Workshop Description

This workshop concentrates on the two most common causes of pain and tension in the lower back and pelvis - the piriformis (and other deep lateral rotators) and the sacro-iliac ligaments. IN this clinical massage workshop you will learn about:

The causes of sciatica
Repetitive stress issues with the I.T. band
The role of the sacro-iliac joint and ligaments in low back pain
Anatomy of the muscles and ligaments most relevant to these problems
Traditional treatments

The soft tissue manipulations you will learn and practice will be closely supervised with instructor guidance on the techniques and body mechanics:

Assessment for lower back, gluteals, and thigh
Myofascial release for lower back, gluteals, and thigh
Deep transverse friction for the sacro-iliac, ilio-lumbar ligaments and iliotibial band
Deep Massage and deep tissue techniques for gluteus maximus and hamstrings
Deep longitudinal stripping of hamstrings and lateral thigh
Piriformis and TFL pin and stretch
Active release techniques for the low back and piriformis
Trigger point deactivation for the TFL and quadriceps
For many therapists this will be the first time to really have a thorough set of powerful techniques to dramatically help people with these frequently encountered dysfunctions.

Add this important, essential and valuable new skill level to your work!
