About CPE Made Easy
As a clinical therapist, I was frustrated about the lack of ongoing clinical and business education out there available to me. I was busy caring for my clients as well as trying to maintain a social lifestyle (well, trying to anyway). Quality workshops and conferences were few and far between, and really expensive. I have a strong passion and desire to improve my knowledge to increase the care I can deliver to my clients, hence this is how CPE Made Easy was born. CPE Made Easy is system of educational webinars delivered direct to your computer or iPad each fortnight over the year and gives you around 24 hours of direct continuing professional education.

Muscle Balance Analysis

 Muscle Balance Analysis Seminars

This is an excellent course for myotherapists, remedial massage therapists, and other health professionals interested in underlying structural and postural causes of persistent chronic and acute pain patterns that don't otherwise resolve.

Muscle Balance Analysis teaches skills to confidently discover and resolve pain-creating muscular imbalances in human posture and correct for (previously undetected) structural asymmetries. This highly practical 2-day seminar teaches participants a reliable clinical method to detect frequently overlooked perpetuating factors of soft tissue pain throughout the body, with special emphasis on leg length differentials and the very often missed or disregarded small hemipelvis. We will investigate how to determine and test for the presence of small but critical skeletal asymmetries in the legs and pelvis, combinations thereof, and the corrections required for both single and multiple asymmetries, whether ipsilateral or contralateral.

The balance of the weekend is spent in developing an understanding of how to interpret the results of these evaluations and successfully apply them in a clinical setting, as well as in refining the evaluation technique.

The participants will learn the MBA method of taking and charting a detailed structural and postural analysis using palpation of bony landmarks from an anterior, posterior, and lateral perspective, standing, supine and seated. We will teach a method of charting these measurements in a particular way that enables participants to easily interpret the findings and grasp their therapeutic implications.

Ample opportunity is provided to find out how the application of the MBA Approach to Pain Relief® will affect your practice in particular, to bring up for discussion complex cases/postural patterns that have been found in the class, and to discuss how these would be managed in clinical practice, the effect of structural and postural distortions on the viscera, how this affects specific sports, various occupations, the young, and the elderly.

Upcoming Seminars

Buds to Blossoms Paediatric Massage Volunteer Program

Paediatric Massage Volunteer Program with AIDS orphans in Vietnam

Spend three weeks providing paediatric massage, infant massage and other forms of bodywork to AIDS orphans in Ho Chi Minh City.

Massage is of particular benefit to these children, because of its immune system- strengthening effect. It also promotes their general well-being by providing relief from pain and anxiety and helping meet their emotional and developmental needs through one-on-one nurturing attention and touch.

During the program, volunteers get a tremendous amount of hands-on experience of providing massage to children. Although the program's focus is primarily on caring for AIDS orphans, volunteers also spend some of their time offering massage to orphans with disabilities.

CPE points : 30

Fundamental to this approach, we ensure that students are provided with all of the necessary knowledge to start a career as a massage therapist. Our range of courses offers students the ability to commence as a beginner and then advance their skills and capabilities, thereby developing into a skilful therapist, or, alternatively, to hone and improve the skill-set of therapists already at work in our industry.

We believe the massage treatment of any injury, muscular condition or relaxation session must be very thorough in nature in order to achieve maximum benefits. Thoroughness is taught and promoted in every aspect of our massage courses.

Importantly, our massage courses are endorsed by the Massage Association of Australia (MAA). At the successful completion of our Whole Body Massage Course, students are eligible for membership with the MAA, and may apply for Professional Indemnity Insurance.
