Relief from Head/Neck/Shoulders: Quick Release Technique
The Quick Release Technique is an amazing effective protocol that relieves headaches and neck and shoulder pain, reduces tension and stress in uptight clients, and prepares clients for deeper work. This protocol can also be used very successfully on clients with osteoporosis. The application of this protocol will initiate the normalization of the abnormal curvature of the cervical spine. The participant will learn a specific sequence to release a series of trigger points, acupressure points, as well as a modified atlas/occipital release that can be applied in as little as 15 minutes, or extended to a full hour or longer treatment. This release is a real practice builder for many massage therapists for it can be applied in almost any setting. Massage therapists who have taken this workshop have a tool to show that massage therapy can be therapeutic with as little as 15 minutes of treatment. This is a great practice builder!
Opening the Breathing Process to Release the Stress Associated with Anxiety
This course will teach massage therapists how to release the stress associated with anxiety that is locked in the breathing process. Information will be presented on how the breathing process can both fuel an anxiety attack and be used to release accumulated distress that triggers and fuels anxiety. This stress is physically locked in tissues and readily releases with specific trigger point and myofascial soft tissue therapy. The therapist will be taught specific advanced massage techniques that can reduce emotional stress in the soft tissue and diaphragms associated with breathing. These protocols will produce long term relaxation and expansion in the muscles and soft tissue that restrict breathing and increase anxiety.
