Continuing Education 2014

  Yoga for Self Preservation
  September 5, 2014 (Friday 9:00 am - 6:00 pm)
  8 CEUs = $125 ($150 after August 4). Taught by Matthew Corrigan
   
  This course teaches the foundations necessary for building a personal yoga practice specifically for massage therapists.  To provide the best care for your clients/patients, it is critical to maintain your own body to be open and receptive to each person coming into your practice.  the physical demands of a busy practice can wreak havoc on one's body, and without the knowledge and the means to counteract those physical demands, your career is destined to be a short one.  A fundamental yoga/stretching practice is an indispensable tool for keeping your body injury free and increasing your career longevity.  This course uses the instructor's personal career experience as a Massage Therapist and as a Yoga Teacher, as well as incorporating your individual needs, possibilities and limitations to initiate the foundation of a healthy yoga practice for self-care.  The course provides visual references, verbal cues, personal analogies and a combination of group and individual instruction.  This is a hands-on course, so come prepared to sweat a little.  You will leave with an on-the-job stretch routine and a 30-40 minute home yoga practice incorporating breath/body links, fluid vinyasas, and restorative poses.

* Please bring water, a towel and a mat.  Yoga mats can be provided on request.

  Intro to Trager
  September 13, 2014 (Saturday 9:30 am - 6:00 pm).
  8 CEUs = $145 ($165 after August 12). Taught by Judy Rose Seibert. www.tragerbyjudyrose.com
   
 

How could your work with clients be easier and more playful?  Come learn the relaxing, rhythmic movements of the Trager® Approach that invite both you and your client to go deeper into relaxation during the session.  

During this workshop you will: 

  • learn the principles of the Trager® Approach; 
  • explore hands-on Trager tablework, supine and prone, using body mechanics that create the greatest ease for the practitioner; 
  • discover Trager Mentastics® - gentle playful movements which increase body awareness, and explore comfortable movement. You will feel more relaxed and comfortable in your own body as the workshop progresses!
  • have fun!

Trager is an experiential approach to movement education and mind/body integration.  It uses both tablework and self-directed movement exploration to influence the unconscious mind.  Trager uses the natural rhythms of the body's weight and structure to help rediscover ease, comfort, freedom from restriction and fluidity of function.

During the tablework portion of a Trager session, each part of the body gets gently rocked like a baby.  These movements stay within what feels safe and pleasant for the client, enabling the mind to let go of habitual muscle holding patterns, resulting in long-lasting change.  When you give a session, you are also receiving the rocking movements yourself! Body mechanics for the practitioner are an integral and valuable part of this class - you will learn to work with greater ease and alignment.

 ** Please bring sheets and wear loose, comfortable clothing (jeans and tight spandex are not recommended).

   
  Please call (410) 243-4688 to register by phone, or use the Pay Now button to register online through PayPal (please note: you do not need a PayPal account or log in to pay using this option).  Please read the Refund / Cancellation Policy at the bottom of this page before registering.

  24 CEUs = $450 ($495 after May 21st).  Taught by Claire Marie Miller.  http://www.nurturingthemother.com
   
  Students will learn cautions and contraindications for pregnancy and postpartum massage, and will learn to give a labor massage and labor support.  Students are instructed in newborn and infant massage as well.  Students will be guided to teach parents how to massage their newborn baby.

The Nurturing the Mother® Certification 24 CEU seminar includes lecture, massage demonstration, and hands-on practicals.  Students will also get to practice on a pregnant volunteer, following the Nurturing the Mother manual written by Claire Marie Miller.

The lecture discusses pregnancy-related contraindications such as pre-term labor, pre-eclampsia, and DVT's.  Massage and support is also discussed in correspondence to the various stages of labor.  The books Mother Massage by Elaine Stillerman, Massage During Pregnancy by Better Waters, Natural Childbirth the Eastern Way by Wataru Ohashi, and Childbirth Wisdom by Judith Goldsmith are referenced.  Finally, basic protocols for a newborn massage are addressed, from Baby's First Massage, Loving Your Newborn by Teresa Kirkpatrick Ramsey.

Claire Marie Miller's teaching method is both warm and frank - which has created lifelong followers of her courses and continued education.  Claire Marie Miller, NCBTMB provider #6417-00, became inspired to work with women throughout their pregnancies when she received massages during her pregnancies, starting with her first child in 1981. Claire worked alongside a midwife in California from 1983-1987, supporting her clients and attending home births.  To this day, Claire brings her personal story and interconnected philosophy to all of her courses.

Claire has been in healthcare since 1972, massage therapy since 1979, and is one of the original NCBTMB providers.  Claire's Nurturing the Mother® program has been a certification since 1990.
