WHEN: November 16 & 17  2019

WHERE: Song Hotel, Wentworth Ave Sydney

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.

ONE DAY OPTION: If you have a referral role only, such as a breast care nurse or yoga therapist, you could benefit from attending 1 day only: you will observe the impairments and the responses to scar or core stability treatments.

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 afternoon sessions will offer small group practice of assessment and treatments covered in the morning sessions. I will work to have clients at the afternoon session who will have common breast cancer-related impairments.

Additional assessments and treatments covered over the 2 days will include:

  • rib cage movement
  • breath control
  • scapular stability and movement 
  • trunk stability
  • neck stability/posture retraining.
  • task analysis of pole walking to facilitate stretch ar ANLD dissection scar/adhesions

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


DATE: November 16 & 17  (Sat and Sun)

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

  • Arm to Ear Test and Reach Out the Back Test
  • Determine the difference between muscle and scar/ adhesion impairments
  • Use palpation skills to determine best location  and type of treatment to use for common impairments*
  • Use of methods suitable for breast cancer survivors: fascia release, scar barrier release, triggerpoint (serratus ant + teres), adapted cupping
  • Treatment planning around breast cancer medical interventions

EARLY BIRD REWARD: Make full payment before  September 30, 2019, and you will receive access to Module 1 and Module 2 at no extra cost.

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
  • cording
  • axillary lymph node linear scar + dissection bed adhesions

To keep the workshop fee down, you will be asked to bring/purchase your own meals.
