Air Beautiful Travel Massage Specialist Training. Part I: Travel Prep and Recovery Massages

April 23, 2018 @ 5:30 am - 9:30 pm


ondays; 4/23/2018, 4/30/2018 and 4/30/2018 from 5:30-9:30pm.  12 CEUs.

The travel industry is a power house of the US economy. Direct spending by travelers in the U.S. averaged $2.7 billion per day in 2016. (U.S. residents logged 1.7 billion trips for leisure purposes and 457 million trips for business purposes in 2016).

The travel industry is a profitable and competitive market for licensed massage therapists,
because every traveler more or less suffers from travel-related issues and looks for
quick remedies.

As licensed massage therapists, you can take the initiative to better understand travel related health issues and to help your clients travel well and live well. Therapists with a clear understanding of travel-related massage will be highly desirable at service oriented establishments, such as luxury hotel spas, where therapists are required to foresee and satisfy the demanding needs of frequent world travelers.

Traveling is human nature, and the current population in the United States alone totals
about 323.1 million people. We can logically deduce that travel-related issues belong to
every one of us in the U.S., and therefore travel massage specialists are in demand in
every corner of our society. This program is the fruit of Snow Shimazu’s life journey and the crystallization of who she is, and she looks forward to sharing this training to
help others like you become a travel massage specialist and capitalize on this profitable market.

Snow Shimazu (MA, LMT, CLT, ARCB, RYT) crafted an innovative travel massage program that was born naturally out of her own need to prevent and recover from the damage caused by her frequent traveling. When she realized that the majority of her clients suffered from the same agonies brought on by frequent travel, she formulated a specialized program that combines her years of diverse and multi-disciplinary experiences and training in massage, manual therapy, yoga, meditation, traveling and luxury service to help people prevent and recover from the damage caused by traveling.

Snow has experienced luxurious hospitality as a guest, a therapist, and a consultant, and she now brings this innovative travel massage program to Cortiva Massage School to educate and train her fellow LMTs and health and wellness professionals.

Full Certification as an Air Beautiful Travel Massage Specialist requires completion of two certified classes:

Part I- Travel Prep and Recovery Massage
Part II- Jet Lag Adjuster Massages and Beyond

In the Part 1, the training will allow the participants:
• To understand the physiology of traveling, especially what happens to our bodies in the air cabin, and during other types of traveling.

• To analyze the imbalances that travel may cause from a variety of Western and Eastern perspectives, and to generate reasonable and effective treatment plans.

• To learn two types of Travel Recovery Massage protocols and one type of Travel Prep Massage protocol with utilizing the ideas and techniques of Swedish Massage, Shiatsu, Ayurveda, Aromatherapy, and more.
