Revised Workshop: Improv Hands, Sunday, October 2 9:00 a.m.

This workshop has been presented a couple times as “Improv for Bodyworkers.” Below is part of the handout for the workshop, then further below the details.
     Exercise: My Posture and its Opposite
     Everyone stands in a circle. Close eyes. Notice your posture. Make it even more exaggerated. Open eyes and walk around with current posture. A) Notice how you feel when you approach, make eye contact with others who have their postures. B) Notice what interpretations you make about others, when you see their postures. Once you’ve experienced some feelings and made some interpretations, now say one word to the people you meet. (a phrase, a sentence). Again A) how you feel saying, b) what you think of what they said. Stop walking. Close eyes, now make posture the opposite. If shoulders were forward, now they are rearward, etc. Open eyes and walk around, meeting others, and seeing a) how you feel, b) what you think of them, silent and then speaking one word or sentence. Everyone sits in circle and shares, what did you learn? Now we go to the tables and do 10 minutes of clothed massage, trade. Again sit in circle, what did you learn?

10/2  (REDESIGNED CLASS)  Improv Hands – Client-Centered Table Work using Group Mind
5 CE hours, $115.00 for LMTs needing to recertify, half price for those who do not need a certificate. Location: Patrick Moore Home Office, NW Tucson. To register email, text or FB message Patrick.
    Description: Group mind means connecting with others and acting for the group benefit. In a bodywork session, group mind tells you how to help the recipient  resolve her tension. The group mind also cares to rejuvenates you, so that you’ll give better therapy. Spontaneity makes your sessions more natural and spiritual. We will do at least two improv exercises. Once warmed up, we go to the tables to see how different it feels to touch and be touched. This workshop is one third improv exercises, one third table work and one third group discussion. All massage will be clothed. Please bring one fitted sheet.

Week Three

9/18/16  Calming the Clothed Body with Jostling, Positioning & Palpation
--  Soothing the Brain     
5 CE hours $115.00. To register email Patrick.          
     Jostling is like a child being pushed on a swing. The brain likes it, and responds with a cascade of pleasant sensations, safety and peace, like coming home. Jostling reminds the brain everything is safe. You hear a sigh of relief and the person simply drops the tension. Jostling does not always lead to relaxation. There is a teachable skill that includes finding the frequency that is "just right." Palpation and positioning can also be done in ways the brain likes. Palpation not only tells you where structures are, but it also communicates with the recipient’s brain. Positioning is a third way to have a conversation with the brain. We will practice all three skills on partners, with discussion about what qualities or sensations help the brain choose to relax. Please wear loose or stretchy clothing so your partners can position and jostle your body freely on the massage table. 50/50 table work and group discussion. You do not need to bring a table, thanks. Please bring one fitted sheet. We take 10 minute breaks each hour – please bring snacks and drinks.

9/19  (REDESIGNED CLASS)  Improv Hands – Client-Centered Table Work using Group Mind
5 CE hours, $115.00. To register email Patrick.                     
     Group mind is a term borrowed from Improv, that means connecting with others and assisting the group’s needs before one’s own. In a bodywork session group mind helps both people equally: the recipient  resolves her tension, and rejuvenates you. Spontaneity activates both you and the recipient to be more natural, and your sessions will surprise you with new directions of potential healing and growth. We will do at least two improv exercises: "Yes, and...," and "Gifting your partner." Once warmed up, we go to the tables to see how different it feels to touch and be touched. Repeating the same strokes over and over can damage your thumbs, wrists and other joints. And if you want to have different results then it makes sense to try different things. This workshop is one third standing improv exercises, one third table work and one third group discussion. All massage will be clothed. Please bring one fitted sheet. You do not need to bring your table, thanks. We take 10 minute breaks each hour. Please wear comfortable clothing. We take 10 minute breaks each hour so please bring snacks and drinks.

Week Four

9/26 Mirror Neurons – How Therapists are Using the Mirroring Tendency to Resonate with recipients’ Tension and Lead them to Relax by Example (Research)
5 CE hours $100.00 ($75.00 when paid in full ten days prior, a 25% discount) To register email Patrick.    
     Mirroring is when our brain watches how others appear to be, and fires our own muscles to recreate the same feeling in us. Therapists are now using this tendency to help tense people to relax and to learn to respond to life’s challenges. Are mirror neurons a basis for empathy or compassion? Not exactly but we will still discuss what would be a basis for empathy. Can mirror neurons be fooled? Yes, we will do the rubber-hand experiment. This workshop is 100% group discussion -- no bodywork. You do not need to bring your table, thanks. We take 10 minute breaks each hour. Please wear comfortable clothing, bring snacks and drinks.

October 2016
Week One

10/2 (REDESIGNED CLASS) Improv Hands – Client-Centered Table Work using Group Mind
5 CE hours $115.00 ($86.25 when paid in full 10 days prior, a 25% discount) To register email Patrick.     
     Group mind is a term borrowed from Improv, that means connecting with others and assisting the group’s needs before one’s own.

Spontaneity activates both you and the recipient to be more natural, and your sessions will surprise you with new directions of potential healing and growth. We will do at least two improv exercises: "Yes, and...," and "Gifting your partner." 

Once warmed up, we talk with partners about the things massage therapists discuss with clients including symptoms, onset, causes, assessment, prognosis and treatment plan, now in a group mind connection. This workshop is one third standing improv exercises, one third partner talking exercises and one third unrehearsed group discussion. You do not need to bring your table, thanks. We take 10 minute breaks each hour. Please wear comfortable clothing, bring snacks and drinks.

10/3/16          (NEW CLASS) Melting Muscles Theory – How and Why do Muscles Melt? (Muscle Physiology / Therapeutic Relationship)
5 CE hours $100.00 ($75.00 when paid in full ten days prior, a 25% discount) To register email Patrick.                

     Melting Muscles has been taught as a hands-on bodywork class since 2002. The emphasis was always on feeling muscles melt, and being able to reproduce that experience in your own practice. Now we get to talk about how muscles melt, when muscles melt and when they don’t. Is it the brain that determines when muscles will soften and relax? If it is the brain, is it mirror neurons? Or is it more mental? Does the relationship influence the person, or the subconscious? What leads the person to release her tension, or hold it bound? This class is for therapists who have experienced muscles relaxing in their hands, who would like to explain this to others and to themselves. This workshop is 100% group discussion -- no bodywork. You do not need to bring your table, thanks. We take 10 minute breaks each hour. Please wear comfortable clothing, bring snacks and drinks.
