    What is Reiki? DragonFly Release - Reiki Training

    Everyone’s experience of Reiki will be different and there are many styles of Reiki being taught today, many of which bear little resemblance to the original teachings of its founder, Mikao Usui. Jeff Phillips is a fully qualified Reiki Master/Teacher, having received his training from Reiki Evolution in the UK.

    At Dragonfly Release our teachings closely follow the material developed by Taggart King, the founder of Reiki Evolution. This is a very simple, uncluttered style which is easy to follow as you take your first steps towards bringing Reiki into your life.

    We recognise that everyone learns in different ways and at a different pace. To this end initial training is undertaken at your own pace in your own home using a detailed manual and other media as study aids – provided on flash drive. As your Reiki Master/Teacher, Jeff will be available to you during this time via email, and telephone if appropriate, should you have any questions about your learning.

    You will arrive at the practical training with already knowing much of the theory behind the Usui method of Reiki. This will help ensure you gain the most from your practical training.

    The manuals and media are yours to keep so that you may refer back to them after your practical training. Following the practical training you will be invited to contact Jeff and secure your personal 21 day support package to help you establish your own daily Reiki routine within your life.

    Reiki is simple to learn and anyone can learn it. Reiki is not a religion and it is practised by people from all walks of life. On an introductory “First Degree” course you will be connected to the energy (‘attuned’) and learn how to use Reiki for your own benefit and for others. You will also learn a simple set of ‘rules to live by’ set down by Reiki’s founder Mikao Usui.

    At the end of the course you will receive a certificate of completion and then your own Reiki journey will truly begin. Like anything else you learn you will get out of Reiki what you put into it. So if you want to gain a deeper understanding you will want to begin to establish a daily routine that will incorporate Reiki into your life. Dragonfly Release can help you do this so you will not feel alone after you have completed your First Degree training.

    The Ethics of Touch: A Workshop for Health Professionals

    Date: March 2nd, 2019
    Time: 09:00 am - 01:00 pm
    Location: Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy - Halifax
    Investment: $125 plus HST ($ 143.75)
    CEUs: 2 Primary Category "A"
    Registration: Please contact ailsakeppie@gmail.com to register

    Introduction

    Curated and taught by Ailsa Keppie (BSc, RMT, MFT therapist)

    • Do you want to improve your skills around negotiating consent with clients?
    • Do you want to explore how to work safely with previously emotionally or physically traumatized clients?
    • Do you believe that self-awareness is an integral part of being a professional in the health field?
    • Do you want to share, discuss experiences, and problem solve around transference and counter-transference issues that may be present in your practice?

    If you answered yes to any of these questions, please consider signing up to attend this workshop in Halifax!

    Course Topics

    What participants will learn and experience:

    • To be aware of what our touch and our intention transmits to a client
    • To be aware and therefore more in control of our own needs and desires, and how to put these aside to really be present for our clients
    • How working with touch can serve clients, and help their healing process
    • How all human beings need touch, and how this can help a client learn to ‘feel’
    • How to set and communicate healthy and professional boundaries, and create a sense of safety for our clients to fully enter into their own process of healing.
    • How to take care of our own needs for touch, and to know when we need to take time for our own self-care
    • A method for understanding and working with the different types of touch in a more profound way, in both a giving and receiving role, and developing a method of explaining this to clients, to facilitate transformation and healing

    Considerations

    This is an experiential workshop, participants will remain clothed, and everyone will have full choice around each of the exercises presented.

    This course is approved for 2 primary CEU credit for RMT’s. A full description of the course is available upon request. The material taught falls under the scope of Professional Ethics for professionals who use touch.

    More Information:

    Working with boundaries and touch is maybe a new area for CEU courses to cover, but it is imperative for any health professional who touches their clients, to be aware of the ramifications, trauma or transference related, that may come up while either negotiating the work to be done with the client, or while the client is actually on the table. A good self awareness, and ability to be both cognizant of ourselves as therapists and of the subtle cues of the client, beyond both verbal and written consent, is helpful in negotiating healthy boundaries and a clear professional relationship in today’s highly charged society. Many unclear messages and social conditioning can mask a client’s real feelings and ability to give true consent in a setting where there is a clear power differential between therapist and client. This course offers a chance for professionals to discuss, learn about, and explore their own physical, emotional and mental responses, which in turn allows the therapist to hear and honour a client’s whole self in treatment. The polyvagal theory and our human need for touch and social engagement will also be discussed in relevance to the therapist/ client relationship.

