This class will help you to work with all structures in the arm, forearm, and hand. You will learn to successfully work with: -Lateral Epicondylitis -Cubital Tunnel Syndrome -Carpal Tunnel Syndrome -Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI) -Tendinitis and Tenosynovitis -Pronator Teres Syndrome -Stiffness and/or arthritis of the thumb We begin with SMRT releases for the muscles of the upper arm, forearm and hand. Adding to our existing knowledge, we will explore different releases for each muscle. Along with adding new releases, we will go through two handed releases for each muscle. Next, we will add in releases for the lateral shoulder and axilla, and finally, we will work on muscle binding and release the perimysium (the connective tissue surrounding each muscle bundle) and the endomysium (the connective tissue surrounding each muscle fiber) to reduce binding and allow optimal space within each muscle. Moving from the muscles, we will work directly with the bones. We will begin by assessing range of motion in the shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand joints. Then we will address each bone in these joints individually. As we go, we will learn to look for divergent points in the bones, and we will learn how to use SMRT to unlock these divergent patterns. Fascia will be our final piece in the initial demonstration. We will change our focus and learn how to apply SMRT to directly target the fascia, tendons, and ligaments in the upper arm, forearm, and hand. PLEASE NOTE: When registering for this class you can opt to put down a deposit and pay-in-full at the class or pay-in-full now.  Either way will lock-in our special promotional pricing.   Steps to register are: 1) select a quantity (i.e., number of students you are registering) for the full tuition or a quantity for the deposit, 2)  if you have chosen to pay the full tuition, select one discount, which will immediately be taken off your total (if you are paying a deposit, do NOT take a discount, we will adjust your full tuition), and 3) hit submit and make your payment.

Double Tree by Hilton 3203 Quebec St Denver CO 80216 August 18-20, 2017 **PLEASE NOTE THESE TIMES -- THEY ARE THE ACTUAL CLASS TIMES** Friday, Saturday & Sunday: 8:30 am - 5:30 pm 24 CEs – $450 Instructor: Dawn Lewis This live course is only for those who have taken the basic SMRT: Shoulder, Axilla, Ribcage, & Upper Back video or live course. We begin with SMRT releases for muscles. Adding to our existing knowledge, we will explore different releases for each muscle. Along with adding new releases, we will go through two handed releases for each muscle. Finally we will work on muscle binding and release the perimysium (the connective tissue surrounding each muscle bundle) and the endomysium (the connective tissue surrounding each muscle fiber) to reduce binding and allow optimal space within each muscle. Next, we will change our focus and learn how to apply SMRT to directly target the fascia and tendons of the muscles in the shoulder girdle, along with the ligaments of the glenohumeral joint, the costochondral joints, the sternocostal joints, and the costovertebral joints. Our next segment will refocus us again. This time we will look at what is happening with the humerus, scapula, ribs, clavicles, and vertebrae. This information will help us to further release the muscle tissue, as well as unlocking the periosteum around these individual bones, and thereby releasing the epimysium (the connective tissue surrounding each muscle). Then we will put all of this together and work with the muscles, connective tissues, and bones as we learn to follow the patterns in the client’s body to achieve postural balance and homeostasis in the shoulder girdle. Our final segment will begin with a couple of shoulder girdle assessments and treatments, and will end with a look at 4-handed SMRT for those of you lucky enough to have another SMRT therapist close enough to work with.

