M.) Treating the Source of Headache Pain & Resetting the Body After Trauma (Post Falls October 7-8, 2017)


Product Description

Instructor: Joe Rodin, LMP, Certified Trager Practitioner; NCBTMB #681

Day 1 -- Saturday (Treating the Source of Headache Pain)

Headaches refer to a broad range of pain experienced in the head and face. They derive from any combination of various structures including nerves, sutures, sinuses, arteries, muscles, and the functional and structural abnormalities. Sources can be both local and remote from the site of pain.

The key to treating headaches is finding the source of pain by asking the right questions during client intake, knowing headache type profiles and having accurate palpatory assessment skills. We can then differentiate among the many sources and types of headache and base our treatments accordingly.

In this workshop you'll learn to differentiate between facial, sutural, TMJ, neurologic, structural and vestibular causes that result in migraine, tension, sinus, cluster and other headaches; how to assess headache pain and how to treat headaches.

What to Bring: Set of sheets, pillow/bolster; wear loose clothing.

Day 2 -- Sunday (Resetting the Body After Trauma)

When trauma (both physical and mental) occurs, our bodies and minds wall off the effects, so we can continue to function. While this has survival value initially, over time it impales our innate sense of wholeness. These effects can include nervous system hyper-vigilance, rigid somatic patterning and conditioned emotional responses.

Through skillful touch and bodywork we can facilitate clients in releasing these effects, in becoming present in their bodies and learning to reunite with their experience of wholeness. In this class, you'll assist this process by learning to:

  • restore balance within the sensory-motor nervous system
  • attune and respond to clients with emphatic resonance both verbally and somatically
  • facilitate the release of unnecessary, protective patterning

Note:  The class, "Resetting the Body After Injury: The Missing Element for Treatment Resolution" although complementary to this class, is not the same class, so class content between the two classes has some limited shared information, but are different classes.

What to Bring: Set of sheets, pillow/bolster; wear loose clothing.
