360 Pelvis Class

The pelvis attachments can be an under worked area, it's intense, difficult, and intimate, yet, so important! I will go over the anatomy of this area, posture alignment, and show how to work the abdominal wall, psoas, illiacis, QL, and those many glute muscles.

Cupping Therapy

The suction and negative pressure created by cupping helps loosen muscles, encourages blood flow, pulls metabolic waste out of our tissues, relaxes the nervous system, reduces cellulite and can also reduce high blood pressure. Cupping is an ancient modality revered in many eastern cultures and is a wonderful, unique experience that can be added to any massage modality. In this class I will demonstrate how to use a few different types of cups properly on yourself and clients, and lecture on the benefits, cautions, and physiology of cupping therapy.

Intro to Cranial Sacral Therapy

Cranial Sacral Therapy is a gentle, noninvasive form of bodywork that addresses the bones of the head, spinal column and sacrum. The goal is to release compression in those areas which alleviates stress, pain, and many other symptoms that can include blury vision, ringing ears, and migraines. Since this modality can be hard to grasp fully, I feel it would be difficult to learn in just one class, so I will  be doing a 7hr class one week and another the next week to allow for more practice and study time in between.  Students must attend both classes to receive full credit. 

- 14 CEUs - NCBTMB Approved

- $250

- Upcoming Classes:

- June 6th & 13th, 2020 10a-5p

CST - Sphenoid Dysfunction

The Sphenoid is at the center of all the cranial bones, and can sometimes be the root of many problems in the cranial sacral system. This cranial sacral therapy class will be all about the sphenoid; anatomy, cranial nerves, accessing & treating sphenoid dysfunction. We will also go over the hard palate as well!

Prerequisites: Good understanding of the cranial sacral system, & very good at palpating the cranial rhythm. 

- 4 CEUs - NCBTMB approval pending

- $80

- Next Class: April 4th, 9a-1p

Hot/Cold Stone Basics

Do you feel like you never really learned stone massage? You just got thrown into it when you got hired at a spa... Well then this class is for you! I will go through a quick background of this modality, talk about stone basics, contraindications, the benefits of hot and cold stones, & show proper technique. You will definitely leave this class with a solid understanding of stone massage and how to best utilize stones whether its a luxurious full body treatment or just an extra tool for your deep bodywork sessions.  

Each student will also receive a facial stone set to take home!

- 6 CEUs - NCBTMB Approved

Essential Oils for the Spa Professional

Anyone who loves essential oils or who knows nothing about essential oils yet can easily add them into their massages and provide their clients with an extra special experience. I will educate students on many of the top chosen oils for massage purposes and show how to best incorporate them into a massage session.  This class is recommended for LMTs, LEs, Nail Techs, Spa Receptionists, and anyone else looking for more knowledge on EOs in a salon/spa setting.
