Course Details
What is PNF Stretching? Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) is an advanced form of flexibility training that involves both the stretching and contraction of part of the muscle, the whole muscle, or even a muscle group that is being targeted.

PNF stretching was originally developed as a form of rehabilitation for stroke patients, and to that effect it is very effective.
It is also excellent for targeting specific muscle groups, increasing flexibility and range of motion as it also improves muscular strength.

PNF stretches takes advantage of the sudden vulnerability of the muscle and its increased range of motion by using the moments immediately following the isometric contraction to train the stretch receptors to get used to this new, increased, muscle length. This is accomplished by the final passive stretch.

PNF stretching is one of the most effective forms of flexibility training for increasing range of motion.
While there are several variations of PNF stretching, they all have one thing in common - they facilitate muscular inhibition. It is believed that this is why PNF is superior to other forms of flexibility training.

By using this method, therapists not only gain tremendous improvement in their patient/client, but at the same time they can reduce the strains on their own body helping to preserve their hands and extend their career.

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 class is open to LMTs, as well as non-massage professionals interested in learning more about the topic.

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

In this class we will discuss myofascial pain syndromes (MPS) and how they affect muscles, joints and skeletal structures, leading to pain, loss of function and movement.  Most MPS disorders are produced by multiple trigger points.  Understanding of how trigger points develop and interact with each other, enables the practitioner to design effective treatment protocols that address all of the trigger points typically involved with common pain disorders.  The Art & Science of Myofascial Trigger Points Workshop is designed to give the practitioner the knowledge and confidence to address the complete picture of a MPS complaint and therefore effectively provide lasting pain relief.

Please Bring: A full set of sheets; unscented lotion; gym/jogging shorts; female participants are requested to wear a sports bra or swimsuit top. Refrigerators and microwaves on site for food items and several dining establishments in the area.

PLEASE NOTE: Closed toe shoes are required in all hands-on CE classes.

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.

Because Migraine headaches and their causes are not fully understood this makes the treatment of them even more difficult than other headaches. Therefore it’s important that we examine some of the underlying elements that can be responsible for these dreadful headaches.

The intention of this continuing education program is to:
Reduce the amount of migraine headaches a patient may suffer over a course of time, usually in 1 month increments.

Reduce the severity of the pain and effects that they have come to deal with and accept, which will allow the person to once again be more productive and active.
Reduce the medication that they are presently taking; as these medications become stronger, they also have strong side effects.

Relieve pain and try to stop the migraine in its tracks.
Prevent migraine headaches by removing key elements that can be responsible for their development.
As we learn this information we’ll also take a look at the anatomy in a way that we may never have viewed it before, and using a treatment pattern to care for the muscles that are affected and part of the problem. By helping a patient realize what they can do to help the situation along with Massage Therapy properly applied, Migraine sufferers are able to once again take back control of their lives.

This is a lecture and hands-on class that will help participants assist patients in reducing migraine headache intensity, frequency, and reduce the need and use of pain medication through massage and life style changes that can be the cumulative cause of the migraines.

Participants will learn to assess the patients’ needs, provide a treatment plan, and understand the anatomy of a migraine and traditional methods of treating them.

Those attending will see that massage therapists can influence positive results for their patients, helping them to return to regular routines and reclaim their lives.
