ONE BODYsm Continuing Education Classes

ONE BODY instruction has evolved over 20+ years of teaching massage therapists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, chiropractors, nurses  and bodyworkers skills and techniques to enhance their practice. This instructional system, developed by Linda J McCrea, EdD, LMBT, is modeled on successful practice with bodywork clients over many years.  Results with clients include enhanced overall well-being, client re-education, and integration of body, mind, and spirit – all within comfort for both client and practitioner.

The instructional philosophy and content of the CE courses is strongly influenced by the developer’s longtime practice and instruction of Ortho-Bionomy®, a bodywork system founded by Arthur Lincoln Pauls, DO, based in osteopathic concepts and the use of gentle self-correcting reflexes to stimulate structural balance and client awareness in concert with the proprioceptive nerves.

“Such amazing work, especially if you want to find a way to save your own body while working on clients.  Katrina, Asheville

A ONE BODY Therapeutic Massage Techniques Course Series combines several ways of working with specific areas of the body (e.g. back, torso, pelvis) – all within comfort – to relieve stress, pain and imbalances. Instead of just one technique, learn many: movement patterns, release by positioning, isometrics and integration techniques – all in one class! Another Therapeutic Massage course (Get to the Point) utilizes reflex points to work with the endocrine system and neuro-lymphatic reflexes.

“Very effective and gentle ways to work that create profound and lasting changes in the client…see results of ‘less is more’.”  – Susan, Birmingham

Companion Movement and Exercise courses to each course in the One Body Therapeutic Massage Techniques series provide specific exercises for clients – both to release structural imbalances and discomfort, and to integrate changes experienced during a bodywork session.

“Self Care provided easy and effective techniques for myself, and for clients who ask: “What can I do to help myself?”  – Gail, Wilmington

Ethics courses in the One Body system address professional roles, boundaries, and standards as well as exploring stages in serving others.

“The instructor provides a very open and safe environment to share ethical issues and experiences, and to learn and interact with other therapists.” – Nancy, Charlotte

Science courses focus on the differences in the impact of the brain and hormonal changes for men and women, and related support resources.

Energy Work courses explore integrative therapeutic approaches for heartful healing, as well as subtle self-correcting movements and shifts in levels of being.

“Perfect complement to range of other modalities, and easier on practitioner’s body.” – Dan, Grand Forks
