What participants are saying about our CMT 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. Already two weeks after taking the course I am getting improved results with my clients.”
This visually stimulating Upper & Lower Extremity seminar is based on Aubrey Gowing’s assessment and treatment protocols. This sequencing can help therapists quickly identify and treat common pain-producing conditions such as Tibial rotation, Talar dysfunction, muscle imbalance and foot Pain, Carpal tunnel, elbow and wrist pain. This seminar is specially designed for practicing therapists who wish to dramatically improve treatment outcomes and shorten the route to success with each client.
You will practice pain-free techniques that simultaneously address joint issues, utilise neurological responses and treat soft tissues to increase hydration and pliability.
‘Restore joint space and the nervous system will reduce guarding.’
Learn to access and treat deep tissues without excessive force, mobilise joints and address myofascial restrictions. By mastering this treatment approach, you will be able to quickly unlock chronic pain conditions.
Time: 9:00am to 5pm Venue: Holistic College Dublin, 14 Main Street, Swords, County Dublin.
