– No massage lotions/oils are needed, in fact, we ask that you not apply any lotions or oils to your torso, upper body, neck, or face during either day of the class, as myofascial release is a dry modality. Also, we ask that you bring along appropriate lab clothing each day, which would be a loose fitting T-shirt or tank top.

 

 

Foundations in Myofascial Release Seminar:
The Mouth and Jaw

Course Description: This seven (7) hour hands-on workshop follows along the science-based narrative of all Foundations in Myofascial Release Seminars, looking at how a myofascial release style of engagement can influence pain and dysfunction within the jaw, mouth, and facial regions. A full presentation will be made of the science and evidence to support this work, followed by demonstrations and hands-on lab practice covering major areas of concern. Attention will be paid to the entire jaw region, intra-oral cavity for jaw, tongue, and related dysfunction, as well as the more general aspects of the face that relate to course content. The intervention is termed myofascial release as that description best represents the style of engagement taught, with little expectation that we are capable of singularly and selectively target one tissue (fascia) to the exclusion of all other tissues. This concept is well represented in the introductory portion of the workshop.

Learning Outcome

After completion of this workshop the therapist will show the ability to understand and use myofascial release style treatment for the remediation of pain and dysfunctions in the region of the jaw and mouth.

Learning Objectives

After successful completion of this workshop, the therapist will be able to:

Compare and contrast the traditional “fascial-based” explanatory model of change with neurologically-based models with respect to myofascial release and manual therapy.

  1. Understand the strengths and limitations of a postural/biomechanical evaluation and treatment-based approach.
  2. Understand and apply an effective patient-directed method of myofascial release evaluation.
  3. Describe and demonstrate the various treatment options in a myofascial release session, including cross handed, single handed, compression, gathering/lifting, and traction.
  4. Demonstrate treatment options and apply effective treatment for the remediation of jaw and TMJ-related issues.
  5. Demonstrate treatment options and apply effective treatment for the remediation of tongue and intra-oral soft tissue issues.
  6. Be able to teach appropriate follow-up home care for jaw and mouth related issues.

Participants will be observed and assessed during the hands-on lab portion of the class, as well as monitored for participation and understanding during the lecture/demonstration portion of the class to determine whether the stated objectives have been successfully met.

Foundations in Myofascial Release Seminar:
The Shoulder

Course Description: This seven (7) hour hands-on workshop follows along the science-based narrative of all Foundations in Myofascial Release Seminars, looking at how a myofascial release style of engagement can influence pain and function/dysfunction in the shoulder region, including the scapula. A full presentation will be made of the science and evidence to support this work, followed by demonstrations and hands-on lab practice covering major areas of concern. Attention will be paid to the entire shoulder region, scapula, and clavicular region, as well as the more general aspects of the shoulder that relate to course content. The intervention is termed myofascial release as that description best represents the style of engagement taught, with little expectation that we are capable of singularly and selectively target one tissue (fascia) to the exclusion of all other tissues. This concept is well represented in the introductory portion of the workshop.

Learning Outcome

After completion of this workshop the therapist will show the ability to understand and use myofascial release style treatment for the remediation of pain and dysfunctions in the general region of the shoulder.

Learning Objectives

After successful completion of this workshop, the therapist will be able to:

  1. Compare and contrast the traditional “fascial-based” explanatory model of change with neurologically-based models with respect to myofascial release and manual therapy.
  2. Understand the strengths and limitations of a postural/biomechanical evaluation and treatment-based approach.
  3. Understand and apply an effective patient-directed method of myofascial release evaluation.
  4. Describe and demonstrate the various treatment options in a myofascial release session, including cross handed, single handed, compression, gathering/lifting, and traction.
  5. Demonstrate treatment options and apply effective treatment for the remediation of shoulder and scapular-related issues.
  6. Be able to teach appropriate follow-up home care for shoulder related issues.

Participants will be observed and assessed during the hands-on lab portion of the class, as well as monitored for participation and understanding during the lecture/demonstration portion of the class to determine whether the stated objectives have been successfully met.
