Instructor Rick Vrenios

$247.00
16 Hrs

Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) is a recognized and requested form of “medical massage”, and a highly effective way to alleviate chronic pain, accelerate post-injury healing, and enhance athletic performance. This course teaches you how to properly perform this therapeutic trigger point therapy for long-lasting results without straining your own body.

The style of NMT taught in this course is based on the research of Drs. Janet Travell and David Simons. You will explore how trigger points are formed in the muscle tissue and their wide-reaching impact on the nervous system. During the live demonstration, which is projected on-screen for easy viewing, you’ll see first-hand how to identify and resolve these triggers. After extensive hands-on practice, you’ll have the skills to use NMT on common lower back pain patterns, and the knowledge to apply it to other areas of the body.

You will walk away from this class a better partner for the body, knowing how to trigger its internal instincts to help it resolve itself.


Students should bring a massage table, bolster, sheets, massage lotion or oil, and a pen and paper for taking notes.

Registration will begin at 8:45am each day. Class on each day starts at 9:00am and ends at 5:00pm with one hour for lunch (on your own) and two scheduled breaks.

Instructor Joellie Irwin

$247.00

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.

Muscle Testing & Treatment for Cervical and Spinal Weakness

Instructor J.Nicholas Tortoriello

$247.00
16 Hrs

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 8:45am each day. Class on each day starts at 9:00am and ends at 5:00pm with one hour for lunch (on your own) and two scheduled breaks.

Jobs can wreak havoc on people’s bodies. As massage therapists, we know this all too well. This course explores therapies to give the body a much-needed break, while making you more marketable and proficient in your massage work.    

The class starts with yoga and self-care techniques, teaching stretches and exercises that improve stamina, focus the mind, and help prevent injury from overuse. Students can use these exercises and knowledge for their own benefit, and also share them with clients to build relationships.

You will also learn how to use the chair massage as a tool to market yourself and build a client base. After an in-depth anatomy review by your instructor, your work will have more precision and purpose, allowing you to deliver chair massages with results in as little as 10 minutes. She will explain other valuable marketing tactics as well, like identifying your “niche client” and making the best use of email lists.  

After this class, you will, as the instructor says, “walk away feeling like you have eyes on your fingertips.” You will gain a better understanding of the kinesiology of the body, so your massage work can be more precise and effective, leading to more clients.

Registration will begin at 8:45am each day. Class on each day starts at 9:00am and ends at 5:00pm with one hour for lunch (on your own) and two scheduled breaks.

There is no better time for a woman to get a massage than when she’s pregnant. In this course, you will learn how to support expectant mothers through massage as they change both physically and emotionally.

When massaging a pregnant client, it’s important to be able to assess her condition and adapt the massage accordingly. Some areas could be off limits, while some may require a tender touch. This course will give you the knowledge, hands-on skills and confidence to safely and effectively alleviate her stressed joints and muscles.

You will explore the amazing changes that the body experiences throughout a pregnancy, discover the best position for her at each trimester, and learn how massage can help loosen and prepare the body for a smooth labor and delivery. The instructor also ensures that you leave the class knowing how to market your new knowledge and skills.

Students should bring a massage table, a set of sheets, 3-4 pillows, a breast drape and lotion.

Registration will begin at 8:45am each day. Class on each day starts at 9:00am and ends at 5:00pm with one hour for lunch (on your own) and two scheduled breaks.

Therapeutic Reflexology - The Reflexes of the Hand

Instructor Rick Vrenios

$247.00
16 Hrs

Reflexology is a perfect supplemental offering for your clients, and a great alternative therapy to break up the heavy physical demands that massage places on your body throughout the day. So much more than a luxury hand massage, it’s been proven to have a positive impact on the entire body.

In this course, you will learn a system of reflexology that was co-developed by your instructor, Rick Vrenios, and blends subtle energy therapy with hands-on touch therapies. He will explain the science behind this intriguing and in-demand modality, and break down the mechanics into 18 easy-to-remember segments of the hand and their corresponding body areas or processes. By the end of the class, you will know how to perform an hour-long reflexology session, customize the treatment to address certain conditions, and even use it on your own hands for self-care.

The advanced reflexology skills taught in this course are sought-after in many spas and clinics, and students can add it to their menu of services the very next day.

Students should bring a pen and paper for taking notes. A massage table or portable reflexology recliner is optional but strongly recommended.

Registration will begin at 8:45am each day. Class on each day starts at 9:00am and ends at 5:00pm with one hour for lunch (on your own) and two scheduled breaks.

Jobs can wreak havoc on people’s bodies. As massage therapists, we know this all too well. This course explores therapies to give the body a much-needed break, while making you more marketable and proficient in your massage work.    

The class starts with yoga and self-care techniques, teaching stretches and exercises that improve stamina, focus the mind, and help prevent injury from overuse. Students can use these exercises and knowledge for their own benefit, and also share them with clients to build relationships.

You will also learn how to use the chair massage as a tool to market yourself and build a client base. After an in-depth anatomy review by your instructor, your work will have more precision and purpose, allowing you to deliver chair massages with results in as little as 10 minutes. She will explain other valuable marketing tactics as well, like identifying your “niche client” and making the best use of email lists.  

After this class, you will, as the instructor says, “walk away feeling like you have eyes on your fingertips.” You will gain a better understanding of the kinesiology of the body, so your massage work can be more precise and effective, leading to more clients.
