Come join Marty Morales in Las Vegas for a 2 or 3-day workshop all about addressing neck pain with manual therapy techniques.


On Friday and Saturday, we'll begin with our Advanced Neck Work I workshop (16.0 CEUs). In this workshop, we'll dive deep into the intricate structural relationships of the muscles and the vertebrae of the cervical spine, how form and function influence one another, and how massage can positively support and improve these relationships.


Then on Sunday 9/22, we'll continue on into our Advanced Neck Work II workshop (8.0 CEUs) to explore techniques that will help you address even the trickiest neck pain cases and conditions. Read below for detailed workshop descriptions, registration links, and FAQs!

Program Description: In this two-day workshop, you'll be taught the skills to track down dysfunction in the neck and the techniques to work deeply and effectively with clients’ trouble spots in order to restore balance, relieve pain, and improve range of motion and overall function.

You'll learn how vertebrae behave in movement using Fryette’s Law. We'll then explore how to apply this knowledge of vertebral movement to our tissue work. We will explore how to work tissue attaching to the spinous processes (and other parts of the vertebrae) paired with gentle movements to de-rotate vertebra. At the end of this course, you'll know how to use manual therapy techniques to work the soft tissues in the neck and address rotations in the cervical vertebra.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will this workshop offer CEUs?
These workshops are approved by NCBTMB, the Florida Board of Massage Therapy, and the Nevada State Board of Massage Therapy. The workshops have been approved for the following hours:

  • 16.0 CEUs for Advanced Neck Work I

  • 8.0 CEUs for attending Advanced Neck Work II

  • Students who attend the full weekend (Friday-Sunday) will accrue 24.0 CEUs total. 

We cannot offer partial credit if you're late. You'll receive a digital 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'll 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:

  • 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 pillowcase)

  • 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'll take an hour lunch break from 1pm-2pm. You can either bring your own lunch (there is a small kitchen with a microwave and a sink at the school) or you can 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 for free 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 and plenty of Airbnb options within walking distance of the school.

Please feel free to email us at with any questions!
