One of the most common causes of pain in the body arises from a postural pattern named the “Upper Cross Syndrome” by Vladimir Janda. Involving several muscle groups in the neck, shoulders and upper back, this condition is a likely source of discomfort for many of your massage clients.
The prevalence of the Upper Crossed Syndrome inspired Dalton to develop a simple and highly effective set of manual therapy maneuvers, the “Dirty Dozen,” to begin correcting the misalignment and decrease the discomfort it causes. Each of these maneuvers is illustrated on the Dirty Dozen Poster for easy reference while working with a client. The instructional manual accompanying the poster gives further detail and step-by-step instructions.
The information contained in these reference materials can be utilized over and over to help relieve chronic neck, scapula and rib pain.
This set includes a 2ft x 3ft laminated wall poster and a 12-page, full-color workbook. It’s a perfect complement to the Technique Tour Master MAT Course.
