About the event

With nearly 20 years in the field, Nicolas Sorensen LMT is a master of the trade. Complex Joint Recvoery (CJR) is the result of helping hundreds of clients work through injury recovery, rehabilitaiton, and chronic stress. It's a specific technique that targets the neck, shoulders, and hips (complex joints). This work is targeted and deep as well as relaxing and gentle. Rather than directly "attacking" trigger points or tension, CJR is a way to faciliate release through indirect pressure, structurally supportive movement, and muscle isolation. 

This unique massage combines the best of four different techniques: Swedish massage, sports massage, Thai massage, and deep tissue. The benefits include faster recovery from injury, more circulation to affected joints, increased flexibility, decreased pain levels, and movement-assisted tension release of muscle tissue. 

This comprehensive training includes:

  • 4 days of hands-on learning
  • Clinical hours with clientele
  • Bound and printed manual, with detailed visual aids, anatomy guides, and photos
  • Video recording of the complete CJR flow for professional study

The training shedule:

Day One: Level One CJR + Clinic

  • Morning: A whole-body overview of CJR with foundational techniques
  • Afternoon: hands-on practice with bodies

Day Two: Level Two CJR + Clinic

  • Morning: Advanced CJR techniques
  • Afternoon: hands-on practice with bodies

Day Three: Clinic + Flex Day

  • Finish up remaining content
  • Afternoon: hands-on practice with bodies

Day Four: Transitions + Intuition Training

  • Bringing everything together in a working flow with Embody Wellness clients who have experienced this technique before and can give constructive feedback.
  • Bringing more finesse and connectivity to your transitions between techniques. This is a critical foundation of the CJR technique but will also benefit every other massage modality you currently practice. This is a more in-depth immersion into and expansion of traditional Swedish massage that you most likely didn't learn in massage school.
  • Learning tips on reading the bodies and energy of your clients to make your flow more responsive and adaptive to their needs

Therapists who complete this five day training (and certification packet) can advertise themselves as CJR Certified. This training will set you apart in your massage work as the go-to therapist for complex joint recovery. We look forward to working with you!

Tuition: $1100

The training is Mon-Thurs, 9 am - 5 pm daily with lunch breaks at Noon.
