Resetting the Body After Injury and Trauma
October 7-8th, Walla Walla, WA

istockphoto_5664112-brainInjury creates two effects: the primary effect is the initial acute pathologic changes to muscle, fascia, nerve, or other structures of the body due to an injury, and the secondary effect is the body’s protective, defensive bracing around the injury. Too often this becomes part of the client’s chronic postural and pain patterns—long after acute problems are successfully resolved.

In this course, we’ll learn to restore balance to the sensori-motor nervous system, attune and respond to clients with empathic resonance both verbally and somatically, and facilitate the release of unnecessary, protective patterning.

INSTRUCTOR:
Joe Rodin MA, LMP, CTP., has been practicing bodywork for seventeen years. A certified Trager® Practitioner, he’s also studied and taught cranial sacral therapy and other forms of manual therapy in Washington and California.

WHAT STUDENTS ARE SAYING:

Clear content with Amazing Results!
Kristi Z, LMP

I appreciate Joe’s humbleness and his skill and wisdom.’
Barbra Helyn Heard

Unique, 10/10, rare to see such an integrative philosophy, I’ll be checking into Joe’s other classes
Judy Hammer, LMP

This class was more informative and challenging than I expected. Presentation, expertise, and instructor’s preparedness were excellent.
Iris Forcier LMP, Seattle

Well put together, humorous, easy to follow, easy to understand and retain. Very useful, gave a great other perspective of technique and showed additional intent that changes how I can approach tem. I liked the instructor’s attitude and style of teaching as well as his approach to technique, especially the mind-body connection. Joe is a fantastic teacher and the class enjoyable, and easy to follow while still being profound.
Alex Ashworth

Love the tone you set for the class, ‘open,’ ‘no right or wrong.’ Excellent, 10/10. You wove together complex concepts as though describing a gentle dance—movement and flow. Have never had an instructor emphasize that—top notch. Integrative class, not compartmentalized. Easy to begin using with clients right away. Instructors style is pleasantly unique and inviting.

Resetting the Body After Trauma
Saturday, November 11th
Seattle, WA

istockphoto_5664112-brainTrauma occurs when destructive events overwhelm our system’s higher defenses, and our organism resorts to internal fragmentation or walling off to cope with its devastating effects. These can include nervous system hypervigilance , rigid somatic patterning, and conditioned emotional responses.

Through skillful touch and bodywork we can facilitate clients in releasing these effects, becoming present in their bodies, and learning to reunite to their experience of wholeness.

In this course, we’ll learn to restore balance to the sensori-motor nervous system, attune and respond to clients with empathic resonance both verbally and somatically, and facilitate the release of unnecessary, protective patterning.

Headaches Many Faces
December 10th, Seattle, WA

tmj_IphotoHeadaches refer to a broad range of pain experienced in the head, face and skull. They derive from any combination of various structures including nerves, sutures, sinuses, arteries, muscles, and the functional and structural abnormalities. Sources can be both local and remote from the site of pain.

The key to treating headaches is combining the client’s symptom profile with incisive history taking and prolific palpatory assessment. We can then differentiate among the many sources and types of headache and base our treatments accordingly.

In this workshop we’ll differentiate between facial, sutural, TMJ, neurologic, structural and vestibular causes that result in migraine, tension, sinus, cluster and other headaches. We’ll learn both their presentation and targeted methods of treatment.
