You can expect to think, laugh, share, and grow personally and professionally, all while expanding your skill set to serve a deserving population.

Lymphatic Drainage

Rick Vrenios

Sat Feb 16
8:00 am
$247.00
12 Hrs
An increasingly popular modality, Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is an ultra-light touch therapy that is both deeply relaxing and beneficial to the body, reducing waste buildup in the lymph and promoting a healthy immune system. For therapists, it offers the bonus of being gentle on the hands while producing real, often visible, results, particularly in clients who are prone to swelling, recovering from surgery, or undergoing cancer treatment.
This course will teach you the MLD technique developed by Drs. Emil Vodder and Bruno Chikly.
You will explore the lymphatic system's anatomy and physiology, and learn how and where to apply the correct pressure and rhythm to stimulate its movement. After class, you'll have the skills to immediately put this technique into practice in your spa or clinic. Plus, you'll learn quick at-home exercises that you can use for self-care, and teach your clients how to keep their lymph systems healthy between continued sessions with you.
Students should bring a massage table, bolster, top and bottom sheets, massage oil, and a pen and paper for taking notes.

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.

Chronic pain is a pain in the neck (pun intended), causing frustration for both the client and the massage therapist trying to resolve it. Massage and stretching, while beneficial, typically offer temporary relief. Muscle testing, on the other hand, can provide instant, lasting results.
In this class, you will learn how to identify and treat muscle weakness in the neck and back to improve strength, range of motion and daily function. This technique addresses the source of the pain by finding the muscle that's not doing its job and correcting it.
Your instructor will open your eyes to the science behind the muscular system. He'll not only teach you a real, effective, long-term solution to muscle pain, he'll also explain how to market it to bring in more clients.
Students only need to bring a table.

Registration will begin at 8:45 am. Class will be from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm with breaks each day
