Joints: Pain Reduction for Osteoarthritis
Saturday, April 27, 8:30AM-5:45PM 
Johnston Community College, Smithfield, NC,  8 CE hrs.

Taut Band Therapy can help you to provide greater reduction of pain, increases in range of motion, and improved functional abilities for your patients with osteoarthritis. Injury, inflammation, and pain within the joint capsule often provoke hypertonic conditions in the muscles that provide stability and movement for that joint. Although secondary in cause, these muscular problems often become “primary” in the generation of pain and associated disability. Studies of joints and strategies for pain reduction will include shoulder, hip and knee; treatment and hands-on sessions will focus on hip and shoulder joints.

Pressing harder is no longer your only option! Your Trigger Point practice can be both gentler and more effective when movement is well integrated with applications of pressure. Rocking, passive ranges of motion and specialized regional movements can become a vital part of your strategy to lengthen taut bands and resolve the pain of their associated trigger points. Movement my also be utilized during assessments to identify specific muscles as causes of pain. CCC Register Here

The Healing Power of Presence, Comfort & Pleasure

Sat, June 22 - Sunday, June 23, Day 1 8:30AM-5:45PM; Day 2 8:30AM-3:45PM

Durham, NC, 14 CE hrs. (corrected from 16CE to 14CE hrs.)

Each of us has the power to transform a raging, threatened, and overstimulated nervous system – prepared to run away or fight – into a restive, receptive, and peaceful neural state. New research reveals the potency, not to mention the necessity, of providing stimulus to the vagal nerve (the parasympathetic nervous system) in order to quell the many threats posed by the constant bombardment of the sympathetic system.

Although designed to respond to and protect us from external dangers, when the sympathetic system is overstimulated, it can compromise that which it is designed to protect. It threatens both body and mind with floods of adrenaline and cortisol, constant inflammation, perpetual anxiety, and a terrible lack of nurture and peace.

We have our caring and nurturing, our voices, and the amazing power of touch to stimulate the entire parasympathetic system. There is nothing more powerful than abiding in – and evoking in others – a deep state of presence. Nurture and comfort support openness and unfolding. Pleasure, yes simple, safe pleasure may be the most potent antidote to stress.

This workshop is not about learning new techniques, it is about exploring your depth of caring. It might not help you to be a more proficient massage therapist, but it will, hopefully, assist your journey toward being a better healer.
