Training Manual Therapists

The Myofascial Release and Posture Reading courses offered by ACTIVE SOMA emphasize concepts and skills that expand upon existing as well as original approaches that have proven to be effective.

Nicholas Barbousas (founder of ACTIVE SOMA) has over 22 years experience within Manual Therapy and especially Myofascial Release, and has taught extensively at both an undergraduate and postgraduate level.

Nicholas’ skills as an educator have made him a popular choice for practitioners across the spectrum of Manual and Movement Therapy:

  • Massage Therapy
  • Osteopathy
  • Chiropractic
  • Physiotherapy
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Structural Integration
  • Pilates
  • Yoga


The Myofascial Release course that I did with Nicholas was the most relevant and useful course I have ever done. His depth of understanding and experience in bodywork made the course full of useful practical tips that I began to apply with my clients the next week. I still use them today many years later.
