The Medical Massage Seminar That Is Your Bridge To $100K Income

This seminar is not about just renewing your CE hours. It's the first step in the bridge we have built for you to a highly successful practice and 100K-plus yearly income. We teach you how to use and integrate Medical Massage into your practice, which opens up your access to the medical community and enhances your reputation. Instead of treating secondary pain syndromes, we teach you how to detect pain's initial trigger and eliminate it by restoring proper function of soft tissues, while engaging the patient's central nervous system as the main therapeutic tool.

Imagine being able to eliminate TMJ Dysfunction, Tennis Elbow and Carpel Tunnel pain in just 3 to 5 sessions ... Vertigo and Chronic Headaches 90% of the time or eliminate the need for shoulder and back surgeries in many cases. All these things are possible if you learn 100% science based Medical Massage from The Science of Massage Institute.

Starting with the origin of innervation of the affected area, we take you step by step through detailed examination and successful rehabilitation of the soft tissue using a layer by layer treatment tactic. We introduce you to the integrative approach to Medical Massage and teach you how to combine Lymph Drainage Massage, Connective Tissue Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Postisometric Muscular Relaxation, Cross Fiber Friction and Periostal Massage in one treatment session. After our seminar you will be able to customize therapy to each patient according to his or her needs.

Only The Science of Massage Institute can offer:
• A Medical Massage seminar where every technique and protocol is backed by 100% science
• Instruction by Dr. Ross Turchaninov, the absolute authority on Medical Massage in America
• The ability to “Watch and Follow” our exclusive Video Library to better learn protocols and techniques
THE INSTRUCTOR
Acclaimed author, teacher and physician Dr. Ross Turchaninov is the founder of The Science of Massage Institute and is recognized as the Western World's leading expert in Medical Massage therapy.

Course Name: INTRODUCTION TO FOOT REFLEXOLOGY
CE Hours: 6/ $130

LIVE STUDY/ ENERGY WORK WITH HANDS ON THE FEET
COURSE OUTLINE:

Foot Reflexology is based on ancient Asian and Indian holistic energy healing
modalities, developed into the modern zone & reflex system by around 1930. It is now
widely popular in Spas, Massage Studios and has even found its way into the malls.
This class is an introduction to understanding the basic anatomy of the Five-zone
System and the Reflex Points. A Reflex Point is a specific area or point on the foot that
corresponds to another specific part of the body.
DURING THE POWER POINT SECTION of this class, the students will learn how
energy channels in the body are mapped into Zone-Systems and Reflex- areas on the
feet, corresponding to organs, glands and Chakras, indeed to our entire body.
We will learn how to consult with the client, prepare a safe practice environment and
how to practice the basic foot relaxing & thumb walking techniques.
We will explore the importance of relaxation as an antidote to chronic stress, and we will
also learn about the benefits of essential oils and relaxing breathing techniques.
The students will have hand outs of protocols, active participation is encouraged.
DURING THE PRACTICE SECTION of this class the students will take turns practicing
on each other, to experience both giving and receiving a basic foot reflexology
treatment, practicing correct hand placement and reflexology techniques, incorporating
breathing and essential oils for added relaxation.
Wearing vinyl gloves while giving a treatment will be encouraged.

LEARNING OUTCOMES AND BENEFITS:
Understanding how foot reflexology works will empower the students to apply the basics
of energy healing and offer a relaxing treatment to family, friends and clients.
Feeling the results of a treatment that can relax the entire body, may inspire the
students to continue on a holistic path to wellness,
We will explore the addition of breath and Aromatherapy to add value to the treatment.
The skill of how to balance, relax and energize the entire body and its systems is a very
desirable addition to any other healing modality, or it can be experienced as a treatment
of its own.
Students will learn to design their own signature treatments incorporating the art and
science of reflexology.
Good health and homeostasis depend on the clear and vibrant energy flow in our
bodies.

TIMELINE BREAKDOWN
2 HRS, POWER POINT/ LECTURE on the History & Anatomy of the Reflexology
System, and how energy manifest in the body.

•  WHAT MAKES ONE MASSAGE ABSOLUTELY AMAZING FOR BODY, MIND & SPIRIT, while another massage is just mediocre?
•  WHAT ALLOWS SOME MASSAGE THERAPISTS TO THRIVE IN OUR WORK AND IN OUR LIVES, while other massage therapists get hurt and/or burnt out?
•  WHAT MAKES MANA LOMI® MASSAGE WORKSHOPS POWERFUL, INSPIRING, AND GREAT FUN?

About Mana Lomi®
Mana Lomi® is massage done with DEEP yet GENTLE, LOVING touch. It is clinically focused, structure specific, problem solving massage, which pays special attention to BONES for healing at all levels, if so desired. Mana Lomi® is a lomilomi healing practice from the Big Island (Hawaii) via the LINEAGE of Aunty Margaret Machado & Dr. Maka'ala Yates, D.C.

Mana Lomi® workshops are designed to inspire both beginning and experienced massage therapists to further develop our own body awareness and our palpation skills in order to provide amazing massage which relieves and/or resolves physical maladies as we support our clients in deeply experiencing their bodies, and feeling on multiple levels the best of who they are. When done skillfully, Mana Lomi® is highly effective treatment massage that also feels wonderful to receive, making it equally valuable in medical and wellness focused settings. Mana Lomi® massage supports deep relaxation as well as injury prevention and recovery.

The power and effectiveness of a massage has much to do with attitude and presence of the person giving the session, and their quality of touch. In Mana Lomi® classes you will learn to apply pressure using body weight rather than strength, and to smoothly transition from stroke to stroke. These practices help protect our own backs, shoulders, wrists, thumbs and entire bodies from injuries. You will also learn to meet your client’s body with presence, matching or modulating pressure as needed, and maintaining consistent connection with your client at the level of their bones. This is powerful work!

Mana Lomi® can be used to effectively relieve and/or eliminate symptoms related to joint & muscular pain and movement restriction, joint replacement, surgery preparation & recovery, sciatica, injuries from falls and/or repetitive use, arthritis, lupus, fibromyalgia, headaches, asthma and other breathing problems, depression, emotional pain related to loss, high stress lifestyle, cancer, Parkinson's disease, problematic posture, pregnancy, and more.

ABOUT THE INTRO CLASS
•  Watch a demo of the Mana Lomi as done on a massage table, including beginning and advanced level work.
•  More that half the class is hands on: students learn several Mana Lomi techniques to do with the client prone.
•  Be introduced to spiritual concepts used in Mana Lomi®

Please bring: one bottom sheet, one top sheet, face   cradle cover/pillow sheet, 2 hand towels. Optional: pillow and/or blanket. Wear comfortable clothing.  Encouraged but not required: contribution for potluck lunch.
