Myofascial Release - From Surface to the Depths

Why take this Continuing Education Course?

This two day beginning to intermediate level course has been designed to provide medical professionals with the information and techniques needed to treat myofascial restrictions. Anatomy and physiology of fascia and its relationship to proper physiological function will be discussed throughout the course. This course will provide extensive laboratory time to develop assessment and palpation skills to identify and treat fascial restrictions. Techniques for surface and deep membranes, joints, selected organs and rib excursion enhancement will enhance the clinicians ability to develop more comprehensive evaluation and treatment programs for orthopedic conditions, neurological problems, chronic pain and sports injuries. The techniques can benefit patients of all ages with fascial restrictions and bring better balance back to the patients body.
