Hybrid Health seminars, led by Justin Kobbe Solace, offers evidence informed massage therapy and pain science education focusing on technique and theory that can be integrated by all massage and manual therapy practitioners.
Justin Kobbe Solace has been a massage therapist for 14 years, a massage educator for 11, strength trainer for 9 and holds a master’s degree in Kinesiology. He was the program chair of massage therapy at Broadview University Boise from 2011-2014 where he was awarded Faculty of the Year. He has studied with many of the great massage educators of our time and continues to teach across the country alongside his mentor Whitney Lowe.
After over a decade of study and teaching, Justin has realized that many massage workshops teaching therapeutic techniques are not easily integrated into practice. The goals of his seminars are to teach clinical reasoning and technique in a way that all therapists can begin using in their practice the next day.
“There are many clinicians in massage who venture into education without recognizing that there is a very different skill set for these two different paths. Justin Kobbe Solace has worked diligently to improve himself both as a clinician and healthcare provider as well as an educator. I have had the great fortune to work with him in our orthopedic and clinical massage programs and he has demonstrated an enthusiastic interest in keeping content current and exploring innovative teaching strategies to help the students be the most successful they can be. I count myself as lucky to have him as a colleague and help him share his experience with the profession at large. It is rare to find an individual highly talented as a clinician and as an educator and this combination makes him ever more successful at both.” – Whitney Lowe
“I’ve known Justin for years, and I always look forward to spending time with him. His classes are sure to be full of great information, offered in a caring, accessible, and fun-filled way. If I were in practice, I wouldn’t miss an opportunity to take a class with Justin.” – Ruth Werner
Used these techniques on my client this week with Fibro that started in 91 with a lower back injury – she texted later in the day and said she hasn’t felt this good in a VERY LONG TIME!!!! – Past student

This was a fantastic workshop! Lots of information and great hands on to practice what was taught. Sure beats sitting in front of a computer all day to get CEU’s! Thank you Justin Kobbe Solace! – Past student
“I have known Justin Kobbe Solace professionally for over 10 years. As a physical therapist I often refer patients for massage therapy to Justin. I get consistent excellent feedback about his manual therapy skills and professionalism.” Dr. Rob Barnes DPT
“Justin was my favorite teacher in school because he demonstrated the highest expectation of what a massage therapist should be. By taking care of himself, he’s able to go above and beyond the call of this profession. His passion, dedication, and charisma not only helps evolving massage therapists to unlock their full potential, but he also helps clients who are seeking the same.“ – Past Student
“I’m an athlete and a mom and a physician with a strenuous physical career. Needless to say, I need to stay fluid and pain free for lots of reasons. Justin has always been a thoughtful, professional expert. I’ve never been to anyone who uses the same sort of techniques based on a true understanding of how the body works. I send many of my acute pain and chronic pain patients as referrals. Strongly recommend.” – Heather Hammerstedt MD MPH, CEO, Wholist
