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.

Traditional Thai massage is an ancient healing system that combines broad and targeted acupressure, stimulation and manipulation of energy lines called Sen., and assisted yoga postures. Treatment effects are enhanced when the recipient is fully relaxed and breathing deeply. This traditional healing practice, called nuad or nuad boran in the Thai language, stands in sharp contrast to western massage therapy.

The recipient remains clothed during a treatment. There is constant body contact between the practitioner and client, but rather than rubbing on muscles, the body is compressed, pulled, stretched and rocked in order to clear energy blockages and relieve tension.

The practitioner uses thumbs, palms, forearms, and feet to create a dance of movement on the body of the recipient. In this process, joints are opened, muscles and tendons are stretched, internal organs are toned, and energy is balanced.

The overall effect is one of deep relaxation, rejuvenation, and physical and mental wellbeing. Based on healing principles similar to those of other Eastern healing arts, the Thai system focuses on circulation of vital energy in major pathways called Sen. Energy lines are manipulated, and important pressure points along these pathways are stimulated to help break down blockages, stimulate energy flow and restore balance and harmony.

This series of five one day introductory level classes specialize in understanding the cause of pain and
dysfunction common to each area of the body. Take home "eye training" to help you see fascial
dysfunction. Test to determine the cause of dysfunction and treat quickly, easily and painlessly with
ligament stimulation. Learn why just "releasing" the fascia and muscles is never enough. These classes may be taken individually or as a series. Each class is 8 NCBTMB CE hours and includes assessment through myofascial and neuromuscular function testing and gentle ligament stimulation treatment protocols. Each class builds upon information taught in previous classes and is only taught as a series.

$550 for entire series
40 CE hours for entire series

Saturday, September 8, 2018, 9am to 6pm
Understanding and Correcting Pelvis / Low Back Pathologies:
Discover how fascial imbalances contribute to low back and pelvic pain. Practitioners learn about
common causes of low back pain, how to test to learn where the cause of the problem is and treat the root of the problem. LIFT takes the guesswork out of your treatments. Restore fascial and muscular balance in the pelvis and goodbye back pain!

Saturday, September 29, 2018, 9am to 6pm
Spinal and Core Pathologies:
The spine is the core of our bodies. A healthy spine that moves easily is the culmination of all of the
fascial lines functioning well. Learn about pathologies specific to the spine and how to approach them
with LIFT.

Saturday, October 6, 2018, 9am to 6pm
Leg & Foot Pathologies:
Learn how the feet are truly the gateway to many of the fascial lines. Learn to assess and test the feet and legs. Watch the fascia unwind through the entire body. By having the ability to easily retest, the
practitioner can problem solve and treat quickly.

Saturday, October 27, 2018, 9am to 6pm
Understanding Shoulder Biomechanics and Correcting Shoulder Dysfunction:
The shoulder and neck muscles and fascia truly reflect how we are. Practitioners will learn arm line
testing that will unravel where the problem lies within the upper body. Is the problem felt in the neck
from the neck or is it from the shoulders or forearms? Is the pain felt in the forearms from the neck or
shoulder? You get the idea! We take the guesswork out of your treatment strategy by pinpointing where the problem is through comprehensive myofascial testing. Treat easily, effectively and gently.

Saturday, November 10, 2018, 9am to 6pm
Pathologies of the Arms & Hands:
Like the feet are the gateway to the axial fascial system, the hands are the gateway to the arm lines.
Assess, test and treat simply, quickly and painlessly. Treat the hands and watch the arm lines open up.

Please bring massage linens and wear clothes easy to move in (jeans are not a good idea).  A course manual will be provided.

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.
