    CORE I Intensive with Pentony o'hagan

    T3 Education is owned and run by SMA members Pentony O'Hagan and Danielle White.

    CORE I Intensive: Technique — CORE I focuses on the basic ideas of the CORE Philosophy of good, safe deep tissue bodywork: assess, learn to access the correct layer of resistance, create movements and breath work for the client, and integrate any and all work done. We also cover intention, the psoas muscle, lines of fascia, appropriate homecare cues and focus on the CORE® one session recipe, which we also observe, practice on each other, and on a client. The pre-requisite for CORE I is that you hold an existing soft tissue qualification e.g. massage, physiotherapy or osteopathy . Any hands on therapist with curiosity would truly benefit from this class!

    COST: £297 (instalment payment options also available)
