10:00 am Susan Salvo - Throw away the SOAP!

Use PPALM instead.  PPALM is the best form of documentation available.  It is simple and appropriate for any practice setting, from spas to medical clinics, to private practice - even at sports events. Join massage expert Susan Salvo as she discusses how to use PPALM to screen clients for contraindications and formulate treatment plans.

11:30 am Heath & Nicole Reed - Table Thai Yoga Massage: Dynamic Stretching & Loving Kindness

Join us as we practice Yoga stretching with our massage tables, and perform ancient Thai healing techniques that "feel good to give, and feel good to receive". Infuse your practice with loving kindness-or what the Thais call "Metta"-as you experience safe and profound ways to gracefully move yourself and your clients around the table.

2:45 pm Bob & Melanie Sachs - Reflexology: Ancient and Modern Theory and Practice

Bob and Melanie will explain the theory of Reflexology and demonstrate technique in this 90 minute presentation. There will be a strong emphasis on the comfort of both therapist and client.

4:15 pm Andrea Lipomi - Ethics Schmethics? The Connection between Massage Ethics & Hospitality

5:45 pm Carrie Rowell - Introduction to Hawaiian Lomi Lomi

You will be introduced to some of the different styles of Hawaiian Massage.  We start with a full body sequence called clearing the path, a powerful tool for creating space and removing blockage that can be done anywhere, followed by some of the unique long flowing strokes that weave together sections of the body.
