If you are new to myoskeletal alignment techniques, start with this is the comprehensive foundational course. In this eCourse you will learn how to:

  • Create a plan for each session using a thorough 5-minute intake evaluation
  • Identify aberrant functional movements that cause protective muscle guarding
  • Talk to your clients about their pain and make them feel heard and safe
  • Upgrade your hands-on skills through a wide variety of deep tissue, joint stretching, and nerve mobilization techniques
  • Work as a team with your clients through corrective exercise homework
  • Earn 20 CE hours for state and national licensure while providing hands-on tools you’ll use for years to come

Many clients seek therapeutic bodywork for unmanageable neck and low back pain caused by poor postural habits, loss of function and the inability to cope with their condition. As one of my mentors Vladimir Janda describes in his Upper & Lower-Crossed Syndrome model, poor posture can weaken important supporting muscles and tax others. As gravitational exposure degrades function, the client may notice that they no longer have the ability to rotate their head in all directions and that their low back hurts as they bend to pick up an object from the floor. Nerve impingement, strains and sprains alters normal muscle activation patterns and the brain “maps” the dysfunction as normal.

A Masterpiece…

After taking all courses to achieve my Master Myoskeletal Therapist certification, I thought this would be a great review.  But this is an amazing course that is different from the original book. Erik condensed and updated a masterpiece. As a Master Myoskeletal Therapist I would highly recommend this course to everyone.
