Course Details
This is a 12-hour, 2-day Live, Online course offered through Zoom (the meeting platform)

Learn from the Cupping Therapy Experts! Join us for this 2-day, hands-on training. This advanced cupping course was designed for those who want more detailed treatments of the face, head and neck. We will touch on the basics, discuss types of cups commonly found in the marketplace, review the assessments of the areas covered in the course, discuss current research, informed consent, contraindications/indications and other considerations and a quick review of cupping techniques.

We will go over treatments for many conditions from nonspecific neck pain, headaches, temporomandibular dysfunction, Bell’s palsy, trigeminal neuralgia, sinusitis and more. Presented will be assessments and cupping treatments and where applicable, treatments and results from research studies.
This course is a mixture of lecture and hands-on practice, in a live format, delivered online. You will need some experience in cupping, some cups, a person to practice on (you can practice on yourself!) and a good internet connection with a device that has 2-way audio and video. With your registration you will be emailed a course manual and timeline. After completion you will be emailed your certificate of completion, cleaning directions, health history form and cupping consent form.

This Cupping course is unique in that we do not focus on any one 'type' of Cupping Therapy but rather focus on the research available and the types of treatments that can be provided using the various products in the marketplace. This approach provides you with the knowledge and skill on how to use a number of different types of cups to achieve the overall therapeutic outcome your clients are looking for.
Save your body and your hands and most importantly, discover how the versatility of cupping therapy can transform your practice into life-changing bodywork.

What you will need for the course:
• A laptop with a camera or a computer with a webcam or a tripod for your phone/tablet and a bit of space to work in. The camera will pick up what you are doing, so a way of using it close to you and hands free will be very helpful.
• A good quality internet connection
• A headset or headphones with a mic (the ones that come with most phones will work well) This will stop feedback from happening when people have open microphones.
• A person to practice on – if you are isolating, no worries you can practice on yourself!
• Massage table and linens, massage oil, and whatever makes you happy in your treatment room. If you do not have a partner this is not necessary but could make it easier to practice on yourself
• You will need a set of cups. If you do not have cups check out our online sample pack. https://cuppingcanada.ca/collections/all
• Hydrogen peroxide – if you are able to access it above 7.5% from a hydroponics store or a pool supply store. It is not mandatory for the course but required for disinfection once you begin working with clients, so it is good to have on hand.
• A Zoom meeting link and course e-manual will be sent to all course participants via email one week before the course is scheduled to begin.

Course Details
This is self-paced online course offered through Zoom (the meeting platform)
RAPID-NFR allows the practitioner a fast and effective method of treating the most complex musculoskeletal issues that therapists encounter. Our goal for this course is to not only give the practitioner a successful method of neurologically desensitizing the tissue but also increase their palpation skills and learn simple protocols to release and restore range of motion.

"Well over half the people who seek out therapists do so because of pain. As therapists, it is our job to ensure we help our clients resolve their pain quickly and effectively."

Immediate application–after your first weekend seminar, you will be well-equipped to be able to deal efficiently with your client’s pain and range of motion concerns. You will have a new understanding of the central nervous system's role in the release of tissue tightness and how to achieve those changes quickly and with the least effort possible. Your clients will notice immediate changes and your business will grow exponentially.

Curious about just what you will learn at a RAPID NeuroFascial Reset course?
Upon successful completion of this course, participants will be able to palpate and stimulate the nervous system to alter tissue tension. Participants will also have a firm grasp of the neurological basis for fascial and muscular relaxation of the tissues and understand how to access the neurobiological system in which the fascial system communicates. Participants will also understand the role of injury in its relationship with inflammation, tissue tightness, neuromuscular control and muscle imbalance in regard to the motor control center; as well as how all of these can contribute to increased tissue tension and pain. Participants will also gain an advanced understanding of the mechanoreceptors of the fascia, as well as a method of manipulation to affect the greatest changes in tissue tension, tightness and foremost pain.
We hope you will join us!!

What will you learn?
Complete neurological-based protocols to reduce tension in muscles, nerves, tendons and ligaments of the upper body. Which will include protocols for:

UPPER BODY SEMINAR

-Migraines/ Headaches
-Frozen Shoulder
-Golfer's and Tennis Elbow
-Back Pain

Course Details
This is a 2.5-day (16 hours), Live, Online course offered through Zoom (the meeting platform)

Myofascial release is a way of connecting to the body in a profound way. As a therapist, you will learn and experience ways to engage with the fascial tissue at the restriction or barrier, and learn to allow change, softening and releasing to happen. This physical and energetic communication between practitioner and client, and between the cells of the client’s own body, facilitate transformation and release of old patterns, toxins and beliefs that have held the body prisoner to pain and restrictive forces, sometimes for years.

This light, gentle, but profoundly effective technique will greatly enhance your skills as a bodyworker and give you powerful options in your work with clients. Even your awareness of your own somatic tension will increase, as you touch in to the wisdom of the body. If you have found myofascial release challenging in the past, this course will help you to feel confident as a practitioner and in communicating the benefits to your patients.

We will explore the fascia through movement and body practices, as well as learning techniques to practice with another person. Having a partner available to practice on is preferable, but not absolutely required. Most of the techniques can be adapted to try on yourself and video demos of all techniques will be shown.

The following reading materials may enhance your understanding but is not required as we will be covering the important points in the course itself. I will also share various videos and research papers about fascia during the course and links will be shared at that time.

Hip pain is complex and can range from nagging pain to often debilitating and dysfunctional conditions. While the hip can present with an array of conditions, these can be isolated to a few primary dysfunctional mechanisms. From a thorough assessment, the practitioner can gain an understanding of pain driving mechanisms in the hip. From here they are able to better devise both a treatment and exercise plan for their patients to lead to the best possible outcomes. Come and join us for this flagship course on solving complex hip pain with simple solutions.

