About

This 6-hour Continuing Education class is open to all licensed practitioners of Manual/Massage Therapy.
Manual treatment of nerves is profoundly under-taught in massage and physical therapy schools. Given a compelling body of evidence suggesting that irritated nerves contribute to pain and movement limitation, nerve palpation has become an essential skill for any treatment-oriented bodyworker.

In practice, we constantly encounter nerve-related conditions, such as:

• Neural Tension & Entrapment
• Chronic Spinal Pain
• Fibrocontractile Disorders
• Surgical Adhesions & Hardware
• Cervicogenic Headache
In this class, you will learn to “think like a nerve”, and enliven your existing techniques with a neurofascial paradigm.
INFO AND SKILLS COVERED

• Learn the anatomy, mechanics, and physiologic behavior of nerve tissue.
• Perform basic assessment of neural tension.
• Locate several major nerves (both deep and superficial) in relation to fascial planes.
• Treat entrapped and inflamed nerves using both direct and indirect fascial techniques.


WHAT TO BRING

• Writing materials
• Set of sheets and emollient
• Wear loose clothing
If we need extra tables, you may be eligible for a 10% discount. If you have a massage table and are willing to bring it, please contact MikeHammSeminars@gmail.com.
