Learn a dynamic technique for stretching muscles and fascia along fascial lines, specific to joint movement.  Based on the principles of Active Isolated Stretching developed by Aaron Mattes, this stretching system restores greater joint mobility, reduces muscular and fascial tension, corrects aberrant neurological firing and dramatically increases blood and lymph circulation for faster healing from injury.  Aaron’s discovery of the time sensitivity of the spindle cells makes this approach unique for stretching muscle and fascia.  Each stretch is held for about 2 seconds to avoid triggering a myotactic stretch reflex.  Repeated, active muscle contractions return restorative blood and lymphatic flow to the body decreasing inflammation and combating disease.

Leave class with the knowledge on how to stretch yourself and assist your clients.  This class covers every stretch you need in order to treat a wide variety of disorders in the feet, ankles, wrists and hands.  The material presented addresses plantar fasciitis, Morton’s neuroma, hammer toes, ankle sprains/strains, carpal tunnel, epicondylitis, trigger finger and other extremity disorders.  

New to this class is the expansion of AIS into the realm of Anatomy Trains®.  Applying AIS principles to stretching fascia has shown even more dramatic results than previously realized with AI stretching alone.

Bring massage linens.  Wear clothing appropriate for stretching.

There is a $25 materials fee (expanded AIS manual with new protocols) payable at class. *If you prefer, you can print out the materials for free electronically.  Tuition includes a stretching strap for new students.

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.
