    Course Description

    This Acupressure and Meridian Massage course is designed to teach students the basics concepts and techniques used in acupressure and meridian massage. This course focuses on identifying and treating musculoskeletal conditions using acupressure and meridian massage principles and techniques.

    The ancient practitioners of China spent thousands of years perfecting their system of massage. While they use the terms acupoint, meridian and qi, in this course, we update the language and discuss the concepts of trigger points, neurovascular nodes, myofascial meridians and how mechanical force is transmitted through predictable pathways in the body.

    Students will learn the principles of how acupressure works and what it can be used for, including cautions and contraindications.

    With a modern understanding of acupoints, meridians, and “energy,” we then move to section two, where students learn seventeen different manual techniques to treat the body's connective tissues. The techniques are broken down step by step, detailing body mechanics, hand positions, and areas of application.

    In sections three and four, students will learn how to locate the exact locations of over 100 of the most commonly used acupoints in the body and how to apply the appropriate techniques learned in the previous section to each of the points.

    Section five focuses on assessing and treating common musculoskeletal disorders such as shoulder pain, neck pain, low back pain, and headaches using a variety of techniques and acupoints.

    In section six, the focus moves to homecare. Homecare is an essential part of any form of massage therapy. In this section, students will learn simple stretch exercises, basic strengthening exercises and postural correction exercises.

    Description

    INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE is a 4000-year-old therapy that treats the person on 3 levels; the physical, mental, and subtle. The modality is a combination of the traditional Indian head massage moves originating from India along with non-traditional moves given to the face, neck, upper arms, and shoulders. An Ayurvedic element of the work is done on the three higher Chakras (Visuddha, Ajna, and Sahasrara), which can help to assist the body's energies to rebalance. The delivery of a hair and scalp conditioning oil at the end of the treatment is completely optional.

    This unique and ancient massage is done while a client sits fully clothed in a comfortable low back chair. It is the most versatile of all massages out there. Simply said, this massage can be done anywhere you can set up a chair for your client to sit on and receive this treatment. 

    In the three-day intensive course, Lee-ann Harder, (tutor of this therapy for 12 years) will provide a comprehensive grounding in the theoretical basis and practical application of Indian Head Massage. Students will be able to use the technique as a principal or complementary part of their professional practice.

    • The course includes three days of practical instruction and a very detailed workbook with pictures.
    • An attendance certificate will be awarded at the end of the course, which allows students who qualify to collect continuing credits.
    • For the optional additional certification you must complete the practical homework and case studies.
    • Do be sure you have people to practise on daily while attending the course and immediately after.
    • This treatment has a small energy-balancing component in addition to the hands on physical application.

    Course Description

    In the world of manual medicine, few tissues get more attention than fascia these days. And that is for a good reason. Since we first started exploring human anatomy as a science, this wonder tissue has been discarded as little more than wrapping around the tissues. Now, we are beginning to see it for what it is: A tensional force transmission tissue. A tissue of communication. A system of defence. A feeling, a living system, and so much more.

    In this course, we talk all things fascia. We go through all of the main characteristics, functions and dysfunctions of fascia. We dig into the anatomy and see how even the smallest part of this system communicates, affects and interacts with the whole. Understanding the myofascial system gives us a much deeper appreciation of how everything is connected.

    This course is all about the theory; as Thomas Myers says, "It is not our job to promote one technique over another, nor even to posit a mechanism for how any technique works. All therapeutic interventions, of whatever sort, are a conversation between two intelligent systems." We will discuss different forms of therapies that are affecting change in the myofascial system, but the focus is understanding the tissue as a whole.

    Course Description

    Cupping has been gaining popularity rapidly, particularly after the last Olympics when several athletes were seen with the classic red circle marks of cupping. Celebrities are on the band wagon as well. All of this is for good reason. The health benefits to be had from the regular use of myofascial cupping therapy are vast.

    This course is designed to introduce the concept of myofascial cupping and or build upon existing skills using myofascial cups. The course begins with a brief history of cupping, then goes through anatomy and physiology, cautions and contraindication, assessment and treatment of each region of the body.

    The information presented comes from the most up to date research in the field of fascia, cupping and pain management.

    As an added bonus I will also be showing students how to use cups for self care, as well as essential oils and ointments that compliment cupping perfectly.
