage profession in March 2022.The silver lining in all of this, to be honest, is all of you — the students, teachers, and supportive community who have helped us (and each other) grow and learn and develop. We have treasured our time together and appreciate what you brought to us and the profession. You all are a gift, and we're grateful to know and grow alongside you.Remember, a Discoverypoint is neither the beginning nor the end, but a point along the way…part of the journey of our lives, our careers, and the stories we continue to weave. Thank you for joining us on this journey.💜 Pat, Lisa & Julie ... See MoreSee Less

#8 #Prepare the #InsuranceMost important, we are going to talk to you about insurance that you may need in your #business.#LiabilityinsuranceIn centers where skin treatment and touching client’s bodies is performed, professional and General Liability (#Malpractice) Insurance is critical. Hence, although it is not usual, there is a risk that the practitioner may cause damage to the #client. Many companies offer policy coverage for at least $2,000,000 limit per occurrence for less than $300 per year. Besides, a massage center must have a #CommercialInsurance with Civil Liability coverage to obtain the licenses.The most common coverage is the Civil Liability of Exploitation. This is responsible for the business activities. It also covers the damages that employees may cause when carrying out their work.The Employer’s Civil Liability covers the business owner if workers suffer injuries or death due to an accident at work.Multi-Risk InsuranceThis insurance covers the damages that can be caused by a fire or a flood in the #assets of the premises that are insured. It also includes glass breaks, moons, mirrors, etc. It is the insurance company that is responsible for the expenses that may involve the repair of the affected goods.The theft coverage is also #essential because in a massage center may have material quality and quite expensive.#dpsom #legalizeit #massagecareers #happyhealing #holistictherapy ...

#7 Find a #StrategicLocation for #SuccessWhen choosing the location of the #massagecenter, it is best to separate yourself from the #competition. In big cities, there are already many massage centers, and you can find #pricewars and services. What you need to do is look for locations where there are almost no massage centers and little competition.To set up a massage center and have many #clients, you must try to locate it in a street where there is a lot of #movement. The massage rooms must be located in an area of the premises where the sound of the street is not heard. This condition is to avoid disturbing the #tranquility of the clients.A good idea is to locate the massage center in an area where there are people who work all day. In this way, receiving a massage when leaving work will be a perfect #opportunity for them.#dpsom #seattle #caphillseattle #massageschool #massagecareer ... See MoreSee Less

Trager Level I Training

January 5, 2019 @ 10:00 am - January 7, 2019 @ 5:00 pm


The Trager Approach is a somatic education practice that helps people experience themselves as healthy and whole. Developed by Dr. Milton Trager, it blends touch, movement, and curiousity to teach clients to feel changes in their tissues and return to this feeling state to effect long lasting changes. Trager Level 1 Training is a 54 hour training comprised of nine 6-hour days spread from January through April. Unlike the standard intensive Level 1 trainings this staggered schedule provides participants the opportunity to receive consistent instructional feedback and support as they learn to facilitate the Trager Approach. In Trager Level 1 you will experience and explore both Mentastics & table-work.

The table-work training will focus on deepening your experience and understanding of the Trager bodywork principles including:
o weighing
o elongation
o taking out slack
o sculpting
o rocking
o coming from your feet
o asking questions
o hook-up (working from a relaxed, focused meditative state of mind)
• Developing specific hand holds and techniques to apply these principles in a whole body treatment
• Clarifying cautions and contraindications for the Trager Approach

With Mentastics, you will discover and practice Mentastics movements for self-care to further develop self-awareness and help keep your mind and body more relaxed and less prone to injury.

Instructors: Gwen Crowell and other Trager Instrcutors
