Product Description

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

Day 1 -- Understanding the Somatic Nervous System and Proprioception

When we are at our best in a massage, we are skillfully engaged in a conversation with our client's nervous system, including the autonomic and somatic components. In this class we will focus on the somatic (musculoskeletal) nervous system, including proprioception, cortical-limbic (ie, conscious, unconscious, and emotional) influences, reflexes, guarding responses, coordination, and the gamma efferent system. This will be more than just a physiology lecture -- it's a course designed specifically for massage therapists. The focus will be on implications for bodywork, and how to skillfully and effectively apply this knowledge in your bodywork practice. You will gain a deeper understanding of the somatic nervous system, and how it applies to massage and to life. The course will go beyond what is typically taught in massage schools or in anatomy and physiology courses.

"The information was presented clearly and logically, and is all useful for me in my practice. I already notice more awareness in my work. It has increased my understanding of why I do what I do when I'm working." - Jennifer G.

What to Bring: Something to write with.



Day 2 -- Evaluation and Treatment of Shoulder Injuries

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; face cradle cover, pillow; wear loose clothing and bring a tank top if you have one for palpation and treatment
