Description
This class will give the participant an entirely new way to look at treating the soft-tissue system of the whole body. The focus is to integrate Myofascial Release, passive and active movement, and functional movement. The participant will learn to diagnose and treat the myofascial system while incorporating the peripheral nervous system, the fascial system, and the muscular system. Each participant will be able to walk away from the class with an ability to perform fascial release techniques based on Releasing with Movement. This technique incorporates direct muscle releases while lengthening and shortening the muscle both passively and actively. This allows the dysfunctional motor units to normalize and immediately start to work in a normal way again in functional movement patterns.
As with all of our manual therapy courses, this seminar will follow a progression of principles and reinforce them throughout the 16 hours, is at least 75% hands-on lab, and will give the clinician hands-on skills they use immediately upon their return to the clinical setting.
