Synergy Institute & Pete Whitridge Present

Myofascial Components - 2019 CE Schedule 

What will you learn in a Myofascial Components workshop?


Myofascial Components is a multi-disciplinary approach to chronic pain using orthopedic assessments, passive and active fascial stretching, muscle energy techniques, hydrotherapies, and cross fiber friction to help identify and eliminate pain and dysfunction. Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create Myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures that do not show up in many of the standard tests (x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.) 


Want to have fun, learn an amazing therapy tool that will change your Massage practice, all while getting your CEU’s? Join Pete Whitridge at Synergy Institute to explore deep tissue structures using Myofascial Components. See 2019 class dates and descriptions below.

About the Instructor

Pete Whitridge, BA, LMT

Myofascial Components of Head, Neck & Shoulder

Want to have fun while getting your CEU’s? Spend two days with Pete Whitridge exploring deep tissue structures of the upper body that are at the root of most client pain.


You will:

• Refine your touching skills and gain new confidence

• Deepen your knowledge of anatomy and fascial structures

• Teach your clients to work with you during therapy

• Eliminate chronic pain by working below the client’s pain threshold

• Slow down, focus your attention, be more effective with less effort


This workshop explores the Responsibility Center, focusing on the scapulae, shoulder girdle, brachial plexus, cervical ligaments and mandible. This is a multi-disciplinary approach to chronic pain. We will use orthopedic assessments, passive and active fascial stretching, hydrotherapies, as well as myofascial and muscle energy techniques to help identify and eliminate pain and dysfunction. You will have the opportunity to dialogue about your own specific client needs and learn self-care strategies to help clients maintain pain free movement. We will review current findings from the Fascia Research Congress while exploring the unique nature of the connective tissues. This class is designed to help you pinpoint problem areas quickly, devise strategies to eliminate pain, and work collaboratively with your client. You will receive lots of bodywork, learn new ways to handle clients with chronic pain, and reconnect with fellow massage therapists. You will leave this class with new skills and confidence in helping your clients be pain free!