Doubletree by Hilton 3203 Quebec St Denver, CO 80216 October 6-8,2017 **PLEASE NOTE THESE TIMES -- THEY ARE THE ACTUAL CLASS TIMES** Friday, Saturday & Sunday: 8:30 am - 5:30 pm 24 CEs – $450 INSTRUCTOR: Dawn Lewis This live course if for those who have taken the basic SMRT: Hips, Lower Back, & Abdomen video or live course. Beginning with the posterior hip, we will add to our existing knowledge of muscle releases by delving into new, as well as two handed, releases for each muscle. We will continue our focus on the muscles through the lower back and the abdomen. As we go through each area of the body we will work on muscle binding and release the perimysium (the connective tissue surrounding each muscle bundle) and the endomysium (the connective tissue surrounding each muscle fiber) to reduce binding and allow optimal space within each muscle. Changing our focus to the bones, we will work with the alignment of the individual bones before looking at broad skeletal patterns and how these affect tension patterns in the body. So, we will begin with the hip bones, lumbar spine, ribs, and femurs. Then we will move to how these bones relate to one another, alignment issues, and how to work with these patterns. Next, we will change our focus and learn how to apply SMRT to directly target the fascia and tendons of the muscles in the hips, lower back, and abdomen, along with the ligaments of the sacroiliac joints, the iliofemoral joints, the intervertebral joints, the pubic symphysis, and the costovertebral joints. Our fascia work will lead us to the abdomen, where we will add SMRT releases for the fascia of the abdominal cavity and the ligaments of the organs within the abdominal cavity. Our final segment will begin with a couple of assessments and treatments, which will allow you to see the work in action and gain new information through each treatment. PLEASE NOTE: When registering for this class you can opt to put down a deposit and pay-in-full at the class or pay-in-full now.  Either way will lock-in our special promotional pricing. Steps to register are: 1) select a quantity (i.e., number of students you are registering) for the full tuition or a quantity for the deposit, 2)  if you have chosen to pay the full tuition, select one discount, which will immediately be taken off your total (if you are paying a deposit, do NOT take a discount, we will adjust your full tuition), and 3) hit submit and make your payment.

What classes will be taught? Monday, December 4, 2017 from 8 am to 5 pm Course Title: Burn Scar Massage Instructors: Jen Hartley and Chris Hallwas 2015 EDUCATORS OF THE YEAR by the California AMTA (American Massage Therapy Association) Course description: Handle with Care Massage invites you to attend a new and exciting way to obtain your CEU's. Earn 8 hours of specialized continuing education units in Burn Scar Massage Therapy. Burn Scar Massage Therapy is taught by Jen Hartley, a Nationally Certified Massage Therapist and a burn survivor herself. Jen has been a burn survivor for over 43 years and is one of only two instructors in the country that teach this modality. Jen was scalded by hot water at 15 months old and has third degree burns over the lower 56% of her body. Burn Scar Massage Therapy Executive Director is Chris Hallwas who is also a survivor of minor burns and knows the effects that they have not only on the body but also on the spirit of a burn survivor. Burn Scar Massage Therapy offer's the following learning criteria: Learn to identify varying degrees of burns and the body systems they affect. Learn various psychological and emotional issues faced by burn survivors that can potentially lead to an "emotional release" during massage. Learn the positive indications as well as the negative contraindications posed by massaging burn survivors. Learn the proper burn scar massage protocol to treat the various degrees of burns in the different stages of recovery. The class is an 8 hr course. The first half of class is information pertaining to the varying degrees of burns, types of scar tissue, the physical as well as emotional issues faced by burn survivors. It is presented with vivid power point photos of burn survivors and their scars. There is also a section which includes a powerful video description of burn injuries and recoveries. We have a manual of all the information we share so that they can listen rather than having to scribble notes and the manual also has an outline of the protocol we cover in class and it is adapted for the therapist to be able to perform it if the burn survivor is bed-ridden. The second half of class is when our burn survivor volunteers arrive. There is a brief period where they share the story of their accidents and answer any questions that the therapist may have and then we are hands-on for the remainder of the class. To me it is a unique experience and not because I am the instructor or a massage therapist, but because I have been a burn survivor myself since I was 15 months old. I know how important touch is to a burn survivor and I believe massage therapist have the opportunity to reintegrate safe touch back into the lives of burn survivors.

