Periodized Sports Massage: Removing the Barriers to Peak Performance @ Swedish Institute College of Health Sciences
Feb 26 – Apr 16 all-day

Class title: Periodized Sports Massage: Removing the Barriers to Peak Performance

When: Eight Tuesdays evenings, February 26, March 5, 12, 19, 26, April 2, 9, and 16, 2019

Where: Swedish Institute College of Health Sciences   151 W. 26th Street   New York, NY 10001

CEU’s: 30 NY State, 30 FL State, 30 NCBTMB

This is not an AMTA-NY Class

Class Description: The Periodized approach to sports massage aligns massage treatments with an athlete’s or client’s training program. This approach utilizes deep tissue, neuromuscular, and myofascial techniques to optimize recovery and remove the barriers to peak performance. Movement assessment guides the application of massage techniques that are geared towards addressing areas of kinetic chain dysfunction, subconscious pain, and inefficient movement patterns. Techniques are applied with movement both on and off the table. These assessment and massage techniques can be used for improving movement patterns in any and all clients, not just athletes.

This course is part of the 3-course series which comprises the “Periodization of Sports Massage Certification”. Courses can be taken in any order, which is why this course may be taken before the “Periodized Sports Massage” course. However, it is recommended that students have experience in deep tissue, orthopedic, and trigger point massage and assessment.

Students who are not seeking to be Certified but who wish to take one or two of the courses that comprise the Certification may take the individual courses. CEUs will be awarded for each class, but not Certification.

Instruction will center on using the practitioner’s body weight as the primary tool in creating a dynamic and deeply healing treatment.  Students will learn the slow and fluid rhythm that characterizes practitioner movements in Thai massage. Students will be taught to develop a near meditative state while giving their clients a Thai massage in order to develop in the practitioner a sensitivity to, and understanding of, the unique qualities of each client’s body.  Students will also learn to treat clients with their elbows, knees, and feet based on various yoga postures in the supine, prone, lateral recumbent, and sitting positions.

This course will also provide students with a solid foundation in Thai stretching techniques to be used as a part of the overall treatment process. Instruction will include an introduction to the special concept of the Nadi energy lines adapted from Indian influences and the use of acupressure techniques on the 10 abdominal pressure points that correspond both to the Nadi lines and various parts of the body.

At the end of the 30-hour course, students will have learned all of the techniques necessary to be able to properly perform a two-hour full body Wat Po Thai massage.

Films are shown each day and numerous handouts are provided.

The first day begins with a review of body systems through the lens of pregnancy physiology and structural change. Contraindications, benefits and goals of bodywork during pregnancy are discussed in detail. Participants will learn and practice setting up the massage table and draping the client appropriately with optimal bolstering for each trimester of pregnancy.

An overview of emotional milestones during the three trimesters of pregnancy and corresponding obstetrical care will be discussed in depth so participants will have a deeper understanding of the contemporary experience of pregnancy. Ethics and the role of the massage therapist will be discussed in this context.The second day begins with distinguishing between common discomforts and concerns which require consultation with your client’s midwife or physician. The focus of the morning is on structural assessment of the client, history taking, and a detailed demonstration. Emphasis is given to working with areas of tension and myofascial restriction commonly associated with pregnancy. Each student will have the opportunity to practice with another student, and will have two full hours of practice time with a pregnant volunteer.The third day is essential to therapists working with pregnant women. It emphasizes the legacy of changes inherent in pregnancy, birth, cesarean surgery, and providing newborn care. Participants will learn about the physiological and psychological changes following both natural and surgical birth. Addressing these changes with active listening skills and bodywork is our focus. Swedish, deep tissue, and kinetic myofascial mobilization techniques will be demonstrated and practiced. In addition, postural assessment and teaching sound postpartum body mechanics are covered. Cesarean scar care and adhesion reduction is shown and practiced. Emotional and social adjustment issues are addressed, as participants may be in contact with the mother soon after birth. Giving a massage with a baby at the breast and/or on the table is demonstrated. At the close of the day, marketing and networking in this specialty will be discussed in depth. Participants who complete the program will receive certification.

This course includes an exam (required for certification and CEUs).

Class title: Integrated Neuromuscular Therapy and Ortho Assessment of the Shoulder and Arm

When: Saturday-Sunday, April 6-7, 2019

Where: Swedish Institute College of Health Sciences 151 W. 26th Street  New York, NY 10001

CEU’s: 13 NY State, 13 NCBTMB, 13 FL State

This is not AMTA-NY Class

Class Description: This class can be taken independently, or as part of the full series that comprises the Integrated Neuromuscular Therapy and Ortho Assessment Certification

This module will explore musculoskeletal anatomy and function of the Shoulder and Arm.  Lectures will be focused on muscle location / function and activity of daily living (work, hobbies, sports) stressors that will cause dysfunction within the musculoskeletal system, and with this information we will examine the main physiological factors that may create or intensify pain patterns, including nerve entrapment/compression, trigger points, pathologies and postural distortions.

