Massage Therapy Continuing Education Hours: 45 CEUs

- Presented In-Person - $1100

Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) is a very effective yet gentle manual technique that is easy on the therapist’s body and well tolerated by even highly-sensitive clients. MLD reduces swelling and detoxifies the skin and superficial fascia by promoting drainage within the superficial and deep systems of the lymph vascular network.

Instructor Nicola McGill establishes a supportive class environment in which you’ll learn the anatomy and physiology of the lymphatic system and effective MLD sequences that can reduce swelling and other symptoms associated with: Post-surgical edema; soft-tissue injuries; rheumatoid arthritis; fibromyalgia; whiplash; migraine headaches; PTSD; anxiety disorders; mild, medically-uncomplicated lymphedema; and more!

11/6-7/2021 - Active Assisted Stretching For Upper & Lower Body With Ben Benjamin PhD

Massage Therapy Continuing Education Hours: 14 CEUs

Presented In-Person - $350

This intensive, hands-on, two-day workshop teaches you a comprehensive, effective stretching protocol for the upper and lower body that can be performed on your clients in 50-60-minute sessions. Active Assisted Stretching (AAS) energizes the body, enhances the health of the tissues, increases flexibility, protects the body from injury, enhances the healing process, re-aligns the fascia and makes building strength more effective. AAS is especially good for athletes, the elderly, and the injured, and can also benefit the neurologically impaired. Add this full-body program to your practice as a stand-alone service, as a compliment to your client’s massage therapy session, or split into upper or lower body sessions that can be performed in under a half hour.

12/4-5/2021 - Precise Deep Tissue Techniques For The Muscles And Ligaments Of The Anterior, Lateral, And Posterior Neck

Massage Therapy Continuing Education Hours: 15 CEUs

Presented In-Person - $350

The neck is a strong, vulnerable and complex structure. It is the most movable part of the spine, and yet is strong enough to balance and support the head, even with chronically poor posture. The neck is also one of the most common areas of client complaint, injury and dysfunction, and can be a challenging area to treat effectively. Skillful deep tissue work in this area is not about brute force; it's about precision and strategy, informed by knowledge of the anatomical structures. It's rare to find massage therapists who really know how to massage the neck in a precise, specific way--especially around the small muscular and ligamentous attachments--even though this is where the muscles and ligaments are most commonly frayed and/or inflamed.
