CORE II Intensive: Technique — In this course we review the five session recipe and spend most of the time on techniques to enhance the work. Also included, Emotional Anatomy and more movement exercises.

Continuing the progression of learning that begins with CORE I, in CORE II we continue to work with the one session, one hour all purpose recipe for a session of generic, good-for-what-ails-you bodywork. In addition, we spend quality time learning specific CORE techniques that enhance the learning of that recipe. We’ll also visit emotional anatomy, seated backwork, and review a bibliography of related readings that support the CORE philosophy.

CORE I and II are pre-requisite to learning the CORE III and IV five series of five sessions.

About Pentony O’Hagan BSc SMRT

Pentony has 10 years experience of working with individuals to relieve musculo-skeletal pain, improve movement and function and restore balance to the body.

“Improved pain-free movement is at the core of what I try to achieve with my clients. Historically, when a new or regular client comes to see me, while treating the injury or area of stiffness/discomfort, I also focus on finding the root cause of the problem and simultaneously rectify any imbalance to prevent re-injury. Studying CORE with Noah was a game changer to my practice. Taking my focus away from the symptoms to focus on the connective tissue as a whole brought results faster that lasted longer. It also helped the clients to truly ‘meet their body’ and bring order, dynamism and fluidity to their movement. Pain, melted away.”

Pentony started her CORE journey in 2012 and in 2017 achieved her level 1 CORE teaching award. She has been teaching soft tissue techniques for many years and has now added CORE fascial release to her programme.

CORE FASCIAL RELEASE TRAINING - CORE I

CORE I is the flagship course designed and developed by Noah Steven Karrasch (SMTO Conference 2016) to provide an All Purpose Recipe of CORE Fascial Release. 

His philosophy of effective and safe Bodywork that Coaxes Order and Restores Energy offers massage therapists and other bodyworkers the opportunity to work with their clients in a new and efficient way.  Practitioners conserve their own energy and find the method easier on their body while clients are empowered to take a more active role in their treatment.

CORE Bodywork facilitates change in a Direct, Deep and Dynamic manner. 

This course will be taken by Pamela Martin BSc DARM CST RMT. Pam is one of 6 CORE Fascial Release Instructors worldwide. Her fascination with fascia was sparked in 2001 and has been fanned by Noah since 2009. 

This 2 day course is a standalone course but also offers a progression into CORE II, III and IV.  

Pam will be running CORE II in Edinburgh 19-21 October 2018. 

Noah will be running CORE III in Edinburgh April 2019.

A six-hour day is barely enough time to explore this complicated muscle and its relationships to other parts of the body, especially to iliacus and quadratus lumborum, but also to throat and jaw issues, plantar fasciitis, shoulder and back problems. Noah believes the psoas acts as a lightning rod to attract excess trauma and store it along the body’s deep line. Besides intensive study of anatomy, function and aberration, we’ll focus on how to work and how to elicit client work, slowly, gently and safely. Added in recent years: balance of psoas /diaphragm/iliacus/quadratus lumborum and attention given to interaction of vagus nerve.

Based on Noah’s book of the same name, this course examines Noah’s theory that most of us get blocked in one of four main body segments head, heart, gut or groin…and seeks to explore how and why we’ve gotten blocked and how words and touch can challenge a client to examine and let go of such blockages. We’ll spend time with the model, working to create length and space between the four segments, then turn to emotional anatomy… how the way we feel controls the way we feel.

Certain diseases, symptoms, postures and patterns can correspond to specific emotion/reaction to situations. An emotional situation over a long period of time leads to a posture that supports that emotional pattern. The focus of this class is to validate this idea so we as bodyworkers can facilitate the release of these emotions trapped in the bodymindcore mechanism. Without pretending to be psychologists, we can often recognize a specific emotion-related holding pattern and encourage the identification and release of it. This is not necessarily a time when we will release emotions; it is more a time to discuss how and when it may be appropriate to facilitate a client's emotional release. Note: Cost of book is included in this course.

Shoulder Holders

Shoulder Holders — In a long and involved day, we’ll begin peripherally from shoulders, working towards that "stuck" spot. By the time we arrive, we hope to have already created resilience and release in the problem shoulder. We look at the four 'rotator''muscles, but also at their two dozen friends and supporting characters, including what Noah calls the 'uber -rotators'. We begin far away and work towards the problem, which may not be there when we get to it. Demo and partner work. Students often tell Noah this course has helped with problem shoulders more than any course they’ve taken.

No pre-req.

The Heart Hinge

The Heart Hinge

The Heart Hinge — The heart hinge around T5-8 can be closed down on many of us due to various factors: emotional, physical, chemical. The focus of this class is to challenge bodyworkers to see this part of the spine as shortened on the front, pulling down to cover and protect the heart, shortening the front neck and shoulder muscle, causing pain above. We then discuss concepts and techniques that help to release old stuck patterns in the hinge, opening the psoas/diaphragm connection on the front of the spine and accessing the deep heart space. Demo/partner work.

We'll also work with fibromyalgia and the breath. It’s Noah's theory that the condition diagnosed as fibromyalgia is almost always proceeded by one or more traumas: surgery (particularly in the stomach area), sharp physical trauma, severe emotional trauma, or a sense of being overwhelmed by life by that definition. We all have at least a mild case of fibromyalgia! While massage and other factors can improve the condition, Noah wants to teach the client to remember how to breathe! He believes this disorder is specifically caused by that inability to get one's breath back, and we as therapists can bring these people back to health. The key to an open heart area is often learning how to breathe.

Below the Knees: CORE Reflexology & Foundation of Back Pain

Below the Knees: CORE Reflexology & Foundation of Back Pain

Below the Knees — This class serves the premise that much poor health is due to a static
condition of the foot, ankle hinge, and calves, and attempts to bring flexibility and resiliency to the ankle hinge, tibial is posterior muscle and interosseus membrane of the leg, restoring shock absorbency to the lower body, the back, and even to the head and neck through deep reflexology, movement cues, and postural realignment. We will also examine anatomical landmarks of the foot and leg that we can stimulate manually, through movement and posture.
