COLLEGE TO OFFER FREE MASSAGE SEMINAR
The Center for Training and Development at Casper College is hosting a free seminar that will provide an overview on a variety of different massage techniques as well as body mechanics on Sunday, Sept. 29 from 1 to 4 p.m.
Theresa Tobin Macy, licensed massage therapist, and registered yoga teacher, encourages massage therapists to bring their tables to the seminar. “I will actually demonstrate a number of massage therapies on those who attend the seminar, so that they can see and feel for themselves the techniques that can help them evolve their own therapy techniques, said Tobin Macy. In addition to massage therapy techniques, Tobin Macy will show those in attendance body mechanics that “will help them more efficiently use their body in their work.”
Tobin Macy earned her professional massage therapy diploma from the Cortiva Institute, Pennsylvania School of Muscle Therapy and has certifications in cross fiber deep muscle therapy and pre- and perinatal massage therapy. She has accrued 900 hours of continuing education credits in myofascial release, deep tissue techniques, assessment skills, and musculoskeletal anatomy, and has trained in yin yoga and yoga therapy.
Currently an instructor of musculoskeletal anatomy, kinesiology, foundational, and advanced massage techniques at Cortiva Institute, Tobin Macy earned the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork approved provider status in 2009 for advanced corrective therapies.
The seminar will take place in Room 222 of the Gateway Building, located on the Casper College campus.
