Shoulders Massage Therapy Class

Dynamic Integrative Therapies - All About the Shoulder

In this fun and interactive class, Tina will share her insights about how to treat the shoulder.

In this 2-day workshop, with 16 CEUs, we will delve into the shoulder, what anchors it down to keep it from having freedom of ROM, what causes pain, and how to work effectively to bring more health and freedom to the shoulder. We will look at its connection to the rest of the body and see how to zoom in and zoom out to see patterns and where to focus your work for the best results. Please call, text, or email me personally if you have questions about this workshop.

Upcoming Opportunities to Learn with Tina Heyer

In this 2-day workshop, we will delve into principles extracted from systems like Craniosacral Therapy, Visceral, and Neural Manipulation, to learn how to effectively work with the body’s innate rhythms to help health to express more fully. We will learn the importance of presence in our work, and how to dialogue well with the tissues of the human being under our hands, to increase fluid flow and balance, and to balance the autonomic nervous system, thereby helping our clients to have better overall health and a feeling of wellbeing. Please call, text, or email me personally if you have questions about this class.

In this class, you will learn how to free up restrictions in the pelvis. This is integral to good health. The pelvis is the foundation of the spine. Restrictions in the pelvis change the way the spine moves. A free pelvis can help your gut and reproductive health, and so much more.

Look at the anatomy of the pelvis & how it relates to the rest of the body. Learn techniques from many modalities of bodywork, like CranioSacral Therapy. Visceral Manipulation, and others. Check in with your body as you receive these techniques, and see how your body changes after each one.

Sign up for this class today, and come have fun learning with me!

Why is this important?

  • Embryologically, the diaphragm is a very important player in the whole body, and wields a lot of authority over all other structures.
  • It is an important fluid pressure modulator between body cavities.
  • It is important in breathing.
  • It is important in Autonomic Nervous System balance.
  • The diaphragm affects the health of the pelvis, the abdomen, the thorax, and even the cranium.
  • Anything that touches the diaphragm can cause shoulder pain.
  • The diaphragm has a huge role in “good posture.”

Join this class to learn techniques to help your clients to have better overall health by working on the diaphragm. You will also enjoy learning many ways to treat rib cage dysfunction, and you might be surprised how many problems you can fix for your clients that you didn’t even realize were related to ribs.
