It is absolutely incredible how our bodies are constantly trying to correct our alignment but in doing so we end up with so many muscle imbalances leading to increased tension
and poor posture.
When the fascia and musculature of our upper body and neck region become tight, from postural strains or injuries, it can create pain and tension in our anterior, lateral or posterior neck regions as well as pain and dysfunction at our temporomandibular joints.
Please join me in exploring how to assess and treat this area using fascial techniques and exercises to bring about decreased tension, pain and dysfunction, while restoring alignment.
Peter Stuart has been a massage therapist and educator since 1993, specializing in myofascial release within patient-centred therapy, treatment of chronic pain
conditions, and transformation from the negative effects of trauma. He is the founder and lead instructor for Stuart Therapies & Seminars Inc.

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 shoulder joint, is the most flexible joint in the body. It is surrounded and influenced by over a dozen muscles which allow it the greatest ranges of motion possible of any joint of the body. When the integrity of this joint is affected by trauma, most of these muscles and their associated fascia will respond by creating excessive tensile forces to protect this area from any further harm.
Upper trapezius and levator scapula muscles when they are stressed by physical, mental and emotional trauma as well as posture can take on a seemingly solidified texture.
Join us in exploring how to assess and treat this area using fascial techniques and exercises to bring about release to the muscles and fascia of the shoulder region.

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 $150, is required to secure your place on this course.

The ear offers an exciting and precise map of the brain and can be "noninvasively" accessed for the assessment and treatment of challenging chronic conditions. These "therapy-resistant" clients often have blockages to healing which can be identified and addressed with this approach.
Learn how to use the ear for its direct pathways of healing and the personalized medicine it offers.
This course will offer you skills you can apply in your clinic the next day!
Please email for more information.
Imagine being able to find the source of the patient's pain without looking at charts or following innervation pathways, but instead being able to find it by listening to their body. Sounds impossible to learn? It is easier than you think.
The VAS is a tool that will guide the therapist directly and quickly to areas in the body that are sending an SOS signal. This allows you to use it as an assessment tool for finding the problem, but you can also measure the effectiveness of your treatment.
This take-away skill will open a doorway of endless possibilities and will be immediately applicable in your clinical practice.
