“George’s supervision groups are a wonderful way to share information, develop and hone skills, network, vent and just be around kindred spirits. As you may already know, George is a “collector of people,” so you can be sure your classmates will be interesting, whip-smart, and slightly offbeat in a fabulous way. The ongoing support from a diverse but like-minded group of practitioners is an antidote to the burnout, boredom, and isolation that can plague helping professionals. I’ve developed wonderful relationships with each of my classmates; we’ve shared bodywork, job opportunities, copy editing help, and more. George is amazing at creating a safe and fertile environment for exchange and creativity. Each class is interactive, playful, improvisatory, empathetic, and different every time.”

Semi-private Supervision is a group activity that involves many kinds of mutual support. Your work is complex and dimensional. It’s interpersonal, but it can still be lonely. The truth is that most of us don’t talk with anybody about 80 percent of the things we do because a) they’re hard to put in language and b) a vast majority of us don’t talk to our colleagues.
The members of supervision groups are elite, serious practitioners committed to a superior standard of technique, healing, and ethics – that is, to practice in the deepest, broadest sense. They are people who have success behind them and want to share and receive knowledge, skill, and wisdom.
“When you show up at George’s Supervision, you never, ever know what to expect. But you most often leave with a profound discovery about yourself, your personal life, or your professional life. Supervision is always a game-changer for me.”
– Andrea Mosbacher

Whatever part of the touch and movement world you come from: Our scope of practice is more similar than different. We should be sharing everything we know with one another right to the edges of our overlap. I’m a teacher, bodyworker, movement analyst, and chiropractor. My job as an educator is to empower others by giving them anything I know that can help them. I think that that’s everybody’s duty.
“I have known George for over 30 years in numerous capacities. He is a warm and compassionate human being; full of brilliance, humor, heart, and insight. As a student of George’s, I have learned the fine details of assessment, the intricacies of the human body, and the ways that a patient’s daily life and emotions can impact their health. George’s unique teaching style is both intellectually challenging and easily digested and understood. He blends observation, discussion, and hands-on practice to reinforce his concepts and ideas. The relaxed feel of his workshops encourages students to share, query, and test new ideas. His teaching is engaging, challenging, and fun. George has spent his entire professional career dedicated to his patients and to his ideals. He continues to strive to be a better bodyworker and teacher. “

Learn as much as you can about what all touch and movement professionals know and do. No matter who you are, much of it is in your scope of practice. Contact with LMTs can make cueing a personal training client much more effective and massage therapists can learn a lot about exercise and movement from PTs. Imagine how good it feels to share your strengths with your colleagues. As coach Jason Stein says: “Together is Better”.
Burnout is real. It’s common in our fields, and you’ve probably experienced it yourself. When you’re burned out, your spirit, your body, and your creative, intuitive, and cognitive potential suffer. It feels terrible. Supervision can get you back on a successful, happy path.
“I can go to supervision with questions ranging from specific touch techniques to interpersonal issues with clients, and always leave feeling rejuvenated – feeling full of knowledge and excitement about the work we do.”
