Level I Craniosacral

Riding the Wave, Touching Stillness

ASIS Tucson September 2nd-4th

ASIS Mesa October 7-9th

with Heidi Wilson

Friday 5-9pm Saturday & Sunday 9am – 6pm

Level I  introducing Craniosacral work with a biodynamic perspective. The sacred practice of touch, deeply listening with our hearts and hands from a place of compassionate stillness. This course will be a look at the history of craniosacral work, with the exploration and manipulation of cranial bone movement which evolved into the gentle and subtle yet powerful healing energy work that we can experience and learn today as craniosacral therapy and biodynamic craniosacral work.

The course introduces students to the structural elements of the craniosacral mechanism: the bones, central nervous system, membranes, tissues, and cerebrospinal fluid. It also explains the elements of the fluid dynamics of the craniosacral system from the “biodynamic” perspective: the potency, the fluid motion and stillness as expressed by the tidal movement of the “Breath of Life” within the body. Students will practice sensitizing their hands to the energetics of each of the major bones of the cranium, and practice cultivating the inner stillness and presence that is needed to listen to the tidal expressions of this healing wisdom within the human being.

Massage therapists will be able to start incorporating these concepts and contacts into their massages right away. They will also come away with some suggested sequences to practice whole hour long sessions of craniosacral work.

Instructor:  Heidi Wilson Heidi Wilson has been practicing craniosacral work since 1994.  She is certified in Visionary Craniosacral work from the Milne Institute.  She has also studied biodynamic methods from Charles Ridley, Jan Jones, Ryan Halford, Franklyn Sills and Debra Meness, D.O. www.heidiwilsonfluidhealing.com

This course also includes recommendations for how to talk to a client about skin changes and suggesting they see their primary care provider or dermatologist for a skin check without alarming them. You will leave this course armed with information and skills that could significantly improve the lives of your clients and enhance your role in their wellness team.

Resistance & Release

with Deane Juhan

ASIS TUCSON CAMPUS   

November 19/20th  2016

9.30 am – 6.30 pm each day

Resistance Release work is a dynamic and interactive approach for the re-coordination of extensive synergistic muscle groups. the improvement of strength, ease, increased range of motion and the elimination of chronic restrictions and discomforts.

It is difficult for individuals to free up and re-coordinate restricted movement patterns without actively engaging the muscle groups that have become stuck in habituated patterns & are causing discomforts and limitations.  This engagement is not simply a matter of “relaxing” but of lengthening some muscle cells, contracting others, more effectively recruiting motor nerves and their motor units for coordinated action, & establishing both increased strength & ease. Resistance/Release is a process of providing traction and/or compression to muscle groups, asking the client to pull or push against the resistance applied & guiding them through the process of refining the coordination of their efforts. The resulting reorganization provides a more evenly distributed action throughout extensive muscle groups and an immediate experience of less effortful and more effective movement. Restrictions of movement and the discomforts of the resulting strain disappear.  both ranges of motion and the minimization of over-all effort are dramatically enhanced.  Resistance/Release work is designed to re-coordinate our musculature as a whole and to train more efficient and effective recruitments of muscular contractions & lengthenings involved in any position or movement. from feet to head and from sleeve to core the result is dramatically improved muscular coordination, adding both ease and strength to all physical activities.

This work is a powerful addition to any bodyworker’s previous training and practice.

Deane Juhan may be best known as the author of Job’s Body: A Handbook for Bodywork an essential text on the means, methods, uses, and deeply personal applications of what has come to be known as “bodywork”  First trained in Esalen massage, he developed a private practice and led workshops in massage as well as seminars in anatomy and physiology for bodyworkers. In 1976 he met Dr. Milton Trager, founder of the Trager Institute for Psychophysical Integration, and has been a practitioner and instructor of the TRAGERWork approach ever since. He is on the faculty of the Northern California Trager Institute and has developed a series of workshops in dynamic anatomy and in Trager? Bodywork for bodyworkers and therapists of all kinds, which he conducts all over the United States, in Canada and in Europe.  http://www.jobsbody.com

ethics1IMMERSION into ETHICS for Massage Therapists

Saturday April 1st

1-4.30 pm Flagstaff Campus

A day of ethics immersion for the massage therapist will speak to the many questions therapists have once in the workplace; exploring roles/boundaries, professionalism, confidentiality, business practices, and more including somatic and mindful exercises

As massage therapists, our clients come to us to receive care and comfort, many times from a place of vulnerability. How we express ourselves through our words and actions can convey sincerity and compassion, or may challenge our own abilities to remain calm and attentive. Bringing mindfulness to each situation helps to create healthy boundaries and professionalism to our practice.

As we explore ethics, so we explore ourselves. An understanding of the foundation of ethics for your massage practice will help your practice from the ground up, with the recognition that our own continued growth and transformation will help us to attain not only our potential as massage therapists, but also as human beings.
