Become confident in your assessment and clinical skills. Learn how to understand and resolve clients’ problems much more effectively – whether the causes derive from stress, energetic or structural imbalance, chronic tension or injury.

Zero Balancing I (25 hours)  2/19/2015 – 2/22/2015
Thurs. 6:30-10pm, Fri and Sat. 9-5:30, Sun. 9-4:30

Zero Balancing is the art and applied science of working with the energy and structure of the skeletal system which often underlies clients’ muscular and fascial issues.  Problems that resist myofascial solutions will often yield when you add a skeletal focus.  Zero Balancing improves both energy flow and structural integrity through the deepest layer of our anatomy.  Adding Zero Balancing to your therapy completes your ability to address every major layer of the body.

Orthopedic Massage Certification (96 hours)  4/20/2015 -8/10/2015

Certification in Orthopedic massage – designed by our faculty and inspired by the work of Whitney Lowe – will give you the skills to resolve 50 different conditions.  Improve your understanding and competence in treating musculoskeletal problems. Assessment and evaluation are considered to be  critical tools in understanding a client’s problem, as well as finding the most effective treatment for that condition.

Learn how soft-tissues function in health and injury, what roles fascia plays in the body, and the primary ways in which soft-tissues are damaged. Techniques include range-of-motion, manual resistive, and special testing, as well as how to utilize problem-solving with deep massage, myofascial release, trigger points, deep tissue work and active release techniques. (TBA – Take as a Workshop – CLICK HERE)

Shiatsu  (36 hours) 3/1/2015 – 4/13/2015

Shiatsu in Japanese means “finger pressure”; it is a type of bodywork consisting of finger and palm pressure and stretches.   Learn the brilliant model of the five elements, meridians, chi, yin-yang, key points for relief of excesses and deficiencies which affect structure and energy.  You will learn techniques for working on the back of the body.  Emphasis on the hara (centering), superlative body mechanics, and the focus on mindfulness will add to all your other forms of bodywork.

Psychology of Bodywork (36 hours) 8/17/2015 – 9/14/2015

Learn to design client sessions specific to the psyche as well as the body.   Become familiar with “character structure” and the foundational role of the earliest years of life in creating body structure and psychological strengths and challenges.  This segment draws from the Hakomi Method and utilizes Ron Kurtz’ book, Body-Centered Psychotherapy, as our text.

This level of understanding will help you personally as well as professionally in your practice. In Psychology of Bodywork you will learn to apply heightened touch and communication skills to help clients more easily release of long-held physical tension patterns that may be caused as much by states of mind and emotions as by the body.

Cranio-Sacral work (25 hours) 9/17/2015 – 9/20/2015

Cranio-Sacral work gives you the ability to address the function of the cranio-sacral system comprising the cranial fasciae and cerebrospinal system.   Learn to address issues such as TMJ dysfunction, headaches, neck pain, residual tension from dental work, and to facilitate the benefits of deep relaxation.

Deep Massage Certification  (44 hours) 9/28/2015 – 11/9/2015

Deep Massage is a unique soft tissue therapy which works simultaneously with the body’s structure/soft tissues and the body’s energy/nervous system to achieve an optimized therapeutic benefit.  The segment of the curriculum confers Certification in Deep Massage: The Lauterstein Method, for all who pass and attend all hours.  It will include techniques in the side-lying position, work with the core muscles such as the iliopsoas and diaphragm, fulcrums for the deep lateral rotators, adductor magnus, the rotator cuff, and refinement of all the basic Deep Massage fulcrums and protocol.  This segment also includes a private one-on-one Deep Massage teaching session.  For students without prior study of this particular modality, this segment will include an additional free introduction to the concepts and techniques of basic Deep Massage (otherwise covered in our 500-hour program). (TBA – Take as a Workshop – CLICK HERE)
