Indian Head Massage for Chair  & Table

Class Full - Contact instructor for waiting list
Tiffany Brown, LMT
Saturday, August 22, 2020
9 a.m. - 6 p.m.
8 CEs
Fee: $165 early registration, $185 after July 31, 2020

Based on ancient Indian scalp massage, these techniques have been practiced for over a thousand years. The massage is calming yet revitalizing, and focuses on the parts of the body most prone to tension and stress: the upper back, neck, shoulders, face and scalp. Indian Head Massage encourages the deepest relaxation and can help eyestrain and headaches, improve concentration (by improving blood flow), boost hair health, relieve shoulder tension, increase neck mobility, calm the mind and ease emotional stress.

The techniques are delivered with the client fully clothed using a chair or as part of a complete bodywork session using a table. Oil is recommended but optional for the scalp massage. For the table segment students may remove upper garments or wear a tank top or spa wrap as oil is applied to the upper arms, shoulders, neck and upper back. The instructor includes organic  herbal scalp oils from Solavedi. This blissful technique offers gentle relief from physical ailments in addition to general relaxation. Great to add to onsite chair massage, for geriatric clients confined to a wheelchair or as a creative ending to a table massage.

Treating the Feet

Class Full - Additional date: September 12, 2020

4 CEs
Fee: $85 early registration, $95 after July 31, 2020

Feet function as the body’s shock absorbers and are many times the hardest worked of all body parts. Unfortunately, many of our clients experience foot fatigue on a regular basis and a one hour massage session does not allow enough time to pamper and fully address the issues of the feet.  Learn and experience a specialized 4-part foot treatment employing 4 different products and massage therapies as follows: 1) foot soak with compression, 2) circular effleurage with abrasives, 3) foot mask with plantar massage and 4) rejuvenating foot massage with lotion.

Benefits of foot massage include the most basic, it feels good! Clients can experience relaxation as well as pain relief. Other general benefits include stress relief, reduction of tension, improved blood circulation, stimulation of the lymphatic system (facilitating the flow of lymph throughout the body), loosening of the feet’s connective tissue to lessen stiffness, and promotion of overall good health. Foot massage can also help fight depression and improve the quality of sleep by helping the body to unwind, which encourages restful sleep.

The client is comfortably seated during this relaxing, 30-40 minute therapeutic process.  It can be offered as an add-on service to a full body massage or it can be a focused session on its own. Add it to your menu of services to increase your income and to further benefit your clients.

Tian Di Bamboo Massage is the premier style of bamboo massage out today! Distinctly different, detailed work- our massage tools are custom crafted of natural bamboo with capped ends and designed exclusively to accommodate the body for this style of highly therapeutic work for soft tissue manipulation, mimicking the fingers, hands, wrists, and elbows to create a method for gliding strokes, deep tissue and more.
You will learn how to give a full body massage that results in relaxed muscles, and overall wellbeing. Our bamboo sticks generate two important properties - Piezoelectricity; activated with pressure and Pyroelectricity with heat. These two properties combine as we use the sticks to penetrate from superficial to deep into the tissues. Many clients have expressed whole body tingling and a warming sensation at the end of the treatment.

Tian Di Bamboo Massage will revitalize the musculoskeletal system, helping the therapist to deliver cohesive connective tissue release throughout the body, addressing target areas, and assisting the lymphatic system to dissipate unhealthy pathogens accumulated by toxins and poor circulation, therefore aiding in deep tissue healing, muscle spasms, and trigger points as well as alleviating pain, stiffness, and increasing range of motion.

LMTs are trained in this unique style of massage that addresses the body as a whole and highlights contracted and congested areas for specific relief. Boost your business by offering your clients Tian Di Bamboo Massage- known for its profound positive results. Be a cut above the rest and excel in your service offerings!

Heart of Massage, Deep Tissue Never Felt This Good!

Ted Schulte, LMT, NMT
Saturday, October 17 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. and
Sunday, October 18, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
12 CEs
Fee: $250


Deep Tissue massage is known to be effective and satisfying to the client. It is also known to sometimes shorten the career of therapists performing Deep Tissue massage. The techniques learned by taking this course will heighten the satisfying experience of the client, as well as make it easier on the therapist to perform.

The variety of deep tissue strokes taught by Ted are not something you can learn anywhere else. Our goal is not to replace a student's style of massage, but rather to build on their own personalized methods through proper body mechanics that provide the most beneficial outcome. This hands-on course has been designed around the concept of small group instruction. By limiting the number of open spaces, Ted has created a place where students can be closely observed and directed with ample one-on-one teaching. Small adjustments make a big difference for both the therapist and the client.
