$50 deposit due at time of registration – Registration deadline: 10/05/19

Course Description

This course will introduce attendees to the principles, objectives and three key elements of Rosen Method Bodywork. We will discuss how certain kinds of touch, coupled with words that come from and speak to the body, can bring into awareness the unconscious reasons for muscle tension and restricted breathing patterns (which correspond to behavioral patterns). The benefit to massage therapists is to gain awareness of how to invite and allow clients to relax rather than using force to make them relax.

The course is taught through a combination of lecture, discussion, experiential exercises (dyads and guided reflections), demonstration, practicum and sharing.

Supplies you will need to bring:

  • Sheets
  • Notebook and pens
  • Comfortable clothing

Instructor Bio

Anais Salibian has been in private practice in massage and bodywork since 1981. Since the beginning, she was interested in addressing how the body unconsciously creates tension patterns that cause physical and emotional distress. After a long search for a way that addresses what is behind the body’s holding patterns, she found that Rosen Method Bodywork does indeed bring healing to multiple aspects of a person in an integrated way.

She became a Rosen Method Bodywork practitioner in 1996, and a certified Introductory Teacher four years later. She became a Senior Teacher in 2013, and is currently Co-Director of Training at the Rosen Method Open Center and Director of Training in the Danish School for Rosen Method Education. She travels internationally to lead trainings and workshops, specializing in the treatment of trauma.

      Course Description

      CBD bodywork and massage are becoming more popular. Any bodywork or massage using CBD offers an unconventional way to get relief from muscle soreness, chronic pain, tension and stress. The benefits of both massage therapy and CBD individually provide great relief to the body. When CBD is incorporated into massage therapy the results can be more intense. CBD will bind and act on the CB2 receptors which can be found near the skin. This will activate the endocannabinoid system to deliver relief.

Multiple Nerve Compression Patterns of the Upper and Lower Body

By: James Waslowski, LMT

Location: Rochester Campus – 302 N. Goodman Street Suite 200, Rochester NY, 14607
Date(s): Saturday & Sunday, January 11th & 12, 2020
Time(s): 9:00am-6:00pm
CEU Credits Granted: 16 CEUs

Maximum Class Size: 24

Minimum Class Size: 8

Prerequisites Courses: Must be a NYS Licensed Bodywork Professional (Chiropractor, PT, LMT, etc.)

Cost: $350

$50 deposit due at time of registration – Registration deadline: 12/27/19

Course Description

This course combines instruction in upper body and lower body nerve compression patterns.

Lower Body:
Based on myofascial pain studies and nerve compression tests; participants will learn new techniques that will forever change the way they approach nerve entrapment pain in the lower body. Too often the clinical diagnosis will focus too much on the area of clinical symptoms when dealing with peripheral nerve entrapments, without freeing up the proximal nerve entrapments that feed the peripheral nerves. Is the Tarsal Tunnel or Morton’s Neuroma nerve pain coming from the low back, hip or knee area? Nerve Compression tests will be taught that will isolate the exact areas of nerve compressions. Therapists will learn the following tests: Weber-Barsto Maneuver Functional Leg Length Test, Straight Leg Tests, Slump Test Bragger’s Test, Hip Flexion Test, Knee Flexion Test, Fixated Fibular Head Assessment, Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome Test, and Morton’s Neuroma Test. Manual Therapists must remove the soft tissue imbalances causing stress on discs and fixating joints onto nerves. In the low back, 90% of patients suffering from disc injuries do NOT require surgery. But we need to differentiate nerve compression coming from L4/L5 bulging discs, sacral torsions, spinal stenosis, fixated fibular head patterns, over-pronation or excessive supination of the ankle and metatarsal compression problems. Innovative structurally-oriented routines offer pain-free multi-modality methods for achieving immediate and permanent results for nerve entrapments throughout the kinetic chain. James will incorporate dazzling 3-D functional anatomy and human dissection models to support his multi-disciplinary approach for assessment, treatment and correction of multiple nerve entrapment pain. Revolutionary techniques to release advanced stage hip capsule problems will be highlighted in this presentation.

Upper Body:
The current medical system so often confuses severe clinical conditions such as Thoracic Outlet and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. That is because almost every patient that gets treated for either of these conditions will have nerves chronically compressed in multiple areas between the brain, spinal cord, neck, shoulders and arm. This dynamic multimedia presentation will highlight our cervical shoulder and arm work to eliminate multiple nerve crush phenomenon. Therapists will learn specific tests such as the Spurling Test indicating spinal nerve root compression, the Adson’s Maneuver Test indicating scalene involvement on nerve and vascular compression between the 1st and 2nd rib and clavicle, the Wright Abduction Test indicating the role of the pectoralis minor on the brachial plexus of nerves, the Pronator Teres Test indicating the role of the pronator teres on the median nerve, and tests such as the Phalen’s Test, Tinel’s Test, and the Tethered Median Nerve Stress Test indicating true and rare carpal Tunnel problems. The highlight of this seminar will be the hands on techniques that will eliminate the musculoskeletal cause of each area of nerve compression between the brain and fingertips forever. In addition, the therapists will learn life changing techniques to release complicated frozen shoulder problems.

Supplies you will need to bring:

  • Fitted Sheet to cover the massage tables
  • Notebook and pens
  • It is your responsibility to bring a copy of the course materials that will be emailed to you in advance (printed or already downloaded to your digital device)
  • Loose comfortable clothing that allows for freedom of movement
