This professional communication and ethics course focuses on connecting to a greater awareness of intention, presence, and focus. Observing the internal landscape with attention at the quiet still level of the mind cultivates an intuitive awareness of personal patterns. Through relaxed focus and deep sensorial listening a heightened self-intelligence informs a greater understanding of your intuitive signals when internal ethical conflicts arise. This level of internal understanding is an invaluable awareness to recognize external conflicts, your personal reactions, and strategies throughout the entire conflict resolution process. Research-based mindfulness tools such as meditation, breath awareness, and somatic movement have been shown to positively affect autonomic physiological processes. Awareness of the qualities of contact, presence, mindfulness, and self-awareness leads to a transformative care-giver/care-receiver relationship. Mindful engagement with the present moment benefits you and the care-receivers you work with.

LEARNING OUTCOMES & BENEFITS:
One of the main benefits of Aromatherapy for Massage Practitioners is the
instantaneous balancing action of calming or stimulating signals to the limbic system, as
well as relieving muscle tension.

• 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
• Helping to regulate blood pressure, soothe tight muscles, relieve allergies and balance
hormones
These benefits have been recognized and aromatherapy is now widely offered

If you are struggling with deep tissue massage and clients requesting more pressure, this is the class for you! Transform your practice, refine palpation skills, and help your clients attain unprecedented healing outcomes with Cross Fiber Techniques. Extend your therapeutic portfolio integrating cross fiber friction techniques as both a full body and site-specific modality. An emphasis is placed on attainting depth, not increasing pressure. Research suggests that sustained or deep friction techniques are capable of altering the consistency and density in deep fascia helping to restore tissue glide. Cross Fiber Techniques positively influence fascial behavior to maintain mobility in soft tissue, decrease dysfunction and pain, reduce adhesion and densification, produce a therapeutic inflammatory process enhancing increased blood and lymph flow which aids in tissue rehydration and healing.

Integrated Natural Health prides itself on offering smaller intimate classes with a learning environment of comfortable collaboration. We are committed to focus on proper body mechanics in all classes. Longevity of a massage therapist’s career is dependent on the efficiency, fluidity and ease of movement around the table and in the execution of massage techniques. Expect an abundance of individualized table-side attention.
• Please bring:  
• 1 set of sheets
• A large bath towel

COURSE OUTLINE:

Foot Reflexology is based on ancient Asian and Indian holistic energy healing
modalities, developed into the modern zone & reflex system by around 1930. It is now
widely popular in Spas, Massage Studios and has even found its way into the malls.
This class is an introduction to understanding the basic anatomy of the Five-zone
System and the Reflex Points. A Reflex Point is a specific area or point on the foot that
corresponds to another specific part of the body.
DURING THE POWER POINT SECTION of this class, the students will learn how
energy channels in the body are mapped into Zone-Systems and Reflex- areas on the
feet, corresponding to organs, glands and Chakras, indeed to our entire body.

on each other, to experience both giving and receiving a basic foot reflexology
treatment, practicing correct hand placement and reflexology techniques, incorporating
breathing and essential oils for added relaxation.

LEARNING OUTCOMES AND BENEFITS:
Understanding how foot reflexology works will empower the students to apply the basics
of energy healing and offer a relaxing treatment to family, friends and clients.
Feeling the results of a treatment that can relax the entire body, may inspire the
students to continue on a holistic path to wellness,
We will explore the addition of breath and Aromatherapy to add value to the treatment.
The skill of how to balance, relax and energize the entire body and its systems is a very
desirable addition to any other healing modality, or it can be experienced as a treatment
of its own.
Students will learn to design their own signature treatments incorporating the art and
science of reflexology.

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.
