The Synergy Way-Healing for the Healer(C244)

$515

with Mindy Oldham

PREREQUISITE: Synergy Way - Level 1

CE Credits: 21 Hours

Cost: $515 ($560 if registering within 7 days of class)

Using the Synergy Way as the foundation, students delve more deeply into the latest neuroscience research and Eastern theory to learn how caring for others connects us intimately to our own journeys. Lecture and exercises offer students this information as a way to reflect on how their client work can present challenges as well as opportunities for personal growth. Students will have time to reflect on how they may use this information to develop a practice that feels meaningful and sustainable for them. Each practitioner will need to complete a Synergy intake form and submit it one week prior to the class date to the instructor.

Advisory: I recommend practitioners have strong personal support systems in place when attending this class.  Trades will include clothed, therapeutic bodywork with 2-3 practitioners at each table. We suggest you intentionally keep evening commitments to those that provide a sense of safety, comfort and restoration.  If you have questions or concerns, please contact Mindy Oldham (615-957-7129).

This class will include lecture, sharing, self-reflection, group exercises and exchanging bodywork. Participants need to be prepared to participate in exchanges for themselves and others. Please wear comfortable clothes to participate in the exercises. No perfumes or scented products or jeans.

Introduction to the Synergy Way(C240)

$190

with Mindy Oldham

Calendar Sep 23, 2020 at 9 am

CE Credits: 7 Hours

Cost: $190 ($235 if registering within 7 days of class)

Content: The Synergy Way is designed to help us understand how we perceive and respond dynamically to our environments and how those perceptions and responses manifest in our bodies. Drawing deeply on both theory and practical application, we use the Synergy Way as a method to help clients build awareness of their body-felt experiences and, using that awareness, facilitate the healing process.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Review of current neuroscience research and its application to body work, including brain anatomy, the role of the vagal nerve and how our soft tissue responses parallel those of our central nervous system
  • The bodies physiological adaptive response to injury and trauma,  Discussion of the parallels between the physiological, mental and emotional healing processes
  • How to use this information to help use our bodies as a guide
  • The importance of mindset shifts (for both practitioner and clients) in working with the body

This class is designed for bodyworkers, counselors, trainers and anyone who works with clients in a manner that includes engagement and connection to body felt awareness. Clients who have a history of injury, trauma or difficulty having body awareness can benefit from using this framework to begin to approach their bodies.   At this time, continuing education credit is available for Tennessee LMT’s only; 7 hours.

Advisory: I recommend that practitioners have strong personal support systems in place when attending this class as the topics can resonate deeply with an individual’s personal experience and history, including experiences of injury and trauma. I suggest you intentionally keep evening commitments to those that provide a sense of safety, comfort and restoration. If you have questions or concerns, please contact Mindy Oldham (615-957-7129).

This class will include lecture, self-reflection and group exercises. Please wear comfortable clothes to participate in the exercises. No perfumes or scented products or jeans.

Unwind, Rock and Move (C500)

$270

with Teresa Greene

Calendar Nov 14, 2020 at 9 am

CE Credits: 13 Hours

Cost: $270 ($315 if registering within 7 days of class)

Unwind, Rock and Move is the methodology in which I now work with my massage clients and was created by first working with myself in pursuit of healing mind, body and spirit over many years.

Unwind, Rock and Move is fully clothed, slow bodywork.  This class is mostly hands-on with some discussion.  There are no prerequisites for this class.

It is my belief that our bodies were made to heal naturally when given the space and freedom to do so. When we slow down, make connection to the spirit within us and move where that spirit leads, we find freedom and fluidity.  This fluidity encourages good health and balance (homeostasis)to our overall wellbeing….and isn’t that what every human needs!

I look forward to sharing how I work with each of you!

Wear shorts, yoga pants or moveable materials that allow your body to naturally bend and move.  Please bring a large beach towel or blanket that you can place in the floor and 2 regular size pillows.

There is an Advanced Unwind, Rock and Move that is unclothed bodywork and this class is a prerequisite.

A lunch break will be taken midday; you may bring your lunch, or eat at one of the many restaurants located nearby.

Contact Teresa Greene at 615-370-9794 if you have additional questions.

Payment plan available: $90 deposit plus 2 payments of $90.00, paid every four weeks.

The Synergy Way - Level 1(C241)

Formerly called: Holistic Bodywork for Injury and Trauma - Level 1

PREREQUISITE:  C240 - Introduction to Synergy Way

Synergy Way-Level 1: Understanding the Physiology of Perception and Holistic Care

CE Credits: 21 Hours - This is a 3 day course meeting 9:00 am - 5:00 pm each day.

Cost: $515 ($560 if registering within 7 days of class)

This class provides an overview of anatomy, physiology and neuroscience of how our bodies process sensory information. Understanding the way our bodies respond to this processing is central to working safely and collaboratively with clients in a holistic manner. Because our bodies are programmed to survive, the body can put a container around the injury, whether consciously or unconsciously, in order to function on a daily basis. These containers often present themselves as tension or holding patterns.   We will address how, as practitioners, to work with clients to facilitate the healing process using the The Synergy Way which honors the body, mind, and spirit while remaining within our scope of practice.

Advisory: I recommend that practitioners have strong personal support systems in place when attending this class as the topics can resonate deeply with an individual’s personal experience and history, including experiences of injury and trauma. I suggest you intentionally keep evening commitments to those that provide a sense of safety, comfort and restoration. If you have questions or concerns, please contact Mindy Oldham (615-957-7129).

This class will include lecture, self-reflection and group exercises. Please wear comfortable clothes to participate in the exercises. No perfumes or scented products or jeans.

Call Teresa Greene at 615-370-9794 if you have any questions.

Payment plan available: $175 deposit plus 4 payments of $85.00, paid every two weeks.
