There is clinical evidence that a huge contribution to shoulder pain comes from prior injuries or surgeries (scars) and musculoskeletal imbalances throughout the entire body. Fascial lines of tension can cause the entire body to compensate. Without doing Total Body Balancing Techniques and treating scars that have accumulated over a lifetime, the shoulder symptoms usually return. Therapists will evaluate the stirrup spring system in the ankle responsible for "Ascending Syndromes" that work their way up into the knee, hip, spine, shoulder, and neck. Therapist will also correct tibial torsion patterns in the knee, along with iliosacral torsions and resultant ascending roto-scoliosis of the lumbar spine. If uncorrected, this can lead to ascending kyphosis of the thoracic spine, and resultant Atlanto-occipital joint compression. After treating scars, and doing total body balancing, manual therapists will evaluate and treat shoulder impingent, bursitis, bicipital tendinosis, rotator cuff injuries, and thoracic outlet. The highlight of this class will be new clinical studies and techniques that will revolutionize the treatment of advanced stage adhesive capsulitis, known as "Frozen Shoulder."

Nurturing the Mother® has certified 1000s of massage therapists in pregnancy and postpartum massage since 1990. This method utilizes a comfortable, secure side-lying position to avoid undue pressure on a growing abdomen and the lower back. Mothers are completely supported by pillows, keeping hip, knee and ankle on the same level to avoid pulling on the sacroiliac joint and to maximize blood and lymph circulation. Side-lying is the safest for mother and baby, and educates the client about the ideal sleeping position.
This Nurturing the Mother® protocol uses a combination of the following methods:
Calming Swedish massage strokes for deep muscle relaxation, tension release and increased circulation.
Gentle range-of-motion and stretching movements to relieve pressure through neck, shoulders, rib cage, lower back and hips, and to promote greater strength, flexibility and balance
Deep tissue work in the hip and gluteal area to help alleviate chronic lower back and hip pain.
Abdominal massage for round ligament pain, to support digestion, increase circulation to the placenta and baby and to increase awareness of the baby. The baby will feel and benefit from the massage.
Lymph drainage strokes to reduce pregnancy induced edema.
Cranial-sacral and polarity therapy for physical/psychological/emotional/spiritual centering.
Acupressure and reflexology techniques shown to be effective in treating many common pregnancy related complaints

This intensive, hands-on, two-day workshop teaches you a comprehensive, effective stretching protocol for the upper and lower body that can be performed on your clients in 50 to 60 minute sessions.

AAS is especially good for athletes, the elderly, and the injured, and can also benefit the neurologically impaired.
