Advanced Myofascial & Myoskeletal Seminar

Advanced Myofascial & Myoskeletal Techniques for the Shoulder, Neck & Head

Presented by Til Luchau & Aubrey Gowing

Join internationally renowned educators, Til Luchau and Aubrey Gowing for three days of exceptional training.

In this very special Shoulder, Neck and Head Seminar, you will learn practical and effective approaches for finding and treating chronic cervical, cranial and shoulder pain problems.

The Myoskeletal shoulder techniques pioneered by renowned manual therapy innovator Erik Dalton combine soft tissue and joint stretching routines that positively impact the brain's sensory receptor system. By downgrading noxious input to the central nervous system, the client experiences less protective muscle guarding, reduced stress, and enhanced pain relief. Aubrey will add his unique perspective by providing participants with an "easy to grasp" formula for assessing and treating common conditions such as rotator cuff tendinopathy and radicular nerve entrapment pain.

Til Luchau will present two of his excellent Advanced-Trainings modules.
NECK, JAW, & HEAD, Part I & Part II:
