In 2011, I graduated Heritage institute as a massage therapist where I felt I received a good basic education. My passion for the work inspired me to seek continuing education to expand my skill-set so I could greater serve my clients. I surfed the web experimenting with various modalities and attended several seminars and all were helpful to a degree, but nothing rang my bell until I came across some articles and videos on Erik Dalton’s Freedom From Pain website.
I immediately ordered his “Techniques Tour” home study course and realized I had found my manual therapy path. I would stay up late in the evening after having done massage all day just to watch the videos and read the in-depth biomechanical explanations on conditions I was seeing in my practice every day particularly low back and neck pain. My first confirmation that I was on the right path was when I was able to help a lady diagnosed with severe rotator cuff impingement and scheduled for surgery. It was such a great feeling of joy for both of us when her orthopedist declared that the tendinopathy seemed to be healing and he saw no need for surgery at that time.
It was a thrill to attend Erik’s 6thannual workshop in Oklahoma City in June where several other therapists and I were awarded their Master Myoskeletal Therapist (MMT) diplomas in front of 160 other enthusiastic attendees. What an honor to be part of an elite group of like-minded therapists.
I’m looking forward to attending one of Paul Kelly’s MAT workshops to keep the flame burning inside me and I’ll definitely be back next year to the Oklahoma City or Costa Rica event. This was the best decision I could have made. It’s astonishing how many more referrals I am receiving and how much more confidence I have in my chosen path.
