    Gua Sha Level 1/2

    Gua Sha therapy is traditionally a modality used by practitioners of Chinese medicine. It is used to clear blockages of  ‘chi’ in specific energy pathways of the body. Guasha is becoming more mainstream in the past few years and the tools and practices are included in many types of healing treatments. This course will be dealing with the practical applications of guasha as myofascial work, and how to integrate guasha into a massage treatment. 

    Guasha therapy is especially effective at treating fascial adhesions which include things like Dupeytran’s contracture, carpal tunnel syndrome, IT band syndrome, and plantar fasciitis, as well as common ailments such as frozen shoulder, headaches, and low back pain. It can also be helpful in treating types of inflammatory conditions, where fluid is getting stuck in certain areas of the body. The advanced course also deals with TMJ, headaches, and treatment of the face for various conditions and general health and drainage. 

    Tools and oil will be included in the price of the course. Both courses have been approved for 3 primary CEUs each by MTANS, CMTO and in New Brunswick. Additional tools are available for purchase separately also.

    Presenters: Ailsa Keppie BSc Hons in Physiology, RMT and MFR practitioner

    Ailsa has studied with John F Barnes (10 courses) and has also been mentored by Peter Stuart RMT, MFR therapist for the past decade. She uses myofascial release as her main mode of treatment in her practice in Halifax, NS. Ailsa has also worked with and been monitored by Dr. Fronie Leroy, OMD from 2013-2015 during which time she devel pooped the Guasha Level 1 and 2 course with Dr. Leroy.

    CS2: CranioSacral Therapy II

    Investment:

    $1,029.25 (USD)

    CEUs: Primary Category A

    More Information:

    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.

    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.
