If you took the course in August 2019, here is a link to the Course Notes page (it is password protected, contact me for the password if you need it): https://massagepro.org/portfolio/structural-bodywork-ce-class-notes/. I will be adding to these notes and answering any questions you have on the page as time goes on.
I have received approval (yay!!!) for three continuing education courses for massage therapists. These courses will focus on two different areas:
- Developing health information, technology and research skills for business success, improved clinical understanding and evidence-based practice.
- Bodywork theory and techniques related to the myofascia, functional movement, and posture
Kneading Knowledge (AKA I Googled it…Now What?)
In this course, students will learn and practice skills in using free technology to manage and locate information resources as well as develop a deeper understanding of research methodologies. Along the way, students will be introduced to basic resources for evaluating information resources as well as building efficient search strategies. Finally, students will be encouraged to participate in the research process through the case study. Resources for how to plan and write a case study will be evaluated and students will practice generating ideas for a case study and create an outline for one.
- I Googled it…Now What? an Introduction – Florida Board of Massage Therapy Approved CE Provider # 50-21110, Course # 20-581945.
- I Googled it…Now What?: Health Information and Research Literacy for Massage Therapists a 6 CE course (Also offered in 2 – 3-hour parts, 3 – 2-hour parts or 6 – 1-hour parts): Florida Board of Massage Therapy Approved CE Provider # 50-21110, Course # 20-602330
- Part 1: Using free resources to locate and manage information resources
- Part 2: Evaluating information resources and understanding research methods.
- Part 3: Participating in the research process by writing and publishing case studies.
Massage, Myofascial Meridians and Movement (or Mmmm…):
The bodywork course will be offered as a short introductory (2 CE) course and full (16 CE) course as a two-day to a three-day seminar. Although primarily intended for massage therapists, these courses can also be open to movement teachers such as yoga and Pilates instructors as well as personal trainers. I believe this will allow us to explore the relationships of movement and myofascial function in enlightening ways. The course is based on the work of Thomas Myers’ book Anatomy Trains and my 500-hour training as a structural integrator in the Anatomy Trains® method as well as other resources. The subjects addressed in this course are also based on my past experience as a yoga instructor, a personal trainer and a love of dance as well as my twenty-two years as a massage therapist.
