Massage and Reflexology for High Performance Feet
Performance means many things: Strength, Endurance, Flexibility, Adaptability, Intelligent Movement and Fluidity. Many of our clients demand optimal performance from their Feet and this is how to give it to them. Certified Reflexologist Tom Maxson, LMBT from Hands on Health will teach you techniques from Reflexology to understand how the feet connect to the whole body, Sports Massage and Connective Tissue techniques to prepare the feet to move optimally under specific strain patterns from repetitive stress, and Traditional Thai Massage techniques to invigorate and energize fatigued, immobilized feet.

The class will be fun, interactive, and full of info to make your work easier and your results faster and more meaningful.
3 Dimensional Flexibility
This is not just another Stretching class. This is a combination of the best of the best practices from many movement modalities, to help you provide comfortable, effective bodywork to your clients who need to move without restriction. We live in a 3 dimensional world and our Nervous System is capable of feeling and adapting to stimuli from all angles and directions. You will learn to take advantage of neuroscience to subtly encourage improved joint function, without resorting to torturous stretching and pulling techniques that make the client to feel like they have to recover after they leave the treatment room. Certified Myoskeletal Alignment Therapist: Posture and Pain Specialist Tom Maxson, LMBT will teach you how to mix Eastern principles of Breathing and Balance with Western principles of Neurology and Kinesiology to create, safe, pain-free (for you and your client), lasting movement in the Muscles and Fascia.

The Upper Body class will focus on Balancing the Soft Tissues of the Spine and creating movement in the Shoulders and Arms, in addition to releasing Respiratory Muscles.
The Lower Body class will focus on Balancing the Soft Tissues of the Hips and Pelvis to allow for comfortable, optimal movement of the Legs and Feet.
Myofascial Release: Fascia Fundamentals
Learn the basics of how the Muscles and Fascia work together to create movement and structure, using easy to understand examples and images (like lava, jello, sausage, and suspension bridges), then use that insight to assess and restore soft tissue imbalance, using gentle, comfortable techniques. You will be able to give your clients lasting relief, even for chronic challenges, while giving them a profound treatment that they actually enjoy, instead of a deep tissue beating that they have to suffer through.
Zoned Out Foot Reflexology
Learn to relieve stress and create balance in the 5 Zones of the body, including the Head, Shoulders, Upper GI, Lower GI, and Legs, by gently working the Feet. The Feet are connected to every part of the Body, and ultimately the Brain, via the Nervous System.

Learn how to give a powerfully effective treatment without killing your Thumbs! 300hr Certified Reflexologist Tom Maxson, LMBT will teach you techniques from Western Reflexology based on Zone Therapy of the Nervous System, added to some Psychology and Neuroscience, to create a truly Zen-like experience for your clients.
