Myofascial release is a quick and powerful method of releasing pain and tension in the body, your clients will benefit as it allows you to go straight to the area of pain such as the back, neck, hips etc.
It addresses the fascia surrounding any and all the tissues of the body, facilitating the release of any unnecessary tension patterns and allows those tissues to function at their optimum
This course is designed for the therapist looking to add these techniques to their existing skills, so they are available to use straight away.
MFR is a great adjunct to the skills of any massage, manual, or physical therapist
Myofascial Release is the new “buzz” word in massage and bodywork. It is the missing link, making it highly recommended as an invaluable tool to add to your existing practice.
This course will give you an excellent insight into the palpation and treatment of:
Hip: Chronic tension patterns, that can predispose to osteoarthritis
Knee: Knee pain can be indicative of established tension patterns in hips, quadriceps and hamstrings, with knock effects affecting the menisci
Shoulder:shoulders and necks cannot be considered or treated separately from each other
Neck:Whiplash can be a frequent cause here, sometimes without apparent trauma. Few neck problems are acute, most are chronic with acute episodes causing neck, head and shoulder problems, leading to wear and tear later
Ankle: With learned tension patterns higher in the leg, these can express themselves down in the ankle
Lower back: It is said that mothers and builders spend their lives bending and picking things up. Even if you aren’t either of these, a lot of tension patterns are ignored until they cannot move because of the pain
This is an absolute ‘must’ for the serious massage therapist that is looking for techniques to help release pain and tension of their patient and clients. It will help you stand out from the crowd with a powerful routine you are sure to be recommended by your clients!
Course Fee: €250
