Product Description

Instructor: Brian Utting, LMT; NCBTMB #451040-09

Day 1 (Assessment and Treatment of the Neck Ligaments)

The neck is one of the most common areas of client complaint, injury and dysfunction, and it can be a challenging area to treat effectively. Injured or irritated neck ligaments can be particularly vexing; besides causing deep pain, they can provoke a guarding response in the nearby muscles, causing additional pain, tension, and limitation of movement.

In this class we will explore the deeper terrain of the neck, concentrating on the key ligamentous and related muscular and fascial structures that, when injured, often create chronic neck pain and tension. The cervical ligaments are every bit as important as the muscles, bones, and fascia, but are often overlooked by massage therapists, chiropractors and physical therapists.

You will learn assessment and palpation skills that will help you to identify the ligamentous structures that need treatment, make sure it is appropriate to do so, and treat the injured structures. A primary focus of this class is to help you refine your accuracy in both palpation and treatment, and to help you develop more confidence, specificity and thoroughness in your neck assessment and treatment. Clients notice the difference right away when they feel you touch the "right spots", and their chronic pain and tension begins to dissolve from the inside out.

What to Bring: Set of sheets; pillow or bolster; 2 washcloths; gelpack that can fit around your neck and a pillow case for the gelpak; 6 colored pencils or highlighters (no pens); wear loose clothing.  For PPE, bring 2 facemasks (disposable surgical mask or N95/KN95 respirator – only one should be required per day, the extra is back-up), eye protection and clothing protection (apron, smock or 2 sets of scrubs) are required.

Day 2 (Introduction to Visceral and Abdominal Massage)

A lot of our clients suffer from chronic rotator cuff injuries that seem to stubbornly persist using conventional massage techniques.  Learn precise and specific techniques to identify and successfully treat some of the most common injuries to the subscapularis, long head of the biceps, supraspinatus, infraspinatus, and teres minor.  The class will include:

  • a review of the rotator cuff anatomy
  • assessment techniques for each of the muscle/tendon groups
  • palpation review of the rotator cuff and related shoulder structures
  • treatment techniques to both improve the injured soft tissue and to improve the range and quality of motion of the gleno-humeral joint

What to Bring: Set of sheets; pillow or bolster, pillow case, hair clip, wear loose clothing.  For women:  please bring a pillow case for a breast drape along with a hair clip.  For Men: with our new regulations regarding coverage of the chest/breasts, please be prepared to sign a release allowing your chests/breasts to be uncovered during the treatment portion of the class, or bring a pillow case along with a hair clip for a breast drape.  For PPE, bring 2 facemasks (disposable surgical mask or N95/KN95 respirator – only one should be required per day, the extra is back-up), eye protection and clothing protection (apron, smock or 2 sets of scrubs) are required.
