THE 10th ANNUAL fourth of july celebratory WORKSHOP with Erik Dalton & special Guests!

LEVELING THE HEAD & TAIL (24CE)

Techniques for Tension, Trauma, & Weak Posture

In this fun-filled 24-CE workshop, you will learn cutting-edge myoskeletal techniques for treating your client’s primary pain and injury complaints. The overriding theme of this 3-day event is to level the head-on-neck and the lumbar spine-on-sacrum. You’ll find this simple routine triggers a dramatic calming and pain-reducing effect on your client’s hyperactive nervous system.

No matter what type of pain or injury complaint your clients present with, don’t let them get out the door without first attempting to level the head and tail!

WHY?
The brain loves to sit on a level platform to allow maximum head-on-neck rotation. Scientists believe we evolved this head righting instinct to help our early ancestors better track prey. But a “catch-22” often occurs when a poorly aligned spinal column initiates head and low back righting reflexes that cause the brain to layer the area with reactive muscle spasm. In this scenario, some muscles overwork; others turn off resulting in reduced mobility, excessive energy consumption, exhaustion, and, if the brain perceives threat… pain!

In this 3-day event with Erik Dalton you will learn Myoskeletal Techniques to help reduce:

  • head pain
  • low back spasm
  • cervical stiffness
  • functional scoliosis
  • hip & SI joint irritation
  • sciatica
  • nerve compression syndromes
  • protective muscle guarding

Join Erik in this once a year workshop to upgrade your skill set and boost your referrals with Erik Dalton’s extremely popular ‘hands-on’ pain-rehab techniques. Learn WHY they work, and HOW to change the brain’s mind about your client’s pain…the MAT way!

SPECIAL GUEST PRESENTERS

In this presentation, Gil will share insights from his four-month-long deep dive into the human nervous system, and relate that to the larger human picture of life with a big brain and millions of sensory nerve endings. Bring your brain, and expect it to grow many, many new connections in 3 hours!

In this one-hour presentation with Dr. Kesinger, you will learn how to recognize skin lumps and bumps, the ones that are normal and the ones that stand out as red flags for your clients to get checked on by a specialist. The knowledge you will gain from “Lumps & Bumps…what’s OK and what needs a referral” will serve as an invaluable reference tool to integrate into your practice.
