February 2-5, 2015
8:30am - 1:30pm
Upon completion of this class, you will have received hours of personal treatment and will have the confidence to immediately incorporate effective Myofascial Release techniques into your practice.

Myofascial Release is a mindful whole-body approach very effective in reducing pain and improving mobility. It is a true blend of the art and science of manual therapy using accurate assessment and treatment tools without abandoning the vast resources that we have in our intuition.

Myofascial Release: Next Level


COURSE SUMMARY
The course will focus on health as expressed through the fascial system, as you explore the body as a living experience. It is designed to offer a deeper understanding of the function and dynamic role that fascia plays in our health and well being. Emphasis will be on further developing the therapists proprioceptive and intuitive skills, principles of healing, unwinding and the treatment of the pelvis, abdomen, head and jaw.

Anthony McMorran, RMT, NCTMB with Darrell Dye, RMT and/or Katie McMorran, PT will offer the participants a unique and profound perspective in working with this extensive tissue system to affect all aspects of a person's being and health.

There is a commitment to learning that is both informative and experiential and this course will allow the participant to not only learn as a therapist but also the chance to be transformed through addressing your own issues. Through individual and group work exploring transference and counter transference the therapist will gain a deeper understanding of how clients can act as mirrors and show us our own unmet needs. With this insight and perspective the therapist can avoid many of the issues that lead to burnout and treatment dissatisfaction.
