This is not an AMTA-NY Class

Class Description: During this eight-section course we will explore various terrains of the body and learn treatment protocols for commonly occurring pathologies. There will be a discussion of each pathology along with a demonstration and practice of advanced soft-tissue techniques. Using myofascial work along with muscle-specific articulate techniques, we will comprehensively address a specific area of the body for each class. First, in a local and specific way, and then, more broadly so that the area of pathology can be reconnected back to the surrounding terrain, and its function reintegrated back into three-dimensional holographic movement.

The goal of this course is to learn result-oriented treatment protocols designed to help clients restructure their holding patterns and to generate pain relief, fluidity and ease of movement.

Week 1: The Lower Back: low back pain, disc issues, lordosis

Week 2: The Hip: sciatica/piriformis syndrome, psoas issues

Week 3: The Lower Extremity: chondromalacia patella, sprained ankle

Week 4: The Upper Back: kyphosis, upper back pain, disc issues, whiplash

Week 5: The Shoulder/Pectoral Girdle: nerve entrapment, tendonitis, frozen shoulder

Week 6: The Neck: whiplash, thoracic outlet syndrome, disc issues

Week 7: Head and Face: migraine, TMJ syndrome

Week 8: Review and Final Exam: For certification. Passing is required for CEUs also.

Description:
Clinical Orthopedic Manual Therapy (COMT) of the Upper Extremity 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 upper extremity. The topics covered are:
• palpation and orthopedic assessment techniques
• body mechanics for deep pressure techniques
• stretching techniques for the joint of the upper extremity, 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 finger, wrist, elbow and shoulder joints.
The emphasis of this workshop is to link together the critical thinking process needed to carry out the assessment along with the hands-on treatment techniques needed to treat the assessed condition.
Some of the conditions covered are:
• tennis elbow
• golfer’s elbow
• carpal tunnel syndrome
• strain and sprain
• myofascial trigger points
• de Quervain’s syndrome
• joint dysfunction
• frozen shoulder.
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.

Materials needed; Linens and lubricant. CNWSMT has tables they allow us to use.

Class title: Fundamentals of Ortho-Bionomy®: The Spine

When: Saturday and Sunday, February 9-10, 2019

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

CEU’s: 14 NCBTMB, 14 FL State, 14 NCCAOM (NO NY State)

This is not an AMTA-NY Class

Class Description: Ortho-Bionomy® is a unique form of bodywork with a reputation for being a gentle way to relieve pain.  The Ortho-Bionomy® catalog of techniques includes working with the joints, muscles, posture, organs, fluids, cranium and the nervous system, and is based on the philosophy of allowing the body to heal itself by inviting change rather than forcing a correction.

In this two-day workshop, students will learn the history, principles, and fundamental Ortho-Bionomy® techniques for working with the spine, pelvis and ribcage. These techniques can result in the relief of pain and neuromuscular tension, promote increased range of motion, improve structural alignment, and aid in a greater sense of well-being.

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.

Instructor: David Lobenstine. LMT

Description;

Your client’s body is stuck in its usual spots. No surprise. But is your work stuck in a rut, too? Do you need to add a new dimension to your sessions? Then come explore the body in a new way – from new angles.
In this two-part workshop we will look first at the upper body, and then the lower body, and in the process we will learn new ways to get out of the rut that we as therapists can all too easily get stuck in. Our focus here will be to tackle those familiar (but sometimes forgotten) muscles, and those all-too-familiar client complaints, but from unusual angles, and using unusual techniques. We will sit along the sides of the table. We will kneel. We will rock the body. We will work from the opposite side of the table. We will both sink slowly into the client, and we will pull and lean the client up and away from the table.
The aim of these interventions is two-fold. First, by working outside of our usual habits – both by utilizing new angles and unusual techniques – my aim is challenge participants’ body mechanics. As we try new things we realize which of our habits have become ossified – we realize the ways that we are stuck in a rut. Throughout the workshop we explore our own body mechanics, and experiment with ways of working that are more efficient. Second, my aim is to expand the technique toolbox of each participant, giving them the ability to tackle the client complaints they encounter every day in new and satisfying ways.

Materials needed; A massage table, linens and lubricant.

Class Description: This course provides instruction in Wat Po massage, the predominant method practiced in southern Thailand based on Buddhist history and philosophy, Chinese acupressure meridians and yoga.

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.
