The group of smiling faces in the photo is testament to the intense but great time these newly certified therapists all had this past weekend. They felt especially accomplished because they finally finished their upper body training and passed their written and practical exams with flying colors. When we handed out their hard earned certifications, they all said that they couldn’t wait to come back and advance to Level II training.
This class had the unusual experience of sitting in on an actual treatment session by Ann and Chris Frederick on a professional football player. They watched wide-eyed and listen acutely as Chris took a history, performed a gait analysis and other assessments then proceeded to manipulate, divide and balance the fascia between and around the iliacus and psoas. This was followed by Ann doing advanced techniques of Fascial Stretch Therapy using traction, with complex spiral, rotation and diagonal patterns to release and balance the neuromyofascia. For more details on this treatment with the athlete, see the previous post and accompanying video below.
We had students from all disciplines–chiropractic, personal training & strength coaching, Pilates and Yoga, massage, athletic training and physical therapy. All reported much better client & patient outcomes from their lower body training but came back for the upper body because obviously something was still missing (yeah, like half of the body!). And all also reported increased business as a result from their new skills and commented how their existing clientele took on this new service of Fascial Stretch Therapy with great enthusiasm and response.
If you want to join our family of practitioners who have personally and professionally been rewarded beyond their expectations, then go to the Stretch To Win Institute for more information and the calendar of workshops that are coming up.
