People in pain care about one thing - getting out of pain. You see the frustration and even desperation in your patients and more than anything want to play an active role in improving their quality of life. One of the most effective ways to provide immediate symptom relief is to address trigger points, myofascial pain and hypertonicity with hands on therapies.
In this one training, you will get exposure to the most powerful evidence-based soft tissue techniques available to address trigger points, myofascial pain and hypertonicity. You will also be able to skillfully apply cupping, positional release, use of foam rollers and massage guns.
More than instruction in techniques, you will build a foundation in the anatomy and function of fascia in both normal and pathological conditions. With over 40 years of clinical experience as both a physical therapist AND massage therapist, Dr. Theresa Schmidt seamlessly blends masterful application of technique along with the science that supports it while maintaining a constant emphasis on function. She’ll shed light on the significance of soft tissue dysfunction in relation to the neuromuscular influence in pain perception and loss of mobility.
This all translates to accomplishing more with less, working smarter not harder. In the spirit of working smarter, you will also discover how to use these tools to promote proper body mechanics while reducing stress on your hands in order to keep doing what you love for years to come. Purchase this training that brings the best of soft tissue techniques together in one training as you acquire skills you will use for the duration of your career!
