Meet your teachers...
Many many years ago, after practicing massage for quite some time, Josh began a long journey as a teacher at a Chicago massage therapy school. At that time Amanda was well into her career in corporate finance. Neither was aware of the others existence. Both were looking for something more. Amanda's dissatisfaction with her current path steered her into a possible career in the healing arts at... Josh's massage therapy school.
Ever the consummate professional, Josh waited until the appropriate time to make something happen. Many years later they still debate about who noticed who first. Now Josh and Amanda are both practicing professional massage therapists with a combined 16 years of experience, in a loving, committed relationship, with an almost 2 year old daughter.
Amanda gravitated toward pre and postnatal massage and is currently working as a Birth and Postpartum Doula with The Chicago Doulas, while also pursuing her Cross Certification with ProDoula. Check her out at The Trillium Doula for more information regarding her pregnancy services. Aside from teaching massage, Josh has worked with various chiropractors, professional athletes, super luxury hotel spas, and senior citizens. Josh has extensive training in Feldenkrais Method, Fascial Stretch Therapy and NeuroMuscular Reprogramming, and is also an accredited Continuing Education Provider through the NCBTMB for his fellow bodyworkers.
Together, Josh Cantor and Amanda Herlihy have distilled their thousands of hours of education and experience to bring you their favorite techniques in a fun and approachable workshop. The big idea is to teach how to incorporate massage into your everyday life.
