Your client’s body is stuck in its usual spots – that’s no surprise. But is your work stuck in a rut, too? Learn new ways to resolve those all-too-familiar client complaints—and invigorate your routine—by approaching the body from unfamiliar angles. We’ll address the crucial, but often ignored, lateral musculature—from the QL to the pecs, from the rotator cuff to the scalenes. You’ll expand your technique toolbox and envision your client’s whole body anew.

This course challenges us to see the client's body in all its dimensions, and all its actual complexity, and offers ways of working – namely, by focusing on the lateral aspects of the musculature – that is often unfamiliar for both therapist and client alike. The result is that participants learn new techniques and new ways of tackling those common problems that don't seem to be responding to our typical work.
