How the Atlas “Goes Out” and How to Resolve It

Friday, January 3, 2014, Phoenix (Near Bethany Home Rd)

$134.00, 6 CE hours, includes handouts, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (one hour break for lunch)

10% discount for paying in full ($120.00), nonrefundable, one week (7 days) before the workshop. 20% discount for paying in full ($107.00), nonrefundable, three weeks (21 days) before workshop. Class minimum 2 people (refunds if minimum not met). Register with $25.00 deposit by contacting your instructor, Patrick Moore, 520-334-8950, healingbrain@gmail.com . Checks and cards (through paypal) accepted.

 

Category: Science. This is a group discussion workshop with no hands-on practice (if you want hands-on, consider coming the day before for Melting the Atlas and Axis, which is all hands-on). You will learn what it means when the “atlas goes out.” One little suboccipital muscle, the Obliquus Capitis Posterior Inferior (OCPI) attempts to rotate the whole head. First the OCPI spasms, then the larger SCM and Splenius Capitis overpower it to rotate the head back to neutral. This larger force actually rotates the axis (C2) to one side. When a Chiropractor rotates the head with force, he is attempting to fix this condition. You will learn:

  • Exactly which muscles are responsible for the spun C2, in which order.
  • How to palpate, and see, a spun axis.
  • A strategy of which muscles to relax, in which order, for this condition to be resolved.
  • How to build a specialty business around gently resolving atlanto-axial muscle tension.

If this topic interests you, you will also enjoy Patrick’s video series, Actions of the Obliquus Capitis Inferior, on Youtube. This class was formerly titled, "Three Muscles Compete to Rotate the Head."

 

Patrick Moore studied atlantaoxial rotation with Rich Phaigh 1994-1996 including 120 CE hours in Seattle and a 40-hour practicum in Eugene, Oregon. He studied craniosacral with Bruno Ducoux, Osteopath from France, 96 hours in 1996-97. Patrick’s article about the atlanto-axial joint appeared in Massage Therapy Journal in 2003.

Triple your Energy Palpation Skills

Open to all, whether you have previous training in energy work or not. You will practice feeling the energy around your partner's body without touching the body. Your hands will be twelve to eighteen inches away from the body to make sure you are not feeling heat or static electricity. You will learn:

  • How to scan the body for imbalances.
  • How to treat the body using energy.
  • How to sense when the person's energy has rebalanced.

This is an advanced training and accelerated process. Because no matter how much training you have had in energy work, your ability to palpate energy will still triple when you practice with several partners giving objective feedback. There will be time for your questions and case histories. This workshop was formerly called, "Hands-Above Energy Palpation Lab." Please let me know if you can bring a massage table.

 

Patrick studied the Silva method 1977-87, and the hands-above style from Stephen Bruno, 1996-1999. Patrick has been teaching Reiki and Energy Palpation since 2001. More about Patrick at meltingmuscles.com. Feel free to contact me with questions J

Advice is rarely taken. And that may be a good thing. The person is better served when she can generate her own ideas--she ends up more self-sufficient. Coaching is a way to serve clients well without counseling them. In particular, creating a relationship of equal power, is the best preventative of transference, dual relationship and unethical behavior. You will learn the basic elements of lifecoaching, through dialogue, group discussion and demonstration. This workshop is tailored to your questions and concerns, including brainstorming your case histories.

 

Patrick Moore has been studying lifecoaching with Stephen Bruno since 1996. Stephen was a pioneer in the lifecoaching movement in the 1980s as creator of the SouthWest Institute. More about Patrick at http://meltingmuscles.com Feel free to contact me with questions J

10% discount for paying in full ($140.00), nonrefundable, one week (7 days) before the workshop

Provides a great review of muscles. You will be receiving about three hours of muscle-relaxation in total, so come prepared to relax! Melting Muscles can be incorporated into a full-body Swedish, or any muscle can be melted for a more specific medical massage. Also works perfectly through clothing. Please wear loose/stretchy clothing like yoga pants, bring sheets and lotion or oil. Please let me know if you can bring a table.

Category: Science. This fun, group-discussion workshop presents the latest findings in brain science from the perspective of givers and recipients of massage. Mirror neurons are actual cells in the human brain that cause us to perceive what we imagine others perceive. For example, if a person is limping, your mirror neurons will actually fire your muscles differently so that you feel what it feels like to limp. Then you are likely to realize, that person must be in pain! Mirror neurons facilitate empathy, which is the understanding of how others feel. Imagine how this works during muscle massage: your mirror neurons are watching the person's body and your brain is imagining how it feels to be receiving that pressure. The recipient is also imagining what it is like to be the giver. Think of how much service this adds to both people's experience! If you are curious about how mirror neurons facilitate ethics, please go to TED.com and search for the "mirror neurons" talk by V.S. Ramachandran.

