APRIL

Can You Fix My TMJ
Saturday, April 13th, 2019 
Seattle, WA

tmj_IphotoWhen 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.

myofascial_image_small

When low back pain persists with treatment, we look to expanded assessment and treatment strategies including structural and neurologic patterns arising from joints, viscera and myofascia, local and remote. Manual practitioners who understand these various systemic influences will assist the the most kinds of patient presentations. And incorporating treatments that target both joint and muscle myofasical release, at specific layers and vectors have the greatest possibility of effect.

Trager Level 1 Training 
Friday, June 14th-Sunday, June 16, 2019 
Bellingham, WA

Trager® is an approach developed by Milton Trager, MD who first developed the basic technique principles at the age of 18 and spent over 50 years refining his work. Trager® is a unique, neuromuscular approach to bodywork and movement re-patterning. Trager® tablework consists of deep, fluid rocking movements (oscillations) of muscles and joints combined with compression and gentle traction. This feeds into the nervous system resulting in dramatic muscular relaxation, along with feelings of lightness, freedom, and flexibility. The client is also shown simple movements called Mentastics which helps integrate the profound changes in the body.

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.

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.
