Filmed at actual Rolf Institute®-associated* continuing education seminars, these best-selling videos show effective hands-on myofascial tools, assessments, and techniques that address common client complaints. Each course includes instructor demonstrations, explanations, student questions, technique variations (and the occasional blooper) that convey the immediacy of an actual class. This "recorded live" format imparts the essential elements of each technique in a way that pre-scripted, studio-produced videos may not. Since their original release, the Advanced Myofascial Techniques videos have become classic reference, teaching, and study resources, purchased and used by tens of thousands of hands-on practitioners around the world, in clinics, universities, private practices, sports centers, and spas offering physical therapy, sports rehabilitation, massage therapy, and more. The techniques and protocols are designed to be used on their own, or combined with myofascial release, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, structural integration and Rolfing®*, active release therapy (ART), shiatsu, acupuncture, neuromuscular therapy, fascial release, and more.
BONUS: Includes free download of the accompanying online Course Notebook PDF (usually $5.99) which illustrates each of the video's techniques with clear photographs, selected key points, cautions, and space for your annotations. Use the notebook together with the video to organize your notes and maximize your learning. Check your email for the download link to your free Course Notebook PDF after you order.
