    Date: Sunday, November 24th, 2019

    Time: 9:00am to 6:00pm

    Registration and Contact: renimble@gmail.com

    This workshop presents Principles that comprise a process of safely reclaiming one’s physical independence.

    Principles will replace Protocols. We will be shelving notions of isolating individual muscles, Reps and Sets, and instead focusing on functional applications in daily life.

    After all, a single anatomical structure never operates in complete isolation.

    We will define and focus on what the individual can do rather than on physical limitations. This approach affords them the opportunity to simultaneously develop confidence and progress

    their condition on a path to reclaiming their desired lifestyle.

    Participants will be guided through the process of discovering what movements they currently have access to and how to refine and progress them. They will quickly learn that developing more youthful mobility and strength IS possible, but that it requires a shift in our thinking.

    Tasks involved in this process will include movement challenges and games; individual movement exploration; and partner challenges.

    We will then apply these practices to clinical scenarios in order to equip participants with real strategies that can be practiced for themselves and taught to clients and patients.

    Embodied Boundaries and Consent for Touch - For You & Your Patient 

    November 30 to December  01   - 14 hours

    Touch is an instinctive, natural language that we can all speak and understand. It’s essential for stimulating our nervous system and promoting healthy physical development.

    It is also critical for our mental and social development. We will explore and work with the beneficial effects of conscious touch and the resultant natural release of the feel good hormone oxytocin to bring you to a place of peace, empowerment, growth and self-connection.

    As touch professionals we should be experts in negotiating boundaries and consent around touch. As human beings we have needs and desires in many areas. We are however, often "programmed" so that we are not able to own these needs and desires. Often being told that we don’t deserve or not even allowed them.

    Many of us have learnt to disconnect from our needs and desires, getting to a place where we no longer know what what we truly want. As a result, we often develop unconscious strategies for getting these needs met and, as they are not conscious, they can be manipulations. This lack of clarity in understanding and owning what we really want can result in difficult dynamics in our relationships not only with others but also ourselves and the world around us.

    When we are clear what our boundaries are we can start to move into conscious consent. This clarity allows for clean interactions between us and our patients and helps us communicate effectively with our colleagues, patients and peers.

    We will start with the topics of voice and speaking your truth, and then we’ll go on to consider assertiveness. Power dynamics, personal space, culture, marginalization, intention, humor, and forgiveness in setting and maintaining boundaries. Finally we will consider how trauma can alter a person’s ability to hold clear boundaries, or give real consent, and we will learn some quick and effective tools to model and encourage embodied consent with our patients.

    This course offers a foundational part of how we can uphold our professional capacity when working with touch. It is relevant to any health professionals who touch their patients or clients.

    Event Description

    A one-day workshop that offers a simplified framework for navigating our patients’ complaints.

    We will be unpacking Why the Tissues and Joints of those seeking our expertise present as they do. Muscles are Only able to adapt to the loads and stressors regularly placed upon them. How they present is a direct result of How they are being used.

    This workshop offers insights and strategies for how we might create the space necessary for patients’ joints and tissues to operate under different circumstances, resulting in improvements in health.

    Rather than trying to force New techniques upon you, this Workshop is designed to afford participants with a new lens through which to view the Body, and apply the techniques with which they are already familiar, but to render outcomes in a different way.

    Examples of what will be unpacked and reframed include:

    - Shifting the Therapist’s Mindset to Facilitator rather than Fixer

    - Connecting how sites of pain and/or dysfunction occur because other adjacent areas have ceased to fulfill their duties, meaning the area in question has had to take on additional work for which it is not designed.

    - Uncovering possibilities within the Transverse Plane: how improving mobility and tissue health within this plane can afford improvements in the most common of complaints, not to mention unleash significant changes in circulatory health, proprioception and perception of pain.

    Course Information

    This course is available on several dates in Canada. Please visit the site for more detail -> https://www.rhythmmassage.com.au/manual-lymphatic-drainage/

    Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a highly specialised technique that can be used to treat many injuries and pathologies. It can be performed as a preventative technique that bolsters our bodies' ability to rejuvenate and resist all types of stress.

    MLD not only stimulates the vital functions of the skin, tissues and internal organs, but also serves to eliminate cellular waste and stimulate the parasympathetic relaxation response inhibiting muscle tonus and pain.

    It provides an excellent tool for massage therapists when regular massage is contraindicated.

    This unique training course covers the many dimensions of Manual Lymphatic Drainage:

    • All areas of the body will be reviewed and students will be provided with an understanding of the lymphatic system and the implications and complications that are associated with MLD
    • Illustration for students from a clinical perspective on how to achieve complete evacuation of lymph nodes and thus achieve complete drainage to specific areas
    • Review of current research in the area and the efficacy of MLD within this research
    • Demonstration of exact area specific sequences including amount of pressure applied and examination of "0 pressure" points within these

    By the end of this two day certification course, you’ll possess the ability to understand and perform a full lymphatic drainage with confidence and skill.
