Same day registration is also possible however space is limited and places are offered on a first-come-first-served basis.

Joint Release was created and taught by Amaro Hograefer for VSBM/VSOHA. After assisting Amaro for several program intakes, Marie became the Joint Release instructor for the VSOHA Bodywork Therapy Program and completed her Trager Level 1 in 2018.

This evening will give graduates an opportunity to review, observe, give, and receive this light, flowing and rhythmic modality. Do you feel you’ve been working too hard in your treatments? Allow Amaro’s Trager-inspired techniques to invite the question, “What could be lighter?”
