Advanced Myofascial Release with Muscle Energy Techniques (Contract-Relax Stretches)
Time: 8:30am – 6:00pm
Instructor: World Massage Hall of Fame inductee, Wolfgang Luckmann
Developed by Osteopaths and East European physical therapists, this course embodies many of the major developments in cutting-edge bodywork techniques. The course allows you to move away from confrontational pain management techniques and neuromuscular trigger point techniques as well as the boredom of endless repetitive massages. We will focus on a comprehensive approach that is safe, cost-efficient, and effective. Instead of focusing on spot work and isolated muscle groups, we approach the client from a body-mind-spirit viewpoint

How to reduce recovery time with TWO easy sessions and make the healing gentle and lasting principle of this release therapy is based on the ARNDT- SCHULZ LAW of pharmacology, which states that: GENTLE STIMULATION ENHANCES THE PHYSIOLOGICAL PROCESS OF HEALING, BUT STRONG STIMULATION STOPS AND REVERSES THE PROCESS OF THE BODY HEALING ITSELF.
