Trigger Point Therapy: A Kinder, Gentler Approach
Instructor: Richard Finn, BA, LMT, CMTPT, MCSTT
Date: December 5-6, 2020
“Saving your Hands and Body while Relieving Pain”
This is a foundational course that gives therapists the basic understanding and techniques to do highly effective work. We will discuss the history and controversy surrounding this effective approach. Dr. Simons came to believe that Trigger Point Therapy should be performed with little to no pain. In this course, you will practice muscle length testing, postural evaluation, and treating trigger points with very little effort. We also integrate the original Swedish Movements making this course stand out amongst the other Trigger Point modalities. This approach helps the client and saves your body. It also works.
There is a minimum of six students for this class, any less may warrant a change in class date.
Supplies: Students, please bring a set of sheets and a large towel.
