Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques for NECK & UPPER Extremity

In our Neck and Upper Extremity Myoskeletal Weekend Seminar you will learn practical and effective approaches for finding and treating chronic Cervical, Thoracic and Upper Extremity pain problems. Additionally, you’ll learn biomechanical techniques to address osseous structures as you would other tissues, using the bones as levers to mobilise soft tissues. This joint mobilising aspect is often the missing link that stimulates the nervous system to quickly unlock chronic pain conditions.

Based on the foundational work of Erik Dalton’s Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques (MAT), this workshop will teach you how to incorporate innovative and effective deep tissue, joint mobilisation, Myofascial techniques into your existing skill set.

Our goal is to enhance your skills, improve your results, and build your practice to a level of excellence that goes beyond the standard expectation of what can be achieved through traditional bodywork training. Be prepared for outstanding results, even with long standing chronic conditions!
