This course will introduce students of Massage Therapy to parts of the Fascial Integration series, where the nomenclature of fascial restrictions of the body will be categorized and treated. Students are expected to be able to identify when a fascial problem should be treated, when it is secondary to other problems in the body and when it is the cause. They will also be expected to choose an appropriate technique for the patient’s problem.
This workshop has been approved for 24 Primary Credits through the MTAM.
About the Instructors
A former licensed practical nurse in Saskatoon, Monica Gran graduated from the Northern Institute of Massage (Blackpool, England) in 1991 with a Basic Massage Diploma, and then with an Advanced Diploma from Western College of Remedial Massage Therapies (Regina, Saskatchewan) in 1993. Monica moved to Winnipeg shortly after, with her husband Dale, and son, Jesse. While operating a private practice out of her home, Monica began teaching at the Wellington College of Remedial Massage Therapies in 2000, teaching several courses over the years: Anatomy, Kinesiology, and Basic Remedial Massage. Monica's technical knowledge and practical experience were of great benefit to the students. Her dedicated approach to teaching proper and professional massage techniques helped prepare students for future success as therapists. Monica continued her own education, and graduated with a Adult Education Certificate in 2007 from the University of Manitoba. While no longer teaching at Wellington, Monica continues to operate a full-time home-based practice.
After graduating from Western College of Remedial Massage Therapies with the Abe Reimer Award of Excellence, Dale was invited to pursue instructor traning. An instructor at Wellington College since 1997, Dale teaches Massage Application to advanced full-time and distance education students. For his ongoing dedication to students, Dale received honors from Wellington College in 2000. Dale's work in Somatics was published in an industry journal and his expertise in applied massage has led him to present at conferences and seminars across Canada. He continues to operate a private practice in his spare time. Dale received his Adult Education Certificate from the University of Manitoba in 2008.
