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.

This class will focus on the shoulder. The shoulder functionally begins superiorly at the occiput and mastoid process of the skull and inferiorly at the ilium and sacrum. It is anchored in the axial skeleton and ends in the radius and ulna. In this workshop we will explore the major components of this wonderfully moveable part of the body. Specific focus on the shoulder girdle, rotator cuff, and scapula attachments including techniques to treat these areas will be shared. We will do sideline work as well as prone and supine. Come join and play with this important region of the body.

Please bring sheets, lube, 2-3 pillows and a participatory interest 

Note: This workshop can be combined with Getting Specific – Head and Neck (March 11, 2017)
