This class will offer a multi-disciplinary approach to working with the Core of Pain: the abdominal muscles, diaphragm, thoracic spine, rib cage, and scalenes. We will explore myofascial assessments, deep tis- sue techniques, passive and active stretching, muscle energy tech- niques, hydrotherapies, and self-care. We will also explore pranaya- ma (breath) and relaxation techniques. We will review current find- ings from the Fascia Research Society and investigate the unique na- ture of the connective tissues.
Deepen your clinical skills by exploring how manual therapies can help clients with asthma, COPD and other breathing dysfunctions. This class is designed to help you pinpoint problem areas quickly, de- vise strategies to eliminate pain, and work collaboratively with your client. You will receive lots of bodywork, learn new ways to handle clients with chronic pain, and reconnect with fellow massage thera- pists.
