The ability to offer good specific treatment to areas of the body can distinguish a therapist. When a client has the need to have a condition addressed, a thorough knowledge of the anatomical structure and contractile tissue associated can be instrumental in helping that person. How much do you remember from massage school or from classes you have taken since? If one is not reviewing on a regular basis what we once knew can slowly or even quickly fade away.

Getting Specific is a series of one or two day workshop experiences that focus on specific areas of the body. Anatomical structures, synergistic muscle groups, and effective techniques associated with the particular area of the body will be covered. Use of audio-visual aids, lecture and hands-on palpation will help the participant get clearer on what they are touching. Demonstrations will address techniques that are useful for the area presented. Lots of hands on time will be available with the opportunity to interact with the instructor will be offered. This will be a great way to review and build your skills.

The first offering in this series of workshops will be focused on the head and neck. Get clear on the occiput, cervical processes and the scapula attachments. Understand the working of the vertebrae and joint structures. Learn specific treatment techniques for the scalenes, prevertebrals, suboccipitals, and paraspinals. Play with adding movement to your treatment techniques and enjoy becoming more comfortable working with the head and neck.

Please bring sheets, lube, pillow and a participatory interest.

Note: This workshop can be combined with Getting Specific – The Shoulder (March 12, 2017)
