Sessions: Soft Tissue Release Workshop
Feb 09, 2019 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM
Soft Tissue Release is a very effective technique tohelp people in pain. It involves client movement to enhance the effectiveness of the work. There are many variations to the type of movement that is used with Soft Tissue Release. We can work with muscles while stretching them, either actively or passively. We also can work with muscles while the client contracts the muscle, with either concentric or eccentric contraction. We will explore these variations and the rationale for using them. Once the principles are understood it is easy to apply this technique anywhere in the body. Tips and tricks for body mechanics and positioning will be shown to make it easy for the therapist. Extensive notes will be provided with this class. Please bring shorts and a sports bra for women.
