REGISTRATION DEADLINE:  Thurs., 4/24/14  at 11pm

This course is designed to focus on a common hip and knee disorder associated with athletics called Iliotibial Band Syndrome. Integrating the appropriate soft tissue techniques can dramatically reduce the severity of symptoms and impact that this condition can have on training, participation, and athletic performance. The therapist will learn basic orthopedic assessments that will help isolate and determine the dysfunction's location. Postural assessments will be used to identify possible contributing factors from structural misalignment and trigger point activity. The findings from these assessments will help the therapist select the best treatment techniques to reduce painful symptoms and return the athlete to optimal function.

Prerequisites: current senior student in a massage therapy program, graduate of a massage therapy program, LMTs and other healthcare providers interested in learning more about this topic.

Bring: set of sheets, unscented oil/cream, note-taking supplies and wear comfortable clothing and supportive footwear.

CranioSacral Therapy is a whole body hands on application of gentle palpation, traction, compression, and rocking.  The approach with the techniques is to relieve or “release” restrictions, which impair nervous system functioning.  Rooted in Cranial Osteopathic technique, CranioSacral Therapy is now utilized by many healthcare providers, integrating these techniques to their approach to patient wellness.  The body of work presented to you in this class will credit the Upledger model of protocol as well as explore work described in Hugh Milnes ”Heart of Listening”.  CranioSacral work is not a diagnosis or a treatment plan designed by therapists.  It is a way of listening to the patient body; working with the most functional movement and allowing the body to move into new space, range of motion, sensation often experiencing freedom from pain.  The gentle palpations and delicate movements utilized allow the patient body to relax and self correct.

At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:
• Describe the anatomy and physiology of the CranioSacral system
• Understand the biomechanics (physics) of CranioSacral techniques
• Identify and practice palpation of the cranial motion/dynamic
• Evaluate CranioSacral motion at multiple sites in the body
• Acknowledge indications, precautions and contraindications for CranioSacral Therapy                  
• Create a proficient protocol for treatment
• Integrate the CS techniques demonstrated in this workshop in a therapeutic treatment

Please bring: A set of sheets and note taking supplies.

2. Discussion about massage-related physical challenges;
3. Observation and written assessment of each participant’s body mechanics, movement and technique;
4. Hands-on demonstration of suggested modifications for each participant’s individual challenges; and
5. Plenty of hands-on practice time to integrate recommended changes.

Look forward to a day of efficient and fluid movement!

Wear comfortable clothing and supportive footwear.  Please note:  Sandals, flip-flops, clogs, slippers, high heels, and backless shoes are not appropriate for this class, nor will participants be able to work in their bare feet.

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.

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.
