Learning Objectives for Our Structural Integration CEU Course
First, by examining a list of this class’s learning objectives, you’ll understand what you can expect to gain from participating in this course. And, secondly–and perhaps even more importantly–you stand to gain as an adult learner. When taking on new information as an adult, there are both disadvantages to be overcome (maybe it’s been awhile since you’ve been in school) as well as advantages to be harnessed (you’re motivated, focused, and probably more interested in the content than the average college student). As a result of preparing you for what the course will cover, reading through the learning objectives will help to increase your level of retention throughout the course and aid in making your learning more effective and efficient.
In layman’s terms, our continuing education course will cover the history of the technique, its benefits, various contraindications, and an effective sequence of techniques for you to use in your massage practice.
That said, let’s go into more detail. After completing this course, you’ll have a better understanding of the following:
Define Structural Integration
- Structural Integration is a massage technique that can be defined as the three – dimensional balancing of the musculoskeletal system, which helps bring balance between the body and gravity.
- Structural Integration is performed in a 10 sessions series, specifically targeting segments of the body in a unique order.
- The major body segment are organized around the center vertical axis. This allows the center of gravity for each segment to align with the ones above and below. Creating deep structural shift and balance to the body.
Dr. Ida Rolf
Structural Integration is a technique that originally came from the work of the famous Dr. Ida Rolf. However, to understand Structural Integration we must first understand its roots and why Dr. Rolf created it. Dr. Ida P. Rolf, Ph.D., was a biochemist who was originally from New York and lived from 1896 to 1979. After graduating from Barnard College she started working for the Institute in the chemistry department. She continuing her education to eventually obtain her Ph.D. in biochemistry from Columbia University in 1920. Dr. Rolf was deeply influenced by her studies of biological science, physics, homeopathic medicine and even yoga. She recognized the importance of gravity in reinforcing the body’s structure and energy fields. She began to find connections between the osteopathic notion of vertical skeletal alignment and the ancient notion of the alignment of the chakras. She would eventually combined Wester biology and Eastern spirituality in her teachings. She believed to have true balance it would require the removal of muscular torsions and skeletal imbalance that impede the flow of energy, oxygen, lymph, blood and neural messages.
What are CEUs, and Why are They Important?
Your continuing education as a massage professional involves two important components. On the one hand, your daily experience in the clinic provides you with a practical education that’s an absolute necessity to your professional growth. At the same time, however, it’s equally essential to continue your education in a more traditional way. If you’re wondering how you can do that, we’re here to help. Massage CEUs, or Continuing Education Units (GUIDE TO LMT CONTINUING EDUCATION), are an excellent way to keep learning long after you’ve graduated from a massage program.
And while massage CEUs are a huge part of professional development, they’re also often a legal requirement. In most states, all licensed practitioners are required to take a certain number of CEU hours (NCBTMB GUIDE) each year (or sometimes every two to three years) in order to keep their license current.
As an NCBTMB Approved Provider of CEUs, Panda Massage CEU can provide you with quality education that fulfills state and national requirements.
