Anatomy Trains Structure and Function with Carrie Gaynor - FULL! CLICK HERE FOR WAIT LIST INFORMATION!

Fri - Sun, August 23 - 25

This is the first workshop to combine Anatomy Trains theory alongside structural and functional anatomy and analysis. It blends the concepts of tensegrity with elastic recoil for movement efficiency and illustrates how we use the Anatomy Trains as lines of force transfer. We will address differential diagnosis to help identify motor control or soft tissue restrictions and where they may be coming from – we will show you the interdependent relationships between many of the tissues and how they interact.

*Our next Anatomy Trains workshop, Structural Essentials: Abdomen, Chest, & Breath with Carrie Gaynor is open for registration.

Deep Tissue for the Torso and Deep Back Muscles with Brian Utting

Sat, Oct 19

These muscular structures support the core--they are integral to maintaining balance, structural alignment, ease of breathing, mobility, and the ability to function without lower back pain. In the morning, you will learn specific, potent, and effective Deep Tissue techniques to release the iliopsoas, QL, iliocostalis, and serratus posterior inferior.

Assessment & Treatment of the Lumbar and Sacral Ligaments with Brian Utting

Sun, Oct 20

One of the elements commonly missing when working with back injuries is a better understanding of, and ability to specifically palpate, the terrain of the low back and sacrum, particularly connective tissue structures like the various supporting ligaments. These ligaments are every bit as important as the muscles, bones, and fascia, but are often overlooked by massage therapists, chiropractors, and physical therapists.

Cupping Massage & Gua Sha Therapy with Souri Sisavath

Sat- Sun, Nov 2-3

This two-day training will prepare practitioners to effectively utilize the traditional therapy known as cupping and GuaSha.  Cupping is a medical practice where cups are placed on parts of the body to create a suction effect which raises the skin and draws the blood to the surface. From Olympic athletes, to clients with acute or chronic tension, cupping is a highly sought-after therapy for its unique and profound effects.

Massage for Knee Problems with Marc Frazier

Sun, Nov 10

There is more to chronic knee pain than merely “tight” quads or hamstrings. The knee is a load-bearing joint between the longest bones in the body. Both its structure and function are greatly affected by the mechanical relationships between the hips, ankles, and feet. The knee also reflects the way the weight of the pelvis and trunk are supported and carried by the lower limbs. Learn more...

Clinical Massage for Thoracic Outlet and Neuromuscular Neck with Bob Steine

Sunday, Dec 8

One of the most important benefits a therapist can provide is very effective work with the neck and with thoracic outlet syndrome.  At least one out of four clients will present with symptoms of neuromuscular neck pain.  The good news is massage therapy - when the therapist is thoroughly familiar with the anatomy of the anterior and posterior neck as well as techniques for all these muscles - is often the most efficacious response to this pain and tension syndrome.
