In 1998, Michael began his career as a massage and movement educator. While he has facilitated a broad spectrum of classes, his current teaching focus is in musculoskeletal anatomy, kinesiology, clinical and outcome based massage, professional ethics and communication. His passion for helping students discover the human body and how it moves makes him a demanding musculoskeletal anatomy instructor. However, Michael’s ability to temper high standards with his sharp wit, a keen appreciation for fun, and commitment to creativity make him a student favorite.⁠

We are proud to be located in Cap Hill. Our voice stands with the culture this diverse and beautiful neighborhood represents. We know how difficult these times are, but real change rarely comes without hardship. We continue to stand with our community and black lives.
・・・
Until yesterday, every night in our neighborhood looked like this. Lines of militarized police units gathered to stand off with protestors outside the East Precinct with a helicopter flying overhead. Yesterday, the police presence disappeared, leaving what has come to be known as the #capitolhillautonomouszone. ⁠

The status quo of sending police to solve every problem in the city is not working. The chilling sights of police in riot gear and military troops repeatedly using excessive force in our community perpetuates more violence and reinforces the call to defund the police. ⁠

We whole-heartedly believe changes are needed and we understand that such radical shifts require thoughtful discussion. To include your voice please send your thoughts to Seattle's City Council. They are meeting at 2PM today to discuss the city budget. You better believe these topics are on the table. ⁠

Some ideas that we've heard and liked include: a mental health and wellness department, peer mentoring department, food security teams, de-escalation team, remote medical technicians, crime reduction teams, public service workers, and public arts department. ⁠

Follow the link in our bio for a live stream of today’s City Counsel meeting. You can also check our stories today to see artist’s renderings of creative alternatives to policing as well as a links to send your own ideas to the City Counsel. ⁠

Resistance and Release Work for Neck & Shoulder with Trager Fundamentals with Deane Juhan

June 29, 2019 @ 8:00 am - June 30, 2019 @ 5:00 pm

$395

TRAGER PRINCIPLES WITH RESISTANCE AND RELEASE WORK

A Dynamic Addition to Your Massage Skills

Relaxation and stress relief are certainly two main goals of bodywork.  But there is an important addition to your clients’ somatic well-being that more directly addresses the patterns of muscular habituation, posture, compensations due to injury and the restoring of freedom of movement and freedom from pain, and that is the active re-education of the overall sensory motor patterns that have accumulated over time.

The work that will be presented in this workshop is an innovative approach developed by Deane Juhan, based in large measure upon the rehabilitative techniques of Dr. Milton Trager.

Functionally, we are really one muscle that is divided up by the connective tissue structures into different compartments in order to provide specific vectors of motion and coordinated groups of motor units.  We are not robots with hinges, cables and pulleys, but shape-changers, and any gesture involves the participation of wide-spread muscular synergies.

Resistance/Release work is an interactive approach between therapist and client designed to re-coordinate their musculature as a whole and to train more efficient and effective recruitment of muscular contraction and lengthening involved in any position or movement, from feet to head and from sleeve to core.  The result is dramatically improved muscular coordination, adding both ease and strength to all of our activities.

INSTRUCTOR:

Deane Juhan is the author of Job’s Body: A Handbook for Bodywork and Touched by the Goddess: the Physical, Psychological and Spiritual Powers of Bodywork.  He has been a professional bodyworker for 38 years, including 18 years as a member of the Esalen Massage Crew and 24 years as a student of Dr. Milton Trager and an instructor for The Trager Institute.  He has taught anatomy and physiology for bodyworkers of all kinds in the US, Canada, Europe and Japan, and is an NCBTMB approved provider.
