Description

Balance is arguably the most needed but least trained sense we have. Learn how multiple inputs come together to create our sense of balance and that our eyes, ears and soft tissues all play a role in influencing this system. From no tech to high tech, you’ll learn how to simply, safely and effectively evaluate your client’s balance and create a measurable progression towards improvement with fun and engaging techniques.
