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.’

Learn 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.

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!!"
~Karen
