LIVE STUDY/ WORK WITH HANDS ON THE BODY

COURSE OUTLINE:
The INTRODUCTION TO AROMATHERAPY class is based on the ancient and modern
science of exploring ESSENTIAL OILS for therapeutic and health promoting benefits,
as well as an alternative to synthetic perfumes.
DURING THE THEORY/ POWERPOINT SECTION of this class the students will learn
the history of aromatherapy, the methods of sourcing and applying essential oils, the
most popular plants and their healing qualities, including the anatomy of the limbic
system, the 5 energy bodies, 7 major Chakras, including glands and organs.
DURING THE PRACTICE SESSION of this class, the students will learn how to safely
blend and dilute essential oils, create the client consultation and choose the appropriate
oils for adding to treatments like massage, reflexology, skin care & balancing the
chakras. We will also learn how to create a blended Essential Oil perfume.
The students will practice on each other, experiencing both giving and receiving various
mini treatments.
LEARNING OUTCOMES & BENEFITS:
One of the main benefits of Aromatherapy for Massage Practitioners is the
instantaneous balancing action of calming or stimulating signals to the limbic system, as
well as relieving muscle tension.
Essential Oils can be administered topically or through inhalation via steam or diffuser :
• Promoting general well being and stress relief, resulting in a stronger immune system
and deeper sleep
• Helping to relieve chronic pain and to recover from injuries or medical treatments
• Healing emotional traumas
• Helping to regulate blood pressure, soothe tight muscles, relieve allergies and balance
hormones
These benefits have been recognized and aromatherapy is now widely offered
in spas and wellness centers.
A continued practice of Aromatherapy may awaken a deep interest for advanced
professional training in other energy healing modalities.

WHAT MAKES ONE MASSAGE ABSOLUTELY AMAZING FOR BODY, MIND & SPIRIT, while another massage is just mediocre?

WHAT ALLOWS SOME MASSAGE THERAPISTS TO THRIVE IN OUR WORK AND IN OUR LIVES, while other massage therapists get hurt and/or burnt out?

WHAT MAKES AWARENESS MASSAGE LOMILOMI WORKSHOPS POWERFUL, INSPIRING, AND GREAT FUN?

About Lomilomi with Awareness Massage
The lomi lomi workshops I teach are designed to inspire both beginning and experienced massage therapists to develop awareness and presence within our own bodies, minds & spirits.

I am passionate about helping my students develop sensitive palpation skills as well as ways to most effectively use body weight to deliver deep yet gentle massage. I am also passionate about helping my students cultivate self-awareness and self-love. These practices contribute to our ability to give transformative and highly effective massage to our clients.

Lomilomi with Awareness Massage is done with DEEP yet GENTLE, LOVING touch. It is clinically focused, structure specific, problem solving massage, which pays special attention to BONES for healing at all levels, if so desired. This work is grounded in healing practices from the Big Island (Hawaii) via the lineage of Aunty Margaret Machado and Dr. Maka'ala Yates, D.C.

Lomilomi with Awareness Massage can help relieve pain and encourage ease of movement. Done skillfully this is highly effective treatment massage that also feels wonderful to receive, making it equally valuable in treatment and wellness focused settings.

Awareness Massage Lomilomi can be used to effectively relieve and/or resolve problems related to joint & muscular pain and movement restriction, joint replacement, surgery preparation & recovery, sciatica, injuries from falls and/or repetitive use, arthritis, lupus, fibromyalgia, headaches, asthma and other breathing problems, depression, emotional pain related to loss, high stress lifestyle, cancer, Parkinson's disease, problematic posture, pregnancy, and more.

I am committed to helping massage therapists adopt ways of working which are good for both ourselves and our clients so that we can minimize burnout and injury and can to continue to practice massage well into our elder years if we so desire.

ABOUT THE 27 CE HOT STONES WORKSHOP
This workshop teaches a full body protocol using hot stones.  The protocol used mirrors the one taught in the Lomilomi Fundamentals class, integrating the hot stones.  

Lomi lomi using round, flat stones in motion are used to treat the many levels of healing necessary to help restore balance in the mind-body-soul. Stones are used as an extension of the hands to help better access hard to reach physical restrictions.  The combination of the penetrating heat from the stones with the aligned use of body weight and specific presence and intention is powerful.  It is different than the way hot stones are taught in other hot stones classes that I'm aware of.

Each student will learn how to collect stones using proper Hawaiian protocols, how to heat the stones and control the temperature, and how to clean the stones.

