It is an amazing gift to bring peace and enjoyment to a person undergoing cancer treatment or in hospice care.

You will also practice appropriate massage techniques and their applications, and learn the communication skills and professional boundaries required to build a trusted client relationship.
Your instructor brings a lighter heart to a heavy topic with his humor and entertaining teaching style, while drawing from his vast experience – over 30 years of working with hospice patients, and a lifetime of experience dealing with the many effects of cancer. You can expect to think, laugh, share, and grow personally and professionally, all while expanding your skill set to serve a deserving population.
Students should bring a massage table and bolster, and wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothes. Bringing your own lunch is optional.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage

12 Hrs
The demand for Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is rapidly growing. In fact, it's the third most requested modality in the U.S., according to Massage Magazine, with widespread practice in professional sports and plastic surgery to speed recovery time, as well as anti-aging and weight-loss. Now is the time to add it to your tool belt.
In this course, your experienced instructor will show you how to perform this gentle technique, which alleviates excess fluid and boosts the natural drainage of the lymph from body tissues. She will take you on the lymph tour, providing an overview of the lymph system, and a behind-the-scenes look at how a clinic of lymphology operates, including physician referrals and billing paperwork.
You will walk away with the ability to distinguish fat from fluid, and a full-body 50-minute MLD routine that you can add to your service menu tomorrow. You will gain the knowledge to help your clients with the proper compression garments and exercises to keep their lymph systems healthy, and keep them coming back to you.
Students should bring a massage table, hand sanitizer, sheets and linens, and wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothes.

Registration will begin at 7:45 am. Class will be from 8:00 am until 9:00 pm with breaks for lunch and dinner and breaks throughout the day.

Nearly 40 million Americans endure at least 1 migraine or similar headache episode per year, with a staggering 9 million suffering 15 or more headaches per month.  Conventional medical approaches and pain medicines carry high costs, risk of side effects, and are only partially effective.
Fortunately there are safe, effective techniques available to massage therapists which have met with outstanding success.  These inexpensive, noninvasive techniques can be applied almost anywhere, require no special equipment, and allow for wonderful relief and healing for our clients.  The hands on approach to relieving headaches often brings immediate, lasting relief, to the client.  The specific skills required are well within the reach of Licensed Massage Professionals and can be mastered in a short time. 
This workshop also identifies some of the major causes of back pain, which affects over 80% of American adults at some time.  Attendees will enhance their understanding of crucial structures related to the spine.  They will gain a deeper knowledge of some of the major pathologies which impede spinal health and the leading causes of these imbalances.  The class arms the massage therapists with a comprehensive approach to assisting clients which will include powerful hands- on techniques as well as key stretching and strengthening exercises.

Registration will begin at 7:45 am. Class will be from 8:00 am until 9:00 pm with breaks for lunch and dinner and breaks throughout the day.
