Albany, NY 12211

Presenter: George Russell

CEH’s: 12

Class Description:
If you want a body part to feel and move better, make sure it can glide and/or rotate.To me, the smooth, easy action of restoring glide to joints is more important than end range of motion work. It’s also less work, and less frustrating, since you’re not pressing into the client’s passive or active resistance. Gliding mobilization is often preferable to the abrupt chiropractic adjustment because it can be done while the client is in a state of conscious ease and pleasure.

Rotation is a pure glide motion. So glide and rotation are always linked: the one helps the other.

In this class, you’ll learn easy, gentle methods for improving glide and rotation. You’ll also learn the surprising places that most rotation of the body come from, and how to improve ease and motion at the knee, ribcage, and many more traditional sites of pain complaint.

This is a hands-on class. Bring your table, lubricant, a pillowcase, paper and pen, and dress in comfortable clothes in which you feel comfortable being worked on and seen.

Critical Myofascial Strategies; The Lower Extremities-Albany @ TBD

When: Friday and Saturday, November 6-7, 2020
Time: 9-5:30
Where: TBD, In the Albany area
CEH’s: 15

Description:

“Think globally act locally” is as apropos in bodywork as in politics.  Myofascial Strategies are local, soft tissue interventions informed by an understanding of that body’s global structure. In this course, functional, visual, and palpatory assessments are demonstrated and practiced, and a framework of key relationships of body parts is provided. (eg: hip rotation to arch structure in the feet).  Numerous, novel myofascial techniques are demonstrated and practiced, often with a client-active component.  Beyond prone and supine, sidelying, and seated and methods are offered, with an eye to percolate new thinking as to how myofascial work can be applied and received.  Additionally, various stretches and exercises, designed to augment the myofascial work, will be outlined for “homework” for the proactive client.

Massage tables are available on site, please bring your own sheets and lotion.


PRESENTER: Richard Condon, LMT

Richard Condon has been an LMT for 17 years and a certified Rolfer for 7. He has studied structural and visceral work, and taken a week-long cadaver dissection
class. In addition to private practice Richard has worked for over 7 years with an Osteopathic doctor in Manhattan. Always intrigued by structural asymmetries, their
causes, consequences and corrections, Richard approaches bodywork from a biomechanical perspective.

Class Description:
So many people have neck pain. It’s great to massage the muscles at the back of the neck, but where is the problem coming from? We’ll look at the neck and its neighbors, learn techniques to open and integrate the neck, and address major neck dysfunctions and how we can help with them. We’ll also pay attention to the nervous system and the pelvis, which play a big role in neck pain. This is a hand-on class, so come in clothing that allows your body to be observed and that you can work and be worked on while wearing.

This is a hands-on class. Please bring your table, lubricant, a pillowcase, paper and pen, and dress in comfortable clothes in which you feel comfortable being worked on and seen.

Class Description:
Introducing the neck as a 3-dimensional volume, connected to and inseparable from its neighbors! After this class you will see the neck as a three-dimensional structure, and perceive the neck as including muscles, joints, ligaments and nerves, and as continuous with the skull and ribcage/shoulder girdle. You will learn an order of treatment from fascial release, through muscle and joint work to activation of movement patterns. The ultimate goal of the treatment you’ll learn is to integrate physical changes with nervous system learning.

This is a hands-on class. Please bring your table, lubricant, a pillowcase, paper and pen, and dress in comfortable clothes in which you feel comfortable being worked on and seen.
