Description   Pillossage™ is a groundbreaking modality that combines hands-on techniques with specifically designed thermal flax pillows. 
These innovative protocols deepen the therapeutic effect.

Mission   The mission of Pillossage™ training is to educate and excite bodyworkers to successfully integrate the age-old property of heat  with compression and stretching in new and creative ways.
Global Vision
   Pillossage™ therapy will revolutionize the way healthcare professionals approach pain management.  Our vision is a world in which a thermal flax pillow becomes a bodyworker’s second  favorite tool. 


Pillossage™ and Thermal Connective Tissue Release will help the therapist slowly and gently work through the layers of soft tissue to reach the deeper origins of pain as deep as the periosteum.  Level 2 includes extensive Self-Care techniques using Mother Earth Pillows® that will help you maintain your body while teaching your clients how to maintain the work you have done during their session and how to achieve Self-Care for their specific pain patterns.

Clients often want ‘deep-tissue-massage’ but if discomfort is created by the therapist during the massage session, natural guarding will actually increase pain.  This may block your opportunity to reach the causative factors of pain.  Using Thermal Therapy, the therapist can access deep tissues that otherwise are too painful to affect.

Classes teach you how to add  stretching, movement, Assisted Gravitational Stretching and focused compression.  Clients benefit from increased range of motion and decreased pain and leave your table simply amazed!

Pillossage classes remain small to assure 1 on 1 attention for all techniques taught.  Class content will inspire the new therapist as well as intrigue and excite the experienced therapist. Classes cover theory along with approx 80% hands-on exchanges. 

and Thermal Connective Tissue Release Techniques can be used alone or to create one of the freshest, most innovative Massage Modalities to be introduced in years!  Finally, therapy tools that deliver increased therapy & value for clients with less strain for the therapist.

Feedback from each class has been positive and therapists find  the new techniques are applied in almost all their client sessions.  You’ll love the therapy you receive as you learn!
