Thai Herbal Compresses

Friday November 2 from 9-4:30
“The best CE class I’ve ever taken!” said more than one participant. Enjoy the day exploring the healing qualities of herbs used in traditional Thai medicine. See, smell, taste, and touch the herbs as we read and hear about their medicinal properties while cutting and chopping fresh and dried herbs to make our own cloth poultice/compress. Then steam and apply the warm compress during a short massage at the end of the day. The herbal compresses are a great add-on to Swedish massage (a bit like hot stone because of their heat retention, but softer and more pliable in your hand). They are also a bit like aromatherapy (because of their medicinal qualities, but with the added benefit of warm steam). You get the added benefit of increasing your knowledge of herbs to use in your personal daily life to support healthy living (cooking, topically, making teas, etc).

NOTE: the focus of this class is on learning about and making the compresses; it does not include the teaching of specific thai massage movements, but is instead geared to adding herbal compresses to whatever modality you already practice. Class includes a comprehensive textbook and one pack you make and use in class to take home and use again. Additional packs and loose herbs may be available for purchase.
7CEs, $175


Positional Release Therapy

November 8, 2018 10am-7pm
(Strain-Counter Strain) Ease and harmony are what the body seeks to rediscover with Positional Release Therapy, a gentle osteopathically-based system for working the body’s self-corrective reflexes. PRT does not use forceful manipulation. It is gentle, non-intrusive and safe, even in cases of acute injury and chronic pain. The guiding principle is to work with the body to activate self-corrective reflexes, instead of trying to stretch a muscle that is tight. The practitioner will compress the shortened muscle, giving the body direct feedback to the proprioceptive reporting station so it will not continue to report strain. It puts the spasmodic muscle to sleep. The position of ease is held for 90 seconds. The false strain message is stopped as well as the irritation and pain. The released shortened muscle is slowly returned to neutral so as not to restart the dysfunction. Upon completion of a session the client receives home exercises to do to further facilitate the neuro-muscular re-education process that began in the session.

Participants receives an illustrated manual containing all the anatomical regions addressed in the workshop.
