LIVE STUDY / ENERGY WORK WITH HANDS ON THE BODY

COURSE OUTLINE:
The Chakra Balancing Class is based on the ancient Indian Ayurvedic Marma Point
healing modality and the 7 Major Chakras Energy System in the body, similar to the
Meridian System in Chinese Acupressure.
This class is an introduction to understanding the anatomy of the five energy bodies and
the energy channels called Nadis & the Major Chakras.
DURING THE POWER POINT SECTION of this class, the students will learn how the
seven major chakras influence our body, mind and spirit, personally and collectively.
This is an interactive class beginning with with a guided meditation, affirmations, breath
exercises and printed hand outs for the students to fill in during the power point.
Student participation is encouraged at all times.
The meaning of each chakra is explored in regards to the elemental nature of the
Ayurvedic principals, the seven corresponding glands of the Endocrine system, each
seven year human life cycle and the seven archetypes.
DURING THE PRACTICE SECTION of this class the students will learn techniques for
opening and balancing the seven major chakras. The focus of this class will also be in
learning how to stay " neutral" not diagnosing or trying to fix anything,
just allowing the energy in the body to do the opening and balancing work.
Various energy tools including breathing exercises, intention, affirmation, guided
meditation, aroma therapy and crystals are integrated with Hand On applications.
The students will practice HANDS ON CHAKRA BALANCING on each other, mats or
massage tables may be used.

LEARNING OUTCOMES & BENEFITS
The knowledge of how to understand, activate and balance the chakras can be
integrated into ones personal life or any preferred healing modality. Student will be
encouraged to design a short hands on session to practice on themselves or each
other, integrating the tools of chakra balancing with their preferred healing modality.
Good health and homeostasis depend on the clear and vibrant energy flow in all five
of the the bodies of a person.
When integrating targeted and customized energy work, a practitioner of any healing
modality will be more successful in facilitating a significant shift in the person they are
treating, including oneself, allowing the body to do its own healing work.

Course Details
16CEU's

The three most common shoulder dysfunctions are elevation, protraction and internal rotation. This 16-hour upper body course begins with an in-depth exploration of the fascia arm meridians and how they interact with the meridians of the torso. We will discuss their functional and dysfunctional patterns, practice postural assessment, create treatment plans, and choose and apply fascia focused techniques. Build on the foundation of an isolated view of muscle locations and actions, to a more holistic global view of the fascia body. Notice compensation patterns, fascia connections and restrictions that contribute to pain patterns and loss of function.

The hands-on approach of the course is structured like a group mentoring session. Each therapist will participate as both a client and therapist. The first day we will complete individualized assessments, evaluate client patterns, record results on a body map, create a treatment plan, practice and receive techniques, and evaluate postural post treatment results.  

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.

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.

Class is open to all message therapy students and LMTs.

Please Bring:
Writing utensil, paper.
