As an administrator and faculty member in higher education for twenty years, I love teaching and consider it the most important part of my practice whether I’m teaching the basics about posture to a client or complex research on fascia to health professionals. My approach to teaching is very practical. As a result, my students often connect to my teaching style. I like simplicity and action.
My focus is not just on teaching myofascial release techniques. I teach about fascia. It is now considered to be another body system. Understanding this system and its intricate relationship with all our other body systems is a critical layer to understanding health. If your fascia is healthy, your other body systems have the environment to function well. Therefore, my practice and the courses I offer all have a central thread of fascia wellness.
I am also a learner, an input and strategic (Clifton Strengths Finder). I love to learn about topics that interest me, such as fascia, gather as much as I can on that topic and integrate it into my practice to continually offer the best possible service to my clients. Now that I’m in my 30th year of practice I want to turn around and support all the amazing health and wellness professionals out there trying to be the best possible practitioner they can be.
I have three methods where you can learn from me and with me.
Live Courses: Learn more here.
I offer several courses for the public. Any course I offer to the public is also open to health and wellness professionals. If you let me know you need a certificate for the course, I will provide that for you.
I offer continuing education courses for all types of health and wellness professionals.
One to One Learning Sessions: Learn more here.
I love one to one teaching and learning. Health and wellness professionals can sign up for one to one sessions with me. During these sessions we can focus on practicing your skills by working on each other or do problem solving related to your clients. I’ve also had therapists use this time to discuss creating their own practice. I will create a certificate with your specific learning objectives so you can use this time as continuing education.
Therapists also have the option to treat clients with me. I have amazing clients who love to help me teach you. Plus, they get the experience of being treated by two therapists at the same time which is also a wonderful experience. To schedule this option, you must have taken my in-person workshop, been treated as a client by myself or a therapist I have trained, and completed at least one, one on one session with me. These must be scheduled directly with me at least one week in advance so that I can gain permission from my clients. You can stay for one session or stay the day. $50 per session. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up this option. I can issue a certificate for these sessions as well.
On-Demand Learning: Links below.
While teaching doctorate level therapists, my university also offered distance learning. Over time, this made me quite comfortable creating content and teaching online. I also completed a two-year e-learning fellowship which taught me so much about using technology to create high quality content which can be very challenging when teaching what we typically think of as “hands-on” skills.
I have so much to share with health and wellness professionals (and the public) that I have two platforms that support my content.
I have smaller courses and classes generally designed for the public. I can provide certificates for therapists and wellness professionals for each course. Therapists can learn about themselves as well as information that can support your work with your own clients. Find them here. Also check out the “store” while on this site for on-demand yoga, natural movement and other resources. Here is what you will find.
