The professional Amma massage training offered at L’Attitude is unique in Quebec and around Canada. The Director of L’Attitude, Michel Van Waeyenberge, is the first Amma instructor in Canada. He was trained by David Palmer at "The Amma Institute"of San Francisco. Michel took 1300 hours of classes before starting to teach this approach in Quebec and now in France. He continues to perfect his Amma skills by occasionally going to California and Japan. To ensure the transmission of his knowledge, he in turn trained three Amma instructors, including Sophie-Hélène Martineau, who teaches with him.

Swedish

Next session:

Fall 2018 - Winter 2019

440 hours

A classic bio-mechanical approach, Swedish massage aims first and foremost to balance muscle tone by working specifically and deeply on areas of tension. It stimulates blood and lymphatic circulation, helping to revitalize the whole body. Swedish massage maintains and improves the amplitude of body movements through joint manoeuvres. Through the diversity of its manoeuvres and its global or specific application, Swedish massage can be adapted to the client's needs, whether it is relaxation or a more specific musculoskeletal approach.

Trager

Next session:

Fall 2018

580 hours

The Trager is a kinaesthetic and psycho-corporal approach, where we use movements to feel the deep tensions of the body. The practitioner transmits through movement the sensations appropriate to the specific needs of the client, whether biomechanical or neurological. It is a process of education and rehabilitation and a lot of research confirms the therapeutic power of the Trager. There are different ways to adapt the approach to the client's needs. A Trager session is usually given on a massage table, but can be adapted very well on a chair. In addition to the practice, Mentastics (mental gymnastics) are added so that the client can continue the rehabilitation work.