The course will also include Ortho Assessments to the shoulder / elbow / wrist, so as an LMT, we know when and where to treat appropriately. We will then apply this knowledge with specific integrated NMT protocol, by applying manual advanced tissue techniques to relieve myofascial trigger points and other soft tissue dysfunction.  Practice will include demonstration, palpation, verbal walk through and practice time.

Included within the course:

  • Comprehensive muscle study – location, function, stressors and trigger point referral patterns of over 12+ muscles
  • Various muscle and connective tissue dysfunctions / pathologies will be discussed i.e., Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, shoulder impingement, Rotator cuff tear, shoulder muscular imbalance, epicondylitis, carpel tunnel
  • An Orthopedic testing technique will be demonstrated for shoulder/elbow/ wrist
  • The relationship of the arches to postural balance
  • Techniques will include: Trigger point release, Myofascial Mobilization principles, Muscle Energy Techniques, Cross Fiber Friction, and various muscle lengthening techniques. Also included emphasis on utilizing correct body mechanics
  • 10 + hrs of extensive hands-on work
  • Extensive manual of all treatments, muscles (their anatomy and physiology), most lecture notes

This class can be taken independently, or as part of the full series that comprises the Integrated Neuromuscular Therapy and Ortho Assessment Certification

Jeff brings NMT to a whole new level with nearly 20 years of rehab experience. He not only incorporates palpation and release of tps, but with his background in exercise and education and his extensive clinical experience, he has enhanced the NMT procedures with Orthopedic Assessments, Muscle Energy Technique Stretching and strength training. The in-depth and precise NMT and Ortho Assessment protocols you are going to learn in this course will assist you in working with each client’s specific needs towards bringing a resolution of ongoing body pain. And will in turn elevate your practice to a whole other level. Some students call Jeff’s training “trigger-point therapy course on steroids.” See the sidebar for testimonials.

This is a stand-alone course that can be taken individually, independent of the Certification, so no prerequisite is required and no additional modules are required unless you want to complete the full Certification.

In order to become Certified in Integrated NMT, then you would need to complete the additional 5 modules that comprise the Certification and pass a written and practical test.

Natural Face Lift Massage @ Swedish Institute College of Health Sciences

Class title: Natural Face Lift Massage

 When: Friday-Monday, April 26-29, 2019

 Where: Swedish Institute College of Health Sciences  151 W. 26th Street   New York, NY 10001

 CEU’s: 28 NY State, 28 NCBTMB, 28 FL State, 28 NCCAOM

This is not an AMTA-NY Class

 Class Description: The Mehta Face Massage is a unique treatment that combines the benefits of tried-and-tested therapies including acupressure, head massage, body massage and lymphatic drainage to firm, lift, re-contour and restore the skin’s radiance.

Drawing on the wisdom of ancient Ayurvedic healers and the centuries old Indian tradition of massage, this unique modality incorporates acupressure points and specially adapted massage moves with aesthetic principles to smooth fine lines, iron out wrinkles and remove eye bags and puffiness. It works primarily by freeing constrictions both within the facial muscles and in the underlying connective tissue, thereby helping skin regain its elasticity and encouraging wrinkles and bags to diminish. Performed by a skilled practitioner, the benefits for the recipient are numerous and include the following:

  • Reduced wrinkles and expression lines
  • Toned and improved complexion
  • Reduced puffiness and eye bags
  • Relief from tension headaches, eyestrain and other stress-related symptoms

This intense 4-day workshop is strategically structured into eight distinct phases, working on the neck and each side of the face systematically, with detailed instructions and demonstrations of each of the precise, targeted moves at each new step. Students will practice specially designed massage strokes combined with acupressure to gently penetrate the deepest layers of sensitive facial skin and the underlying muscles, and bring fresh lymph into the facial area to provide a fresh, glowing look that lasts for days.

80% of the workshop will be hands-on practice and will culminate with each student performing a full one-hour facial treatment. The success of NFLM lies in its potential to allow the client to look and feel radiant in a few sittings.

 *The Natural Face Lift Massage workshop is based on, and certified by, the London Center for Indian Champissage International. Upon completion of the class, students will be awarded a “Certificate of Attendance” from the London Center of Indian Champissage International, and will be qualified to schedule an exam for London Center for Indian Champissage International Certification if they wish. The certification exam (which requires an additional thirty hours of practice), consists of one-hour theoretical and one-hour practical parts, and is not included in the class time or tuition.
