U.) Lumbar & Sacral Ligaments and Deep Tissue Iliopsoas, Diaphragm & QL: Both Days (Post Falls May 19-20, 2018)


Product Description

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

Day 1 -- Muscle-Specific Deep Tissue Techniques for the Torso (Iliopsoas, Diaphragm, QL & Paraspinals)

The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that there are more than a million workers who suffer back injuries in a year, and that they account for about 20% of the total work-related injuries. Back pain can be debilitating for many, and even when it's just a nuisance, it can significantly impact quality of life for our clients. Massage can be a helpful tool in the recovery and rehabilitation process, but it is all too common for clients to receive massage that has a minimal impact on their pain and discomfort.

One of the things commonly missing is a better understanding of and ability to specifically palpate the terrain of the low back and sacrum, particularly connective tissue structures like the various supporting ligaments. These ligaments are every bit as important as the muscles, bones, and fascia, but are often overlooked by massage therapists, chiropractors, and physical therapists.

In this class, you will learn to palpate and treat some of the most commonly injured ligaments in the low back and pelvis, including the iliolumbar, intertransverse, sacroiliac, sacrotuberous, supraspinous, and interspinous ligaments, as well as a few key postural muscles.

What to Bring: Set of sheets, face cradle cover, pillow or bolster; wear loose clothing.

Day 2 -- Muscle-Specific Deep Tissue Techniques for the Iliopsoas, Diaphragm & QL

"The Core" is a popular term these days. You hear, "you must strengthen your core" quite often. These muscular structures support the core--they are integral to maintaining balance, structural alignment, ease of breathing, and the ability to function without lower back pain.

You will learn specific, potent, and effective Deep Tissue techniques to release the iliopsoas, diaphragm, quadratus lumborum, lower multifidus, and the lumbodorsal fascia. For each structure, several Deep Tissue techniques will be provided to give you multiple treatment choices when working with your clients. These are straightforward, muscle-specific techniques that can be immediately applied in practice. We will also focus on proper use of fingers, knuckles, and elbows for optimal results and to save wear and tear on joints.

What to Bring: Set of sheets, face cradle cover and 2 pillows; wear loose clothing. Women should either bring a pillow case for a breast drape; or, wear a covering bra or bikini top.
