Hello!  This weekend's Lower Body Stretching Class in Bellmore NY is going to be a blast! We still have space so if you are free come join in on the Learning, Sharing and Laughter!

Remember New Yorker's as of Jan 2012 the State now requires you to take Continuing Education ...do not wait until the last minute and be forced to take what is available not what you are interested in!

Sorry just saw your post today. I have worked with ankel replacements, plates, rebuilds and knee replacements.  Anything I can help with?

Happy Holidays to all!

Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) Upper Body

 

 Location: Swedish Institute (NYC)

 

In this two-day workshop, participants will focus on the upper body and neck. We  will review muscle action and function, along with AIS principles for stretching clients in a clinical setting. We will explore the deepest tissues of the body with precision and with movements that increase the flow of blood and oxygen to over-contracted and over-stretched tissues. This class is based on Aaron Mattes’ 40 years of experience in soft tissue rehabilitation. We will review some self-help stretching as well as strengthening protocols for therapists’ longevity. If you are working in a clinical environment or want to, this work can change your approach forever.

 

Date: Saturday and Sunday, Jan 22-23, 2011 

 

 Class Time: 9:00AM-6:00PM

 

 

 

CEs: 16 NCBTMB, NCCAOM

Just started to work with a man in his 60'es who just came out of his cast after an ankle replacement and one today who 3 weeks ago had a double knee replacement.

Anyone ever work with a client who has had an ankle replacement?

My home town workshop! Looking forward to meeting LMT in the Tri-State area.

Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) Lower Body

Location: Swedish Institute (NYC)

Open to Massage Therapists.

In this two-day workshop, participants will focus on the lower body (including the feet). We will review muscle action and function, along with AIS principles for stretching clients in a clinical setting. We will explore the deepest tissues of the body with precision and with movements that increase the flow of blood and oxygen to over-contracted and over-stretched tissues. This class is based on Aaron Mattes’ 40 years of experience in soft tissue rehabilitation. We will review some self-help stretching as well as strengthening protocols for therapists’ longevity. If you are working in a clinical environment or want to, this work can change your approach forever.

Hi Charlie,
Thank you for asking. They are in the works. Between traveling for seminars, private practice and oh yeah life in general there is just so much that can get done in a day! If you can not make it to a class then think about bringing one to you. Just give Aaron or myself a call. Nothing I would like better then to have AIS spread across Indiana and continue right on out to the rest of the world!

Marjorie,
Do you offer this material on DVD? I'm sure many therapist just like myself can't make these classes and were wondering if it might be available on DVD.
Cheers!

Fall Greetings!

My favorite time of year is here and I have lots to share. With the state of the economy everyone is hard pressed financially. It is becoming harder and harder to afford taking the time off to attend CEU classes. With this in mind I am launching a new program. Retreat and Learn. I will be offering class at Retreats or in Resort areas. You will not only be learning in a comfortable setting but have the chance to take the much needed time to relax and renew. Basically a working vacation.

The classes will be offered in the full three day weekend format and the new Series format. The series format will be four, one day classes offered one Saturday a month for four months. Keeping in mind that things in life happen, the series will be offered more than once in each location so if you miss a Saturday you can make it up in the next grouping. The monthly classes will be kept small, no more than 15 per class.

Currently booked locations include:

2010: Stoweflake Mountain Resort and Spa , Stowe Vermont

Three day -Active Isolated Stretching Lower Body

The Dreaming Tree, Wholistic Healing Sanctuary, Northport, New York

One Day Scar Tissue Release - organic lunches included.

2011: Rose Springs Center for the Healing Arts ,Hillsboro Oregon

Three day Scar Tissue Release and Active Isolated Stretching Lower Body

The Dreaming Tree, Wholistic Healing Sanctuary, Northport, New York

For more details & class dates checkout my website. I am very excited about this new program and looking forward to sharing the experience with you!

There still several more classes left for 2010

October 9-11 Missoula, Montana for three days of Scar Tissue and AIS

October 23-25 Hershey, Pennsylvania - Stretching Chocolate and Fright Night at the Park what more could you ask for? Oh Yeah how about some Scar Tissue Release as well!

October 31 Westport, Connecticut - What better time to take a serious look at Scar Tissue than Halloween?

November 5-7 Stowe, Vermont- Skiing and lower body stretching - a perfect match

And finally a last minute addition to the year

November 13th Northport New York -Scar Tissue Release class - retreat style



Have questions? Any Suggestions? Please feel free to call or e-mail me.