Dawn Lewis

Patti Schuneman

Instructors: Dawn Lewis and Patti Schuneman Course description: SMRT for the feet and ankles is an in-depth class that will teach you to work with the joints, ligaments, and muscles of the feet and ankles. You will learn to successfully work with:
  • Foot and ankle surgeries
  • Toe fusions
  • Calcaneal tendon tears and/or surgeries
  • Chronic inflammation in the ankle joint
  • Ankle immobilization
  • Overpronation or oversupination of the foot
  • Plantar Fasciitis, bunions, and tarsal tunnel syndrome
  • And more
SMRT is a positional release modality that interrupts pain signals in the body, painlessly resolves trigger points, has an incredibly calming effect on the nervous system, and is highly stimulating to the lymphatic system. By working with all tissues in any given area, SMRT easily and quickly allows the tissues to balance and the joints to realign effortlessly, re-establishing correct posture. Benefits of SMRT include:
  • natural realignment of joints by directly releasing specific ligaments and joint structures
  • pain free resolution of trigger points
  • swift and painless removal of adhesions
  • disruption of the positive feedback loops of pain in the nervous system
  • considerable stimulation of the lymphatic system
All of this is done quickly, with almost no pain to the client, and in a way that is tremendously easy on your body. Because we have disrupted the pain loops, settled the parasympathetic nervous system, created almost no additional pain, and brought the area back to homeostasis, the results of an SMRT treatment last. Instructors website: http://efullcircle.com/ Thursday, December 7, 2017 from 8 am to 5 pm Course Titles: Hot Stone Massage for Feet, Hands, and Arms and Therapeutic Anti-Aging Face and Neck Massage  Instructor: Dale Montelione Grust Course descriptions: Hot Stone Massage for Feet, Hands, and Arms for your clients and yourself (this is a 4 CE course) Our hands and feet take a beating every day and a relaxing massage is a welcome relief.  This class is designed to show you ways to address common injuries such as plantar fasciitis as well as how to pamper the extremities with soothing hot stone massage. Working the intricate musculature of the hands and feet can be challenging to our own hands, especially our thumbs, unless we work consciously and carefully. We will review the anatomy of the feet, hands, and forearms and discuss common problems that can arise in these areas.  Proper body mechanics are an integral part of this course and you will learn how to work with stones without compromising your wrists and hands. The contraindications/considerations of hot stone massage will be reviewed and we will discuss ways to alter sessions to accommodate certain conditions. You will learn how to heat or cool stones to the proper temperature to achieve our desired therapeutic outcome: deep muscle relief without causing tissue trauma and learn how to sanitize your stones for client safety.  Stone massage can save your hands and extend your career.  You will be working with more ease and less strain. Course Objectives: At the end of this workshop, students will be able to:
  • List contraindications/considerations for hot stone massage

  • Demonstrate how to use a stone to treat myofascial tissue and trigger points
  • Demonstrate proper body mechanics
Therapeutic Anti-Aging Face and Neck Massage (this is a 4 CE course) This comprehensive training combines the best of both worlds – anti-aging facial massage plus therapeutic massage of the neck and face. Gentle yet precise strokes using stones, both warm and cold, will relax muscles, tone and tighten the face, and stimulate collagen and elastin production. Relieving tension in the face, jaw and neck will visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles.  Our technique combines acupressure to stimulate the nerves in the face with a series of vertical and horizontal moves to relax facial muscles and connective tissue, increase blood flow and stimulate lymph drainage.  We will work specifically with the muscles of the jaw, face, and neck to address tension in the jaw, headaches, and tension held in the neck. The use of organic pomegranate oil will encourage cell rejuvenation and moisturize and tone the epidermis with its unique omega-5 fatty acid, polyphenols and inherent delivery system. Students will learn how to heat or cool stones to the proper temperature to achieve our desired therapeutic outcome: deep muscle relief without causing tissue trauma. And they will learn how to clean their stones for client safety. The contraindications of hot stone massage will be reviewed and we will discuss ways to alter sessions to accommodate certain conditions. Course Objectives: At the end of this workshop, students will be able to:
  • Demonstrate how to properly hold and use a stone without compromising their wrists or hands
  • Describe the benefits of using stones hot or cold
  • Explain how to regulate stone temperature
  • Identify how to introduce cold stones into the massage
