Continuing Education/Upgrading

Continuing Education/Upgrading

Continuing education is an integral part of any vocation today.

Registered Massage Therapists have mandatory credits to get every 3 years. However; I have had a passion for learning and finding our more about the mystery of the human body all my life.

This spring I took a cadaver class where we were studying the brain. It was fascinating and I clearly understand when it is said we only use 10% of our brain. What a “Motherboard” the human brain is.

I took 3 levels of craniosacral therapy 25 years ago from Upledger Institute. They have updated their curriculum in 2010. Cranial Sacral Therapy helps with headaches, motor vehicle accidents, concussions and trauma. Plus; it does address deep pain or tightness in the muscular system and supplies mental clarity.

Sometimes clients will experience emotional releases when having cranial or deep tissue massage. While in class we will be learning and exploring tissue memory and whole body diagnosis.

I am very committed to explore this field and upgrade to the present day understanding. There is a course in Edmonton which I will be attending September 15-18.

I will take one day of sport massage with James Waslaski on September 19. I took some classes from him 20 years ago. It will be exciting to see what he has added to his repertoire. Sport massage is a love of mine. I am a Certified Sports Massage Therapist with http://www.csmta.ca/

Although I am not free to travel to events as I once did I want to keep on the cutting edge of Sport Massage. Sport Massage will keep you in the game longer and with less injuries.

I am a committed lifelong learner so you may all benefit.

My Passion, My Vision, My Dream of a European Spa

I have a passion for natural wellness. I believe in living a healthy, active and balanced lifestyle.

After providing and completing 20 years of service in Massage Therapy to the community of Unity. I had the desire to add more value to my services.

I pursued Massage Therapy as a career because of all the help I received 38 years ago. I was so grateful and I wanted to help half as many people as the late Grace Thain from Mid Night Lake had helped over the span of 40 years. I believe I would and have provided a great service to Unity and District.

Once again I was faced with psoriasis and checked out all the options for treatment, there was little out there for me to choose from. Through research I found European Spas offered natural treatments for psoriasis. Twenty years ago there was no training in Saskatchewan so I ventured to acquire the training that I needed.

I went to Raleigh, South Carolina, and Minneapolis to get and understand developing a Spa. I had a number of plans and dreams were grandiose. I continued pursuing training for spa services. I then traveled to Oakland, California to learn about body wraps and different kinds of mud and how to wrap. There is an art to this

I journeyed to Las Vegas to the I SPA (International Spa Association) and there I gained many contacts and was overwhelmed with all the choices one had to make regarding products from all over the world! Here I connected with a company call Moor, which offers the most amazing mud that I still use in the Spa today.

My next journey was to Santa Fe, New Mexico where a German couple came to teach the Kniepe method of spa treatments. It was fascinating and exciting to learn all the health benefits that could be addressed through the use of Hot and Cold Water Treatments under high pressure. Learning that all showers and baths should end with ice cold water for great health benefits.

Other amazing body treatments that I learned about and continue to provide at the Spa:

  • Body Brushing using natural bristle brushes
  • Body Wraps using linen material, European mud, peat and seaweed from all over the world and from different depths of the oceans
  • Hydrotherapy using the Kniepe Method

These body treatments will help with different skin problems, calm nervous system reducing stress load on body, reduce swelling from legs, detoxify and re energize the body.

This in not magic or an overnight quick fix, it take time. To restore for body and to address any ailments the body has it take time. We suggest doing 6 consecutive treatments as well as setting up a specific home care system for 30 days. It is absolutely regenerating and reviving experience.

I continue to attend yearly Spa conferences in Vancouver or Vegas. One has to keep up with the industry. When I travel I go and experience different spa treatments to see what they are like and see if I would bring them into my spa.

Today there are many “Spas” but few that offer the treatment with water or all the mud treatments.

Call and Book your Body Wraps/ Exfoliation or Hydrotherapy Treatments.

Experience all of this right here in Unity!

Why a Registered Massage Therapist?

Greetings from the solarium at Sunrise Wellness Spa!

I love to sit in the hammock and relax and reflect…

Today I would like to elaborate on the importance of going to a registered massage therapist (RMT).

An RMT has completed two years of massage therapy school and has passed the Board Exams of the Massage Therapy Association of Saskatchewan (MTAS).

The Provinces have worked hard to develop a high standard of massage education nationally. They have worked diligently with Insurance Companies and WCB and SGI to comply with the highest standard of massage education in Canada.

The Board exams are another safe guard of quality treatment you will receive.

When a therapist has passed the written and practical Board exam, the therapist then receives

designation of RMT and you as a client will then be able to be reimbursed by the many insurance  companies that cover massage therapy as well as WCB and SGI.

To maintain the designation of RMT the therapist must earn 40 credits through continuing education over a   window of 3 years. MTAS has approved many courses that one can choose from to upgrade and accumulate more tool for their tool kit, thus having a wide choice of methods to choose from when doing a massage treatment.

The Associations have worked with insurance companies and Blue Cross to assure them that the clients are receiving professional quality treatment for their accident injury and or health issues.

MTAS members must carry liability insurance as well..

I am passionate about continuing education and have traveled far and wide to take many courses that I was attracted to. It is so exciting and rewarding to gain such a diverse knowledge in this industry in order to give you the most effective treatment that most insurance companies will reimburse you for.

Gift Cards cannot be reimbursed through any insurance company or Blue Cross.

Check the designation of your massage therapist. Ask to see their certificate from MTAS.

Buyers Be Smart!

Thank you for reading!
