Course Description

Title: Therapeutic Taping for Massage Therapists
All classes are approved for continuing education credits from the NCBTMB and the State of Arizona Massage Board.
Overview Course description:
Therapeutic taping has become a staple in the world of rehabilitation and sports medicine and is rapidly gaining popularity in more general bodywork applications.  By preventing overuse/overcontraction of stiff muscles, activating weak muscles, assisting in lymph flow, and reducing pain and swelling in irritated or inflamed tissues it can help prolong the effects of your massage treatments for a period of several days.  Therapeutic taping can be used to facilitate posture and alignment corrections, and gently re-educate the neuromuscular reflexes into more functional patterns.  All classes will cover the unique properties of Kinesio®Tex tape and concepts of application.  Each module will cover different tissues and/or goals of treatment and different types of tape cuts to achieve the goal.  This functional approach allows the practitioner the opportunity to design a course of treatment for each client based upon the client’s needs and not a predetermined formula.
Basic Therapeutic Taping 1: Principles of Kinesio-Tex tape, general muscle applications____
Date/Time September 3, 2016 9am-4pm
Cost/ Credit: 6 CE
Students will learn to apply Kinesio®Tex tape to inhibit overactive muscles, activate weak or poorly firing muscles, reposition fascia, and facilitate postural alignment.  We will discuss the stages of rehabilitation of an injury and how to change the tape applications as healing progresses.  Tape cuts will include “I”, “Y”, and “X”.  Tape applications will include: deltoid, rhomboids, erector spinae, hamstrings, knee, neck strain (whiplash), TMJD, and gastrocnemius/Achilles tendon strain.  
Prerequisites: none; tape will be provided.
Preparation:
• Please bring a pair of sharp scissors with 4-6” blades. (Scissors must be able to cut cloth – your kid’s paper scissors from school won’t work.)
• There will be a one-hour meal break, bring additional snack/beverage if you wish.  There are many restaurants near the facility.   There is also a refrigerator, microwave oven and toaster oven available if you want to bring your own food.
• Women should bring or wear a camisole or tank top to allow access to neck and shoulders.  
• Clinical Therapeutic Applications of the Kinesio Taping Method, 3rd  Edition, by Kenzo Kase is recommended but NOT required.

Therapeutic Taping  2: Advanced Techniques for fascia release, circulatory (lymphatic) flow, treating scars and bruises.
Date/Time: September 24, 2016 9am-1pm
Cost/Credit: 4 CE
Students will learn taping techniques to reposition and/or align fascia, remodel scars, “space corrections” and “lymphatic channeling” to reduce pain and edema of acute injury or inflammation, functional or “spring” corrections to facilitate correct joint movement and minimize dysfunctional movement during the healing process.  Tape cuts will include “fan”, “web” or “lantern”, and “donut”.  Students will practice taping for fractures, sprain/strain,  frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis),  sciatica, plantar fasciitis.
Prerequisite: Therapeutic Taping I: Intro and Basic Techniques
Preparation:
• Clinical Therapeutic Applications of the Kinesio Taping Method, 3rd Edition, by Kenzo Kase is required.
• Please bring a pair of sharp scissors with 4-6” blades.  
• Women should bring or wear a camisole or tank top to allow access to neck and shoulders.
• Tape will be provided.

Therapeutic Taping  3:  Advanced Techniques for joint stabilization, tendon and ligament strains
Date/Time: September 25, 2016 9am-1pm
Cost/Credit:  4 CE
This class will focus on taping techniques that support joint, tendon, and ligament injuries from the acute phase through the rehab phases of treatment.  These techniques, called “mechanical corrections”, can also be used to support a chronically injured joint/ligament when the body part will be stressed.  Students will practice selecting and combining taping techniques for a variety of joint dysfunctions including TMJD, shoulder dysfunctions (instability, postural distortion), herniated discs, patellar tracking syndromes, shin splints, ACL stabilization, metatarsal arch support.
Prerequisite: Therapeutic Taping I: Intro and Basic Techniques
Preparation:
• Clinical Therapeutic Applications of the Kinesio Taping Method, 3rd  Edition, by Kenzo Kase is required.

One of three entry points into the Foundations in Myofascial Release Seminars: The Upper Body begins at the core, teaching you a simple but very effective means of connecting your findings with your client’s pain or dysfunction. Using a well-defined Feedback Loop, the Foundations Approach makes treatment quite simple. Therapists who have taken seminars through the Foundations Seminars Approach have reported that they learned effective interventions quickly and easily and are able to integrate the newly learned concepts immediately. Even those therapists with previous experience in myofascial release (MFR) trainings find value in the Foundations Approach, not only to learn different approaches/techniques, but through learning ways to use this effective modality. After learning a core understanding of nervous system and soft tissue change, the application of treatment flows smoothly. Autonomic nervous system engagement, cutaneous nerve/skin-based approaches, as well as the more traditional “fascial approaches” to pain relief will all be addressed in an easy to understand fashion. Having a deeper model of understanding of the explanations behind this work makes for a much more effective therapist.
The Upper Body Seminar includes valuable evaluative and treatment perspectives on the arms, shoulders, thorax, neck, and head regions. But more than just a collection of techniques, you will learn how to apply these concepts anywhere in the body, with nuanced variations in stretch direction and style that allows you to further engage your patient in the process and alleviate their pain or symptoms.
Foundations in Myofascial Release Seminars are designed for both beginner and experienced therapists. Massage therapists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, and speech language pathologists will all find value in these fast paced and enjoyable hands-on classes. Using an easy to follow approach, Foundations Seminars will build the confidence of a beginner to start using this valuable modality from the first day. Those who have taken other myofascial release seminars will find fresh a fresh approach to evaluation and treatment. Integrating a nervous system based approach creates entirely new openings for the therapist to follow. Pain which was previously explained in a nebulous manner, taking into account the supposed far-reaching effects of the fascial system can now be explained in a plausible fashion using simple neuroanatomy and neuroscience. While many therapists may prefer to continue on the fringe of acceptance, many more are reaching for credibility. Foundations Seminars supports you!
The Upper Body Seminar is 20 hours/2.5-days and require no prerequisites. All are approved by NCBTMB for 20 CE Hours. Approval for SLP’s, PT’s, PTA’s, OTR’s, and COTA’s varies on a state-by-state basis. Please inquire for specific approval for these and other professions, as many will have been previously approved.
You may have noticed the small number of seminar choices within the Foundations lineup. We are all trained therapists, with a license to touch and experience in anatomy, physiology, and clinical reasoning. Any manual therapy modality need not be time-consuming and expensive to master, though many schools lead you to believe otherwise. The Foundations Approach is a simple one; connect with your patient’s pain and create change. This need not be made more difficult that it is. The principles you will learn in the Foundations Approach Seminars are easily applicable to most of your existing training as well. After over two and a half decades in this field, Walt Fritz has created a very simple approach to dealing with pain. Please consider joining him for this Upper Body Seminar.

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.

Class is open to all message therapy students and LMTs.