Much attention is given to "transitions" to create consistency through the session. This training is more than just laying of stones onto the patient; it is specific to the individual’s needs as it focuses on problem solving! The more palpatory skill you develop, the more useful stones become.  

This lomi lomi hot stones class may be taken either before or after the Awareness Massage Lomilomi Fundamentals class.  Because they build on each other, taking either one will help you pick up the information in the other more quickly.

Please bring one bottom sheet & one top sheet (100% cotton preferred), face cradle cover or pillow case, 2 thick, cotton hand towels. Optional: pillow and/or blanket.  
Strongly encouraged but not required: healthy contribution for potluck lunch.  Buddha Blends Massage Cream will be used in class and will be provided.  Wear comfortable clothing.

Many activities and occupations cause people to have problems with their shoulder, arm, elbow, wrist, or hand. We see athletes with shoulder pain, musicians with hand pain, massage therapists with forearm or thumb pain, construction workers with chronic elbow soreness, office workers with wrist issues, and much more.

These clients usually do not have the luxury to just stop the activities and jobs that produce their repetitive movement patterns. With DIT, you can relieve their discomfort and pain and help them find ways to continue the work and activities they love.

You will learn Direct and Indirect Techniques for the rotator cuff muscles (infraspinatus, supraspinatus, teres minor, and subscapularis), deltoids and upper arm muscles (biceps, brachialis, coracobrachialis, and triceps), forearm muscles (brachioradialis, supinator, pronators, flexors, and extensors), and muscles of the hand.

You will use a specific combination of both deep and gentle myofascial, neuromuscular, and cranial-sacral techniques that effectively relieve tight shoulder, arm and hand muscles and fascia. You will also practice DITechniques to address brachial plexus difficulties resulting in shooting pain, numbness, or tingling down the arm and/or into the wrist and hand.

We will explore the muscle and fascial anatomy of the shoulder, arm and hand, as well as common compensation patterns and trigger point referral patterns, and demonstrate how these can be relieved using these techniques. In this class, you'll learn real tools for the shoulder, arm and hand that you can use right away in your practice, maximizing the effectiveness of your work while minimizing stress on your body.

The DIT for Shoulder class combines well with the DIT for Neck and DIT for TMJ classes.

Millions of people carry tremendous tension in their neck - including a lot of massage therapists! With DIT, therapists have the tools they need to work effectively on a variety of neck conditions. For many of our students, this comment from satisfied clients is common: 'No one has ever worked on my neck like that before.'

This class will give you the tools you need to help your clients feel as if their neck is brand new. You will learn real tools that you can use right away in your practice, maximizing the effectiveness of your massage technique while minimizing stress on your body.

The areas of focus include the major anterior neck muscles (SCM, scalenes, hyoids, etc.) and posterior neck muscles (levator scapula, upper trapezius, suboccipitals, splenius, superior erector spinae and transversopinalis group), as well as other supporting muscles and structures.

You will practice a specific combination of myo-fascial, neuro-muscular, and cranial-sacral techniques for relieving tight neck muscles and fascia - a blend of deep and gentle techniques that are very effective when used together.

We will explore the muscle and fascial anatomy of the neck, as well as common compensation patterns and trigger point referral patterns, and demonstrate how these can be relieved using the DIT techniques.

This DIT for the Neck class combines well with the DIT for the Shoulder and Arm and DIT for TMJ classes.

TMJ Dysfunction affects more people than most therapists would expect. The jaw clenchers and teeth-grinders of the world are numerous, and you may even be one of them! TMJD is often involved with Neck pain, and it can also be a major factor with headaches, including migraines!

Many people with TMJD do not realize that their jaw muscles are a source of their symptoms. And if they do, they do not know that their symptoms can often be treated successfully with specific massage techniques! In this class, you will learn real tools for the TMJ that you can use right away in your practice to give your clients relief.

The primary learning objectives of this course are to help massage therapists recognize the different causes of TMJD and Jaw pain, what symptoms indicate possible TMJD, and how to use Direct-Indirect Technique™ to treat TMJD, Jaw pain, and related conditions.

You will practice a specific combination of myofascial, neuromuscular, deep tissue, and cranial-sacral techniques for relieving tight TMJ muscles and fascia - a blend of deep and gentle techniques that are very effective when used together.

We will explore the muscle and fascial anatomy of the TMJ, as well as common compensation patterns and trigger point referral patterns, and demonstrate how these can be relieved using these techniques.

The DIT for TMJ class combines well with the DIT for Neck and DIT for Shoulder classes.

Please bring massage linens.

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.

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.
