WHEN: Book a workshop for you and your health professional community WHERE: A sponsored private venue in your community COST:  Per person fee based on expected numbers of trainees. Sponsorship from local breast cancer support groups can be sort A  practical workshop for health professionals interested in helping breast cancer survivors better manage common impairments such as shoulder pain and restricted arm reach. This will be suited to health professionals who have a scope of practice that involves massage or soft tissue interventions. This workshop will focus on assessments to develop a treatment plan vs assessments used in research to evaluate changes in dysfunction. Treatments will be very specific to tight scar and adhesions-  therefore will be applicable to mastectomy scar, lumpectomy, seroma, and cording. Both days will offer small group practice of assessment and treatments covered. I will work to have clients at these sessions who will have common breast cancer-related impairments. Training group size can be a maximum of 20 with a preference of 8-10 REFUND POLICY: If you have received the link for the Modules there will be a service/product cost of $180.

Workshop participants will learn the following skills specific to breast cancer impairments:

  • Arm to Ear Test and Reach Out the Back Test
  • Using the MAP-BC for evaluating impairment location
  • Determine the difference between muscle and scar/ adhesion impairments
  • Palpation skills specific to impairments common to mastectomy, lumpectomy, ALND, cording
  • Use of treatment methods suitable for breast cancer survivors: fascia release, Lewit barrier release, trigger point release, adapted cupping and self-management techniques based on these.
  • Treatment planning around breast cancer medical interventions

You will practice safe and effective hand pressures for assessment and treatment as used by Denise Stewart in her practice; the Standard TouchTM Device will be available at the workshop. 

EARLY BIRD REWARD: Make full payment 4 weeks before the workshop and you will receive access to Module 1 and Module 2 at no extra charge.

REFUND POLICY: If you have received the link for the Modules there will be a service/product cost of $180.

These modules offer active links to the extensive research which underpins the need for impairment vs dysfunction assessment and the testing demonstrated at the workshop.  I believe that by undertaking the study of these Modules – the workshop will be less overwhelming and therefore foster better learning outcomes for you and your potential clients.

  • mastectomy + lumpectomy scars and adhesions,
  • seroma
