ABOUT THE COURSE
This seminar features a strong experiential component in over 20 different body areas enabling practitioners to feel the effects of self-release techniques firsthand. This notably empowers practitioners to better care for their own bodies improving their clinical experience and extending their practice life.
acuProduct self-release techniques for specific clinical entities such as low back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff dysfunction, upper thoracic pain, hand pain and computer user pain syndromes will be taught.
Specific emphasis will also be placed on the front of the body – a highly neglected area – with review of self-release techniques for adductors, quads, iliopsoas, symphysis pubis, intestinal contractures, diaphragm, sternum, pectorals and SCM musculature.
A thorough understanding of the relevant physiological and anatomical issues will give participants the ability to explain how acuProducts may:
1) decrease pain,
2) create a CNS relaxation response,
3) improve joint mobility,
4) improve fibroblast proliferation aiding tissue remodeling,
5) release both patients and practitioners’ myofascial and joint constrictions aiding low back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff dysfunction, upper thoracic pain and hand pain,
6) improve computer user posture,
7) reduce the need for therapists’ manual effort during treatments,
8) enhance patient self-care programs.
