About the Event
Open to Massage Therapists and Fitness Professionals Course Description Stretching and Flexibility
This dynamic theoretical and hands-on course introduces in depth logical table assisted stretching and flexibility protocols to increase flexibility, body-awareness, and neuromuscular control. This course is approximately 20% theory and 80% hands on.
The use of Specific Protocols that provide immediate results that last!
During the theoretical introduction the neurophysiology of stretching and flexibility training is expanded and explained so that you understand the underpinning theoretical science - this level of understanding allows us to understand the how’s and why’s of stretching and flexibility as a modality.
Common postural syndromes, rest postures and fundamental mobility and stability will be assessed; this gives the therapist/and or trainer a blue print of flexibility and movement capabilities the client has.
This is key in order to treat, develop immediate and ongoing treatment protocols.
These protocols utilize neurological laws based on Muscle Energy Techniques (MET) to create immediate and long lasting results
Systematic Stretching and Flexibility protocols are used that utilize specific muscle energy techniques to restore flexibility, pliability, neuromuscular control and motion of the soft tissues.
Releasing muscles and surrounding fascia is one component of long lasting change. The soft connective tissues need to be re-trained and re-educated to optimally function in this new lengthened range of motion.
Discover how to devise treatments plans based on postural traits and by using simple repeatable movement analysis that requires zero equipment and takes under 60 seconds to perform.
