Event Description

The vital role of the hip as a source of pain and its role in healthy movement is often overlooked. Issues of the hip may present local pain but can also greatly effect areas both above and below. For instance, restrictions in the hip demand that the low back compensate, leading to low back pain. Treatment of the low back (where the symptoms present) will be frustratingly unsuccessful. It is common to have hip pain where no visible pathology is discovered, precise soft tissue approaches can be amazingly effective. The focus of this seminar is on accurate assessment strategies and effective treatment techniques to help you treat the right structure for the right reason. We don’t just teach you how, we teach you why! $220 early bird up to two weeks before class date. $250 normal rate within two weeks of class date.

Neuromuscular Therapy

Neuromuscular therapy (NMT), sometimes called trigger point therapy, is a targeted, deep tissue massage technique. Concentrated pressure is applied to key points in order to relieve muscle spasms. It is often combined with other techniques as part of a deep tissue session.

While regular deep tissue massage is meant to alleviate general, chronic muscle tension, neuromuscular therapy is mean to address postural problems, nerve compression, ischemia and improper biomechanics. Referred pain, or dysfunction in one area causing issues in others, is often addressed with NMT. Neuromuscular therapy trainings will teach you how to identify common trigger points and referred pain as well as how to approach them without pain or bruising.
