Patty Ceccoli, LMT, CST (FL license # MA11807) has been a massage therapist and seminar leader since 1990 and '94 respectively. After graduating from massage therapy school in FL., she stepped into her new field by working at a chiropractor's office. The experience was exceptional in that she was not only taught about bodies but also by bodies. Having always had an intuitive nature, it now kicked into high gear as the bodies presented her with what seemed like an illogical healing plan. The results, on the other hand, were unquestionable. Patty jokingly refers to this period of 'body tutoring' as her Master's degree.
After a year and a half, she moved into private practice as she continued to explore the properties and technique of following each body's specific healing pattern and requirements. It was within this exploration that two questions would persistently come to mind: 1. "Why can't we tap into the body's healing pattern and requirements for ourselves?" and two "How do I teach this to others?"
The answers to both these questions came through practicing movement, which she had been introduced to years prior, even before becoming a massage therapist. The form of movement evolved into what Patty has named Modified Movement with Clinical Modified Movement being the application for bodyworkers of all genres to tap into the intuitive body, the part of the body that knows its own requirements and pattern for healing.
The beauty of this form lies in its inherent simplicity. The form provides structure and format to be able to teach the intuitive connection into the body when partnered with massage or other forms of bodywork. On a personal note, it carries the ability to access the intuitive level inside each of us.
In 1996, Patty and her husband had the opportunity to move to Georgia where they continue to reside, enjoying the delightful southern lifestyle. Patty's thriving private practice is in Carrollton, GA. She has been a licensed continuing education provider for her profession (NCBTMB #329132-00 Category A) since 2002.
