Cupping is a technique traditionally used in Eastern modalities (like acupuncture) 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.

With new technology we as massage therapists have adapted this technique by using silicone cups and combining the suction with massage strokes. The end result is increased circulation, increased ROM and less pain. In short, an extra tool for the therapist, and relief for our clients.

In this 2 day course we will learn how to use the cups in general, focus on some injuries, and do a facial cupping massage.

Each participant will learn:
•  Indications and contra-indications
•  How to use and clean the cups
•  Flash cupping, Moving cupping, and Stationary Cupping techniques
•  How to work on chronic pain and injuries
•  Facial Cupping

Please bring massage linens, massage oil, natural lotion or oil for the face.

Also, 2 sets of silicone cups, (similar to these: http://www.amazon.com/Premium-Transparent-Silicone-Cupping-Chinese/dp/B00CB8S5W4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1436818960&sr=8-1&keywords=massage+cups&pebp=1436818980994&perid=05ZGJPNW443WCXY70JT9) AND 1 set of glass facial massage cups (similar to these: http://www.amazon.com/Face-Glass-Vacuum-Cupping-Therapy/dp/B0109M5O2M/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1449247247&sr=8-1&keywords=facial+massage+cups+glass).

WHAT MAKES ONE MASSAGE ABSOLUTELY AMAZING FOR BODY, MIND & SPIRIT, while another massage is just mediocre?

WHAT ALLOWS SOME MASSAGE THERAPISTS TO THRIVE IN OUR WORK AND IN OUR LIVES, while other massage therapists get hurt and/or burnt out?

WHAT MAKES AWARENESS MASSAGE LOMILOMI WORKSHOPS POWERFUL, INSPIRING, AND GREAT FUN?

About Lomilomi with Awareness Massage
The lomi lomi workshops I teach are designed to inspire both beginning and experienced massage therapists to develop awareness and presence within our own bodies, minds & spirits.

I am passionate about helping my students develop sensitive palpation skills as well as ways to most effectively use body weight to deliver deep yet gentle massage. I am also passionate about helping my students cultivate self-awareness and self-love. These practices contribute to our ability to give transformative and highly effective massage to our clients.

Lomilomi with Awareness Massage is done with DEEP yet GENTLE, LOVING touch. It is clinically focused, structure specific, problem solving massage, which pays special attention to BONES for healing at all levels, if so desired. This work is grounded in healing practices from the Big Island (Hawaii) via the lineage of Aunty Margaret Machado and Dr. Maka'ala Yates, D.C.

Lomilomi with Awareness Massage can help relieve pain and encourage ease of movement. Done skillfully this is highly effective treatment massage that also feels wonderful to receive, making it equally valuable in treatment and wellness focused settings.

Awareness Massage Lomilomi can be used to effectively relieve and/or resolve problems related to joint & muscular pain and movement restriction, joint replacement, surgery preparation & recovery, sciatica, injuries from falls and/or repetitive use, arthritis, lupus, fibromyalgia, headaches, asthma and other breathing problems, depression, emotional pain related to loss, high stress lifestyle, cancer, Parkinson's disease, problematic posture, pregnancy, and more.
I am committed to helping massage therapists adopt ways of working which are good for both ourselves and our clients so that we can minimize burnout and injury and can to continue to practice massage well into our elder years if we so desire.

Barbara Helynn Heard
I have practiced lomilomi since 1996 and have taught lomilomi to others since 2005. I practice and teach clinically focused, spiritually grounded lomilomi from the Big Island which I learned from my mentor of 13 years, Hawaiian healer and Mana Lomi founder Maka'ala Yates D.C.. I have enhanced the skills I've gleaned via my studies with Maka'ala with my own practice, as well as with my studies with other teachers.

My intent as a teacher is to see the Light in each person and to help each student to be and to do their very best.

I began doing massage as a teen-ager in the 1970’s. I graduated from Brian Utting School of Massage in Seattle, WA in 1996 and since then have maintained an active private practice in Seattle called Awareness Massage.

Reiki has made such a huge impact on my life, that I felt compelled to share this wonderful energy with others.  I was blessed to receive my first attunement in early 2009 and then took the fast track to Master Teacher, so that I could share this beautiful energy with as many as possible. I am committed to helping clients achieve new levels of healing and personal growth. In my practice, I have witnessed over and over again the powerful ways that Reiki can touch people’s lives and the profound healing that is possible with it.  I have been teaching Reiki since 2009 and am happy that we can bring it to the Cortiva Institute – PA, where I am also a Massage Therapy Instructor. I also currently maintain my own Massage Therapy and Reiki Healing practice in home.

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.
