Access Bars

Access Bars® Class

What gift could you be to your clients by adding this technique to your practice?
Have you ever wished or asked for something to change in your life? A relationship, a health issue, your money flows? Yet, no matter how hard you tried, you didn’t see the change you somehow knew was possible?
Well, what if one day could change your whole life? What if creating new possibilities and happiness was easy once you had the right toolbox to change things?
I’d love to have you at a 1 day workshop I’ll be facilitating soon on something called Access Bars.
What is Access Bars?  ‘The Bars’ is a touch point therapy that quiets the mind, brings us back into balance and creates ease, peace and a sense of well-being similar to a massage or meditation, except so much more.
What's class like?

​One day. A ton of tools. Choose what works for you. Receive 2 sessions of
bars. Give 2 sessions. Get a manual full of questions, techniques and a whole new toolbox of change. 
Breathe. Relax. Get Clarity. Be empowered to change anything!
What are the benefits of having your Bars ‘run’?
●FUN, PEACE, JOY & EASE in every aspect of your life

SensoriMotor Retraining Technique

A Comprehensive Approach to Assessment, Treatment & Therapeutic Exercise

Laurie Di Giulio, Developer/Facilitator

Massage Therapist
NKT Practitioner, Level 3 Personal Trainer, Yoga Instructor Educator, Conference Presenter

Course Description

SensoriMotor Retraining Technique is a combination of assessment, treatment, and corrective exercise using an approach informed by Vleeming's 5 kinetic chains, role of ligaments as sensory organs, and pairing sensory change with improved motor outputs.

This two day course will include discussion of important anatomical structures that make up the kinetic chains and how to assess these structures in a simple, sequential way to identify a framework for approaching corrections/treatment. Attendees will explore the role of ligaments in these kinetic chains, and how they contribute to optimal or dysfunctional movement patterns and what this means to our practice as manual therapists or fitness professionals. We will access ligaments using tools or touch to alter sensory input and cause reflexive affects in other tissues, followed by integration of movement patterns to improve function and manage pain. This course is appropriate for manual therapists and fitness professionals.

Course Goals

Students who complete this course will be able to:

  • Identify the value of movement assessment, and how to integrate it into practice.
  • Assess movement related to the five kinetic chains.
  • Identify and assess ligaments, joint capsules and muscles involved in movement dysfunctions.
  • Treat/stimulate a target ligament, joint capsule, or muscle to improve motor control.
  • Make recommendations for individualized home care that combines ligament/joint capsule/muscle stimulation and therapeutic exercise drills to improve treatment outcomes.
  • Establish and understand the role of a treatment hierarchy, and its importance in improving quality of care.

Required Texts, Materials, or Equipment

Course notes will be provided.
Attendees may want to have anatomy references available.
Attendees may wish to bring tools they use in practice (ex. IASTM tools, foam rollers). Massage tables may be required, dependent on location of course.

Cupping Massage is a 2 day workshop designed to teach massage therapists how to incorporate cupping massage therapy into their daily practice. Massage therapists will learn the theory of cupping, as well as the practical skills to perform a full body cupping massage treatment. Cupping massage has been used for thousands of years in traditional chinese medicine for the treatment of muscular pain. It is easy to perform and provides deep muscular relief with minimal effort from the massage therapist. It is a great addition to any massage therapy practice to take the strain of a deep tissue massage off the therapist and still provide a deep muscular release for their patients.

In this workshop the therapist will learn:

  • the history, benefits and contraindications of cupping
  • how cupping massage affects the muscles, blood, lymphatic and nervous system
  • how to explain cupping massage to their patients and incorporate it into their practice
  • how to perform glass fire cupping, plastic pump cupping and silicone/rubber cupping
  • how to use cupping massage to treat common trigger points and acupressure points
  • a general cupping massage routine for the back and neck, and limbs
  • how to customize cupping massage for their patients complaint to provide maximum relief

What students are saying:

This course was by far my most favorite in the ten years I've been practicing.  Not only was the content inspirational and changed my way of thinking as an RMT but Chantel was fantastic.  She's passionate, intelligent, well spoken and fun!!  You leave this weekend wanting more.
