Asian Energetics – 18 hours

This course offers adjunct therapies to be used in conjunction with any hands-on techniques to complement massage sessions.

Cupping and Gua Sha

  • These two ancient Asian methods can be utilized to enhance any massage session while being gentle on the therapist’s hands. Cupping helps move stagnant energy stuck deep in the muscles while Gua Sha invigorates circulation by increasing blood flow to the surface of the skin. Both help stimulate pain relief and quicken recovery with little physical effort on the part of the therapist.

Auricular Therapy (Ear Reflexology)

  • Similar to the foot, the ear has reflex points that mirror the entire body, plus special ‘master’ points for overall well-being and stress-reduction. Students will learn the map of the ear and how to stimulate the points for enhanced, longer lasting sessions.

 

Thursdays: 5:30-9pm ~ 6 weeks, Starts May 16th ~ $350 plus $60 materials fee (cupping set, gua sha and auricular tools)

Instructor: Ashley Marie ~ 18 NCBTMB CE Units

Break for Memorial Week on 5/30/19




 

Myofacial Release – 21 hours

Oncology and Geriatric Massage – 21 hours

Massage should be adapted for medically frail people including elders and people living with cancer. Whether clients are currently undergoing cancer treatment, or have in the past, or they have health complications because of old age, massage therapists need to be comfortable with the condition, and understand what kinds of adaptations can be made.  Course will include a practice clinic with at least one client who is living with cancer or an elder.
