Advanced Wood Therapy Workshop

Featuring Cutting-Edge, Step-by-Step, Hands-On Training

Wood Therapy originated in the Orient centuries ago. However, it is in Colombia that “Maderoterapia” was revolutionized to meet the aesthetic and therapeutic needs of the 21st century. No Colombian Master Wood Therapist has developed more pioneering techniques than Florida Academy’s own Alex Tovar, a physiotherapist with a legendary reputation across two continents. Through this workshop, you will be given a one-of-a-kind opportunity to learn – hands-on – how to apply Alex’s knowledge and unique methodologies to build your own wood therapy client base.

Go Way Beyond the Basics of Body Contouring

This advanced workshop caters to an exclusive group of students who want to take their wood therapy training to a “master” level that goes far beyond the foundation laid during our body contouring workshop. Focusing on the anatomical, physiological, and biometric aspects of this sculpting and therapeutic procedure, students will work side-by-side with Alex to master the art of Maderoterapia using custom-designed, anatomically precise wooden tools.
