Originally developed for rehabilitation, it is also excellent for targeting specific muscles and various fibers within certain muscles to increase flexibility, ROM and improving muscular strength.

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.

Looking for a potent way to work both more easily and more effectively?  Come back to basics: remind yourself—and teach your clients—how to breathe anew. Learn to notice your unconscious breathing patterns, and discover the ways your habits may be holding you back. Learn how to breathe with less effort, and more effectively, and feel your work, too, getting easier and more effective. You will also learn how to read your client’s patterns, experimenting with delivering simple visualizations and breathing tips, which will give you a new means to communicate with your client. Deepen your awareness of your own body and its abilities, and deepen your client’s awareness at the same time.

Participants will
• become aware of the unconscious ways that they (and their clients) breathe, through breath awareness exercises and visualizations.
• find simple ways that they can subtly alter and enhance their own breath.
• become aware of how the breath can be a tool to regain one's focus.
• experience how the therapist can offer the client simple verbal suggestions and visualizations during (and after) the session in order to make the client more aware of his own breathing, and to use the breath to enhance the depth and effectiveness of the massage.
• feel how attention to your client’s breath enables you to silently read your client, and work more effectively without working “harder."

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

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.

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.
