Pain or imbalance is not the body’s normal or natural state. The body does not want to be in pain or remain in a dysfunctional state. The nervous system is always striving to regain a balanced, homeostatic environment. It is just waiting for the client and the therapist to provide the right kind of leadership. In this 70% hands-on “Pelvis, Spine and Torso” Myoskeletal Techniques seminar, therapists will learn practical and effective approaches for assessing and correcting chronic pain and posture conditions caused by tension, trauma and weak posture.
