Foundations in Myofascial Release I

Foundations I is the perfect entry point for therapists looking to expand their skill and understanding of manual therapy and pain relief.

An understanding of the potential impact that soft tissue tightness can play in pain is discussed, along with newer models of pain science and the introduction of treatment from a nervous system perspective. We will look at the strengths and limitations of a bio-mechanical/postural weighted evaluation and treatment paradigm and how it compares and contrasts with a nervous system approach. There is much overlap between the two when it comes to treatment, and this is where the Foundations Seminar approach shines. A deep model of evaluation taught as a basis of all Myofascial Release treatment. Foundations I heavily emphasize specific treatment techniques, including compressive, cross-handed, single direction releases, as well as MyoMobilization™, a more effective and gentle alternative to traditional soft tissue mobilization. Therapists who have taken other myofascial release seminars comment positively on the large percentage of seminar time spent learning techniques and the “feel” of myofascial release. Most importantly, you will leave this seminar prepared to begin using myofascial release on your first day back to work. You will be taught to utilize anatomy in ways that other seminar lines ignore; knowledge of the anatomy of the nervous system will allow an easy transition into treatment.

Here are some comments from attendees at recent Foundations in Myofascial Release Seminars:

“Refreshing approach compared to the rigid structure of other MFR courses. Softer is better!”

“Very informative; I can easily apply what I learned in class to my clients.”

“Excellent demonstration of techniques accompanied by clear and straightforward explanation. Very nice range, accommodating different levels of student knowledge and skill base.”

“(strengths of the seminar were the) demonstrations and the ability to coordinate with other professions, as well as the time allotted to practice the techniques.”

“I loved the lecture/demo right into the hands-on for each technique. It made it easy to learn them.”

“Getting right into learning the work without sitting through a long nebulous monologue was refreshing!”

“Lots of hands-on experience, instructor easy to approach, helpful when Walt felt what I was doing”

“Walt made everything easy to understand and answered all questions effectively and honestly”
