Cupping and Gua sha are modalities of Chinese medicine that increase micro profusion or micro circulation at a superficial level in muscles that are tight or in areas where there is congestion or stiffness.  Increased blood flow to muscles and surrounding tissue brings in oxygenated blood and fluids to carry out metabolic waste and deliver the components that are needed for tissue repair.  They also help to break up any superficial adhesions in the tissue that might be contributing to muscle tension and pain.  

This class will teach you myofascial cupping and scraping techniques for sections of the body in a session. It will utilize aspects from the massage curriculum including but not limited to: friction, compression, eastern massage theory and principles. In addition, it will include anatomy and physiology theory.

Prerequisites: Prerequisites
A basic knowledge of massage therapy strokes anatomy and physiology
 
Please bring: Hand sanitizer, wear loose comfortable clothes for massage, 1 flat sheet, 1 fitted sheet, massage oil, pen or pencil and a notebook.

Because Migraine headaches and their causes are not fully understood this makes the treatment of them even more difficult than other headaches. Therefore it’s important that we examine some of the underlying elements that can be responsible for these dreadful headaches.

The intention of this continuing education program is to:
Reduce the amount of migraine headaches a patient may suffer over a course of time, usually in 1 month increments.
Reduce the severity of the pain and effects that they have come to deal with and accept, which will allow the person to once again be more productive and active.
Reduce the medication that they are presently taking; as these medications become stronger, they also have strong side effects.
Relieve pain and try to stop the migraine in its tracks.
Prevent migraine headaches by removing key elements that can be responsible for their development.
As we learn this information we’ll also take a look at the anatomy in a way that we may never have viewed it before, and using a treatment pattern to care for the muscles that are affected and part of the problem. By helping a patient realize what they can do to help the situation along with Massage Therapy properly applied, Migraine sufferers are able to once again take back control of their lives.

This is a lecture and hands-on class that will help participants assist patients in reducing migraine headache intensity, frequency, and reduce the need and use of pain medication through massage and life style changes that can be the cumulative cause of the migraines.

Participants will learn to assess the patients’ needs, provide a treatment plan, and understand the anatomy of a migraine and traditional methods of treating them.

Those attending will see that massage therapists can influence positive results for their patients, helping them to return to regular routines and reclaim their lives.

What is PNF Stretching? Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) is an advanced form of flexibility training that involves both the stretching and contraction of part of the muscle, the whole muscle, or even a muscle group that is being targeted.

PNF stretching was originally developed as a form of rehabilitation for stroke patients, and to that effect it is very effective.
It is also excellent for targeting specific muscle groups, increasing flexibility and range of motion as it also improves muscular strength.

PNF stretches takes advantage of the sudden vulnerability of the muscle and its increased range of motion by using the moments immediately following the isometric contraction to train the stretch receptors to get used to this new, increased, muscle length. This is accomplished by the final passive stretch.

PNF stretching is one of the most effective forms of flexibility training for increasing range of motion.
While there are several variations of PNF stretching, they all have one thing in common - they facilitate muscular inhibition. It is believed that this is why PNF is superior to other forms of flexibility training.

By using this method, therapists not only gain tremendous improvement in their patient/client, but at the same time they can reduce the strains on their own body helping to preserve their hands and extend their career.

This is a hands on Class.


Class needs: loose fitting clothing, no jeans.

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.
