Carrie Taylor – Fascial Fundementals & How to give a Full Body Myofascial Treatment
Masks must be worn at all times while in the building
Taylor Fascial Fundamentals: Level 1
This workshop will give participants and introduction to the “Taylor Technique” style of myofascial assessment & treatment, and how to incorporate this work into their current practice.
Specifically, strain/counterstrain, using limbs as levers, pin & drag, skin rolling, pick up & roll are all shown in several areas of the body, focusing on palpation of superficial and deep layers of fascia, and differentiating between the two.
Learning about the elements of fascia and how to dialogue on this topic with prospective and current clients, will help participants incorporate this work into their current massage practice, while managing client expectations.
Therapists will become proficient at using these techniques everywhere in the body, and the focused hands-on practice in palpation, is a skill that will be demonstrated throughout the seminar, in addition to body mechanics.
This class is the platform for the other 9 topics in the level 1 series, and gives the healthcare practitioner a firm foundation in applying palpative skill effectively.
DVDs and downloads are available for all ten topics in this myofascial certification series, as well as ten level 2 DVDs and ten level 3 DVDs now available at www.taylortechniquesinc.com. Level 1 textbook is available in downloadable and hard copy formats on Amazon/Kindle!
How to Give a Full Body Myofascial Treatment: Level 1
This workshop combines many of the techniques learned in other Taylor myofascial workshops, to form a more generalized full body “protocol”.
A full sequence of treatment ideas is shown starting in prone, with discussion on what to do if you find areas of concern/complaint that need more specific techniques applied (yet still be able to fit everything into one session).
The supine portion of the session starts on the lower body, and ends at the head & neck, once again addressing possible areas where some clients might need more specific work, but keeping the therapist focused on achieving a full body result in the time allotted.
Times: Day 1: 10:00 am – 6:00 pm; Day 2: 10:00 am – 6:00 pm
