Morales Method® Pain Specialist Program

The San Francisco School of Massage is pleased to offer – in conjunction with the Morales Method®

of Manual Therapy and Body Conditioning – The Morales Method® Pain Specialist Program. All bodywork CE workshops taken at SFSM will be taught by Sharon Oshita, ATC and Morales Method® Certified Instructor and Marty Morales, Certified Advanced Rolfer™.


The Morales Method® Pain Specialist Program is meant to take your skills to the level of “Bodyworker”, where you are seeking to resolve pain and injury issues with your clients while working efficiently and safely.

With this method you will learn techniques derived from Osteopathy, Muscle Energy Techniques, Cranial Sacral therapy, Myo-fascial bodywork, and Positional Release. The most effective techniques from these premier modalities are integrated together into a way of working that creates a bodyworker who is able to adapt to different client situations. Techniques range from subtle to deep tissue and enable the practitioner to make their work more of a ‘thinking game’ rather than performing rote strokes.

Becoming a Morales Method® Pain Specialist gives you the specialization that lets you stand out from the crowd from a highly effective modality that is growing worldwide attention.
