This hands-on course focuses on learning an advanced cross fiber stroke with an emphasis on attaining depth not increasing pressure. Unlike long flowing strokes, which direct blood for the purpose of relaxation, cross friction techniques encourage site-specific blood flow for the purpose of preparing the tissues for corrective therapy. Friction strokes applied for a sufficient amount of time produce the heat needed to modify the consistency of the ground substance and initiate a therapeutic inflammatory process.
If you are struggling with deep tissue massage and clients looking for more pressure, this is the class for you. Cross fiber techniques address adherent and densified areas enhancing blood flow which aids in rehydration and healing process.
Please bring: sheets, a large bath towel, a blanket, unscented massage cream (no oils or gels) note taking supplies

The origin of Reflexology is very ancient and it has been used for centuries as an adjuvant therapy. Based on the premises that there are points in the feet and in the hands corresponding to parts, organs and systems of the body, reflexology applies specific manual techniques on these reflex points/areas to promote homeostasis.  It is very popular and is used in Integrative Therapy Clinics of major hospitals.

This two day introductory reflexology class will cover the history, definition, benefits of reflexology such as stress reduction, as well as perform hands on solutions to help restore homeostasis. We will also discuss:
- Location of reflex points on the feet
- Techniques used to stimulate the reflex points
- Cautions and contraindications

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.
