Instructor: Rachel Beider

According to the Small Business Administration, 90% of service businesses will fail within the first 5 years. These statistics are even higher for Massage Therapy as a profession. They fail not because they don't offer great services, but because massage therapists can be extremely uncomfortable with traditional marketing, resulting in feeling overwhelmed, isolated, and frustrated. Wellness practitioners tend to be highly nurturing. We nurture our clients, our peers, our loved ones, its what we do. This course will teach you to nurture your business.

When Rachel Beider started her practice at 24, 6 months after graduating from massage school, she was able to effectively and immediately grow her private practice from 10 clients, to 110 new clients within one summer. She did this with limited resources and very little funds, which required creative solutions.

This course is Rachel's proven system for getting more clients, all while on a budget. And it works. She will lay out an easy-to-follow road map for starting and growing your massage practice based on 7 core self-promotion strategies. Through verbal and written exercises, you'll not only learn how to develop a strong marketing plan and brand identity, but you'll also learn why self-promotion is absolutely critical to your success -— and how to do it with passion and purpose.

Even if you hate the idea of marketing and selling yourself, this practical, inspirational course will lift you up and give you the confidence you need to comfortably and authentically market yourself and your services, tap into an endless supply of quality referrals, and watch your business grow.

Required Materials:
Pen and paper or other note-taking supplies.

What is PNF Stretching? Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) is an advanced form of flexibility training that involves both the stretching and contraction of part of the muscle, the whole muscle, or even a muscle group that is being targeted.

PNF stretching was originally developed as a form of rehabilitation for stroke patients, and to that effect it is very effective.
It is also excellent for targeting specific muscle groups, increasing flexibility and range of motion as it also improves muscular strength.

PNF stretches takes advantage of the sudden vulnerability of the muscle and its increased range of motion by using the moments immediately following the isometric contraction to train the stretch receptors to get used to this new, increased, muscle length. This is accomplished by the final passive stretch.

PNF stretching is one of the most effective forms of flexibility training for increasing range of motion.
While there are several variations of PNF stretching, they all have one thing in common - they facilitate muscular inhibition. It is believed that this is why PNF is superior to other forms of flexibility training.

By using this method, therapists not only gain tremendous improvement in their patient/client, but at the same time they can reduce the strains on their own body helping to preserve their hands and extend their career.

This is a hands on Class.

Class needs: loose fitting clothing, no jeans.

$175; $300 for Saturday & Sunday workshops

NeuroMuscular Connections CE classes are based on the teachings in the Feldenkrais Method®.
Mobilization of the skeleton, working across and through the joints, instead of on or along the musculature reduces the strain and tension throughout the whole dynamic system. Develop skills to support the client body weight and allow the related musculature to reduce strain and enhance flexibility. Practitioners apply directed force with light resistance which assists in the clarification of client postural support.

This approach works well with clients in special populations including; rehabilitation, low pain tolerance, auto-immune issues, chronic pain and muscle restrictions. People who experience brain issues, aging, hospice care or PTSD respond well to this method. Clients in athletic training and experiencing work environment ergonomic difficulties benefit greatly from this particular focus on posture, balance and movement improvement.
About the lumbar class: Five vertebrae create the greatest number of complaints by clients.  Major and minor muscles build the tensegrity of the area and balance of the lower spine to allow standing, walking and sitting with ease.  Build a repertoire of treatment protocols to enhance the delicate movements necessary to balance the weight of the torso, cervical region and the head during activities of daily living.
• Evaluate the how the asymmetry of the body affects the Lumbar Region determining how these asymmetries create and increase restrictions in rotation, flexion and extension of the lumbar resulting in pain from injuries and chronic use issues.
• Use hands-on technique to balance and release the structures of the Lumbar Region to decrease stress and strain and balance the weight distribution of the upper body in sitting, standing and walking.
• Learn to integrate the movements of the lower extremities in differentiating and synchronizing patterns for functional ease in the skeletal, musculature and fascia restrictions of the lumbar region.

Please bring massage linens and a bolster.  Wear comfortable clothing.

About the thoracic class:  Explore working with all 3 dimensions in the Thoracic Region to increase balance, breath and reduce pain in the other regions. Work with the fascia inside of the thoracic region as well as the related muscles bringing movement to the whole ribcage to bring more ease to standing, sitting and walking. Client complaints of pain may have direct connection to the restrictions in the thoracic region. Learn to:
• Evaluate the asymmetry of the thoracic region in relationship within itself and to the rest of the body to determine how these asymmetries create and increase restrictions, pain from injuries and chronic use issues.
• Use hands-on technique to balance and release the structures of the Thoracic Region to decrease stress and strain in the connections of the Upper Extremities, Cervical, Lumbar Regions and the effects on the rest of the body.
• Work with respiration as an additional tool for release of muscle, fascia and skeletal restrictions.

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.

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.
