Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques for Treating Trapped Nerves


This course is fully booked! Please contact the college office is you wish to go onto the cancellation list!

Attend our 3 day workshop - Fri 5th, Sat 6th & Sun 7th of May 2023

The Treating Trapped Nerves workshop, based on Erik Dalton’s Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques* will allow you to incorporate exciting and effective new myofascial deep tissue techniques, joint mobilisation and nerve flossing into your existing skill set. Learn techniques to treat the tissues involved in nerve tethering and how to use neural tensioning and flossing to untether nerves to relieve muscle guarding, alleviate pain and improve function. This nerve mobilizing aspect is often the missing key in therapy sessions that can quickly unlock chronic pain conditions.

  This Seminar is fully booked!


In this workshop, you will learn practical and effective approaches for finding and treating chronic cervical and pelvic dysfunctions that influence upper and lower limb neurological pain problems. More specifically, you’ll learn neurological tensioning and neural flossing techniques to improve common neuropathies such as sciatica and thoracic outlet. Many of these neurological compressions can mimic sports injuries and repetitive strain conditions such as golfers and tennis elbow, carpal and tarsal tunnel, plantar fasciitis and shin splints.

Our goal is to enhance your skills, improve your results, and build your practice to a level of excellence that goes beyond the standard expectation of what can be achieved through bodywork. Be prepared for outstanding results, even with long standing chronic conditions!

What participants are saying about our workshops:

"This course was well thought out, well structured, with plenty of useful techniques and enough time to understand their purpose, the application and the assessment of the result. Personally, I have already used all of the techniques and found them very effective. I don’t think I have taken away as much usable techniques before and felt fully confident of them..."


"I am approaching this learning from the perspective of an experienced hospital doctor and my eyes are being opened to the potential for improvement in pain, function and quality of life if we simply employ both the skill and art of touch. Touch has lost status as a diagnostic tool as we favour the objectiveness of imaging. However, touch is both diagnostic and therapeutic. I feel that medical training needs to embrace the power of touch.."

"I absolutely loved the whole thing. I learned so many new techniques that I can’t wait to start using with clients with really clear instructions as to how and when to apply."

"Aubrey's answers connected many dots (pieces of knowledge that I had acquired over the years from various sources) that I had formulated hypotheses of but I had not connected with scientific support. I am very glad he was so eloquently and concisely present them to us. My key take away is "Take more courses from Aubrey!"."
