May

to May 5

Aquatic Therapy Protocols for the Geriatric Therapist

16 hr. training module packed into 2 days. Includes ~8 hrs in-water training, 2+ hrs land labs, and tons of evidence. Let’s face it. The population is aging so it’s nice to know you’ve got a powerful solution to the weight of the world… water. Attend a class designed to examine the most common disorders seen in geriatric rehab settings – total hip and knee replacements, arthritisosteoporosis, dependence in gait, Parkinson's, CVA, progressive neurological disorders, cardiopulmonary disorders, and more.

This class will focus exclusively on the geriatric population and participants will examine recent research which supports aquatic therapy for this population. Even better? You’ll get in the water for over 8 hours to practice your new protocols and progressions. On Monday morning, be prepared to make a compelling argument for incorporating aquatic therapy across the geriatric spectrum – from injured elderly to the neurologically impaired, non-ambulatory client.

to Mar 3

KinAqua Flow® Level I - Introduction

In this workshop, you will learn the basic techniques and principles of the KinAqua Flow® therapeutic method.

KinAqua Flow® is an aquatic therapeutic method, designed by Debbie Torrellas, founder and director of Float Water Therapy. This method combines several therapeutic disciplines. "Kin" comes from the Greek word "kinesio" which means body movement, "Aqua" comes from water and "Flow" refers to the flow and transit of functional liquids. In the end, KinAqua Flow® is the presentation, application, and adaptation CranioSacral therapy in water. The modality is not a massage, but a soft touch therapy that handles the tissue and facilitates the release of restrictions - largely supported by the lack of gravity. The safe and practical management of this therapy combined with myofascial facilitation, tissue mobilization, lymphatic drainage, and adrenal, visceral, and cerebrospinal manipulation have the ability to organize and balance the entire nervous system.
