Lecture Topic: Introduction into Myofascial Mobilizations
Myofascial Mobilizations (MyoMob) techniques focus on treatments for better range of motion. Lu Mueller-Kaul teaches some fast, easy and effective evaluation techniques and myofascial treatments that can be added to any massage routine. Body mechanics that emphasize weight transfer instead of muscle will make the therapists’ work much easier. This is a hands-on class! Students will need to bring: massage table per two students, one sheet (if ok sharing), face cradle with cover, and two pillows. Wear comfortable clothes, ideally a bra/swimsuit top the women can be seen in and stretchy pants or shorts.

Students will need to bring: a massage table per two students, one sheet (ok if sharing).
