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 joints.

The Movement of Massage

Carteret Community College, 14 CE hrs. Cost $285

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 and attachment sites. Even during assessments, movement may be utilized to hone in on specific muscles as causes of pain and to enhance skill of palpation. 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.)

Many of the healing benefits of massage are derived not only from the emerging science of therapeutic techniques but also from the essential and primal power of TOUCH. The brain stem, our "reptilian" brain, is exquisitely attuned to threatening stimuli and readies the system for fight-or-flight by revving up the sympathetic nervous system. The same part of the brain is also responsive to the opposite set of stimuli such as safety, comfort, nurture, and pleasure to turn off the "alarms" of threat by stimulation of the parasympathetic system.
