    Acupressure Massage for Relaxation and Health

    An online course, developed by Dr. Diana Li, President and Founder of the Canadian College of Acupuncture and TCM, teaches an hour long acupressure massage technique that can be used to help treat stress, anxiety, depression, TMJ headaches and more.

    • This is an online massage course and, as a massage therapist, it's important to maintain a close watch on growing trends and effective techniques in order to remain successful.
    • With this course, your members will learn how to perform and practice an acupressure massage and learn some of the foundational theory in which the massage was derived. 
    • Having this type of massage available can greatly improve the quality of life for your patients and gives your practitioners new options to offer their clientele.
    • This hour-long massage technique has been carefully refined, successfully practiced, and generously taught by Dr. Diana Tong Li and Dr. Franklyn Shi Chen for more than 30 years. 
    • By identifying and gently massaging acupressure points all over the body, practitioners of this technique help patients dealing with stress, anxiety, depression, TMJ headaches, and more.
    • Combining the best aspects of massage and the best aspects of acupuncture, this treatment gives massage therapists new options to help patients in any environment. And, since there are no needles involved, you don't need a background in traditional Chinese medicine to do it.

    This is college-level content, comprehensive instruction, and a world-class online education module. It's an in-depth exploration of the technique, designed to give massage therapists practical skills to provide the highest standard of care.

    Course Site: Structural Essentials: Arches and Legs

    The Structural Essential series is a set of intensive soft-tissue technique courses divided into functional regions. Combining movement and manual techniques for the most efficient and long-lasting results, and using the latest research on the interaction between skeleton, muscles, joints, and fascial proprioceptors, this series of workshops will take you to a new level in therapy.

    Designed with the busy manual therapist in mind, each Structural Essentials event gives you a new understanding of the relevant area. The content will outline how the structural and functional anatomy relates to many common issues as well as to the rest of the body. Based on many new and established approaches this series will give you the skills in palpation, BodyReading and functional analysis needed for the modern multidisciplinary therapist.

    Arches and the Legs – Underpinning all of our structure is the foot’s interaction with the ground, imbalances here clearly have consequences further up the body. Effective arch balance can be essential for easy and graceful walking, pelvic stability, low back efficiency and even head and neck support. The feet and legs are literally the foundation for the rest of our structure and this workshop will analyze the bones of the feet and how they conspire to help or hinder the arches. We will look at the forces coming from the leg muscles and create strategies to help maintain better mechanics by dealing with myofascial restrictions and imbalances.

    The Knee and Thigh – A complicated hinge in the middle of two long levers is perhaps not the best of designs – but this “elbow designed by committee” is an excellent work of engineering. The knee joint mediates forces coming down from the hip and up from the foot and still allows a wide range of movement in all but the frontal plane.


    • How to differentiate your analysis of the foot and legs from the rest of the mechanical chain, giving an accurate reading of their skeletal relationships
    • How to assess and then provide good foot and leg support through the three (or four) arches of the foot
    • How the arches act in walking and standing and their relationship to the pelvis and the AT lines
    • How to balance the support the arches receive from the long muscles of the calf
    • Effective strategies to unwind rotational compensations in the foot, the tibia-fibula complex and the knee.
    • Learn how the structures of the knee and thigh co-operate to achieve this and learn to recognize some of the structural dysfunctions that can occur.
    • BodyRead the various imbalances which can occur
    • Learn to balance the common rotational movements of the knee

    Note: It is strongly recommended to take the Anatomy Trains in Structure & Function course before taking the SE courses. Familiarity with the Anatomy Trains lines and concepts is key to getting the most from the program)

    Begin your journey with Anatomy Trains in Structure & Function. Continue your journey with The Structural Essentials Series. These regional intensives combine global postural assessment with movement and manual techniques for efficient and long-lasting results.  Each of the 6 Structural Essentials classes is based on consistent functional movement concepts, applied to everyday movement and our new understanding of myofascial efficiency and whole body response. Important research findings are integrated into the presentations, along with cutting-edge applications that can be used for clients on your next day in clinic.

    Designed for the busy manual therapist, these workshops are most easily absorbed in the order outlined below but you can do them in any order as time permits.

    1. Arches and the Legs – 3 days
    2. Fans of the Hip – 2 ½ days

    Course Information

    This course is available on several dates in Canada. Please visit the site for more detail -> https://www.rhythmmassage.com.au/manual-lymphatic-drainage/

    Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a highly specialised technique that can be used to treat many injuries and pathologies. It can be performed as a preventative technique that bolsters our bodies' ability to rejuvenate and resist all types of stress.

    MLD not only stimulates the vital functions of the skin, tissues and internal organs, but also serves to eliminate cellular waste and stimulate the parasympathetic relaxation response inhibiting muscle tonus and pain.

    It provides an excellent tool for massage therapists when regular massage is contraindicated.

    This unique training course covers the many dimensions of Manual Lymphatic Drainage:

    • All areas of the body will be reviewed and students will be provided with an understanding of the lymphatic system and the implications and complications that are associated with MLD
    • Illustration for students from a clinical perspective on how to achieve complete evacuation of lymph nodes and thus achieve complete drainage to specific areas
    • Review of current research in the area and the efficacy of MLD within this research
    • Demonstration of exact area specific sequences including amount of pressure applied and examination of "0 pressure" points within these

    By the end of this two day certification course, you’ll possess the ability to understand and perform a full lymphatic drainage with confidence and skill.
