~We'll spend the morning learning about the herbs, passing them around, discussing their properties, cutting them up and preparing them into a fresh & dried herbal compress which you make, use, and then take home.
~Toward the end of the day I'll show you techniques for using the packs during a massage, and you'll have time to get and give a short 45min-1hr session (floor or table) using the steamed compresses.
~A comprehensive textbook is included. Dvds and other support products (other herb books, thai pants, and more) available for sale. There will also be unused herb packs, and possibly loose bulk herbs, as well.

Advanced Corrective Therapies:  Kinesiology animation presentations will expand the therapist’s knowledge of muscle fiber direction and agonist/antagonist relationships as they pertain to specific actions.  These visual aids are used to assist in hands on isolation techniques for superficial and deep muscles. Once isolated, our focus shifts to layering corrective techniques. These techniques include site-specific deep transverse friction, displacement, stripping and compression. This course is design to create an insatiable quest for results as therapists navigate through isolated tissue on a journey to release adherent muscle fibers, reduce pain and increase range of motion by reducing restriction. You will be amazed how refined your palpation skills will become when you change direction.

This is a “Hands-On” course designed for massage therapists working in both private and medical practices as well as spa settings.  A cross fiber friction massage facilitates the bodies healing processes allowing the body to repair soft tissue damage, release adhesions, lessen acute or chronic pain and reduce the recurrence of chronic pain syndromes. Utilizing Cross Fiber Friction Principles and Advanced Corrective Therapies, participants will learn to therapeutically assist their clients to reduce pain, increase range of motion and maintain an efficiently functioning musculoskeletal system.

Prerequisites:  This course is open to massage therapists and other healthcare practitioners who wish to learn more on the topic.

Professional Ethics for Bodyworkers

6 CE contact hours / NCBTMB approved
Subject: Sports Therapy

In the rapidly expanding field of massage therapy, concerns regarding ethical behavior and practice are also on the rise. Given the intimate setting of bodywork, it is crucial to establish a safe environment and a clear understanding between client and therapist as to what is expected. Therapists must also be able to effectively communicate within the parameters of each individual's unique personality, including their own.

The intent of this workshop is to define the broad scope of ethics, empower each therapist with their own personal Code of Ethics, and explore possible ethical situations which will challenge participants to make good decisions as to how they respond.

Prerequisites:
Class is open to all message therapy students and LMTs.

Please Bring:
Writing utensil, paper.
