Structural Essentials: Head, Neck, and Jaw

Date: November 17 – 18, 2018
Time: 9:00am-5:00pm each day
Tuition: Early Bird $345 paid in full by October 19th / $395 thereafter
Tuition is due at time of registration, no exceptions.
Cancellation Fee $100 non-refundable service fee
CEs: 14 NCBTMB; VPTA 14 CEs


The Structural Essential series is a set of intensive soft-tissue technique courses divided into functional regions. Combining movement and manual techniques for the most efficient and long-lasting results, and using the latest research on the interaction between skeleton, muscles, joints, and fascial proprioceptors, this series of workshops will take you to a new level in therapy.

Designed with the busy therapist in mind, each Structural Essentials event gives you a new understanding of the relevant area. The content will outline how the structural and functional anatomy relates to many common issues as well as to the rest of the body. Based on many new and established approaches this series will give you the skills in palpation, BodyReading and functional analysis needed for the modern multidisciplinary therapist

Head, Neck and Jaw

The neck is a remarkable feat of biomechanical engineering, giving a combination of wide range of movement but maintaining a structural strength. It is often seen as the last site of compensation as it corrects for any alteration from below allowing the eyes and ears to orient to the horizon. Patterns can of course work their way in the other direction and particularly from the jaw and its many possible patterns of movement and holding. This course will focus on key areas of the neck and jaw complex to allow you to build successful strategies to ease these potential problem areas alleviating the issues working in both directions and setting the body up for a longer lasting change.

Highlights include:

The sub-occipital muscles
The laminar groove & deep cervical muscles
The muscular wires of the front of the neck – anterior scalenes & longus colli muscles
Intra-oral work for the hyoid complex, the tongue, and the floor of the mouth
The jaw muscles, TMJ, the palate & facial muscles

The Structural Essentials workshops are most easily absorbed in the order outlined below but you can do them in any order as time permits.

Arches and the Legs – 3 days
Fans of the Hip – 2 ½ days
Abdomen, Chest and Breath – 2 ½ days
Tensegrity Spine – 2 ½ days
Shoulders & Arms – 2 ½ days
Head, Neck & Jaw – 2 days

48 Continuing Education Units
Approved for Continuing Education: NCBTMB
Tuition: $900 if paid in full by April 2nd (increases to $1000 on April 3rd)
Prerequisites: Graduates of a 500+ hour professional massage therapy training program

This 6-day Oncology Massage course is an opportunity to learn not only the basics of oncology massage, but also some of the more specific details that will get you started if your path is leading you in the direction of working with clients affected by cancer.

It includes three supervised, hands-on clinics with actual clients (one specifically addressing scar tissue and two full-body, client-centered sessions). Students will develop a working knowledge of the disease process of cancer as it relates to massage therapy as well as the ability to speak intelligently with colleagues, other medical professionals and clients about the benefits and safety of oncology massage. The course includes daily opportunities to practice hands-on protocols and techniques which can be put into practice immediately. Six days also affords the opportunity to address the topics of building an oncology massage practice and/or hospital program, including how to talk to doctors, how to approach medical offices and infusion centers and how to network within existing programs. In addition to technical skills, students will learn about themselves and their beliefs and assumptions about disease, wellness and death and dying. It might be the most fun you’ve ever had learning about cancer.

Cancellation Policy
A $500 deposit is required to hold your space in this class. Included in this deposit is a non-refundable $75 registration fee. The full course tuition is due no later than 30 days prior to the first day of class.

14 Continuing Education Units
Tuition: $375 until May 1st (increases to $425 on May 2nd)
Prerequisites: Must be a practicing massage therapist or physical therapist

This course is designed to advance the therapist’s understanding of fascia’s structure and function and pathophysiological consequences associated with commonly addressed clinical presentations (e.g. soft-tissue scars, sprains/strains, tendinopathies, over-use type injuries, low back pain/dysfunction, sliding and force transmission impairments and neurovascular compression syndromes).

The aim of the practical component is to assist the therapist with; broadening their skill set (assess for fascial dysfunction, manually engage fascia and provide safe, non-invasive treatment), improving delivery of care and achieving better patient outcomes.
The course material includes emerging research and concepts from the International Fascia Research Congress’ and evidence informed clinical considerations applicable to massage/manual therapists.

To expand the therapist’s ‘global’ thinking and treatment skills, an introduction to the functional lines (e.g. myokinetic chains or myofascial meridians) will also be included.

The material and hands-on are delivered in a comprehensive, yet user-friendly manner, infused with humor and loaded with easy to integrate, practical skills and knowledge!
