45 CE hours

*NEW DATE* Monday, August 3-Saturday, August 8, 2015; Monday-Friday: 8:00am to 5:00pm, Saturday: 8:00am to 2:00pm

This 5 1/2-day MLD certification course is based on the techniques developed by Dr. Emil Vodder, Ph.D., MT. When skillfully applied, this therapeutic form of soft-tissue mobilization dramatically enhances lymph formation and promotes drainage within the superficial and deep systems of the lymph vascular network. This helps reduce edema associated with many conditions. MLD also promotes general relaxation and detoxifies the skin and superficial fascia.

During this course, students will be instructed in anatomy and physiology of the lymphatic system. Basic MLD treatment sequences for indications such as post-surgical and post-traumatic edema; fibromyalgia; rheumatoid arthritis; migraine headaches; tinnitus; as well as mild, medically uncomplicated lymphedema will be demonstrated and practiced. Each day will be divided into two sections: theoretical and hands-on application.

Participants will be able to:
• Demonstrate an understanding of the anatomy and the relevant scientific terminology related to the lymphatic system
• Demonstrate an understanding of the differentiation between the normal and diseased states of the lymphatic system (physiology and pathophysiology of the lymphatic system)
• Demonstrate an understanding of the indications and contraindications related to the use of MLD
• Competently perform the techniques of MLD for all body areas
• Develop appropriate treatment strategies for indications such as post-surgical edema, post-traumatic edema, fibromyalgia, general detoxification and other conditions
• Competently perform MLD on clients after breast surgery for cancer (clients at risk to develop lymphedema)
• Competently perform MLD on clients with mild, medically uncomplicated, primary or secondary lymphedema

This course is offered to all: Licensed/Registered Massage Therapists, PT, PTA, OT, COTA, ATC, RN, and MD.

*Massage therapists must show proof of completion of a minimum 500 hours training program or be certified through the NCBTMB.

In these tough economic times, protecting one’s livelihood as a massage therapist by learning how to prevent injury is more important than ever. Research has shown that 77% of massage therapists experience symptoms or injury during their careers, due to the physical demands of their work. Injury can have both short and long-term effects on a therapist’s ability to maintain their normal workload, advance in their career and, in some cases, even remain in their profession.

Yet injury is NOT inevitable; in fact, there is a great deal that massage therapists can do to prevent these injuries, and to lessen the impact of injury on their work life if it does occur despite their best efforts.   The Save Hands!® Workshop shows massage therapists how to save not only their hands, but their back, neck, shoulders and emotional well-being throughout a long, healthy career.

Since multiple factors are involved in causing injury, a successful prevention strategy must be holistic and multifaceted, combining a number of tactics to address all potential causes.  In a 6-hour workshop combining interactive demonstrations and hands-on work, participants will learn the primary elements of this holistic approach to injury prevention, including:
• Developing awareness of the primary risk factors for injury, and recognizing and reducing risk factor exposures in their hands-on work
• Learning principles of good body mechanics to reduce effort and stress
• Finding alternatives to stressful techniques that can cause symptoms or injury
• Taking care of their general health, to promote healing and overall wellness
• Recognizing warning signs and symptoms of injury and treating them early and effectively before they lead to injury

A considerable portion of the workshop will be spent doing hands-on work in groups of three, with the guidance of the instructor.  During hands-on work, participants will learn to identify stressful techniques and postures and help each other correct them, with guidance from the Instructor.  At the end of the workshop, participants will be encouraged to develop their own personalized injury prevention strategy, using the information provided and adapting it to their own bodies and situation.  For more information, go to jkordish.massagetherapy.com.

Participants need to bring $34 (check or cash) payable to the instructor to the workshop for the required text “Save Your Hands! The Complete Guide to Injury Prevention and Ergonomics for Manual Therapists, 2nd Edition." Please bring a set of linens, massage oil or lotion, and any massage tools you use in your practice or that you have questions about to the class.

This hands-on, dynamic class will teach you advanced techniques readily applicable to your massage practice on Monday morning! Many muscles contribute to pain in the low back. Most of them don't even live in the back! Low back pain causes hundreds of millions of dollars of lost productivity in the United States each year. So, knowing that most back pain is actually caused by muscles in the front of the abdomen and gluteals is very important for the clinical-minded massage therapist.

The abdominal muscles (recus, obliques and psoas) are key to core strength, balance and stabilization. If they harbor trigger points and taut bands, their function can be compromised, leading to poor posture, poor balance, pain when sitting, and pain when standing too long. Knowing the full treatment protocol for elimination and rehabilitation of muscles,  will make a huge difference in your practice, and will increase your practice due to improved return clients and personal referrals.

We will learn powerful hands-on techniques to deactivate trigger points in muscles causing pain and dysfunction in the low back. Wear or bring; Sports bra, sports shorts or bathing suit bottom.

Mary Biancalana
From the very start of my career in massage in 2000, I was drawn to solving problems and finding solutions for client’s pain and dysfunction problems. Myofascial Trigger Point therapy gave me that road map to use. As an already licensed and professionally trained teacher with 9 years of experience in teaching and curriculum development for the Chicago Board of Education, I was drawn to teach and further the understanding of this body of knowledge from my first days in bodywork. I began teaching and re-developing curriculum for the only professional training program in Trigger Point Therapy outside the east coast, here in Chicago. I went on to become a Nationally Board Certified Myofascial Trigger Point Therapist in 2004 and LMT with the grandfathering clause built into the Illinois State Law. I have renewed my Board Certification each 5 year renewal period, with over 100 CEU’s earned over the 5 year period. I am currently the President of the National Association of Myofascial Trigger Point Therapists, and have served as 9-time national conference chairperson.
I have been teaching and lecturing prodigiously from 2000 to the present day, teaching over 14 weekend courses per calendar year as well as special event teaching each year including state conference meetings, live broadcast of national webinars, national conference lectures, massage school continuing education for their graduates and most notably the William Beaumont Army Medical Symposium on Integrative Medicine. I also attend other professional development conferences and symposiums each year, including but not limited to the International MYO Pain Society meetings, The American Academy of Pain Management Meetings, University of Pittsburgh Medical School Symposium on Myofascial Pain, National Association of Myofascial Trigger Point Therapists (11 Conferences attended), a one day workshop given by renowned Osteopathic physician, Dr Leon Chaitow, Breathing Pattern Disorders in Myofascial Pain, Neuromuscular Therapy Symposium, University of Illinois.

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.