 

Patrick Moore has participated in the Brain curriculum with Bruno Chikly, D.O. and studied the books of V.S. Ramachandran, Antonio Damasio, M.D. and others.  More about Patrick at http://meltingmuscles.com  Feel free to contact me with your questions J

Accomodations for Travelers

If you will be flying to come to a Melting Muscles or other workshop in Tucson, here is a map that includes the two closest hotels to my home office:

 

 

The names of the two hotels have changed in the last five years so I think I will simply give you their addresses. One is at 10150 N. Oracle Road, Oro Valley, AZ. It has a great hot tub with a spectacular view of Pusch Ridge. My wife and I stayed here a number of times when we were looking for homes in Tucson.

 

The second one is at 7411 N. Oracle Road, Tucson, AZ, 85704. My Dad stayed here during Christmas and said it was fine. It is less than a mile from my home office, if you don’t mind walking to class, this would be a nice walk. This hotel happens to be next door to A Rich Experience, where I sometimes hold my classes, so your walk would be about a hundred feet!

 

There are two very fun trails into the green area of the map, one is called Pima Canyon that goes all the way to the Alligator Juniper, Pinyon and Ponderosa Pine forest on top..

 

There are other hotels I have not tried along the freeway, I-10, at the Cortaro Road exit and the Ina Road exit, as you see by the red dots and balloons on the map.

 

Drive time from PHX airport to the intersection of Oracle Road and Ina Road is 2 hours. There are a number of shuttle services I see on the freeways, vans that take travelers from PHX to Tucson.

 

I always enjoyed traveling to classes in other states. I hope your journey is exhilarating. Bring a camera!

Melting Muscles for Beginners

Melting Muscles for Beginners

Four-Hour Workshops, $80.00 per person

(see calendar above for dates)

with Patrick Moore

Location: NW Tucson, at the home office of Patrick Moore LMT (you will be given directions after you register).

Minimum 2, maximum 6 participants.

 

Would you like to be able to relax the muscles of your children, parents, partner, or friends? After teaching Licensed Massage Therapists since 2002, I have decided to begin sharing the Melting Muscles method with all interested people. You don't need any previous experience or education.

 

After a brief introduction you will choose a partner from the other class participants to practice with. (Those who do not wish to trade with other participants may bring a partner or friend to the workshop, who will also pay tuition). Half of the participants will lie down on the massage tables in my office, to be "recipients." The other half will be "givers." I will teach the givers first to move the arm into a favorable position for the shoulder to relax. Then I will teach you how to feel the shoulder elevator muscle (upper trapezius.) Within a very short time you will be feeling this muscle melt in your hand. Melting is proof that the muscle is relaxing. You can actually feel the hardness of muscle tension softening. Then it will be your turn to lie down.

 

Everyone is fully clothed, and we will be feeling the muscles through clothing. So wear loose, stretchy clothes like T-shirts, yoga or workout clothes.

 

Please bring snacks and water as we will be taking short breaks each hour.

A restroom is provided. There is parking for several cars available.

 

Registration begins by contacting Patrick Moore by calling me at 520-334-8950. Registration is not guaranteed—I would like to have a short conversation with each potential participant just to make sure they are people we feel comfortable touching and having touch us. Payment made in full by ten days before the workshop saves you 25%. Registration is due by 3 days before the workshop, with a $20.00 non-refundable deposit to hold your place in class. After six registrants there will be a waiting list, or you may register for a future workshop (I plan to hold them between four and twelve times over the next year). Payments may be made with cash, check, or PayPal. If you would like to use a card but do not have a PayPal account yet, I can email you an invoice which will take you to PayPal where you can complete your transaction online without having to create a PayPal account.

 

I look forward to teaching beginners. I recall fondly a workshop I taught in Oklahoma where one of the participants was a beginner (I wasn't told this until after the workshop). He was a delight to teach, very enthusiastic and I think he actually learned faster or deeper than the other therapists who had lots of education and experience. I believe Melting Muscles is perfect for unlicensed people to practice on family and friends, for one, because it is so easy to learn (you will master it in one day), two, because it is so easy to have undeniable results of muscles relaxing, three, because it is done with recipients fully clothed, and four, because it can be done without a massage table—on the grass, on any kind of table, on a bed, with the recipient sitting in a chair or even standing.

 

There is a pdf handout if you click on the date in the google calendar above. If you cannot access the google calendar handout, please call me and I can email you a copy of the handout.

 

I look forward to meeting you. I always enjoy meeting new people and I love presenting workshops.

 

My teaching style is Socratic—I believe you already possess your natural link to knowledge, and my job is not to tell you the answers but to direct you where to find your own answers. Past students really enjoy learning Melting Muscles and find the workshop style refreshing.

