05/09/2021 - Structural Bodywork Fundamentals with Thomas Damron

6 CE hours - Presented In-Person - $150

Structural Bodywork Fundamentals is an introductory workshop aimed at the therapist who wants to learn how to include their clients in the therapeutic process. This style of bodywork views the client as an active participant and has the overarching goals of improving client awareness and increasing available options for movement. You will walk away from this course not only with a handful of useful techniques but the thought process behind them and the critical thinking necessary to apply them effectively. The skills gained in this workshop will augment your existing skills and provide you with tools to more effectively engage and empower your clients to take an active role in their physical health both in session and at home.

In this class, we will look at the lower leg and foot with an integrated approach from an orthopedic and reflexology background. There are various common pathologies that affect the lower leg and foot. The lecture portion will begin a discussion of how to approach client intakes with active discernment of subjective information. Then, a brief overview of the reflexology map of the foot and how areas of dis-ease in other parts of the body may manifest in the foot.

06/25-27/2021 - LomiLomi 'Hawaiian Temple Bodywork' with Jason Bratcher

24 CE hours - Presented In-Person - $475

LomiLomi is an ancient bodywork modality that was created by the Kahuna Healers of Hawaii. The dance-like movements and techniques that are applied create an interconnected flow giving a feeling of being totally supported and cared for while receiving. This bodywork and the philosophy behind it conveys the "Aloha Spirit" and beauty with which the Hawaiian culture honors and celebrates itself. This bodywork is becoming more popular and sought out by massage practitioners and employers for the amazing experiences both therapists and clients have when giving and receiving and because the techniques save your hands and wrists from fatigue and burnout, making an even more valuable skill to learn

08/01/2021 - Piriformis Syndrome and SI Dysfunction with Ani Williams

6 CE hours - Presented In-Person - $150

Piriformis syndrome and Sciatica are similar yet different conditions that affect up to 40% of the population. As common as these conditions are they are also misunderstood. This continuing education course will introduce orthopedic tests to allow you to differentiate between the two and treat them accordingly. You will also learn causes, stretches and massage techniques to address acute symptoms as well as tools your clients can take home. Becoming well versed in this rapidly growing condition will not only increase your clients overall quality of life, it will also enhance your therapeutic skill set.

09/04/2021 - Mindfulness and Movement for MTs: Advanced Body Mechanics with Kelly Bonanni

6 CE hours - Presented In-Person - $150

As therapists we regularly assess posture, gait, mood, and general health of the client, but how often are we assessing the same criteria within ourselves? This class will delve into these ideas and provide tools for self-care as well as working body mechanics. We will explore some gentle movement and breath awareness to find some relief in our own bodies, and during session trades, we will find the delicate balance between effort and ease by refining our alignment. There will also be time allowed for participants to ask about their specific concerns about body mechanics and self-care so we can workshop them together.
