Seattle, WA

myofascial_image_small

Non-traumatic, chronic back pain often is often caused by issues upstream to the low back. When clients have chronic low back pain, finding and treating contributing structures from the upper body can be the key to effect full resolution. Learn dynamic assessments and treatments for relationships of the following structures to low back pain, including: organs, bones, joints, and myofascia of the torso, upper extremities, neck and head. By the end of class students will be able to confidently assess and treat non-local structures contributing to stubborn, non-abating low back pain.

Wednesday, May 11th, 2022
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.

JUNE

Finding the Cause of Low Back Pain:
Sunday, June 12th, 2022 
Seattle, WA

myofascial_image_small-300x300.jpg

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 3 with Roger Tolle
June 17-19th and 24-26th
 Bellingham, WA

Trager® has become known as a highly effective neuro-fascial approach to bodywork and somatic movement therapy with applications in rehabilitation, movement re-patterning and psychophysical integration.

The tablework, involving deep, fluid rocking movements (oscillations) of muscles and joints combined with gentle traction and compression, feeds the brain’s natural neuroplasticity and induces dramatic muscular relaxation, along with feelings of lightness, freedom, and flexibility. Sessions also include individualized, mindful, somatic movement explorations called Mentastics®. 

Trager® Level 3, which can also be a stand alone workshop with prerequisites, is the third step of our Bellingham Trager® Certification Series, designed for students to experience a deeper level of personal, professional, and spiritual integration while developing Trager® Approach as a primary modality in their practice. You’ll come away with an initial protocol to integrate into your current bodywork practice and a foundation for development and certification in the Trager® Approach.

The Bellingham Trager® Certification series is an in-depth, ten month training, providing the skills and support necessary to integrate highly proficient Trager® work into your successful practice, to expand the number of presentations in which you can be effective, and to deepen levels of personal, professional and spiritual integration in yourself and your clients.

AUGUST

Concussions, Dents and Dings
Saturday, August 6th, 2022 
Seattle, WA

MMF_SF (1)

Many who suffer from headaches have histories of high intensity impact to the the body, neck and head including from MVA’s, athletics, extreme sport, trauma, and more. While these patients vary in headache presentation, they often share a common thread of excessive force to upper pole somatic structures.
 
In this course we’ll learn to use soft tissue techniques to release locked in, compressive forces from the cervical spine, jaws, face and cranial periostium, minimizing these forces on chronic headache presentations. Techniques focus on myofascia, joints in the structures of the upper pole.

SEPTEMBER

Can You Fix My TMJ 
Saturday, September 10th, 2022 
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.

OCTOBER

Finding the Source of Headache Pain
Sunday, October 2nd, 2022
Seattle, WA

Headaches 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.

MMF_SF (1)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.
