FASCIAL DECOMPRESSION WORKSHOP
In this two day, in-class (14 hour) workshop, students will improve their palpation skills in feeling fascial restrictions to gently decompress those restrictions. Students will also acquire knowledge about the nervous system and its connection to connective tissue and its influence on patient health. The students will gain confidence on how to treat specific injuries and postural imbalances in a way that utilizes less pressure as well as develop skills to help patients with fascial health concerns. In essence, this course will empower students to become better at decompressing fascial restrictions via theory and practical technique applications. The techniques taught are gentle in their application for both the patient and the therapist; and is fantastic for both structural therapists and those who wish to practice a softer therapeutic approach.
This workshop is designed for massage therapists and other practitioners with hands-on rehabilitative certifications or degrees. A basic understanding of anatomy and physiology is essential in order to expand myofascial release knowledge and tactile ability.
