Cancer and Massage: Finding the New Normal-16 CEUs (2 Day Workshop)-presented by Mary Aguilera-Titus

Massage and Cancer: Finding the New Normal is a 16 CE workshop is focused on providing touch therapists with an understanding of cancer, a review of various therapies involved in the treatment of cancer and focus on long term and late term effects. These effects will impact the delivery of an informed and supportive massage therapy session.

Structural Release of the Hip-8 CEUs (Saturday) and Structural Release of the Abdominals and Psoas-8 CEUs (Sunday)-presented by Gary Schwander
STRUCTURAL RELEASE will teach the theory and techniques for structural realignment of the body. This can enable you to integrate and combine the conscious awareness of body, mind and spirit to facilitate advanced states of healing. The intent of the treatments is to balance the body into alignment with its environment, freeing the energy flow that will enhance the body’s physiological and psychological function.
The Hip course will assess and balance a tilted and rotated pelvis. A balanced pelvis will lead to structural integrity of the whole body.
The Abdominal course will release the diaphragm and abdominal cavity and free the psoas to increase and maintain the clients structural integrity.
During these workshops: We will review the anatomical structure of the areas being taught, learn structural assessment for the areas, learn the hands-on techniques and give and receive a two hour session. You will be able to immediately integrate the information learned in these courses into your current practice.
Items needed for workshop: Massage Table, Pillow/Bolster, & Sheets. Wear loose, comfortable clothing
