EFT (aka the Emotional Freedom Technique) is an innovative method for rapid stress-reduction that is gaining popularity among massage therapists, health-care professionals and the general public.  EFT is grounded in behavioral theories of exposure, conditioning, and reciprocal inhibition, combining psychological exposure and cognitive restructuring with the stimulation of acupoints. The stimulation of acupuncture points has been shown over the course of a ten-year research program at Harvard Medical School to rapidly reduce limbic system arousal, and is based on the well-documented phenomenon of acupuncture and acupressure analgesia.   A recent review article published in the Review of General Psychology reported that over fifty studies have demonstrated efficacy for EFT and other forms of acupressure desensitization.   EFT is a ‘broad spectrum’ technique that can be effective for a wide range of emotional and psychosomatic conditions.

This introductory session will present an overview of the theory, research and applications of EFT, and will include live demonstrations of the technique; with time for individual practice and Q & A.

SPECIFIC LEARNING OBJECTIVES
1.  Describe how EFT is related to classical behavioral exposure theory.
2.  Name three conditions for which published research has found EFT to be effective.
3.  Name three applications for which EFT may be used for in the offices of massage therapists.

Prerequisites: This course is open to all LMTs, bodyworkers, and other health care practitioners interested in learning more on the topic.

COURSE OUTLINE:
The Reiki Level 1 Class is based on the Japanese energy healing modality of USUI
REIKI, it follows the traditional protocol, introducing Reiki intentions, symbols, hand
placements and initiation into Reiki level 1. Included is a short Chakra balancing outline.
( It is recommended to first attend the CHAKRA BALANCING CLASS)
DURING THE THEORY/ POWERPOINT SECTION of this class the students will learn
the history, principles, symbols and benefits of REIKI, including the anatomy of the
energy bodies, Chakras, glands and organs.
DURING THE PRACTICE SESSION of this class, the students will practice on each
other, learning the client consultation, intentions, use of the symbols, the hand
placements, balancing the chakras, possibly adding breath, aroma, sound and crystals.
The students will practice how to give and receive an entire REIKI session of 1 hr.

LEARNING OUTCOMES & BENEFITS:
One of the main benefits of Reiki Initiation level 1 for Massage Therapists is the ability
to " channel " increased harmonious energy into their clients and to avoid absorbing
unharmonious energy released by their client during the massage.
Reiki energy can be administered to food, water and plants, resulting in a "blessing" of
harmonious energy frequencies.
For people and animals there are many benefits including:
• 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
• Regulating blood pressure, soothing tight muscles, relieving allergies and balancing
hormones
These benefits have been widely recognized and Reiki is now offered in many medical
establishments and hospices.
A continued practice of Reiki level 1 may awaken a deep interest for advanced
professional training in other energy healing modalities.

TIMELINE BREAKDOWN:
15 MIN Guided meditation and affirmation
2 HRS POWER POINT/LECTURE: the history, principles & symbols Reiki, the anatomy
of the five energy bodies, the Chakras, the endocrine system and organs. Client

Professional Ethics for Bodyworkers

In the rapidly expanding field of massage therapy, concerns regarding ethical behavior and practice are also on the rise.

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.

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.
