Ann Catlin - Meeting the Needs of Older Adult Clients: On and Off Your Table

If you serve seniors, you must look beyond modifying massage techniques for an older body. The quality of service you provied "off the table" will go a long way towards building a lasting relationship with each client. You must understand how to adapt to functional changes. You will leave Ann's presentation with a working understanding of common functional impairments in older adults and practical solutions to making your clinic senior-friendly.

Dawn Lewis - Treating Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is defined as tingling, numbness, weakness, and/or pain caused by a median nerve impingement in the carpal tunnel.  These symptoms may be brought on by a misaligned carpal bone or a shortened flexor retinaculum.  But, it is also possible for the median nerve to be impinged upon in the forearm, at the elbow, or in the upper arm.  Please join us and learn to treat all the possible areas of impingement to truly relieve carpal tunnel symptoms.

  • Dawn Lewis

    Owner/Operator, Full Circle School of Alternative Therapies, Developer of SMRT

    Dawn developed SMRT while she was owner and educator at the Cottonwood School of Massage in Aurora, CO. SMRT, or Spontaneous Muscle Release Technique, is a series of passive contractions that allow therapists to release muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissue. Dawn explains: “I found that SMRT was more effective than Neuromuscular therapy, while also being easier on the client and the therapist. Between teaching anatomy and SMRT, and working on many, many, people, I was able to fully embrace this knowledge and take my massage to new levels.”
