Everything from Bottom of the Ribcage up, including mid & upper back, shoulders, upper extremities, neck, head, face, and TMJ.

Neural Reset Therapy® is a fun and easy approach to getting rid of muscular pain and tightness. It is easy on the therapist because it uses no thumbs or elbows. No stretching is required. 

Imagine being able to eliminate all the trigger points, bands, and nodules for all of the upper body in less than the time you are now spending on the upper trapezius, levator scapula, and the area between the scapulae. Could you even do this without massaging or stretching anything?

NRT will teach you an ingenious way of how to use the nervous system to release the muscles. In this upper body class, you will learn how to apply established neurological/physiological laws to quickly banish the pain and tightness found in dysfunctional muscle tissue.

Step into the 21st century and practice manual therapy that yields rapid and reliable results that will please your clients and will greatly reduce the wear and tear on the therapist’s body.

Attendance Policy: Must attend at least 90% the advertised course hours (time) to receive offered CE Hours. No partial hours can be awarded. (Sorry – NCBTMB Rules)

Class Description:

Whatever the body is doing, it continues to the face. Face Therapy is a blend of highly effective massage techniques applied throughout the session to address the subtle and invisible aspects of our lifestyles that manifest in the neck, face, shoulders and in other parts of our bodies. The facial muscles, the neck and shoulders are the most neglected muscles of the body. Face Therapy supports their need to be touched and massaged in order to neutralize the signs of aging and open areas of the body where repetitive injury is setting in, causing muscles to shorten and nerve conductivity to become unbalanced.

Face Therapy restores the skin’s radiance while it tones the muscles and creates a safe and effective method of treating the problem of sagging, aging skin, repetitive injury and nerve impingement without surgery. The massage strokes penetrate the deeper layers of the facial skin and the underlying muscles. The extensive uplifting massage of the face, neck, shoulders and upper back, help to combat the signs of aging, sun damage and dramatically improve the skin’s appearance, the client’s overall posture, muscle tension and nerve conductivity.

Students will have a thorough understanding of the connectedness of the face, neck and shoulders to the rest of the body. They will understand and know how to do massage strokes to support improved circulation to the face, neck and shoulders; understand causes and how to work with adhesions and tension patterns in the face; understand and be able to use a variety of hydrotherapy techniques with hot towels for lymphatic drainage, stress release, and oil or cream removal from the face.

Class Objectives

Scrubbing the Body:

A Body Scrub session stimulates the lymphatic & circulatory system by exfoliating dead skin cells with a gentle, but brisk, body scrubbing/brushing. This opens skin pores, releases toxins & takes in oxygen while creating vitality. Skin scrubbing/brushing can sustain or reestablish the skin’s functional integrity and youthful glow. It aids in waste removal, helps slow the skin’s aging process, increases circulation, even improves digestion and alleviates muscular tension. As such, skin brushing is a particularly powerful therapy, which can positively affect the entire body.

Scalp Massage with Hot Oil Hair Therapy:

Warm oil hair and scalp massage can be wonderfully relaxing for the mind and nervous system and help relieve headaches and migraines. Massaging the scalp and hair with warm oil is best way to nourish the scalp and hair topically. It relaxes the mind and nervous system as oils and herbs provide excellent deep moisturizing and nourishing benefits. Head massage enhances blood circulation in the head and neck area and helps promote sound sleep at night. When the scalp is “tight” from stress, circulation and hair growth are impeded. Regular scalp massage can increase the amount of the natural body oil, sebum produced in the hair follicle.
