About the Workshop:


CORE Myofascial Therapy 2 is a 24 hour course taught by the founder of the CORE Institute in Tallahassee, Florida, George Kousaleos. This workshop will enable you to help your clients improve their structural alignment, elevating function and performance. The focus on healthier fascia can also alleviate many chronic and painful conditions. With athletes and anyone active, this discipline has also reduced the risk of soft-tissue injuries.  These structural integration techniques will advance a variety of functional abilities, respiration, flexibility, and reduce chronic pain.  Core Myofascial Therapists are also taught client-education strategies that support the goals of the work while increasing the client/patient’s near-somatic awareness.

The clinical protocols include full-body application of myofascial spreading, arthrokinetic joint techniques, detailed cervical, cranial, and facial techniques, and strategies for stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system while improving neuro-somatic awareness.

This class is open to all licensed therapists who are interested.  CORE Myo I was taught in April, but  Myo 2 does not require that as prerequisite.

CORE Myo 2 (5/11-13) presents information on:

  • somatic psychology
  • client-education strategies
  • specific techniques for intrinsic layers of fascia and musculature
  • advanced clinical protocols

Clinical protocols include the “Back Specific”, a deeper treatment plan for the paraspinal, scapula, sacrum, and iliofemoral regions.

The “CORE Release” is presented to work with the floor of the pelvis, sacrotuberous ligament, and related ligaments of the lumbar, thoracic, and cervical spine.

Also included is the “Foot Specific”, a treatment protocol for the fascia and musculature of the foot and ankle.

The final day of CORE Myo 2 focuses on the integration of the CORE techniques in 30, 60, & 90-minute session strategies.  CORE myofascial therapists typically charge 25% to 50% more than for relaxation massage.  Many offer 90-minute full-body sessions that also work with region-specific issues.
