Neck pain and injuries are often misunderstood. A searing pain in the shoulder blade, a burning sensation down the arm, and a numbing, crawling sensation in the hand can all be the result of injuries to various structures in the cervical region.

In this course, you will learn over 2 dozen orthopedic assessment tests to pinpoint various injuries from whiplash. We will then address the injuries through several different treatment modalities including friction therapy, myofascial therapy, muscle energy techniques, and Active Isolated Stretching for the neck. You will also learn how to physically locate and palpate each muscle, tendon, and ligament targeted with these treatment techniques.

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:​

  1. Calming Swedish massage strokes for deep muscle relaxation, tension release and increased circulation
  2. 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
  3. Deep tissue work 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, increase circulation to the placenta and baby and to increase awareness of the baby. The baby will feel and benefit from the massage.
  5. Lymph drainage strokes to reduce pregnancy induced edema
  6. Cranial-sacral and polarity therapy for physical/psychological/emotional/spiritual centering
  7. Aupressure and reflexology techniques shown to be effective in treating many common pregnancy related complaints

Learn one of the most highly respected systems of advanced clinical massage available today. Lowe’s training provides evidence-based and cutting-edge treatment techniques in addition to the critical assessment protocols that allow you to problem solve for the most effective treatment. These clinical skills have wide ranging applications from sports or work injuries to overall wellness massage.

Covers conditions and biomechanical issues of the upper back, cervical region, shoulder girdle, and upper extremities. We explore how these regions are fundamentally interconnected, and how conditions thought to be in the extremities can originate in the torso or cervical/ thoracic region. Treatment of common conditions of the upper body are taught. We also explore dysfunction in peripheral nerves, which can cause long term chronic pain. Treatment options cover a wide range of options, and are based on condition.
