6 CE hours of this 12 CE course will be spent on Active Assisted LOWER Body Stretching (AAS). This intensive, hands-on, training teaches you a comprehensive, effective stretching protocol for the lower body. Active Assisted Active Assisted Stretching (AAS) energizes the body, enhances the health of the tissues, increases flexibility, protects the body from injury, enhances the healing process, re-aligns the fascia and makes building strength more effective. Active Assisted Stretching is especially good for athletes, the elderly, and the injured, and can also benefit the neurologically impaired.
What sets AAS apart from other stretching routines is it is not overly strenuous to the practitioner and it is easy to learn.
The client actively participates in the stretching process, with a gentle, timed, targeted assist from the therapist at the end of every stretch to increase range of motion along with many other benefits. These techniques are much easier on the therapist’s body than massage and bodywork. During this workshop you can practice along with instructor demonstrations, in sequence, with little effort.
The lower body stretches include the low back, hip, thigh, knee, lower leg, foot and ankle. To perform the lower body stretches, we recommend investing in a a stretching strap of any kind plus a special seat belt to afix the client to the table. These can be purchased at Stretchingusa.com. Similar straps can be found on amazon and other retailers. Feel free to order straps after the training or not at all - the choice is yours!

***When reviewing all massage and bodywork appointment possibilities, we consider Lower Body Work with Advanced Foot Massage to to be a "Socially Distant Service". "Socially Distance Service" is a term coined by CE Institute LLC, and we qualify socially distant services under two distinct appointment categories:
- Services that provide a maximum distance between a client and practitioner's airway
- Do-It-Yourself (DIY) services that a client can enjoy on their own without constant physical presence or attention from the practitioner
The best way to prevent the acquisition and transmission of COVID-19 is self-isolate, so if you must work, try to work with socially-distant appointments and services which could possibly minimize your risk with COVID-19!

Active Assisted Stretching Coursework was Produced by Ben Benjamin.
The advanced medical foot massage class was written by CE Institute LLC Founder, Selena Belisle. Selena Belisle teaches the majority of advanced classes at CE Institute LLC.
Selena has been practicing massage therapy for 30 years. She started when she was competing on Team USA in the Athens Greece Olympic Stadium for her 1st World Championship title. She went on to win 3 WAF World Titles in Arm Wresting and other various minor sport titles. After the height of her professional athletic career, Selena sought formal “full body” massage therapy training in 1995 in a 1,000+ hour program at the Massage Institute of New England in Cambridge, Massachusetts – the same city where other schools such as MIT and Harvard University are located.
Selena endured a serious life-threatening motorcycle accident after graduating from massage school. She awoke from a coma, temporarily paralyzed, blind, on advanced life support, with a severe brain injury, sepsis plus overwhelming organ and orthopedic damage and trauma. She spent the majority of a Summer in the Boston Medical Center between the SICU and floor where she "coded" several times. Once discharged, Selena was sent home emaciated (90 lbs), in casts, unable to walk, work or lie flat (supine or prone) and in need of multiple follow-up surgeries. She overcame this accident through daily massage and regular chiropractic/acupuncture holistic care. Selena rehabilitated herself all the way back into professional athletics and won her last U.S. National Arm Wrestling title 8 years after this devastating accident. Selena has a profound knowledge and interest in the human body and how to achieve its optimal health, healing and function.
Selena’s education in advanced modalities include numerous Paul St. John Neuromuscular Therapy live class Certifications, live Myofascial Release courses with John Barnes, Robert King and George Kousaleos of the CORE Institute, live class Traditional Chinese Medicine Certifications from the Beijing Hospital and New England School of Acupuncture as well as hundreds of other live and online classes and trainings. Selena also managed over 40 massage therapists, 4 acupuncturists and 4 chiropractors in an alternative health care practice which she founded in Braintree & Quincy, Massachusetts from 1996 to 2005 (which she successfully sold). Selena also worked on various athletes from the New England Patriots during the time that they succeeded to legendary status. She spent 5-years training and managing a 2nd staff as a Newbury Street Spa Owner in Boston, MA.
