About Our Presenters

This spring we have 2 presenters for you to choose from, Jason Erickson and Sara Pierce.

Jason Erickson teaching Introduction into Dermoneuromodulation for Pain Relief  (NCBTMB approved 6 CEUs)

This workshop introduces massage therapist to practical applications of modern pain science concepts based upon the Neuromeric theory of pain and the biopsychosocial model of therapy. Dermo neuromodulation  (DNM) provides an updated conceptual framework for massage therapists to better understand pain and to alleviate it.

Hands-on techniques focus on gentle skin stretching to stimulate non-nociceptive sensory pathways and trigger a down regulation of pain and neural sensitization. Participants learn simple methods for addressing common problem areas around the neck, shoulders, back, hips and extremities.

Sara Pierce teaching Presence: Bringing Mindfulness to Massage

In this class you will develop therapeutic skills to remain in present time awareness with our clients and ourselves. This approach is especially useful for clients who experience chronic illness or pain, PTSD, stress or anxiety and addiction recovery.

Peace is      A kind word,       A gentle touch,      Compassionate understanding,
Clear boundaries,     And      Respectful support of one another.
We find peacefulness within ourselves.

All this requires daily conscious awareness of ourselves. My mission is for each of us to live our purpose. The possibility of that is much greater in peace.
