Practical Myofascial Release for Therapists

I recently ran two new therapist courses in the Practical Myofascial Release series. One was Rebounding & Unwinding and the other was Feet & Ankles. Both courses turned into a joyous reunion of students who were a group of therapists with widely varying backgrounds and experience and who came from different parts of the UK and even Germany.

What united us all was a love of myofascial release (MFR) and the benefits it has brought to both us and our clients. Listening to the different stories of how myofascial release has completely changed their approach to treating clients for each of my students was very humbling and also exciting. Many of them have taken the MFR training I have shared with them and adapted it in ways that I would never have thought of. As a result their practice has developed and grown in ways they had never imagined.

I also remember when I first discovered MFR and how much sense it made to me as the key to unlocking and addressing chronic pain for my clients. No matter how many clients I see or treatments I give I still never fail to be amazed at the positive difference MFR can make.

When I first started to provide MFR training 5 years ago it was at the request of a thai yoga massage school. Since then I have created a whole series of courses which I have called Practical Myofascial Release which does exactly what it says. I focus on providing therapists with practical techniques that I know help with chronic pain conditions because I use them every day in my own clinic.

About Practical Myofascial Release

The Practical Myofascial Release series has now grown from the original Diploma qualification to include everything from an Introductory Day to the latest specialist short courses I mentioned above. All of these are also CPD courses accredited with the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT).

Our MFR therapist community is growing all the time and we now have a fantastic supportive online group and a therapist directory that is well used for cross referrals.

If you are a therapist and would like to join us, my next Introductory Day and Diploma are running in Edinburgh starting this September.

Please get in touch if you want to ask me anything about my MFR training, or you can find out more here:
