Cupping Massage brings the ancient art of cupping to the modern-day practice. This modality allows for a unique approach to the fascia and body fluids. Cupping has an ability to affect deeper tissue, remove fascial restrictions, and increase range of motion, with little stress on your hands. This modality takes only one day to learn and you will walk away with a whole new technique to add to your skills.

Cupping goes far beyond simple fascial techniques, concepts such as angiogenesis, metabolism and immune response will be explored. Cupping is put into context within the global environment, with discussions and demonstrations providing understanding of the affects cupping has on the whole body. During the practical component the theory will be put into practice, along with discussion and demonstrations of the physiological changes that take place. Application will cover more than just the back; scars, fascia, joints, trigger points, muscle imbalances and even pleura techniques will be applied.

Note: Health professionals require training and certification to be covered within liability insurance. Traditional cupping (fire cupping) is restricted to Acupuncturists and TCM practitioners.

THE SACRUM AND THE PELVIS
A good foundation consists of structure and symmetry in motion. Add these two together and the results are improved function. Based on Muscle Energy Technique (MET), PNF and symmetrical movements, this course will teach you how to perform structural assessments and corrections of the sacrum/pelvis.MET is one of the most effective and valuable manual techniques for the assessment and correction of somatic asymmetry and hypomobility.

This workshop will enhance your pelvic assessment skills and give you a different approach to treatment that you can incorporate immediately into your present clinical practice. We will focus on how structure and symmetry give you a strong foundation and are key to proper function.

COURSE OBJECTIVES
Enhance palpation of "barriers" in joint movement with minimal effort
-Palpate landmarks of the pelvis and sacrum
-Structurally evaluate the pelvis and sacrum
-Perform basic Muscle Energy Techniques for the Pelvis and Sacrum

Course Details
The shoulder joint, is the most flexible joint in the body. It is surrounded and influenced by over a dozen muscles which allow it the greatest ranges of motion possible of any joint of the body. When the integrity of this joint is affected by trauma, most of these muscles and their associated fascia will respond by creating excessive tensile forces to protect this area from any further harm. Upper trapezius and levator scapula muscles when they are stressed by physical, mental and emotional trauma as well as posture can take on a seemingly solidified texture.
Join us in exploring how to assess and treat this area using fascial techniques and exercises to bring about release to the muscles and fascia of the shoulder region.
What You Will Learn
" How to assess for shoulder imbalances
" Understanding the relationships that the muscles of the shoulder region 
have with each other and their role in the imbalance
" How to address the fascial tension of the anterior and posterior upper 
body
" Fascial treatment for specific musculature
" How to put an effective treatment plan together to treat the shoulder 
region and surrounding tissue
" Hands on techniques and practice to treat the shoulder region
" Stretches to isolate specific muscles and their coinciding fascia

What to Bring
" Sports bra/tank top (comfortable clothing)
" Sheets/Pillow
" Snacks/Lunch/Water

About the Instructor
Peter Stuart has been a massage therapist and educator since 1993, specializing in myofascial release within heart-centered therapy, treatment of chronic pain conditions, and transformation from the negative effects of trauma.

Course Details
In this three-day craniosacral therapy class, we deepen our awareness of the innate ability of the body to heal itself. We explore the notion that the body has an inner voice and can express itself-and that the awareness of this expression can be used as a therapeutic tool. The student will learn how to palpate fluctuations in the craniosacral rhythm that reflect the body's self-correcting mechanisms.

New skills offered will include direct communication with the inner wisdom through dialogue, listening and palpation of changes in the craniosacral rhythm and the tissues. Techniques to facilitate mobility of the tissues of the "Avenue of Expression" (as described by John Upledger) will be taught to assist the communication process.

Recognizing and honoring the patient's biological process and the ability of the body to express itself will be central themes of this class.

What to Bring

" CST Handbook (purchased during the SE1 course)

Table Thai Yoga Massage can considerably expand your clientele base, while giving you the tools to take even better care of your body and promote a sustainable massage career. This course brings the incredible benefits of Thai Yoga Massage - including yoga-like stretching, profound relaxation, and energy work - to the comforts of a massage table. Performed on a traditional massage table with the recipient fully clothed, this practice attracts a broad cross-section of clients including athletes, elderly, and those who simply prefer to be massaged on a table. Therapists used to traditional table massage will reduce injuries to hands and wrists by learning to use elbows, forearms, feet and other parts of their body. Those used to Thai on a mat will augment their practice with a new, flexible form.

This course builds on the foundations learned in Table Thai Level 1 and expands students' repertoire to two hours worth of massage techniques. During this course, students will:
" Learn a new 60-minute flow while reviewing all postures and techniques taught in Table Thai 1;
" Incorporate sen lines (energy pathways) and Indian pressure points into the massage;
" Understand how to customize to accommodate people of different sizes, flexibilities, and limitations.

Course Details
TMJ Mastery is a 3-day workshop focusing on principles and applications that explore intra-oral techniques used to treat masticatory dysfunction. Included is a comprehensive visual study of the continuum of articular disc derangement, and the techniques that may restore function or alter further degeneration.

This course is intended to expand upon the TMJ/intra-oral topics covered in the original 2200-hour massage therapy curriculum. Therefore, it is a graduate course where some assumptions will be made regarding your familiarity of the anatomy, physiology and mechanical function of the head, neck and face. The workshop is not meant as a definitive, full evidence-based research project but more of a working set of ideas and principles that might bring new possibilities into a massage therapists' repertoire. We will be incorporating myofascial techniques affecting the masticatory musculature, and developing strategies to assess and restore asymmetrical condylar movement. The intra-oral techniques will also include joint mobilizations that attempt to de-compress and re-establish articular disc space.

What to Bring

" Nitrile gloves
" 1 hand towel / 1 bath towel / 1 sheet / light blanket (optional)
" Lotion (no oil, please)
" Binder / pen / 4 coloured highlighters / coloured pencils
" Snacks, lunch, water

About the Instructor
John graduated in 1989 from Sutherland-Chan School in Toronto. In 1992 he attended a mentor's workshop called "Working in the Mouth" and discovered that many present clients had TMJ Dysfunction - but thought nothing could be done. He has been an instructor in London's massage therapy school, has presented at provincial massage therapy conferences, inter-national fitness symposiums, an internet based virtual World Massage Conference and published a 3-part series of articles on TMJ dysfunction in a national massage therapy magazine. By the new millennium John's mentor had retired the TMJ subject and to meet the demand of this niche modality the workshop TMJ Mastery was created. He lives and works in London, Ontario at the clinic Wholistic Body Works and receives TMJD clientele from word-of-mouth, chiropractors, dentists, speech therapists and music/vocal coaches. In his spare time cycle touring and black & white photography allow creative opportunities.

" Review of Lymphatic anatomy
" Review of Craniosacral structural anatomy
" Exploring the research suggesting the presence of lymphatic influence in the absorption of CSF in the brain, spine and body
" Basic CST and Lymphatic manual technique integration
" Clinical applications, conditions and precautions
" Extensive hands-on learning and supervised practice

The attending student will:
" Learn Lymphatic anatomy, location, structure and function
" Learn how to integrate lymphatic facilitation in a CST session
" Be able to recognize the symbiotic relationship between CST and CSF production and MLT and CSF re-absorption
" Be able to apply basic lymphatic techniques as part of a CST session as needed based on knowledge of clinical applications, contraindications and patient populations.
