  • Attract more ideal clients authentically and never feel like you're having to sell.

Learn from a therapist who turned her job into a lifestyle that allows her to work from anywhere, doing what she loves.
I took all the aspects of my life that were non-negotiable and used that as my business model. I teach high ticket one on one, group and occasionally in person from anywhere in the world I wish, since 2010.
I'm not anyone famous, in fact I'm kind of private.
I'm not saying it's easy, but that it's worth it.
From where you are right now, turn it into a profitable lifestyle you love. If I can do it, so can you.
I learned a lot of new skills, mostly strategy that changed how I do business into how I get to live my life.
I have a body/mind approach to my business that resonates with therapists. Being in alignment with your values has a lot to do with what's going on in your life. I bring the two together for authentic results and to find balance body, mind and in your business

Do what you love, love what you do, and the money will always be there.

FMRT Level I (Functional Myofascial Release Therapy)

Saskatoon, SK

FMRT Level I (Functional Myofascial Release Therapy)

6 seats left in the Saskatoon class (maximum 10 per class).

Click here to download the poster which contains more course details and event dates.

This course was created to educate manual therapists not only how to assess and treat patients and their pain, but also to address the postural dysfunctions that are causing it. Participants will truly begin to learn how to master the assessment, treatment and repatterning of the fascia that is causing the pain and dysfunction. A detailed focus on eliminating the dysfunction with specific strength and stretch protocols will also be addressed throughout each module of the course.

My myofascial release techniques have been created and refined over the last 16 plus years of practice to effectively address patterned fascial restriction and biomechanical dysfunction. The course uses detailed descriptions of Thomas Myers 12 myofascial meridians and the basic understanding of the anatomy of fascia and its direct correlation with patterns of restriction that cause pain.

This course contains a detailed postural assessment from standing to table and vice versa. Throughout each module, there will be coverage of indications and contraindications with each meridian and technique. A complete exercise and stretching protocol to help your clients enhance the effects after each treatment will also be taught.

This three-day course will outline my FMRT theory and educate each therapist on the specific hands-on techniques I have created to dramatically increase the overall health and function of your clients. The first level will provide a theoretical postural, and structural understanding of your client, how therapists can work safely and more efficiently and how you can use FMRT in aiding the human body to move in a happy healthy way.

I have had good success with students taking this type of training for both courses in the past and I will keep this training to only those who are already working as massage therapists (IHM) and reflexologists/massage therapists (IFM) so everyone will be on the same page so to speak.

Training this way is easier than you would expect it to be and the in-class times are a bit shorter with nice big breaks. Also, students who take ONLINE training are offered a one hour one on one follow up after the fact and are welcome to attend an in-person class where they can experience the treatment at a later date.

Understanding the Complexity of Concussion

Live online via Zoom

www.conorpcollins.com/courses

October 23 and 24, 2021
$397.00
12 primary credits - MTAS members
 

Course Description

Therapists are often intimidated when dealing with concussed patients. It’s easy to become flustered when assessing the patient and how to treat their concussion symptoms appropriately. Even the health care system occasionally provides patients with misguided and outdated information, often telling them to sit and wait in a dark room until they feel better. This course equips you with the most current understanding of concussion and how to properly assess, treat, and rehab your patients.

The goal of the first day is for the therapist to leave feeling confident in their understanding of, and ability to treat mild traumatic brain injury. By the end of day one, you will be able to recognize red flags, properly assess the patient, and identify when it is time to refer them to another healthcare provider.

The goal of the second day is to provide the therapist with rehabilitation strategies for concussion, including most up-to-date advice on patient symptom management. The morning of day two finishes with an in-class case study or a live patient (if available), while the afternoon deals with common headache types suffered by post-concussion patients and how to properly address them. The afternoon also focuses on the assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of the cervical spine. By the end of the weekend, you are ready for success. You will have plenty of resources and techniques to help you tailor your treatment to the patient in front of you.

The course is approved by every Massage Therapy College and Association in Canada.
