JULY

Resetting The Body After Injury
Saturday, July 14th 2019 
Seattle, WA

Injury 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 injurythe 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.

You will learn to: Identify bracing patterns in the body apart from injury or trauma. Assess dysfunctional myofasical chains and their sequences of firing. Learn methods to dissolve these patterns, reset the body, and re-introduce the natural vocabulary of healthy movement.

Ethics: Mindful Massage Therapy: Dealing With Human Vulnerabilities In Ourselves and Others
Sunday, July 15  2019 
Seattle, WA

It is often hard to know when our clients just need someone to listen to them, when we can/should help them with a problem, or should refer to them on to another professional. In this class, we will take inventory of our individual availability to be present for our clients emotional and physical needs and will refine our sense of boundaries, personal as well as professional.

NOVEMBER

Treating the Source of Headache Pain
Sunday, November 17th  2019 
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.

DECEMBER

Resetting The Body After Trauma
Saturday, December 8th 2019
Seattle, WA

When trauma (both physical and mental) occurs, our bodies and minds wall off the effects, so we can continue to function. While this has survival value initially, over time it impales our innate sense of wholeness. These effects can include nervous system hyper-vigilance, rigid somatic patterning and conditioned emotional responses.

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