Overview Course description:

Therapeutic taping (Kinesio Taping™) has become a staple in the world of rehabilitation and sports medicine and is rapidly gaining popularity in more general bodywork applications.  By preventing overuse/overcontraction of stiff muscles, activating weak muscles, assisting in lymph flow, and reducing pain and swelling in irritated or inflamed tissues it can help prolong the effects of your massage treatments for a period of several days.  Therapeutic taping can be used to facilitate posture and alignment corrections, and gently re-educate the neuromuscular reflexes into more functional patterns.  All classes will cover the unique properties of Kinesio®Tex tape and concepts of application.  Each module will cover different tissues and/or goals of treatment and different types of tape cuts to achieve the goal.  This functional approach allows the practitioner the opportunity to design a course of treatment for each client based upon the client’s needs and not a predetermined formula.

Basic Therapeutic Taping 1: September 20, 2014 9-4pm. Principles of Kinesio-Tex tape, general muscle applications- Students will learn to apply Kinesio®Tex tape to inhibit overactive muscles, activate weak or poorly firing muscles, reposition fascia, and facilitate postural alignment.  We will discuss the stages of rehabilitation of an injury and how to change the tape applications as healing progresses.  Tape cuts will include “I”, “Y”, and “X”.  Tape applications will include: deltoid, rhomboids, erector spinae, hamstrings, knee, neck strain (whiplash), TMJD, thumbs, and gastrocnemius/Achilles tendon strain.  

Therapeutic Taping  2: October 4, 2014 9-1pm. Advanced Techniques for fascia release, circulatory (lymphatic) flow, treating scars and bruises.- Students will learn taping techniques to reposition and/or align fascia, remodel scars, “space corrections” and “lymphatic channeling” to reduce pain and edema of acute injury or inflammation, functional or “spring” corrections to facilitate correct joint movement and minimize dysfunctional movement during the healing process.  Tape cuts will include “fan”, “web” or “lantern”, and “donut”.  Students will practice taping for fractures, sprain/strain, carpal tunnel syndrome, frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis), ITB friction syndrome, sciatica, plantar fasciitis.

Therapeutic Taping  3: October 5, 2014 9-1pm. Advanced Techniques for joint stabilization, tendon and ligament strains - This class will focus on taping techniques that support joint, tendon, and ligament injuries from the acute phase through the rehab phases of treatment.  These techniques, called “mechanical corrections”, can also be used to support a chronically injured joint/ligament when the body part will be stressed.  Students will practice selecting and combining taping techniques for a variety of joint dysfunctions including TMJD, shoulder dysfunctions (instability, impingement, postural distortion), herniated discs, patellar tracking syndromes, shin splints, ACL stabilization, metatarsal arch support.

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

Please bring: Will be outlined in your registration confirmation letter once payment is processed.

Cupping is a technique used to produce more effective circulation in areas of the body where there is pain and stiffness. The practitioner creates a vacuum in a cup and then places the cup on the skin of the client. The vacuum makes the cup stay in place on the skin and thereby improves local circulation.
Many massage clients come for relief of stiffness or pain in the shoulders, back, or lower back. Cups are easy to apply to these areas, while the practitioner continues to treat the legs.  This can be a very effective way for massage therapists to make their treatment more successful.
Traditionally the vacuum was applied by burning alcohol in a glass cup and then placing the cup, once the alcohol has burned off and created a vacuum, on the area to be treated. This method will be demonstrated. Students will learn how to cup various body parts with a widely applied method using a vacuum pump and plastic cups. The advantage of this method is that there is no danger of burning your client. In case there is enough time there will be an opportunity to practice the classical method.
Contraindications of cupping will be explained, as well as proper care of the equipment, according to the OSHA rules.

Please bring: Students need to bring sheet and towel.

Prerequisites: None, this class is open to LMTs, students of massage therapy, and non-massage professionals interested in learning more on the topic.

CranioSacral Therapy is a whole body hands on application of gentle palpation, traction, compression, and rocking.  The approach with the techniques is to relieve or “release” restrictions, which impair nervous system functioning.  Rooted in Cranial Osteopathic technique, CranioSacral Therapy is now utilized by many healthcare providers, integrating these techniques to their approach to patient wellness.  The body of work presented to you in this class will credit the Upledger model of protocol as well as explore work described in Hugh Milnes ”Heart of Listening”.  CranioSacral work is not a diagnosis or a treatment plan designed by therapists.  It is a way of listening to the patient body; working with the most functional movement and allowing the body to move into new space, range of motion, sensation often experiencing freedom from pain.  The gentle palpations and delicate movements utilized allow the patient body to relax and self correct.

At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:
• Describe the anatomy and physiology of the CranioSacral system
• Understand the biomechanics (physics) of CranioSacral techniques
• Identify and practice palpation of the cranial motion/dynamic
• Evaluate CranioSacral motion at multiple sites in the body
• Acknowledge indications, precautions and contraindications for CranioSacral Therapy                  
• Create a proficient protocol for treatment
• Integrate the CS techniques demonstrated in this workshop in a therapeutic treatment

Please bring: A set of sheets and note taking supplies.

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: senior students in a massage therapy program, massage therapists and bodyworkers interested in learning more about the topic.

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

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.
