This workshop will give participants an introduction to the “Taylor Technique” style of myofascial assessment & treatment, and how to incorporate this work into their current practice.  Specifically, strain/counterstrain, using limbs as levers, pin & drag, skin rolling, pick up & roll are all shown in several areas of the body, focusing on palpation of superficial and deep layers of fascia, and differentiating between the two. 

Learning about the elements of fascia and how to dialogue on this topic with prospective and current clients, will help participants incorporate this work into their current massage practice, while managing client expectations.  Therapists will become proficient at using these techniques everywhere in the body, and the focused hands-on practice in palpation, is a skill that will be demonstrated throughout the seminar, in addition to body mechanics. 

This class is the platform for the other 9 topics in the level 1 series, and gives the healthcare practitioner a firm foundation in applying palpative skill effectively. DVDs are available for all ten topics in this myofascial certification series as well as ten level 2 DVDs now available at  Level 1 textbook is available in downloadable and hard copy formats!


By the end of this hands-on workshop, participants will be able to:
    • Think from a Myofascial perspective, how to talk to their patients about fascial work expectations of treatment outcomes, as well as incorporate the techniques into their current practice.
    • Gain an understanding of how all the Taylor Myofascial Techniques, when combined, can posturally realign the body to a more functional state where muscles are separate from each other and not adhered to fascia, thereby improving their function and efficiency of movement.
    • Incorporate the basic Taylor Myofascial Techinques into their current practice in several areas of the body.
    • Gain sensitivity in palpation of different fascial tissues of the body as well as becoming skilled at strain/counterstrain technique.
    • Hold the upper and lower extremities with confidence, while exerting fascial traction/strain on the limbs in order to release their fascial sleeves to improve blood vessel function, nerve conduction and promoting muscular tension release.