      COURSE DESCRIPTION

      Thai Stretch massage is based on the ancient art of Thai Massage and energy healing. We combine stretching techniques from Northern Thailand and Jap Sen work from Southern Thailand along with massage foundations to achieve an optimal and effortless approach to treating pathologies.

      This 32 hour level 1 class is geared towards massage professionals who want to expand their toolbox. 

      Through demonstration and hands-on practice students will learn a 60 minute flow and be able to properly assess which postures to use according to the client. It is predominantly a hands-on course where students both give and receive the massage so they are able to experience what the client feels. Students will also have the opportunity to massage the teacher and the TA to get a better understanding as of how the techniques should be used and adapted according the recipient’s needs.

      Who would take this course?

      • Massage therapists looking to enhance their practice
      • Those interested in Eastern methods of healing
      • Those interested in energy work
      • Those who wanted to offer variety in their practice

      PREREQUISITE

      Previous experience in massage and basic knowledge of anatomy. No major health or physical restrictions.

      GOALS OF THE COURSE

      We emphasize the development of skills to help treat clients in a well-rounded way and help ease some common issues. This class will give students a new way to assess their clients and extra tools to treat. In order to identify and assess, students must grasp the basic theories of anatomy and combine them with the Eastern methods of energy and movement techniques.

      This class is mainly hands on.

      OBJECTIVES

      By completing the course in good standing you’ll be able to:

      • Perform a 60 min flow with comfort and security
      • Learn a number of postures
      • Assess your client and decide which postures are best
      • Have a basic understanding of sen lines and marma points

      This course of instruction is offered through Dragonfly Release.

      Having listened to the concerns of students and new RMTs over the past several years, we have spent considerable time pulling together, what we feel, is a focused product enabling attendees to prepare for entrepreneurship.

      Delivering a mix of interactive and lecture-based material, this course is aimed at both existing RMT’s with experience in the field of massage therapy, but also new graduates yet to gain that experience! Consequently, attendees will be able to tailor their outcomes to their own specific needs and goals.

      Not only does this course review your options, it also tackles stock requirements, accountancy, billing, name registration and marketing together with forward planning tools, which will aid YOU in your preparation for entrepreneurship.

      The course provides not only the usual high standard of literature expected from a Dragonfly course, but additional BONUS MATERIAL which, we feel, will provide the new entrepreneur with a head start in their new business venture.

      A non-refundable deposit of $201.25 is required to secure your place on this course.

      Please contact Dragonfly Release to have your invoice issued to you for payment.

      Description

      Advanced Preparation is required. Please visit the website for more details.

      The course material and hands-on sessions will focus on cranial base dysfunctions, the masticatory system-hard palate, mandible and temporomandibular joint; whole body evaluation; and the energy cyst with regional unwinding. An introduction to SomatoEmotional Release will also be presented.

      CranioSacral Therapy 2 (CS2) greatly expands the work learned in CS1 and completes the bio-mechanical CranioSacral Therapy training. The hands-on sessions will focus on cranial base dysfunctions, the masticatory system-hard palate, mandible and temporomandibular joint, whole body evaluation and the energy cyst with regional unwinding.

      Course Highlights

      • Cranial-base dysfunctions as assessed and treated by Dr. William Sutherland, the originator of Cranial Osteopathy. These strain patterns can produce profound full-body effects.
      • Review of the 10-Step Protocol.
      • Adverse strain patterns of the face, to include: nasal bones, zygomatic bones, maxillae, vomer, and palatines. Stressful patterns of the bony face can cause a myriad of issues related to the face, throat, intracranial membrane system, the entire body and physiological systems.
      • Arcing is an assessment technique used to locate primary strain (lesion) patterns. Advanced CS practitioners use this assessment technique most often for its accuracy and speed.
      • Regional Positional Tissue Release is used to locate body positions that are most helpful in releasing lesion patterns. It is an elegant and efficient treatment process.
      • Facilitated Segments are spinal cord areas that can cause debilitating issues. Using a process to locate these segments and then treat them is essential to a CS protocol, especially when working with clients experiencing chronic issues.
      • Fascial Glide is an assessment technique used to precisely locate fascial lesions. If more than one lesion is found then a process of determining the primary lesion will be used.
      • Discussion of adaptation of CS technique for children.
      • How to effectively integrate techniques from CS1 and CS2 into treatment sessions of any length, or in combination with other modalities.
      • Discussion of SomatoEmotional Release.