 

If you have any other questions, please call me. There is no obligation to sign-up if you just have some questions J

15 minute Atlas Axis Session with Dialogue

This morning my wife woke with a kink in her neck., and asked me if I wouldn’t have a few minutes sometime today. Standing, she rotated her head to her left, then pointed at the left side of her neck where it meets her shoulder. “When I turn this way, it hurts here.”

I asked her to lie on the bed diagonally, with her head at one corner of the foot-end of the bed. I pulled up a chair to that corner, spread my knees and slid the chair right up to touching the corner of the bed. This is an excellent way to reach the neck, it brings the head within very close easy reach of your hands, perhaps even better than a massage table does.

Holding her head, I felt that it wanted to rotate to her right, so I helped it. For it to want to rotate right, the right-rotating muscles must be contracting more than the left-contracting muscles. The two most influential right-rotating muscles are the right OCI muscle and the right Splenius Capitis. In right rotation, I palpated the OCI with a crossing motion with one finger and then pressed it and waited. With my other hand I pressed into the Splenius. Getting into this position took about half of a minute, my hands just do this naturally now, I could do it in my sleep.

“That feels complicated,” she said, “like you’re doing a lot. But why are you working on my right side when I feel the pain on my left?”

“Well, my hands felt that your head wanted to rotate right. That told me that your right-rotating muscles are tighter.” In the midst of melting the muscle, I crossed it twice as I was speaking, to give her another way of sensing what we were talking about. “When this muscle contracts, it rotates your head to the Right. Do you see?”

“Yes.”

“So if this muscle is too tight, then it does not want to lengthen to its full length. For your head to rotate to the Left, this muscle must lengthen to its full length. But since it is too tight, it begins providing resistance when you try to turn your head to the left. Get it?”

“Yes. But shouldn’t I feel that resistance on the right?”

“You would if what you are feeling was muscle tension. But you feel more of a pinch. What’s happening is, the tight muscle on the right prevents the two parts of the two bones from sliding apart from each other on the right. Still, other larger muscles are still pulling. Since the larger muscles can’t separate those two bone parts, they become the immovable fulcrum and something else has to move. Instead of those two bones sliding apart, the joint has to compress and pinch. Depending on the joint, that pinch could be felt on the Right or the Left, you can’t always predict what is going to be pinched first.”

“So a nerve is being pinched?”

“It could be a nerve, or simply the two bones are pressed together on a surface that is not designed for contact, and the bones actually hurt.”

She pondered this while I slowly returned her head from Right rotation to neutral, since the Right-rotators were melting. Then I crossed her left Levator Scapula a few times (to provide sensation for her and to give me a good sense of the fibers) then I pressed into its thickest part and waited. It began melting.

“Now you’re working where I feel the pain.”

“Yes, first I worked where your subconscious brain told me was the muscle that was most tense, and now I am working where you consciously feel you need work. I’m showing your brain that I am listening to both versions, so you’ll be balanced.” After the Levator melted, I asked her to try to move her head.

“It’s a little better,” she said, and her hand went to the left levator again, telling me there was still pain there.

I felt her head again in neutral and again it wanted to rotate to the Right. So I melted the Right-rotators again, until the head wanted to return to neutral again. The head actually appears to pull itself back to neutral when the Right-rotators relax to the degree they are contracting equal to, or less than the Left-rotating muscles are contracting.

“How about now?”
She rotated her head left and right and said maybe she felt a little more relief. Her hand again went to her Left Levator. “I’m sure it will feel better in time, you’ve done enough.”

But I wanted to do one more thing. Again I rubbed, then melted her Left Levator Scapula at the shoulder. This time I also sidebent her neck to the Left which places the Levator in a shorter position.  I found the upper fingers of the Levator and lightly pressed them against the TVPs of C1 through C3. I was thinking that the Levator probably gets cranky when three of its insertions are long and one is short, or vice versa. This would happen whenever the head is rotated for long periods, or when there is excess tension in one of the OCI muscles. I believe the muscles really have individual personalities, and they literally experience emotions like cranky, competitive, bullied, and fatalistic, and then when relieved of their stresses they feel grateful and cooperative.  I felt her Levator melt again, and allowed her head to come out of Left sidebending back to neutral.
“Try it again,” I said.

“Wow, it’s way better. Thanks! What did you do?”

“You had a big muscle that was trying to guard the area. It had a good reason to guard when your bones were being pulled out of their natural balance. But even after the cause of the problem was reduced, the big muscle still was feeling it out to keep guarding. So I spent more time with it to call it back from duty.”

She saw that the rug in the room needed cleaning so she began moving furniture and rolling up the rug. I took this to mean she was back in balance.
