Description

Do you ever feel as if you’re playing that frustrating game of chasing pain with your patients without lasting results? Exercise and medication are limited in their effects on chronic pain; and a schedule full of patients needing manual therapy can leave you feeling exhausted and ultimately weaken your treatment.

Experience a breakthrough in your practice by bringing lasting change to your patients with myofascial release. Even if you already use some of the techniques or are familiar with the theory, this intensive training refines your skills and goes a long way in making your work more efficient and effective.

After this training recording with a master clinician in myofascial release and soft-tissue mobilization, you’ll begin to see a dramatic increase in functional mobility in your patients while simultaneously saving your hands for your next patient. Where symptoms in the past seemed elusive and remote in the body, you’ll now have the skills to assess the fascial impairments and pinpoint the underlying barriers to release the tension and pain that ultimately impairs function and activity.

Be precise in how you differentiate between myofascial pain and fibromyalgia and identify what motion limitations there are with simple biomechanical screenings. Release painful trigger points and tension rapidly, improve circulation, increase flexibility, and restore alignment for documentable functional outcomes - all in just 2 days.

This intensive training sets you apart as a highly qualified and skilled soft tissue professional. You’ll be recognized for your advanced skills in soft-tissue mobilization, making your practice more marketable with results patients are will to pay for.
