Clinical Massage for Sciatica and Piriformis Syndrome with Bob Steine – FULL – Call to be put on waitlist. 

Sun, Sept 11

Ida Rolf focused on the pelvis as the center point of our physical structure and therefore its dysfunction playing a central role in many orthopedic complaints.

TMJ Dysfunction: An Integrated Clinical Approach with Christopher Fritel
Sat & Sun, Sept 17-18

Tension in the temporomandibular joint is, along with low back pain, one of the most common complaints. It will more or less affect every one of your clients. Whether their jaw tension is related to trauma, misalignment, or life stress, it is important that every therapist have the understanding and tools to successfully resolve TMJ dysfunction. This workshop will give you important new techniques and a much deeper skillset to assess and treat TMJ dysfunction.

The Iliopsoas – Deep Massage, Anatomy, & Movement with David Lauterstein
Sun, Sept 25

The Iliopsoas is one of the most fascinating muscles in the body. It is basically the ONLY muscle that connects the upper and lower half of the body. It houses within itself the lumbar plexus of the nervous system. It is the main muscle that initiates each forward step you take. Learn to apply greater anatomical clarity here through deep massage techniques that will profoundly affect both this area and the overall structure and energy of the person.

Orthopedic Massage for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome with Kevin Graef
Sun, Oct 16

We have, unfortunately, the computer culture to thank for the epidemic of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) and forearm and hand tension syndromes. This is a repetitive strain injury that affects more people each day. To address it you need to know the causes, special tests to assess CTS, myofascial release techniques for the relevant muscles, tendons and ligaments, stretches, and self-massage for clients to help them overcome this all-to-commonly chronic problem.

Precise Deep Tissue Techniques for the Muscles and Ligaments of the Anterior, Lateral, and Posterior Neck with Brian Utting
Sat & Sun, Nov 5-6

The modern world puts tremendous amount of strain on the neck; between driving, viewing computers and cell phones, there is almost no one without chronic neck tension or injury.  It is surprising, given how common it is, that therapists do not have a clear knowledge, palpation skills or techniques to address the complexity of the neck with its 18 muscles and 7 ligaments.. This important class, taught by one of the foremost deep tissue instructors in the world, Brian Utting, will give you tremendous clarity and skill for working with clients’ neck issues.

Zero Balancing I with David Lauterstein
Thur, Fri, Sat, & Sun, Nov 10-13

Zero Balancing has been, since the 1970’s one of the most powerful and pathbreaking therapies within the bodywork realm.  It was developed by Fritz Smith, MD arising from his studies and training in osteopathy, Rolfing, acupuncture, Eastern and Western views of anatomy and energy.   Zero Balancing gives therapists the ability to fully address the musculo-skeletal system, concentrating on the connective tissues, joints, and energy flow in relationship to the bones, creating balance and ease within the deepest layers of the body’s energy and structure.  David Lauterstein has been enthusiastically teaching Zero Balancing for over 20 years.
