Practice mindfulness/sensory awareness through different Dance forms : Salsa, Argentine Tango, Flamenco, Folk dances, and Classical Russian Ballet.

The hands-on protocols presented are simple, yet profound in their impact. They range from MFR and Muscle Energy to CS , SomatoEmotional  release and Visceral Manipulations . 

This course addresses 3 major concepts:
1. Dance - a vehicle for maintaining the healing effect achieved during bodywork sessions
2. Integrative Bodywork - integrate your manual therapy skills in a cohesive approach when working with clients with Arthritis, Osteoporosis, Lymphedema, Parkinson's disease, Cancer, and Postural/Mmotor Imbalances
3. Nurturing the Bodyworker and the Dancer in you - keeps the Compassion Syndrome away

Attire/Supplies:
Wear loose comfortable clothes and shoes for dancing (preferably Tap or Flamenco shoes).
Bring a flat sheet you are willing to sacrifice for becoming a canvas for artwork.
And, bring Your Body&Soul...

Neck Anatomy and Technique
with Dan Wood



In this class we will explore the neck, common conditions that affect this area, and what we can do to address these conditions.  The course begins with a review of neck anatomy.  Next, we will have a discussion on the techniques and the conditions that are best paired with each technique. Participants will learn to use myofascial release, body mobilization, deep frictioning, pin and stretch, and stretching to address neck dysfunction.  These techniques will be applied with intensity appropriate for each participant.  Although the techniques you will learn can be used with a great deal of pressure, this should not be confused with a deep tissue class.  Our goal is to coax the neck into cooperation, not beat it into submission.  Emotional concerns involved in neck massage will also be covered.
