One of three entry points into the Foundations in Myofascial Release Seminars: The Upper Body begins at the core, teaching you a simple but very effective means of connecting your findings with your client’s pain or dysfunction. Using a well-defined Feedback Loop, the Foundations Approach makes treatment quite simple. Therapists who have taken seminars through the Foundations Seminars Approach have reported that they learned effective interventions quickly and easily and are able to integrate the newly learned concepts immediately. Even those therapists with previous experience in myofascial release (MFR) trainings find value in the Foundations Approach, not only to learn different approaches/techniques, but through learning ways to use this effective modality. After learning a core understanding of nervous system and soft tissue change, the application of treatment flows smoothly. Autonomic nervous system engagement, cutaneous nerve/skin-based approaches, as well as the more traditional “fascial approaches” to pain relief will all be addressed in an easy to understand fashion. Having a deeper model of understanding of the explanations behind this work makes for a much more effective therapist.
The Upper Body Seminar includes valuable evaluative and treatment perspectives on the arms, shoulders, thorax, neck, and head regions. But more than just a collection of techniques, you will learn how to apply these concepts anywhere in the body, with nuanced variations in stretch direction and style that allows you to further engage your patient in the process and alleviate their pain or symptoms.
Foundations in Myofascial Release Seminars are designed for both beginner and experienced therapists. Massage therapists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, and speech language pathologists will all find value in these fast paced and enjoyable hands-on classes. Using an easy to follow approach, Foundations Seminars will build the confidence of a beginner to start using this valuable modality from the first day. Those who have taken other myofascial release seminars will find fresh a fresh approach to evaluation and treatment. Integrating a nervous system based approach creates entirely new openings for the therapist to follow. Pain which was previously explained in a nebulous manner, taking into account the supposed far-reaching effects of the fascial system can now be explained in a plausible fashion using simple neuroanatomy and neuroscience. While many therapists may prefer to continue on the fringe of acceptance, many more are reaching for credibility. Foundations Seminars supports you!
The Upper Body Seminar is 20 hours/2.5-days and require no prerequisites. All are approved by NCBTMB for 20 CE Hours. Approval for SLP’s, PT’s, PTA’s, OTR’s, and COTA’s varies on a state-by-state basis. Please inquire for specific approval for these and other professions, as many will have been previously approved.
You may have noticed the small number of seminar choices within the Foundations lineup. We are all trained therapists, with a license to touch and experience in anatomy, physiology, and clinical reasoning. Any manual therapy modality need not be time-consuming and expensive to master, though many schools lead you to believe otherwise. The Foundations Approach is a simple one; connect with your patient’s pain and create change. This need not be made more difficult that it is. The principles you will learn in the Foundations Approach Seminars are easily applicable to most of your existing training as well. After over two and a half decades in this field, Walt Fritz has created a very simple approach to dealing with pain. Please consider joining him for this Upper Body Seminar.

CranioSacral Therapy is a whole body hands on application of gentle palpation, traction, compression, and rocking.  The approach with the techniques is to relieve or “release” restrictions, which impair nervous system functioning.  Rooted in Cranial Osteopathic technique, CranioSacral Therapy is now utilized by many healthcare providers, integrating these techniques to their approach to patient wellness.  The body of work presented to you in this class will credit the Upledger model of protocol as well as explore work described in Hugh Milnes ”Heart of Listening”.  CranioSacral work is not a diagnosis or a treatment plan designed by therapists.  It is a way of listening to the patient body; working with the most functional movement and allowing the body to move into new space, range of motion, sensation often experiencing freedom from pain.  The gentle palpations and delicate movements utilized allow the patient body to relax and self correct.

At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:
• Describe the anatomy and physiology of the CranioSacral system
• Understand the biomechanics (physics) of CranioSacral techniques
• Identify and practice palpation of the cranial motion/dynamic
• Evaluate CranioSacral motion at multiple sites in the body
• Acknowledge indications, precautions and contraindications for CranioSacral Therapy                  
• Create a proficient protocol for treatment
• Integrate the CS techniques demonstrated in this workshop in a therapeutic treatment

Please bring: A set of sheets and note taking supplies.

• Steiner Education Group is approved by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB) as a continuing education Approved Provider and is also sponsored by NCBTMB to teach New York LMTs continuing education that is accepted by the state of New York for license renewal.

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:

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.
