24 Hour CE Course
Do you have the Positional Release Techniques textbook? See your enrollment options above for "I already own the text".
This advanced course explores the core concepts of positional release techniques for muscle and joint problems. The textbook, by Leon Chaitow, ND, DO, communicates the ideas, theories and history of many different approaches and includes online videos that shows how the author applies his techniques. This course does not teach hands-on skills. Please seek additional experience, with a mentor, to add hands-on skills.
VERY INTERESTING COURSE.I WILL USE IT IN MY PRACTICE AND ALSO AS A REFERRAL GUIDE.
The book is detailed and an excellent reference - the illustrations and positioning notes are useful, exacting and understandable. Although the material is an advanced read, it makes sense!
Bob Garza, M.Ed., RMT
Thanks this was great!

I found this course to be very informative and useful in my career. I work alongside of a chiropractor, and a lot of the positional release techniques are very useful in my practice.
Claire Balint, LMT, NCTMB
I loved this course! I had a very difficult personal time and the staff were wonderful in extending my class time for submission which I greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!!

This course provides information that allows a massage therapist tools which a physical therapist would typically use. Great knowledge when working in the medical practice.
Jakki Wienecke, CMT, BFA - Bel Air, MD
This course was terrific. It is very in-depth and has lots of good info. It's written in a good way, but a new therapist might get lost in the terminology.

This course was very interesting. It had my attention. My schedule is full so I had to make time to study but it was easy to pick my right back up and continue the course. I am looking forward to my next course.
Jenny Raety, LMT
There was a lot of information to take in with this course. It was all very helpful and great information though. I would recommend this course for sure. It is a lot of work but totally worth it!

"A crowding of the tissues to induce slackness in the affected tissues is a usual final aspect of the 'fine-tuning' once initial point reduction has been achieved. Additional ease can often be achieved by asking the patient to fully inhale or exhale to evaluate which phase of the breathing cycle reduces point (or which reduces increased tone the most).
Eye movements can also be used in this way - always allowing the patient's report of pain levels and/or your palpation of a sense of ease in the tissues, to guide you towards the 'comfort zone'.
