Demystifying Upper Back & Neck Problems
$139.00 (1 section available)
One of the most common situations that the licensed massage therapist confronts in their practice would be the client's parascapular discomfort. Often, these problems do not respond well to allopathic medicine, but will easily respond to correctly applied massage, deep muscle therapy, and myofascial lengthening. In this 8-hour class, students will learn how to identify and resolve some of their clients' difficulties, including headaches, stiff neck, frozen shoulder, and parascapular pain.

Energy of Reflexology
$199.00 (1 section available)
Can you imagine how much more effective you can be with your reflexology sessions by adding the power of energy? Enhance your understanding of energy concepts relating to the body's chakras, meridians, and potent acupoints on the feet, hands and ears. You'll learn how to work them effectively to bring about greater change in your clients' health. We'll explore the effects of chakra and meridian work through discussion and hands-on sessions. Prerequisites: 12 hours of reflexology class time or self-study. Students should bring a set of sheets, bolster if available and massage lotion to class.

Ethics: Massage Professionalism
$69.00 (1 section available)
The way in which you conduct your massage practice can shape the experience of your clients far more than the selection of hands-on techniques used in a session. Students will reflect on their own professionalism and learn how to create a safe and consistent therapeutic environment. This workshop will cover a variety of topics including transference, confidentiality, consent and boundaries of your practice; the prevailing laws, rules and codes of ethics for the practice of massage and bodywork therapy; discussion of ethical dilemmas; communication with your clients and fellow practitioners; and the dynamics of the client/therapist relationship. This workshop will fulfill the ethics requirement for renewal of the Pennsylvania state massage license. In this class designed for the professional massage therapist, students will earn 4 continuing education hours towards their Pennsylvania licensing requirements.

Passive Stretching Techniques
$139.00 (1 section available)
