The Certified Pediatric Massage Therapist Course (CPMT) is coming to the "The City of Roses", Portland, Oregon. This Accredited 2-day intensive professional training, taught by Master Teacher Tina Allen, will be held at TLC Alberta, located in the Alberta Arts District of Portland, Oregon.
When first visiting the Alberta Arts District, you will be struck with the cohesion among the variety of art galleries, restaurants, and local businesses.
With so much to see and do along this busy, narrow street, the Alberta Arts District can be a great place to explore on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon.
Located along Alberta Street in northeast Portland, the Alberta Arts District exemplifies what has made Portland so well known: local businesses which rely on sustainable business practices to create quality goods. The neighborhood gets its name from its dedication to local art. PortlandNeighborhoods.com explains that nearly every business “functions as a gallery with a rotating roster of artists represented on their walls, one begins to understand the full nature of this community’s devotion to art.”
The best way to experience the neighborhood is during its monthly street fair. On the third Thursday of each month, Alberta Street comes alive with vendors and musicians filling the streets. Walking up and down the street, you can talk with local residents about what they are selling and have fun discovering what is on display.
If you want to gain a deeper perspective of art, the Alberta Arts District also has a number of wonderful private galleries. Many are clustered between 15th and 30th Street. Walking through the neighborhood, you can have a look at the art on display while also sampling the other local businesses. Guardino Gallery gives you a taste of contemporary art and craft, hosting monthly openings. Onda Arte Latina is another good choice as it shows inventive contemporary art focused on art from Latin America.
In terms of food and restaurants, Alberta offers a wide array of choices. From sit-down restaurants to food carts, there seems to be something for every budget and taste. The best Thai for dining or take-out is Thai Noon. For a traditional sit down meal, al Forno Ferruzza cooks traditional Sicilian food with their specialty being thin-crusted pizza.
There are also inventive food carts such as the Grilled Cheese Grill, offering cheap and delicious food. For fresh fruit juice and smoothies, Inspire is housed inside a cute red trolley car.
The Alberta Arts District shows off many of Portland’s burgeoning local businesses. With such a variety in a few blocks, you can amaze Portland visitors with a quality perspective inside the creative mind of the Rose City.

Finally, an accredited pediatric massage certification program for healthcare professionals who wish to expand their practice by providing massage therapy and nurturing touch for pediatric clients. The Liddle Kidz Foundation Certification course is an intense, fun and effective way to master the core skills of pediatric massage.
Founded by master teacher and philanthropist Tina Allen, the Liddle Kidz Foundation offers a new, comprehensive, research based training course and teaches students what they really need to know to provide pediatric massage.
Any experienced professional will tell you that there is a world of difference between learning how to massage a child from a book or DVD, and knowing how to provide the best care to meet a child’s needs, however, there are few opportunities to learn the skills they really need from a working healthcare professional who has provided pediatric massage education throughout the world.
As a CPMT, you have the special opportunity to provide specialized care through touch therapy to children who need it most.
