Small Group Learning
I am amazed to see what my students learn so quickly! The results are incredible. Very small class size (six to eight students maximum) makes a huge difference. Students acquire more skill in less time with less effort when the group is small. Every question gets asked and answered. Each student gets one-on-one guidance right when it’s needed.
Efficiently Organized Material
I teach students how to do what I do. I have made a conscious decision to not replicate my own training. I am well-trained, but I think my own training could have been more efficient and better organized. I teach people where to put their hands (assessment skills), what to do when they get there (treatment skills) and when to quit (signs of release) first. Then we plug all that into the anatomy, physiology, pathology, psycho social and other details. The order in which the material is presented and the foundation upon which it builds really matters.
The Midwifery Model of Care Perspective
I have spent many years blending my bodywork and midwifery knowledge and skills into a unique practice. I teach both my general CST classes and my specialized classes focused on pregnancy, postpartum and infants from the midwifery model of care perspective.
A Collaborative Learning Environment
My students come from diverse professional backgrounds and a variety of disciplines. The discussions we have about our work and the populations we serve provide a rich learning experience. My classes are really exciting for me because I learn so much from my students.
