  • We guard our body when we are overwhelmed and need protection.
  • Later, the time comes when "The Old Guard" is no longer needed, and instead is interfering with healing.
  • Many people sense this and just don’t know how to affect a change.
  • Many others are not even aware that "The Old Guard" is in place.


Muscle Guarding creates the type of ongoing ache that no amount of massage can fully release.  It is based in held fear, usually from an old injury.

This class is for the massage therapist who wants to know how to assist people to release their “muscle guarding” so that new blood and energy can flow and heal stagnant, aching tissue.

In this class, you will learn the new science of “Neuromuscular Guarding” and how to assist your client to release The Old Guard from their tissues. When you do this during a regular massage session, you will actually feel the rigid tissue change and soften within minutes! The change is palpable, astonishing, and deeply healing for your client.

This skill is easy to learn and tremendously helpful for those clients who never seem to relax enough to allow the massage to do its healing work.

Carman: " I came to Shuna for some work on my neck. It had ached for 18 years and massage usually helps for a few days. She started massaging, then quietly asked if I was aware that I was guarding my neck. I said yes, but that I didn’t know what to do about it. Well, she did! Several minutes later, I “talked” with my aching neck, and I gave the guarding permission to leave. I didn’t know I could do that! It was so easy, and a few minutes later, the ache was gone."

Jeri: I hurt my back 3 years ago and have been guarding it ever since. I just did not want to hurt it again. Deep massage helps sometimes but it really hurts. When I went to Shuna, she realized I was guarding my sacrum and low back and asked if I wanted to try something to let the guarding go. Sure I did! Using BodyMind Bridge imagery, I released the old guarding at last! I got off the table and that area felt completely relaxed for the first time! It was so simple!
