Gross Anatomy Lab Lecture – Lower Body- Central New York @ Crouse Hospital, Marley Education Center
Sep 15 @ 8:30 am – 5:30 pm

CEs ​ 8

Description:
For centuries, Gross Anatomy has provided modern medicine with a strong foundation for exploration, information gathering, and research. Through the careful palpation of dissected cadavers, this class will offer massage therapists the ability to enhance their understanding of the human body and anatomy, especially the skeletal system. Students will receive an anatomy lecture and a corresponding palpation lab where they will don protective gear and explore skeletal & muscular structures of cadavers and cadaver sections. You will explore that area of the body thoroughly and explore some bodies with relative pathologies such as an ACL tear, rotator cuff injury, etc. In addition, Dr. Berg will offer a lecture overview of major pathologies or injuries common to those areas

Description:
Clinical Orthopedic Manual Therapy (COMT) of the Low Back and Pelvis is a 2-day hands-on workshop that covers beginner, intermediate, and advanced assessment and treatment techniques for the manual therapist when working on the client’s low back and pelvis. The topics covered are: body mechanics for deep pressure techniques; working the psoas major safely and effectively; stretching techniques for the low back and pelvis, including functional group stretching and advanced multiplane, contract relax (CR; also known as PIR or PNF) and agonist contract (AC; basis of AIS) techniques; and joint mobilization techniques for the sacroiliac and lumbar spinal joints, including traction. The underlying mechanisms for the assessment and treatment techniques of the low back and pelvis are discussed and explained. The approach of this workshop is to teach from the perspective of critical thinking so the therapist can creatively apply the techniques for clinical orthopedic work on their clients.

Critical Myofascial Strategies; The Upper Extremities- New Paltz @ One Epic Place
Oct 13 @ 9:00 am – Oct 14 @ 4:30 pm

When: October 13-14 , 2018
Time: 9-4:30
Where: One Epic Place, New Paltz
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: anterior scalpular tilt with elbow flexor shortness). 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.


PRESENTER: Richard Condon

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
Myofascial Release (MFR) is a gentle, hands-on Physical Therapy technique that facilitates a sustained stretch into restricted soft tissue. The Myofascial Release method was developed by John F. Barnes in an attempt to alleviate his own back pain. MFR restores length and health to the myofascial tissues and takes pressure off of pain-sensitive tissues like nerves and blood vessels. This ultimately restores alignment and mobility of joints, muscles and soft tissue, thereby reducing pain and restoring functional movement.

About the Instructor

Lisa Satalino

After graduating from Russell Sage College in 1986 I have practiced physical therapy with a specialization in the area of Myofascial Release and Craniosacral Therapy. I have taken all of John F. Barnes’ courses and passed his Proficiency Assessment, and have served as an assistant instructor and coordinator for John F. Barnes’ seminars nationally.

I created the MFR curriculum for the Center for Natural Wellness School of Massage Therapy in 1999 and continue to oversee the ongoing development of this curriculum at present. Additionally I have developed a 118 hour Certification program in MFR and co-created a 16 hour seminar on the foot and its relationship to upper chain disorders for the Professional Continued Education Division of CNWSMT – an approved provider of continued education for licensed physical therapists and massage therapists. More recently I have developed curriculum to support athletic training practices based on updates in fascial research and have developed and implemented injury prevention practices and rehabilitation for a local USAG gymnastics team.

My clinical experience includes working in home care, early intervention, the school setting, rehabilitation, private practice, and with equine athletes and gymnasts. I have been certified in Fascial Movement Taping Levels 1 and 2 and am a NYS certified early intervention provider.

At present I am the Executive Director of the Center for Natural Wellness School of Massage Therapy where I oversee and manage all operations of this private trade school, its working clinic, bookstore, and Professional Education program.