The overall course objectives are to give the massage therapist a competent understanding of:
• Relevant anatomy and pathophysiology of the conditions in the hip
• An understanding and interpretation of assessment findings and how they may carry over into the treatment
• An understanding of the influence the lumbar spine and trunk can play on hip dysfunction
• How to apply findings from the assessment and carry them over into program design for rehabilitation
• How to take hip pain and build a home program for a patient which will allow them to take themselves from lower levels of movement up to more advanced stages of movement awareness and competency

Course Outline
9:00am-10:00am - Introduction, review relevant anatomy, and pathophysiology of the anterior and posterior hip girdle.
10am-12:30pm - Organizing your assessment. From intake to range of motion, palpations, and special tests. Understand their meanings, why it matters, and tease out any irrelevant information.
12:30pm-1:30pm - Lunch (there will be two, 15-minute breaks in the AM and PM).
1:30pm-2:30pm - The influence of the lumbar spine on hip pain, relevance, and discussion for inclusion.
2:30pm-4:30pm - How to take what you find in assessment and build a bulletproof hip program for your patients. We will discuss scenarios from patients with lower movement competencies to advanced level patients. Program outlines will include core stability exercises, self-mobility drills, static stability drills, and dynamic movements with the goal of taking someone from entry level to more advanced stages of movement.
4:30pm-5:00pm - Review and course summary, final words.

What to Bring
• Nothing is required.

• A Zoom meeting link will be sent to all course participants via email the day before the course is scheduled to begin.
• The instructor will have a “body” with him, and he will take the “body” through the exercises. Participants will not be required to workshop with a partner in a group (as they would do in a live, in-person course).
• Participants will have access to the replay video for one month post course date.

Course Details
This is a 2-day (14 hours), Live, Online course offered through Zoom (the meeting platform)

This course offers a foundational part of how we can uphold our professional capacity when working with touch. It is relevant to any health professionals who touch their patients or clients.

Touch is an instinctive, natural language that we can all speak and understand. It’s essential for stimulating our nervous system and promoting healthy physical development. It is also critical for our mental and social development. We will explore and work with the beneficial effects of conscious touch and the resultant natural release of the feel-good hormone oxytocin to bring you to a place of peace, empowerment, growth and self-connection. As touch professionals we should be experts in negotiating boundaries and consent around touch.

As human beings we have needs and desires in many areas. We are however, often "programmed" so that we are not able to own these needs and desires. Often being told that we don’t deserve or not even allowed them. Many of us have learnt to disconnect from our needs and desires, getting to a place where we no longer know what we truly want. As a result, we often develop unconscious strategies for getting these needs met and, as they are not conscious, they can be manipulations. This lack of clarity in understanding and owning what we really want can result in difficult dynamics in our relationships not only with others but also ourselves and the world around us. When we are clear what our boundaries are we can start to move into conscious consent. This clarity allows for clean interactions between us and our patients and helps us communicate effectively with our colleagues, patients and peers.

We will start with the topics of voice and speaking your truth, and then we’ll go on to consider assertiveness. Power dynamics, personal space, culture, marginalization, intention, humor, and forgiveness in setting and maintaining boundaries. Finally, we will consider how trauma can alter a person’s ability to hold clear boundaries, or give real consent, and we will learn some quick and effective tools to model and encourage embodied consent with our patients.

Some of the material will be self-exploration, on or off camera (on Zoom), some will take place in smaller numbers in breakout rooms, and some will be demos and discussion with the whole group. Individuals must attend and have their camera on for most of the course so attendance can be monitored. (If someone doesn’t have a camera or some other technical difficulty arises - modifications can be made to ensure adequate participation)

Having a private, quiet space for the duration of the course is helpful to minimize distractions and for the emotional safety of the other participants. A device or computer with Zoom capability is necessary to access the course.

The exercises and activities in this course can be done on yourself and a partner is not necessary; although, you may find it helpful to practice with a friend to deepen your awareness of the topics covered.

What to bring
- Please bring a notebook and pen and an open and curious mind and body to this course!
- A device or computer that has the capability to join a Zoom call is required for this course-with a camera and microphone capability.
- There will be an hour for lunch.
- Practice times will be included to break up the screen time.
- A Zoom meeting link will be sent to all course participants via email the day before the course is scheduled to begin.

*Student members are eligible to take this course. Not eligible for the 50% offer.

Course Details
This is a 1-day (7 hour), Live, Online course offered through Zoom (the meeting platform).

This one-day (1) course provides a solid foundation on how to effectively communicate with, write reports, and invoice insurance companies for motor vehicle collisions in New Brunswick. More than ever massage therapy is becoming accepted by medical professionals as a regular part of healthcare, and as a result, massage therapists can invoice insurance companies for massage therapy treatments related to motor vehicle collisions.
Learning how to communicate, write reports, and invoice insurance companies for massage therapy treatments can help build your massage therapy practice. Since each insurance company has different plans and rules around submitting reports and invoicing, learning how to ask the right questions to the right people will help guide you to build a professional relationship with adjusters.
This course was created from my own research (along with adjusters from various insurance companies) and based on exactly what they expect from massage therapists when submitting reports and invoicing due to motor vehicle collisions in New Brunswick.

What to bring

- Pen & Paper.
-A device or computer that has the capability to join a Zoom call is required for this course-with a camera and microphone capability.
- A Zoom meeting link will be sent to all course participants via email the day before the course is scheduled to begin.
