This popular series of seminars presents practicing somatic therapists and qualified students with advanced and little-known myofascial techniques which can be easily incorporated into existing personal styles. Drawing on a wide range of disciplines, the focus is on unusual, interesting, and fresh approaches that will both expand technique repertoire and inspire creativity and innovation. Potential topics include:

Specific techniques for common structural and functional complaints
Relieving pain, restoring lost function, and getting lasting results
Utilizing both active and passive movement to enhance effectiveness
Precision in working with specific tissue types and body layers
Combining indirect or subtle work with deep or direct work
Tracking subtle psychophysiological and nervous system responses
Ways to work sensitively, safely, and comfortably at very deep levels.

Class size and student/teacher ratio are kept small for maximum personal attention. Participants also receive a detailed course manual/note organizer with photos of techniques covered. Videos of instructor demonstrations are also available for post-workshop practice and review. Workshop fee includes the option of a free listing in the Advanced Myofascial Techniques on-line practitioner's directory. Participants will be sent a brief list of anatomical structures to review prior to the course or go to www.advanced-trainings.com/anatreview.html to see that list now.

The Advanced Myofascial Techniques workshop series presents a comprehensive system for working with the body in its entirety, encompassing over 20 session sequences and more than 200 techniques, tests, and procedures. Workshops in the series may be taken individually, or combined in any order. The five courses include:

Arm, Wrist, & Shoulder
Pelvis, Hip, & Sacrum
Legs, Knees, & Feet
Neck, Jaw, & Head
Spine, Ribs, & Low Back

Prerequisite: This course is limited to trained practitioners and students of hands-on body therapies (for example, Bodyworkers, Physical Therapists, Rolfers, Chiropractors, Structural Integration Practitioners, Massage Therapists, Neuro-Muscular Therapists, and other somatic practitioners). Students of these disciplines with at least 250 hours of hands-on training and/or instructor approval may also be accepted. Feel free to contact us directly about prerequisites or course content.

Each 2-day course provides 12-16 Category A NCBTMB CEU's (check with individual sponsors for precise number). These workshops are approved for Elective CE credits for Certified Rolfers, and for Advanced Myofascial Certification credits. Other types of CEU's may also be available--check with individual sponsors.
