Presented by Aran Bright
In this workshop you will be introduced to an assessment and treatment process, using gentle dynamic movement to increase range of motion, improve motor control and develop confidence and awareness of movement. The day will include functional movement assessment to guide the prescription of movements that target the needs of the individual. This can be used as both a self-care tool for therapists and a clinical tool for clients and patients.
We will also include a brief summary of how active movement approaches fit within recent developments in pain science, including approaching therapy from a biopsychosocial perspective. The workshop focuses on gentle, yet dynamic movement approaches that will leave you feeling freer within your body and armed with new strategies for self-care and client management.
Presented by Jenny Richardson
The feet are the base for the rest of the body. Do you know how to really get someone's whole foot moving again, not just the range of motion at the ankle? Learn how to assess the movement of the foot and ankle, mobilise the joints and work on fascial densifications that restrict ROM. Understand how the patterns of movement of the foot affect the knee, hip and upper body. Feet are fun - you can see a lot of change in a short time if you know where to go to find the restrictions.
Presented by Michael Solano
What if everything you knew about breathing and anatomy was thrown out? In this workshop, Michael will share some insights from his explorations of embryology, specifically how having an understanding of the concept of form following function has revolutionised his approach to treatment. He will lead you through a series of palpatory exercises and techniques that will change the way you examine and treat your patients. You will discover aspects of the sternum and upper ribs that will unlock spinal and cervical tensions more effectively than hours of massage. A combination of myofascial and post-isometric release techniques will be applied to the different layers of the thorax, cervical spine and diaphragm.
We’re pleased to announce that AMT’s Annual General Meeting will take place at 5pm on May 6 in Perth. We will also be hosting two one-day workshops around the AGM - Jenny Richardson will present her well-received workshop from last year’s AMT conference,"Tricky Tarsals". Colin Rossie will then present "Working the nerves of the lower limb".
On May 28, the Australian Association of Massage Therapists (AAMT) announced its intention to establish a scheme it refers to as ‘AAMT Certification’.
AMT is currently offering a special deal to therapists transferring from another association. Transfer to AMT now and we will give you an extra three months on your first year of membership with us. This means that if you join in June 2016 you won’t need to renew until September 2017.
