Oncology Massage Intensive (6-days)

Monday, June 3, 2019 - Sunday, June 9, 2019
08:30 AM - 05:30 PM

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

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!

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 manual 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.

Fans of the Hip

The hip and pelvis combine to transfer the forces from two legs and into the one spine and therefore has a hugely complex role to fulfill in the body. Ida Rolf described the pelvis as ‘the joint that determines symmetry’ and it is easy to see why. Differences between the hips can affect down into the legs or up through the spine. Achieving balance here can be essential for long lasting results in any therapy. This course sheds light on the pelvis – the keystone of human architecture – by organizing the 20 or so muscles of the pelvis into three fans. Get specific with sensitivity.

Highlights include:

Seeing how the soft tissue is arranged in an easy to understand pattern
Using these fans to balance pelvic tilts and torsions
Learning how to work accurately, effectively and sensitively with the adductors around the ischial ramus and deep lateral rotators, leading to the pelvic floor
The psoas complex and the many variations on ideas of how it does (or does not)
affect pelvic, low back and hip patterns

It is strongly recommended to take the Anatomy Trains in Structure & Function course before taking the SE courses. Familiarity with the Anatomy Trains lines and concepts is key to getting the most from the program.

The Center for Aromatherapy and Research Education (C.A.R.E.) -- A CARE Intensive is a four-day training in Raindrop Technique, Applied Vitaflex Technique, Chemistry of Essential Oils, Emotional Release with Essential Oils, and History of Anointing and Laying on of Hands. This program provides practical applied aromatherapy skills for professionals who choose to integrate essential oils into their practices, as well as for the non-professionals who want to increase the health and well-being of themselves, family, and friends. Participating in a CARE Intensive can lead to a Certified RaindropTechnique Specialist status and/or Certification as a CARE Instructor.  
 
In this course, participants will learn the fundamentals of aromatherapy, the science and chemistry of essential oils, and how to use essential oils to facilitate emotional release--for others, as well as for themselves. Thirteen specific VitaFlex techniques will be taught, practiced and experienced by all participants. Participants will learn the history and benefits of Raindrop Technique and how to apply it safely. Every participant will receive a full Raindrop Technique session.  
 
RAINDROP TECHNIQUE
Raindrop originated in the 1980's through the research of Dr. D. Gary Young. Raindrop is a powerful, non-invasive tool integrating the art of aromatic science with the technique of Vitaflex and gentle applications of therapeutic grade oils on the feet and back. The purpose of Raindrop Technique is to stimulate every organ, muscle and bone at a cellular level bringing the body into structural and electrical balance, enabling the release of toxins wherever they may be. This may include those lodged in the mind and emotions.
 
APPLIED VITAFLEX
Vitaflex is an ancient healing modality that was rediscovered by Stanley Burroughs in the late 1920's. Vitaflex is a digital electrical stimulation that activates neuro pathways, delivering benefits of the essential oils. The body has a self-regulating electrical system that Vitaflex stimulates.

Abdomen, Chest & Breath

The breath is an essential food for life and its passage in and out of the body can be compromised by structural issues in the trunk. The trunk must also act to support the shoulders as well as the neck and head. Its position and relationship with the pelvis can therefore be vital for correct mechanics of the upper limbs and head, neck and jaw.

This course focuses on ribcage and thoracic spine mechanics, and includes:

The anatomy and physiology of the breath
Various therapeutic views of the ‘normal’ breath
Techniques for abdominal fasciae, ribs, vertebral rib joints, and mediastinal visceral tissues, scalenes, and lumbar muscles
Techniques for facilitation of the ‘breath wave’ into the front, back, and sides, as well as into each ‘quadrant’ of the rib cage

Note: It is strongly recommended to take the Anatomy Trains in Structure & Function course before taking the SE courses. Familiarity with the Anatomy Trains lines and concepts is key to getting the most from the program.
