Want to have fun while getting your CEs? Spend two days with Pete Whitridge exploring deep tissue structures of the lower body that are at the root of most client pain.
- Refine your touching skills and gain new confidence
- Deepen your knowledge of anatomy and fascial structures
- Teach your clients to work with you during therapy
- Eliminate chronic pain by working below the client's pain threshold
- Slow down, focus your attention, be more effective with less effort
This workshop explores the Foundation, focusing on the sacral ligaments, hip socket, psoas, and knee and ankle pain. This is a multi-disciplinary approach to pain. We will use orthopedic assessments, passive and active fascial stretching, muscle energy techniques, hydrotherapies, and cross fiber friction to help identify and eliminate pain and dysfunction. You will have the opportunity to dialogue about your own specific client needs and learn self-care strategies to help clients maintain pain free movement. We will review current findings from the Fascia Research Congress while exploring the unique nature of the connective tissues!
This class is designed to help you pinpoint problem areas quickly, devise strategies to eliminate pain, and work collaboratively with your client. You will receive lots of bodywork, learn new ways to handle clients with chronic pain, and reconnect with fellow massage therapists. You will leave this class with new skills and confidence in helping your clients be pain free!
Class is Saturday and Sunday from 9:00am to 6:00pm. NCBTMB approved provider.
