Massage Therapy Continuing Education - Shoulders

At Healsci we offer various weekend 16-hour continuing education programs for massage therapists. This particular program is the 16-hour CEU course on shoulders. Our focus is moving the healing/restoration process from the physical realm to the subtle body. It is our belief that healing/restoration cannot be left to the physical realm alone. For clients to have a complete healing/restorative experience they need to be guided into the subtle body realm, which includes tapping into the non-verbal communication, the breath, and the mind.

Doorways to Awakening Series: Vishuddha Chakra

Our throat chakra is the center of communication. Communication is the center for the facilitation of healing/restoration. Linda, will guide a discussion on Visdhuddha/Throat Chakra, followed by a restorative asana sequence and aguided meditation for the balancing, strengthening and flexibility of this energy wheel.

Wholehearted Living: Intuition and Faith

Our heart center is the connection between the Divine Universal Soul and the Micro Inner Soul. Through the heart we receive the messages of the Universe and how we connect to others on a Soul level. Tanya will lead an interactive discussion on the matters of the heart, how the heart is the source of Intuition within us, and how to use this theory to help your client heals. All grounded in loving faith.

Transformation + Success: Training the Mind

The mind is the second area to receive the messages of the Universe. When calm and collect, it is very skilled at interpreting the messages of the heart, which are the messages of the Universe. When taxed with stimuli, it has a hard time reaching it's Infinite Potential and starts to create it's own stories. When we train the mind, we sync it with the resonance of the heart, and the frequency of the Soul Universe. In yoga, we use mantra to train the mind.

Unravel the Soul Series: Arm Lines Lecture

There are four Myofascial Arm Lines that integrate into and out of the shoulder girdle. They are:
  1. Superficial Front Arm Line
  2. Superficial Back Arm Line

These arms moderate gross motor movement as well as stabilize the shoulder girdle. In this lecture we will review the anatomical features of each line including:

It is our belief that healing/restoration cannot be left to the physical realm. We must help our clients tap into the Parasympathetic Nervous System in order to have a complete approach toward healing/restoration.
