This course is designed to focus on the skillful application of myofascial and soft tissue techniques that will allow deeper access to the fascia and muscular layers of the body. This comprehensive combination and layering of techniques will create long term results and generate a greater sense of relief from chronic muscular tension. Chronic muscular tension patterns can reduce blood flow and restrict the removal of metabolic wastes, resulting in pain and loss of function. Typical superficial and passive massage techniques often do not provide the desired relief; this can be frustrating for the client as well as the therapist and it can actually cause more reflexive muscular tension. The practitioner will learn treatment strategies that are direct, purposeful, and easy to apply with the intended purpose of releasing these muscular tension patterns. The practicing therapist will learn how to use:  tissue recognition, myofascial release, cross-fiber friction, passive movement, neurological inhibition, breath and positioning to enhance the overall effectiveness of each technique. The ultimate goal is reaching the desired treatment outcome, securing longevity and feeling a sense of personal satisfaction from bodywork that is ‘practitioner friendly’ and effortless to apply.

Prerequisites:  This course is open to massage therapists who with to learn more on the topic.

Please bring:  1 set of sheets, face cradle cover, pillow w/pillowcase, hand towel, unscented lotion/cream, and note taking supplies.

Reflexology is based on the ancient Chinese theory that energy is flowing all around our bodies.  If the energy can flow freely then we are balanced and healthy.  If the energy is obstructed, illness may result.

Reflexology involves the application of gentle pressure to reflex points located on all parts of the feet.  These points relate to the internal organs, glands and structures of the body.  The feet reflect, and are a mirror of the body.  Pressure on reflex points can therefore affect and normalize the functioning of the body.  The body's natural ability to heal itself is stimulated and health is restored.  Everyone can enjoy the benefits that reflexology offers.

Participants will learn to utilize a variety of massage techniques integrating stones and herbal components to enhance the healing qualities of Reflexology.

Course Name: INTRODUCTION TO AROMATHERAPY
CE Hours: 6
LIVE STUDY/ WORK WITH HANDS ON THE BODY
COURSE OUTLINE:
The INTRODUCTION TO AROMATHERAPY class is based on the ancient and modern
science of exploring ESSENTIAL OILS for therapeutic and health promoting benefits,
as well as an alternative to synthetic perfumes.
DURING THE THEORY/ POWERPOINT SECTION of this class the students will learn
the history of aromatherapy, the methods of sourcing and applying essential oils, the
most popular plants and their healing qualities, including the anatomy of the limbic
system, the 5 energy bodies, 7 major Chakras, including glands and organs.
DURING THE PRACTICE SESSION of this class, the students will learn how to safely
blend and dilute essential oils, create the client consultation and choose the appropriate
oils for adding to treatments like massage, reflexology, skin care & balancing the
chakras. We will also learn how to create a blended Essential Oil perfume.
The students will practice on each other, experiencing both giving and receiving various
mini treatments.
LEARNING OUTCOMES & BENEFITS:
One of the main benefits of Aromatherapy for Massage Practitioners is the
instantaneous balancing action of calming or stimulating signals to the limbic system, as
well as relieving muscle tension.
Essential Oils can be administered topically or through inhalation via steam or diffuser :
• Promoting general well being and stress relief, resulting in a stronger immune system
and deeper sleep
• Helping to relieve chronic pain and to recover from injuries or medical treatments
• Healing emotional traumas
• Helping to regulate blood pressure, soothe tight muscles, relieve allergies and balance
hormones
These benefits have been recognized and aromatherapy is now widely offered
in spas and wellness centers.
A continued practice of Aromatherapy may awaken a deep interest for advanced
professional training in other energy healing modalities.

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.
