Register by: Monday,  December 22, 12:00pm

This course is focused on the skillful application of soft tissue techniques that allow deeper access to the fascia and muscular layers of the body. This approach creates a greater sense of relief from chronic muscular tension. Muscular tension patterns can reduce blood flow and restrict the removal of metabolic wastes, resulting in pain and loss of function. The typical superficial and passive massage techniques do not provide the desired relief; this often causes frustration and more reflexive muscular tension.

The practitioner will learn treatment strategies designed to break these muscular holding patterns that are direct, purposeful, and easy to apply. The practicing therapist will learn how to use: cross-fiber friction, passive movement, neurological inhibition, breath and positioning to enhance the overall effectiveness of treatment.

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

Please bring:  1 set of sheets, unscented oil/cream, and note taking supplies.  Wear comfortable clothing and supportive footwear.

Reiki has made such a huge impact on my life, that I felt compelled to share this wonderful energy with others.  I was blessed to receive my first attunement in early 2009 and then took the fast track to Master Teacher, so that I could share this beautiful energy with as many as possible. I am committed to helping clients achieve new levels of healing and personal growth. In my practice, I have witnessed over and over again the powerful ways that Reiki can touch people’s lives and the profound healing that is possible with it.  I have been teaching Reiki since 2009 and am happy that we can bring it to the Cortiva Institute – PA, where I am also a Massage Therapy Instructor. I also currently maintain my own Massage Therapy and Reiki Healing practice in home.

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.
