Course Description: 

Fascial tissue can become rigid, and inelastic over time, due to physical and emotional trauma, habit patterns, disease, and the desiccation of tissue that can accompany the aging process,. In short, fascial tissue will change from a lubricant to an adhesive. This binding up of fascial tissue causes a great deal of what the patient experiences as stress, tension, pain, and reduced range of motion.

 

In this seminar, we’ll focus on techniques and treatment protocols that immediately reduce chronic tension and improve range of motion with minimal residual soreness the next day. Discover a myofascial treatment approach that utilizes gentle pressure to increase client proprioception while allowing fascia to gently lengthen, stretch, soften, and become more flexible. Learn how myofascial release enables clinicians to efficiently locate and treat scar tissue and adhesions that cause multi-layered soft tissue restriction and adversely affect the dynamic function of the underlying muscles, tendons, fascia, and ligaments. Finally, explore how using less pressure can improve your mechanical advantage and empower you to treat fascia more deeply and effectively.

The purpose/goal of this activity is to learn techniques and treatment protocols that will immediately reduce chronic tension and improve range of motion. Attendees will also learn how myofascial release enables clinicians to efficiently locate and treat scar tissue and adhesions.

Objectives
:
1. Describe the origins of myofascial release and how it evolved to the present day to enhance soft tissue treatments.
2. Apply myofascial techniques that utilize less pressure to target areas of treatment at the deepest level.
3. Analyze more invasive fascial treatments and how to utilize direct and indirect treatments together.
4. Discuss the most recent research findings pertaining to fascia and fascial treatments.
5. Demonstrate strategies for preserving of practitioner strength and functionality.
