Welcome to the CO-AMTA
2018 Fall Education Event and Chapter Meeting
This fall we will be hosting our education event in beautiful Glenwood Springs CO once again. Please join us at the Glenwood Springs Community Center on the weekend of September 29th – 30th 2018 for a wonderful weekend of education and general joyful behavior!!
For this education event the CO-AMTA will be learning from Lori Dowiak. Lori received a BS from the University of Pittsburgh, in physical therapy. She has extensive training in orthopedic and manual therapies through continuing education programs. As owner of Bloomfield Therapy, she provides manual therapies for all age groups; she also acts as both a presenter and teaching assistant for IAHE and is wonderful instructor with the Barrel Institute.
In this 12 hour course we will be introduced to the role of Visceral Manipulation in assisting functional and structural imbalances throughout the body including musculoskeletal, vascular, nervous, urogenital, respiratory, digestive and lymphatic dysfunction. You can learn more about this impactful treatment at: https://www.barralinstitute.com/index.php
The course cost is $90.00 and is approved through the NCBTMB for 12 CE hours for massage therapists. This is only an introducation to visceral manipulation and not a certification course!!! Please be aware that your registration includes the chapter meeting! You do not need to sign up for the chapter meeting if you are attending the course.
Because this event will be running from 9:00 AM to 4:00 pm on Saturday and Sunday, the chapter is planning on a social gathering for the evening of Saturday the 29th at the Glenwood Springs Hot Springs Pool. If you would like to join the Colorado Chapter for this social event of soaking and stress reduction you must register and pay for it in advance. If you decide last minute to join us you will still be able to attend but you will not receive the group rate.
For hotel accomodations you can reserve a room at Courtyard Marriott Glenwood Springs by using this link. The hotel is located across the street from the Community Center and about a 5 minute drive from downtown.

In Total Body Balancing 1 (TBB1), you will be taught a 5-phase treatment template that can be done in as little as 20 minutes balancing the patient’s body in supine, prone, side lying (left/right) and finishing off in the sitting position.
It has been the personal experience of course developer Dr. Kerry D’Ambrogio, that there is a tendency to treat the patient’s symptoms at the site of pain instead of searching for the root cause of their complaint.
The majority of feedback he receives from healthcare practitioners is that they understand how to perform the individual techniques taught in manual therapy courses but they have a difficult time knowing which techniques to use and how to integrate them during a treatment session. This seminar has been designed to answer these questions.
– Gain an understanding of the history, principles, and neuromuscular basis of classical osteopathy and Total Body Balancing.
– Understand the causes of the Total Body Lesion and the nature of a vital mechanism.
– Conduct a thorough full-body orthopedic evaluation for the spine (cervical, thoracic and lumbar), rib cage, pelvis, sacrum (lumbo-sacral, and sacro-iliac joints), upper and lower extremities.
– Chart your results and formulate a treatment plan.
– Decide on the proper sequence of treating the Total Body Lesion
– Perform a 5 phase full-body Total Body Balancing routine in supine, prone, side lying (left/right), and sitting.
– Understand the clinical importance of Total Body Balancing and the treatment of joint and muscular skeletal dysfunctions.
– Integrate Total Body Balancing with other treatment modalities such as Muscle Energy Technique, Positional Release Therapy, CranioSacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation, and Lymphatic Balancing.
