February Myoskeletal Weekend Seminar

Fully booked. Please fill out an application form if you would like to go onto the cancellation list!

Add a new Skeletal dimension to your therapy practice with Myoskeletal Therapy - ‘Techniques Tour’ seminar.

*Venue: Holistic College Dublin, Unit 5, 14 Main Street, Swords, County Dublin.

Our New Myoskeletal Therapy™ Pelvis and Extremities seminar will allow you to incorporate exciting and effective new deep tissue, joint mobilisation, and myofascial techniques into your existing skill set. Learn techniques to treat bones and their joints as you would other tissues, using the bones as leavers to mobilize soft tissues. This Joint mobilizing aspect is often the missing key in therapy sessions that can quickly unlock chronic pain conditions.

‘If a Joint is not moving freely, the surrounding soft tissue will be dysfunctional.’

On our February Myoskeletal Weekend Seminar you will learn practical and effective approaches for finding and treating chronic pain problems in the Shoulders, Arms, wrist and hand as well as Pelvis, legs and feet. 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!

Dates:

  • Saturday 17th & Sunday 18th of February 2018

Times: 10am to 6pm

Venue: Holistic College Dublin, Unit 5, 14 Main Street, Swords, County Dublin.

What participants are saying about our Myoskeletal Seminars:

"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..."

"The course added a vital layer of understanding to bodywork over sports and orthopaedic massage which focuses more on myofascial. The application of the myoskeletal along side myofascial makes for very powerful work. Also the extra focus on techniques for awakening the nervous system of weaker muscles brought this into more clarity. And this is such a vital area. Already two weeks after taking the course I am getting improved results with my clients."
