Pelvic Floor Work (16 NCBTMB CEUs)
September 23-24, 2023
Instructor: Marty Morales, Certified Advanced Rolfer®, CMT
The pelvic floor is a territory rarely taught in any detail to Massage Therapists. In this workshop, you'll learn a wide variety of techniques to help you access the pelvic floor within your scope of practice as an LMT or CMT.
You'll learn how to address the pelvic floor with specificity and confidence using breath work, manual therapy techniques, visceral work, and movement. These techniques will help you safely and effectively access some of the major pelvic floor territories including levator ani, obturator internus, coccygeus, bladder, pubic symphysis, prostate, coccyx, and more!
When I first became familiar with working this area, I quickly realized it to have been somewhat of a missing link in my practice over the years. I've used the techniques taught in this course to help my clients recover from injuries, to address postnatal issues, and to help with incontinence. Note: All work demonstrated in this workshop is done externally and clothed.

Will this workshop offer CEUs?
This workshop is approved by NCBTMB and the Nevada State Board of Massage Therapy. We will be able to offer 16 hrs of CEUs for attending the full workshop. We cannot offer partial credit if you're late. You'll receive a certificate of completion at the end of the course that you can submit to your state board for credit.
Can I still get CEU credit if I'm late or can only attend part of the workshop?
No. We cannot issue a certificate of completion for the workshop unless you're on time and are present for the full day. For example, we cannot offer 4 hours of credit if you can only attend for four hours.
What is the cancellation policy?
There will be no refunds within two weeks of the scheduled workshop, only credit toward future workshops.
Where will these workshops be held?
We will hold the workshops at the European Massage Therapy School in Las Vegas, a local massage school just 20 minutes from the Vegas Strip. The address for the school is: 9440 W. Sahara Ave., Suite 250, Las Vegas, NV 89117.
What will I need to bring?
Because we're holding the course at a massage school, you will not need to bring a table. The school will provide massage tables for our use.
You will need to bring:
Shorts and a tank top or sports bra to wear when receiving the work
Sheets for your table (1 fitted sheet and a face cradle cover or pillow case)
Water (and snacks for yourself, if necessary)
Lunch money or bagged lunch (the school is located in a shopping center with restaurants where you can eat lunch)
What about lunch?
We will take an hour lunch break from 1pm-2pm. You can either bring your own lunch, or explore the shopping center in which the school is located to buy a lunch. Here is the link to the google maps to see what's available.
Is there parking available?
Yes, you can park in the parking lot outside the school while attending the workshop.
I'm traveling from afar to attend, where can I stay?
It's Las Vegas, so if you want to go big and make this a bit of a work vacation, stay at the strip! It's just 20 minutes from the school (depending on where you stay along the strip). But if you're looking to take the more conservative route, there is a La Quinta Inn & Suites right next to the school where you can easily walk across the parking lot to class in the morning.
