Weekend Workshops

For other continuing education opportunities, please look at our other options.

In addition to longer programs, CRSMT also provides continuing education opportunities in the form of weekend workshops throughout the core curriculum of the Massage Therapy Program. These workshops allow us to take advantage of the many varied specialties of our Instructor staff and present a different assortment of workshops in each term.

Workshops are open to currently enrolled students, CRSMT alumni, and the wider community! Space is limited so please inquire promptly about availability.

Prenatal Massage

Kaysie Noll
16 Hours, $320
April 27-28, 2019

Description

Upon completion of this course, students will be able to discuss the benefits of pregnancy massage, identify the changes in the anatomy and physiology of the pregnant body, outline pregnancy by trimesters, and utilize positioning and massage techniques that will benefit the pregnant client. During the course we will practice demonstrated hands on techniques and learn how to utilize health intake forms designed for the pregnant client. We will prioritize the development of communication skills which will assist in creating a treatment plan for the pregnant client. Additionally, students will learn to define what constitutes a “high risk” pregnancy and identify contraindications and precautions while massaging the pregnant client.

PTSD: Helping to Break the Cycle Through Touch

Matthew Howe
16 Hours, $320
May 4th-5th, 2019

Description

This workshop will help the massage professional gain understanding of what PTSD is, and what can be done to help. We will explore what our role and scope can be in the healing process. This class will teach you how to work with trauma and elevated nervous activity. You will learn techniques that will help clients turn down the noise in their tissues. We will provide the therapists time to grow in their experience through hands-on time and focused instructor attention.

What are the accommodations like?

We are on occasion able to accommodate Weekend Workshop participants on campus, but typically our housing is booked with students of our core curriculum. We are happy to recommend accommodations at local vacation rental spots or hotels. We also invite you to visit the Samara Infocenter. They provide free assistance with travel plans and everything to do with Samara and the area.

What do I do when I get there?

We recommend that you arrive to Playa Samara on the Thursday or Friday before your workshop. Please get in touch with our local staff via email at info@crsmt.com, phone: 2656-0491, or by stopping by the office. We would love to meet you, give you a campus tour, and provide you with campus keys.

Our campus is located in the heart of Playa Samara down the little road that runs behind the Banco Nacional across from the Pali grocery store.

How do I get there?

We recommend that you book your flight into Daniel Oduber International Airport (LIR) in Liberia, Costa Rica. LIR is about 2 hours from Playa Samara via car or shuttle. There are several rental car options, or you can take an airport shuttle. There are many shuttles and taxi drivers posted at the airport, but we recommend booking your shuttle in advance through the Samara Infocenter. Rates for shuttles can range $100-$130 one way.
