I found Ashiatsu that same year and signed up as soon as I could. The first class I knew, this was going to do so many amazing things for my career and business including the longevity of both.

Presenter: Judith DeLany, LMT
CEH’s: 16

Class Description:
When a joint presents with a high degree of mobility, instability is an associated factor. The shoulder is one of the most mobile joints in the body and an array of complications can result from poor habits of use, strain and trauma.

This course will explore the complex makeup of the shoulder joint and a variety of associated dysfunctions, syndromes, and surgeries. We will also look at how some habitual sport movements can alter the shoulder forever. We will consider the primary glenohumeral joint muscles that cause shoulder pain and dysfunction with detailed anatomy support. A step-by-step treatment protocol will be demonstrated (supine, sidelying, prone) and a directed trade will help you to master the techniques and strategies for improving shoulder health..

Massage tables, facerests and bolsters (or pillow) for foot/leg support will be needed. Each person should bring table linens, even if not bringing a table. Lubrication will be needed (no lavender or strong scents, please). Writing pens and paper are suggested. Handouts will be provided.

 Presenter: Judith DeLany, LMT

Judith DeLany is a dynamic presenter who has spent over three decades developing NMT techniques and course curricula for manual practitioners. She has co-authored five NMT textbooks (with Dr. Leon Chaitow) and spearheaded a 3D Anatomy software project for massage and manual therapies (Primal Pictures). Her professional focus aims to advance education in all health care professions to include myofascial therapies for acute and chronic pain syndromes.
