London Myoskeletal Seminar

Add a new Skeletal dimension to your therapy practice with Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques seminar.

Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th of March

Venue: University College of Osteopathy, 275 Borough High Street, London SE1 6LN

Our New London Myoskeletal Therapy™ Neck and Upper Extremity Myoskeletal Weekend Seminar you will learn practical and effective approaches for finding and treating chronic Cervical, Thoracic and Upper Extremity pain problems. Additionally, you’ll learn biomechanical techniques to address osseous structures as you would other tissues, using the bones as levers to mobilise soft tissues. This joint mobilising aspect is often the missing link that stimulates the nervous system to quickly unlock chronic pain conditions.

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

Based on the foundational work of Erik Dalton's Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques (MAT), this workshop will teach you how to incorporate innovative and effective deep tissue, joint mobilisation, Myofascial techniques into your existing skill set.
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 traditional bodywork training. Be prepared for outstanding results, even with long standing chronic conditions!

 

Dates: Saturday 16th & Sunday 17th of March 2019

Times: 9:00am to 6pm

Venue: University College of Osteopathy, 275 Borough High Street, London SE1 6LN

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."
~Alana.

"Your course has revitalised my love for therapy, it's been invaluable to my business and I'm way happier with my work. I'm eternally grateful!!"
