This two-day class blends lecture, discussion and plenty of hands-on practice to develop and refine palpation skills. On the first day, working with inanimate objects, living tissues and subtle pulses, we will use exercises and techniques from world-renowned doctors and educators to enhance our awareness. Then, we will use our new skills to evaluate the cardiac pulse and respiratory movements for signs of dysfunction or pathology. On the second day, our examination of skin, fascia and muscles will flow seamlessly into treatment with results that will boost your confidence as a therapist. If you expect palpation to be boring, I think you will be surprised.

Please bring massage linens.

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.

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.

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.

Please bring massage linens (including pillowcases for breast draping), blankets and a clip board.

The travel industry is a power house of the US economy. Direct spending by travelers in the U.S. averaged $2.7 billion per day in 2016. (U.S. residents logged 1.7 billion trips for leisure purposes and 457 million trips for business purposes in 2016).

The travel industry is a profitable and competitive market for licensed massage therapists,
because every traveler more or less suffers from travel-related issues and looks for
quick remedies.

As licensed massage therapists, you can take the initiative to better understand travel related health issues and to help your clients travel well and live well. Therapists with a clear understanding of travel-related massage will be highly desirable at service oriented establishments, such as luxury hotel spas, where therapists are required to foresee and satisfy the demanding needs of frequent world travelers.

Traveling is human nature, and the current population in the United States alone totals
about 323.1 million people. We can logically deduce that travel-related issues belong to
every one of us in the U.S., and therefore travel massage specialists are in demand in
every corner of our society. This program is the fruit of Snow Shimazu’s life journey and the crystallization of who she is, and she looks forward to sharing this training to
help others like you become a travel massage specialist and capitalize on this profitable market.

Snow Shimazu (MA, LMT, CLT, ARCB, RYT) crafted an innovative travel massage program that was born naturally out of her own need to prevent and recover from the damage caused by her frequent traveling. When she realized that the majority of her clients suffered from the same agonies brought on by frequent travel, she formulated a specialized program that combines her years of diverse and multi-disciplinary experiences and training in massage, manual therapy, yoga, meditation, traveling and luxury service to help people prevent and recover from the damage caused by traveling.


Snow has experienced luxurious hospitality as a guest, a therapist, and a consultant, and she now brings this innovative travel massage program to Cortiva Massage School to educate and train her fellow LMTs and health and wellness professionals.

Full Certification as an Air Beautiful Travel Massage Specialist requires completion of two certified classes:

Part I- Travel Prep and Recovery Massage
Part II- Jet Lag Adjuster Massages and Beyond

In the Part 1, the training will allow the participants:
• To understand the physiology of traveling, especially what happens to our bodies in the air cabin, and during other types of traveling.

• To analyze the imbalances that travel may cause from a variety of Western and Eastern perspectives, and to generate reasonable and effective treatment plans.

• To learn two types of Travel Recovery Massage protocols and one type of Travel Prep Massage protocol with utilizing the ideas and techniques of Swedish Massage, Shiatsu, Ayurveda, Aromatherapy, and more.

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.
