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.

The Heart Hinge
Dec

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.

Shoulder Holders

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.

CORE I Intensive

to Dec 17

CORE I Intensive

CORE I Intensive — CORE I focuses on the basic ideas of the CORE Philosophy of good, safe deep tissue bodywork: assess, learn to access the correct layer of resistance, create movements and breath work for the client, and integrate any and all work done. We also cover intention, the psoas muscle, kinesiology lines of fascia, appropriate stretching cues and focus on the CORE® one session recipe, which we also observe, practice on each other, and on a client. Added recently: skin and superficial fascia dissection DVD with Gil Hedley. There is no pre requisite for CORE I — any massage therapist (and many lay people) with curiosity can benefit from this class.

PSOAS: Storer of All Stress

PSOAS: Storer of All Stress — 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.

Unwinding the Spine

Unwinding the Spine

Unwinding the Spine — Many people suffer from back pain and problems. In this class we look at various techniques that may be useful in relieving that pain and many of these techniques you’ve probably not considered before this day. With a demo, then partner work in each segment, we experiment with various body positions to help open, access and unwind the spinal 'stuck' spots. Prone and supine back work are featured, but also deep front of spine work, seated back work and standing work.

Freeing Emotions and Energy through Myofascial Release
Dec
22
9:00 AM09:00

Freeing Emotions and Energy through Myofascial Release

Freeing Emotions and Energy through Myofascial Release — 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 this theory 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 the 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.
