Want to have fun while getting your CEUs? Spend two days with Pete Whitridge exploring deep tissue structures of the upper body that are at the root of most client pain.

  • Refine your touching skills and gain new confidence
  • Deepen your knowledge of anatomy and fascial structures
  • Teach your clients to work with you during therapy
  • Eliminate chronic pain by working below the client’s pain threshold
  • Slow down, focus your attention, be more effective with less effort

This workshop explores the Responsibility Center, focusing on the scapulae, shoulder girdle, brachial plexus, cervical ligaments, and mandible. This is a multi-disciplinary approach to chronic pain. We will use orthopedic assessments, passive and active fascial stretching, hydrotherapies, as well as myofascial and muscle energy techniques to help idenitfy and eliminate pain and dysfunction. You will have the opportunity to dialogue about your own specific client needs and learn self-care strategies to help clients maintain pain free movement. We will review current findings from the Fascia Research Congress while exploring the unique nature of the connective tissues!

This class is designed to help you pinpoint problem areas quickly, devise strategies to eliminate pain, and work collaboratively with your client. You will receive lots of bodywork, learn new ways to handle clients with chronic pain, and reconnect with fellow massage therapists. You will leave this class with new skills and confidence in helping your clients be pain free!
