This class is split into two sections: Maternity Massage and Infant Massage class.

During the Maternity Massage section of class you will: review of the basics or receive an introduction to the specialty pregnancy massage, learning safe and effective pregnancy massage client positioning,  draping and pregnancy massage techniques and precautions and contraindications to support women through their healthy pregnancies.

During the Infant Massage section of class you will learn how to teach parents/caregivers how to bond and develop healthy attachment in a meaningful way with their baby.

You will learn how to teach massage techniques that ease discomfort; relieve tension; facilitate healthy weight gain; techniques to relax parents and baby; help the parents/caregivers incorporate loving touch, use calming tones and soothing words, communicate good touch and compassion for your baby, helpful hints for specific ailments/conditions (colic and gas, chest and nasal congestion, premature babies), and general massage techniques specifically for babies and their stages of growth.

Are you leaving work in pain? Body mechanics is defined as: the application of kinesiology to the use of proper body movement in daily activities, to the prevention and correction of problems associated with posture, and to the enhancement of coordination and endurance.

Let’s face it, massage therapy is a very physical profession and there is a high instance of provider injury. We will explore strategies to eliminate your thumb dependency and abuse, reduce your job related wrist, shoulder and back pain.  The main focus of this class is individualized table-side attention to identify and bring awareness to your personal patterns and postural stressors. Together we will work on alterations to bring comfort, ease and fluidity to your movement!

Fascia Release Therapy is the handle into the endless web of techniques to facilitate ease in motion and optimal health.  Fascia is a three-dimensional web that surrounds, supports and separates the organs, muscles, bones, and nerves. It provides the body with its structural support. The fascial system is in a constant search to maintain equilibrium. This amazing system resists and adapts to changes, it absorbs and distribute the shocks of movement, and maintains a balance between the opposing forces of compression and tension.

Many people suffer from chronic myofascial pain syndromes caused by postural stress, overwork, fatigue, and direct trauma. Participants in this course will identify myofascial restrictions and their direction. They will learn to administer techniques with appropriate depth and duration to challenge this barrier. A resultant kinesthetic awareness of the sensations of fascia release occurs.  This technique helps the therapists deepen their intuitive touch as they allow their clients body’s natural intelligence to help guide the treatment protocol. This course is appropriate as refresher or your first introduction to fascia release.

At Advanced Corrective Therapies© we are committed to focus on proper body mechanics in all classes. Longevity of a massage therapist’s career is dependent on the efficiency, fluidity and ease of movement around the table and in the execution of massage techniques.

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

Please Bring:  1 set of sheets,  a large bath towel, a breast towel, unscented lotion/cream, note taking supplies~Smiles, an Open Mind, and a Willingness to Look Beyond What is Obvious

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.
