Ep 182 – Listening to Expansion and Contraction: “The Rebel MT” with Allison Denney

Small flat stepping stones on the surface of water.

Aubrey Gowing and Alison Kavanagh, a brother and sister team from Dublin, Ireland, are the founders and college directors at the Holistic College of Dublin. Their lives have been immersed in the world of health and wellness since before they could talk. And now, their ability to talk and teach about all things bodywork seems boundless. Join Allison Denney as she sits down with Aubrey and Alison to reflect on how the field of massage therapy continues to expand, and how their ability to listen to expansion and contraction continues to point them in the right direction.
