What's OPEN Bodywork?

OPEN Bodywork recognizes we're moving and interacting with unique and interesting humans, not just working on  muscle tissue.

The handholds and body positionings are not dictated by protocols and are easily integrated into your existing approaches.

We achieve depth without discomfort with applications that are precise, playful, and thoughtful. And you get to make them uniquely your own.

Protocols do not exist.

Creativity. Efficiency. Flow.

Everything you want and need to know

OPEN Bodywork is a refreshing and artful approach to manual therapy based on the principles of movement, touch physiology and modern pain science.

Ongoing exponential growth

You'll learn how to consistently outdo yourself by capitalizing on what you already know and filling in the gaps, with a guarantee of surprising yourself along the way.

Small classes, tailored just for you

By adapting universal movement principles to bodywork and distilling all modalities down to their core components, you get the keys to unlock your best work.

Eternal value

It took me over TWO DECADES of trial-and-error to crack the code, but as a result,  you get the benefit of all these shortcuts and more in just 2 days with OPEN Bodywork.

About the Course

Who is this class for? 

OPEN Bodywork is an All-Levels class.

It's ideal for you if you approach massage as an art form and strive to stay updated about how it works according to current research. It's also great inspiration for veteran practitioners who feel like they've been in a "rut" lately, as well as newcomers who hope to prevent physical pain or injury throughout their career and start it with a strong foundation.

A wide rage of participants have attended and loved OPEN Bodywork:

  • massage therapists, of course
  • bodyworkers
  • yoga and somatic therapists
  • manual therapy and movement professionals like PTs and OTs
  • even acupuncturists and other HCPs have taken the class and gotten a lot out of it!
  • Basically, if you use your hands to work with people, you'll enjoy this class.

I designed OPEN Bodywork for professionals who strive for stylistic individuality, endless inspiration, and greater physical ease in their practice to s career longevity.

All you need to bring is yourself, your curiosity and a set of clean linens. You may also rent linens for $5.00.

Wear loose, comfortable clothing. You may chose to work with clothes on or practice with draping, at your discretion. It all depends on your style and what you most want to get out of this class, which varies for everyone.

Everything is else is onsite, including some light snacks. There is 1 twin-mat available if anyone prefers practicing on the floor. Just be prepared to move and have fun!  Note: this is a shoe-free environment. For other details about the location click here.

Great question! For starters, there's a reason why this is called a one-of-a-kind class, and that's because it is! The methods are entirely experiential, not observational. It must be learned into your body.

Think of it this way: 
No matter how many martial arts videos you watch, you'll never really learn effective self-defense without physical training involving real-bodies and proper coaching... I say this as a trained martial artist who still gets coaching ;) Anyone who claims this is possible frankly has no idea what they're talking about and is only going to get you or someone else hurt at some point. Make sense? OPEN Bodywork is just like that.

This class effectively packs 20+ years of ninja-moves safely into 2-days. I have the ability of helping participants advance exponentially because I earned a proven track record of doing so with hundreds of students at varying ranges. Not many people have dedicated movement methods for accomplishing this, specifically for massage application.

At least 1 class of OPEN Bodywork is needed before videos may translate safely and well. Otherwise it would be a waste of your time and money and that's something I DON'T do ;) You get way more than what is paid for in this class, even if there were no videos.

I agree that manual therapy videos can instruct fantastically for most techniques and modalities, but this is simply not that type of class. I know once you experience OPEN Bodywork, you'll agree, too. 🙂

You're in for a real treat :) 

Most often we do not need to change anything we're doing, we only need to switch out the lens we view it through to explore the dynamics of our craft with increasing accuracy

You already have the skills and talent. Now you get to realize how much further those can go... and continue going...

With OPEN Bodywork you gain a renewed perspective of what matters most in hands-on practice and in creating an ideal alliance with clients

On the practical side, you embrace your physical creativity and watch your work adopt new meaning, distinctiveness, and flow in a way that only keeps getting better

Fall in love with what you do all over again

 Love from participants

If you're looking for science-based techniques with tons of heart and playfulness, Tania and OPEN Bodywork overflow with both."


Thank you so much for that class again! I loved it. My technique has changed; my patients love it.


I would recommend this class to anyone who needs CEU’s and wants to experience a very well organized, interesting and engaging class!"



I would like to thank you for your workshop that helps me to understand how important my body mechanics, movement and flow are during my session. All those concepts and practical techniques I have learned from you are so tremendous to improve as well as adapt along with any modalities that I apply. I’m certain to keep practice this technique in the future."

As a new practitioner of Massage Therapy, I found OPEN Bodywork to be transformative to my education, approach in client treatment and even personal philosophy. Having so many questions not simply met with just an answer, but with an unbiased and critical lens, is what made it all tangible for my practical use.

 I have had better results when considering the nervous system before addressing the client’s chief complaint directly. Now, it’s the only way I choose to work. I only wish I could have come across this kind of information at the start of my career. Thank you so very much Tania!" 


There's no "routine".

Your body, your practice style, and the people you treat are unique. So, what's the point of yet another cookie-cutter modality?.

The OPEN Bodywork process is efficient, effective, and mutually beneficial. It's been designed to nourish your career longevity and help YOU feel good, too.

Just bring your curiosity to the table and
make it your own.

There are an infinite variety of techniques from all over the world presented by different schools of thought, but there are actually only a few fundamental underlying concepts unifying them all.

OPEN Bodywork frames all of these variations into a no-nonsense and down-to-earth approach that is simple to digest and even simpler to implement. It's effortless. When you're open, you find new inspiration and keep growing.

OPEN Bodywork is about genuine connection. It's where curiosity meets efficiency. It's the place from where we can consistently perform our best work. Best of all... it's lots of fun :)
