Functional Technique - An Introduction

New Courses are to be offered soon (Oct. 2015). The information below remains to simply to give an idea of courses I have previously offered.

This course is an Introduction to Functional Technique.

Functional technique, like Muscle Energy work, is another one of the subtle and effective Osteopathic approaches employed to release bind, or restricted movement, within the body framework. Experience with Muscle Energy work is a preferred prerequisite. If you are interested, but are unsure that you have the requisite experience, please call or email to speak with Howard.

A basic overview of muscle-spindle physiology will be provided, followed by a thorough, practical understanding, and application of principles, of Functional Technique.

A follow-up course, and half-day Study Sessions will be offered, later, to those who complete this course. This course earns RMTs 12 CE credits.

Howard briefly assesses each participant at course completion, to ensure their physiological equilibrium.
