Spinal Reflexology

This workshop takes an in-depth look at nervous system foot reflexes covering aspects such as cranial nerves, spinal nerves, nerve plexuses and an introduction to Metamorphosis. Furthermore, we identify nerves directly associated with the foot; focusing on foot nerve pain and practising to distinguish between a sensitive nerve and a sensitive reflex.  Spinal Reflexology can be an invaluable form of therapy to address both physical and emotional imbalances. This therapy can form an entire treatment or part of a treatment sequence.

The workshop includes comprehensive instruction, a detailed manual and hands on sessions.

Lunch is provided.

IAIM Infant Massage Instructor's Certification Training

Infant Massage is a traditional parenting practice in India and many other parts of the world, where generations of mothers have offered this nurturing touch to their babies. It provides a loving connection between parent and baby starting early in life, supporting and strengthening this attachment as baby grows.

This 4 day intensive training session is designed for nurses, physiotherapists, massage therapists, child care educators or anyone who shows the aptitude and willingness to promote infant massage.

The certification enables the participant to teach parents and caregivers how to massage their babies and will be recognized in over 50 countries where IAIM exists. Visit www.iaim.net for more information.

Unwind the Belly with Chi Nei Tsang Fundamentals

Unwind the Belly with Chi Nei Tsang Fundamentals

4 days, 06-09 Oct 2017, Providence Renewal Centre, Edmonton

Have you ever been drawn to work at the body core? You somehow know the belly is the root of your client’s issues, but you don't have the training or confidence to work there safely. Here is your class.

Chi Nei Tsang (pronounced chee-nayt-song) is a traditional Oriental visceral bodywork that was introduced to North America only 35 years ago. CNT works to balance and invigorate the internal organs gently and effectively, and improves emotional and physical digestion. These cutting edge Taoist techniques shared are superb for clients suffering from IBS or digestive issues. Many musculoskeletal issues will fade. Clients will report constipation, headaches, anxiety, acid reflux, and certain back and shoulder problems have diminished as you apply what you have learned.

The three pillars of CNT are breathwork, applied qigong, and beautiful manual technique – all three are addressed in each absorbing workshop. The workshops are punctuated with qigong and theory, but distinguished by the clear demonstrations that precede hands-on lab work.  In instructor Peter TS Melnychuk’s September 2014 Chi Nei Tsang Fundamentals Workshop, student evaluations rated Presentation – 9.4/10, Quality of Content – 9.8/10.

CNT Fundamentals is set up to provide you with the skills to do a basic treatment. Each day we begin with the basics of Chi Nei Tsang: connecting with the energies of heaven and Earth (through qigong) & building qi (life force) in your own body, and learning how to use that extra chi to assist your client.

The focus of Days 1 & 2 is the Metal organs, the organs of elimination -- the skin, the lungs, and the large intestine. There is an emphasis on the expansion and repatterning of the client's breathing. You learn to entrain your client to a parasympathetic state. As their nervous system calms, their response to your work improves.

We refine our palpation skills, locate & distinguish stagnation, find physical & emotional charges that burden the body. We become sensitized to clients’ barriers, & learn why to never transgress them. We also learn the amazing protocol of Opening the Wind Gates -- a way to not only diminish bloating, but release stagnation that has been trapped in the body.

Days 3 & 4 focus on protocols and ancient touch techniques that work with the energies of the Earth (pancreas, stomach, spleen, duodenum) and Wood organs (the liver and gall bladder).

We complete the class with each student practicing and then receiving a guided 45 minute CNT session which features a flow sequence of the powerful techniques learned. After completing CNT Fundamentals you have the skills to tailor 3rd, 4th, and 5th sessions for your clients' specific vulnerabilities.

Each student receives an invaluable workbook with room for notes, complete with photos, diagrams, and brief descriptions of the taught techniques.

There is no prerequisite for this class. For Certification Track (Chi Nei Tsang Institute, Berkeley, CA) the prerequisite is the highly recommended Healing Tao Basics (one evening, one day 04-05 Oct 2017). The CNT Fundamentals is the prerequisite for Advanced CNT (09-12 Nov 2017, Edmonton), as well as Healing the Emotional Body with Chi Nei Tsang (a 5 day workshop retreat, dates TBA 2018).
