Upgrade your Skills & Party on the Riverwalk. Join Erik and the Dalton Gang for another big Labor Day celebration. We will again be hosting this fun filled – affordable 24 CE – 70% hands-on seminar at Oklahoma City’s beautiful Cox Convention Center.

With Special Guests: Til Luchau, James Waslaski, Drew Freedman, Art Riggs, Sue Hitzmann, Rick Garbowski, and featured guest presenter Whitney Lowe. Whitney will be teaching the Saturday afternoon class. Following his presentation our special guest educators will be available in various stations where they will perform demos of their specializations and answer any questions you have.

40 Head-to-Toe Techniques for Better Mobility, Flexibility & Durabiity

Technique can be viewed as the foundation for all bodywork skills and is as individual as your signature. In this 70% hands-on workshop Erik will explain the importance of developing great table-side skills to better communicate with your client. He will also discuss the fine art of history-taking, physical assessment and clinical reasoning when dealing with clients that are moving poorly or who are in pain.

Learning good technique is not only a study in proper body mechanics, direction of pressure and hands-on skills, it also allows us to better express ourselves in a more colorful and versatile way. The more tools we have to create these effects, the better our technique and the richer our work.

This Myoskeletal Technique workshop will address connective tissue and joint mobility issues in these structures:

  • Ankles, knees & feet
  • Hip capsules
  • Hamstrings, quads & psoas
  • Gluteals & hip external rotators
  • Sciatic, femoral & obturator nerves
  • Multifidus, QL, erector spinae & deep spinal groove muscles
  • Diaphragm, scalenes & other muscles of respiration
  • Ribs & t-spine
  • Sternoclavicular, acromioclavicular & glenohumeral joints
  • Neck, head, & jaw (muscles, nerves & joints)

This popular event features special video animation, anatomy dissection and dozens of head-to-toe techniques that stimulate the visual learner, while relaxed practice sessions with Erik’s highly skilled teaching assistants delight kinesthetically attuned therapists. You will learn the importance of technique development, and how to better explain pain, attract clients & increase revenue.

Using Assessment to Drive Your Treatment

Effectiveness in treating pain and injury conditions depends on a good understanding of the client’s current condition. Orthopedic assessment is the most efficient and accurate way to understand what is really going on with our clients in so many cases. This presentation focuses on fundamentals of orthopedic assessment and how assessment drives treatment decisions for numerous pain and injury conditions. Particular focus will be on active engagement techniques and how to apply them all over the body.

 

Professionals and schools use Lowe’s texts, Orthopedic Assessment in Massage Therapy and Orthopedic Massage: Theory and Technique. He currently directs the NCBTMB Clinical Rehabilitative Massage Specialty Certificate Program, which includes the profession’s most comprehensive online training program in science-based rehabilitative massage.
