Clinical Massage for the Lower Back

Back pain is an enormous healthcare issue.  It is surprising that many therapists do not have a thorough understanding of the anatomy of the back and of the techniques which may have the most beneficial effects.  In this one-day workshop, you will learn amazing and thorough ways to help people with back pain.

Body Mobilization Techniques with Kevin Graef and Marc Frazier

Sunday, March 18

Body Mobilization Techniques (BMT’s) combine explorative body mobilization and massage to restore clients’ movement range and ease. These techniques provide valuable feedback for both client and therapist. The experience provides the client with information about their own movement possibilities, tension patterns, and restrictions, in the same manner and time as it is released. BMT’s allow the therapist to assess and address tissue quality simultaneously.
