Upcoming Courses

Assisted Stretching Postures from Thai Massage
on the Massage Table

Dr. Camden Clay, D.C.
Saturday, June 20 - Sunday, June 21, 2020
9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
12 CEs
Fee: $295


Assisted Stretching Postures from Thai Massage on the Table is a technique that provides a full body stretch that is effective and comfortable for the massage therapist and client. Providing these techniques on the massage table creates an ergonomically beneficial method to perform a quality treatment with less strain and discomfort for the massage therapist.

Sometimes called lazy yoga, assisted yoga, or total body stretch, this technique uses passive-assisted stretching, where the massage therapists guide clients to move into their stretch. The combination of movements and stretching during a session provides a full body stretch and tissue rejuvenation.

Assisted Stretching Postures from Thai Massage on the Table is perfect for athletes, desk-bound workers and people who could use a little stretching and movement in their daily activities!

Quick Self Fixes and Targeted Muscle Testing

Lyndzey Dare
Saturday, July 11 - Sunday, July 12, 2020
9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
12 CEs
Fee: $295


Quick Self Fixes are 32 self treatments that prevent and resolve connective tissue tightness and/or joint fixations. These self fixes usually make chronically weak muscles instantly strong and keep them strong when the Quick Self Fixes are performed regularly. Strong muscles promote better function and comfort. These fixes are great self care tools for any massage therapist looking to stay strong and healthy so they can perform at their best! Massage therapists will also learn how they can provide these Quick Self Fixes to their massage clients, giving extra healing tools for clients to continue to use at home.

Targeted Muscle Testing is a muscle strength evaluation system developed by Dr. Cassius Camden Clay. Targeted Muscle Testing challenges a person’s muscle strength against a tester’s pressure as a means of quickly determining  muscle weaknesses and/or strengths. Weak muscles are not weak because you need more exercise. These muscles are most often weak because of connective tissue tightness and/or joint fixations that are disrupting nerve conduction, blood flow, lymphatic drainage, and/or cerebral spinal fluid flow that are essential for sustained muscle strength. These muscles have gone dormant like a bear hibernating in the winter to conserve its resources.

A daily routine of the Quick Self Fixes contained in this course will activate dormant muscles and keep you strong.

Tian Di Bamboo Massage:  The Art of Massage with Bamboo

Bonny D. Goslee, LMT, BCTMB, RM
Saturday, August 1 - Sunday, August 2, 2020
9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
14 CEs
Fee: Early Registration $325, $340 after July 17, 2020


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!

Nurturing the Mother®: Pregnancy & Postpartum Massage

Claire Marie Miller
Saturday, September 5 - Monday, September 7, 2020
9 a.m. - 6 p.m.
24 CEs
Fee: $450 early registration; $475 after Aug.18, 2020


Nurturing the Mother has certified thousands of massage therapists in pregnancy and postpartum massage since 1990. Utilizing a comfortable, secure side-lying position, this method helps to avoid undue pressure on a growing abdomen and the lower back. Pillows completely support the mothers, keeping the hip, knees, and ankles on the same level to avoid pulling on the sacroiliac joint, as well as to maximize blood and lymph circulation. Side-lying is the safest for both mother and baby and educates the client about the ideal sleeping position at the same time.

This Nurturing the Mother protocol uses a combination of the following methods:

  1. Calming Swedish massage strokes for tension release increased circulation, and deep muscle relaxation.
  2. Gentle range-of-motion and stretching movements to relieve pressure through the neck, shoulders, lower back, hips, and rib cage. It also promotes greater strength, flexibility, and balance.
  3. Deep tissue work is performed in the hip and gluteal area to help alleviate chronic lower back and hip pain.
  4. Abdominal massage for round ligament pain, to support digestion, to increase circulation to the placenta and baby, and to raise awareness of the baby.
  5. Lymph drainage strokes to reduce pregnancy-induced edema.
  6. Cranial-sacral and polarity therapy for physical/psychological/emotional/spiritual centering.
  7. Acupressure and reflexology techniques are shown to be effective in treating many common pregnancy-related complaints.

Training Your Touch 2: Following the Fascia

Randall Gibson
Saturday, October 3 - Sunday, October 4, 2020
8:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.
16 CEs
Fee: $285


This course is your next step in refining your palpation and assessment skills. After a quick review of Training Your Touch: Advanced Palpation Skills (which is NOT a prerequisite for this class), students explore more reasons for monitoring the heart and breath rate. Then, students practice in-depth evaluations of the fascial body at various listening stations to identify stress or dysfunction. The osteopathic concept of “the Body Hugs the Lesion” is then applied to explain a variety of different therapy methods, including the use of myofascial unwinding at specific areas and joints.

On the second day, students assess tension patterns and fascial pulls in the upper extremities, lower extremities, and the spine. By applying what they have learned to different layers of tissue, the students are able to literally “follow the fascia.” Finally, students will be able to pull all of the lessons together in order to practice assessment and treatment in groups of 3.

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.
