2018 Classes & Workshops in Myofascial Components

with Pete Whitridge LMT

Manual Therapies for Surgeries, Scars, & Burns

This class will offer a multi-disciplinary approach to working with scars, burns, and chronic pain. We will explore myofascial assessments, deep tissue techniques, passive and active stretching, muscle energy techniques, hydrotherapies, cross fiber friction, and self-care. We will review current findings from the Fascia Research Congress and investigate the unique nature of the connective tissues.

Deepen your therapy skills by exploring how manual therapies can affect traumatic/surgical scars and burns. 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!

In this Workshop 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
