About 3-4 weeks after Level One Reiki, your mind/body/energy field will have become accustomed to Reiki energy flowing through you, and you are ready for the Level Two attunement. It will allow you to channel four times the amount of Reiki energy you currently have to heal yourself and others. Level Two gives you the tools and techniques for deep healing at subconscious and emotional levels, including depression, addictions, and negative emotional patterns in yourself and others. It greatly enhances intuition and allows you to operate more fully from that level on a day-to-day basis. Level Two is also practitioner-level training, so you can begin charging for treatments. Tuition includes the one-day class and manual. Note: In keeping with Reiki tradition, students are encouraged to remain with the same teacher as they continue their Reiki training at higher and higher levels.

Prerequisite: Level One Reiki. Preparing for the Reiki Attunement: Because we will be working at deep energetic levels, purifying your body as much as possible before class will help you achieve more powerful results, and help your body adjust to the energy shift more easily. Instructions for preparation will be sent to you three days before class. Tuition is non-refundable. If for emergency reasons you are unable to attend the class you signed up for, you are invited to attend the next class that is convenient for you. Classes are held monthly.

Please bring massage linens.

Many therapists who treat low back pain have realized that it is one of the most common issues that their clients/patients deal with and can be quite complex.

The quadratus lumborum although small in size has demonstrated that it can make a big impact on how the low back is able to function. As it tightens, pulling on the ASIS it can cause the gluteal muscles, the 6 lateral rotators, the hamstrings and calf muscles all to “fight” back.

Sciatica refers to pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve, which travels from your lower back through your hips, buttocks and down each leg; back, front and side. Typically, sciatica affects only one side of your body. Sciatica is a set of symptoms that may be caused by numerous issues including general compression and/or irritation of one of the five spinal nerve roots.  

When the psoas and illiacus muscles tighten up due to injuries, poor posture, long term sitting, improper ergonomics or even stress, it can affect the structure and function of the pelvis and lumbar, thoracic, and even cervical vertebrae causing pain and limiting movements.

Since the lumbar muscles, psoas, illiacus and sciatic nerve can be affected merely by the ways we stand, sit, and even walk and ultimately affect our ability to perform normal daily functions it essential that we recognize these muscles and the varied ways we can bring stability and restoration to our clients/patients.

This course encompasses a diversity of soft tissue techniques and self-help care used in treating incapacitating pain of the lower body. These techniques will be demonstrated to assist participants to learn how they can assist their clients/patients.


Learning outcomes
Review the anatomy of the low back and pelvis helping to understand how the lumbar muscles, sciatic nerve and psoas muscles are involved with each other.
Common and uncommon causes of pain associated with back pain.
Discuss different available treatment options

Practice techniques for palpating, stretching, and releasing the quadratus lumborum and low back muscles.
Practice techniques for palpating, stretching, and releasing the gluteal muscles, lateral rotators and hamstrings.

Practice techniques for palpating, stretching, and releasing the psoas and secondary thigh flexors.
Learn and practice self-help exercises to assist and prevent injuries and pain.

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.

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.
