IN THE PIT, A Unique Approach To Shoulder Work
The shoulder is the most complex joint in the body. It has the flexibility to accommodate so much movement, yet must be stable. In this workshop we will offer approaches to help support the shoulder while maintaining its full range of motion. We will contact the rotator cuff muscles, and the surrounding structures of the shoulder girdle and axilla in order to give the shoulders a sense of freedom and integrity.

In this workshop we will explore the role of a massage therapist in supporting a woman in her preparation for labor and birth process. Through understanding the physiological phases of labor and the body’s pain response we can bring an awareness to the birth process that is empowering for the women we support and help alleviate pain and discomfort.

CORE CONTACTS, Working With Psoas, QL, and Diaphragm
In this two day workshop we will delve deeply, gently and specifically into key areas of the body and learn advanced techniques to address your clients core issues, which can often be responsible for their chronic pain. This includes work with psoas, illiacus, quadratus lumborum, diaphragm, subscapularis and more. Along with hands on massage work we will discuss kinesology, learn stretches, and talk about integrating core work into a broader session. We will also explore the 'energetics' of the core and learn how to work with the muscles on both a physical and energetic level to enable you to serve your clients with a variety of approaches.
