Myofascial Pain Syndromes (MPS) affect muscles, joints and skeletal structures, leading to pain, loss of function and movement.  The myofascial trigger point is the physical entity by which MPS is identified.  

Treatment involves inactivating myofascial trigger points, correcting biomechanical and postural dysfunction and restoring normal movement patterns.  

This two day workshop is presented to teach the techniques of trigger point identification, effective manual techniques of inactivation of trigger points and restoration of function as they relate to the Shoulders & Upper Extremity Regions.  

The workshop consists of an introductory lecture and demonstration, followed by supervised hands-on practice in small groups.  This is a training program with immediate clinical applicability upon completion.  

The therapist will learn to understand the art of a release technique that enables the practitioner to minimize the discomfort associated with Trigger Point Therapy while still providing the most effective client care.  

Thus avoiding over treatment of a given trigger point, causing undue discomfort and sometimes bruising.

Nearly 25 million Americans suffer from asthma (over 8% of adults, over 9% of children), and 60% of asthma cases are “allergic-asthma.” The prevalence of asthma has been increasing since the early 1980s across all age, sex and racial groups.

Asthma is characterized by inflammation of the air passages resulting in the temporary narrowing of the airways that transport air from the nose and mouth to the lungs. Asthma symptoms can be caused by allergens or irritants that are inhaled into the lungs, resulting in inflamed, clogged and constricted airways. Symptoms include difficulty breathing, wheezing, coughing and tightness in the chest. In severe cases, asthma can be deadly.
Although there is no cure for asthma, asthma can be managed with proper prevention and treatment.
Massage Therapy can be a beneficial aid in the care of asthma and other breathing conditions. As the muscles of respiration become fatigued and locked up from constant coughing, wheezing and straining to increase intake volume, in many cases the very same muscles become frozen and restricted, even forming adhesions which will limit the natural movement necessary for normal inhalation and exhalation.
When this occurs the ability to breath is reduced, adding to and increasing the problems that asthma inflicts upon its sufferers.
By relaxing the fatigued muscles, releasing the adhesions and allowing the muscles of respiration to function at their full capacity, a person can breathe with less stress allowing the body to deal with the condition better.
This class helps us to understand what asthma really is, what many of the causes are and some of the medication treatments being used to manage asthma. We’ll also learn what muscles are involved and how we can assist in the release of these muscles through massage, stretches, acupressure points and reflexology points that deal with breathing.
This is a hands on class.

Please bring: Sheet, towel, oil/lotion/crème

Prerequisites: None, this class is open to LMTs, students of massage therapy, and non-massage professionals interested in learning more on the topic.

This 5 1/2-day MLD certification course is based on the techniques developed by Dr. Emil Vodder, Ph.D., MT. When skillfully applied, this therapeutic form of soft-tissue mobilization dramatically enhances lymph formation and promotes drainage within the superficial and deep systems of the lymph vascular network. This helps reduce edema associated with many conditions. MLD also promotes general relaxation and detoxifies the skin and superficial fascia.

During this course, students will be instructed in anatomy and physiology of the lymphatic system. Basic MLD treatment sequences for indications such as post-surgical and post-traumatic edema; fibromyalgia; rheumatoid arthritis; migraine headaches; tinnitus; as well as mild, medically uncomplicated lymphedema will be demonstrated and practiced. Each day will be divided into two sections: theoretical and hands-on application.

Participants will be able to:
• Demonstrate an understanding of the anatomy and the relevant scientific terminology related to the lymphatic system
• Demonstrate an understanding of the differentiation between the normal and diseased states of the lymphatic system (physiology and pathophysiology of the lymphatic system)
• Demonstrate an understanding of the indications and contraindications related to the use of MLD
• Competently perform the techniques of MLD for all body areas
• Develop appropriate treatment strategies for indications such as post-surgical edema, post-traumatic edema, fibromyalgia, general detoxification and other conditions
• Competently perform MLD on clients after breast surgery for cancer (clients at risk to develop lymphedema)
• Competently perform MLD on clients with mild, medically uncomplicated, primary or secondary lymphedema

This course is offered to all: Licensed/Registered Massage Therapists, PT, PTA, OT, COTA, ATC, RN, and MD.
*Massage therapists must show proof of completion of a minimum 500 hours training program or be certified through the NCBTMB.

Because Migraine headaches and their causes are not fully understood this makes the treatment of them even more difficult than other headaches. Therefore it’s important that we examine some of the underlying elements that can be responsible for these dreadful headaches.

The intention of this continuing education program is to:
Reduce the amount of migraine headaches a patient may suffer over a course of time, usually in 1 month increments.
Reduce the severity of the pain and effects that they have come to deal with and accept, which will allow the person to once again be more productive and active.
Reduce the medication that they are presently taking; as these medications become stronger, they also have strong side effects.
Relieve pain and try to stop the migraine in its tracks.
Prevent migraine headaches by removing key elements that can be responsible for their development.
As we learn this information we’ll also take a look at the anatomy in a way that we may never have viewed it before, and using a treatment pattern to care for the muscles that are affected and part of the problem. By helping a patient realize what they can do to help the situation along with Massage Therapy properly applied, Migraine sufferers are able to once again take back control of their lives.

This is a lecture and hands-on class that will help participants assist patients in reducing migraine headache intensity, frequency, and reduce the need and use of pain medication through massage and life style changes that can be the cumulative cause of the migraines.

Participants will learn to assess the patients’ needs, provide a treatment plan, and understand the anatomy of a migraine and traditional methods of treating them.

Those attending will see that massage therapists can influence positive results for their patients, helping them to return to regular routines and reclaim their lives.

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.

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.
