Myofascial Release Workshops

Our Myofascial Release Courses are the basis for the Advanced Myofascial Release Diploma (a minimum of 16 days study). The workshops need to be taken in order, but can be taken at your own pace. Should you want to complete the Advanced Myofascial Release Diploma in future then all completed workshops will go towards this.

Myofascial Release techniques are an invaluable addition for bodywork therapists wishing to get to the bottom of chronic injuries. Emotional holding patterns are also accessed through these extremely effective techniques. Enrolling on this course will revolutionise your practice, and increase your client base. Enrol on this course and you will not look back! As one student said:

These invaluable techniques revolutionised my clinical work and I gained get better results faster and repeat custom increased enormously. I have not looked back since I enrolled on the Myofascial Release Diploma. I appreciate the clear and thorough way you taught the techniques.

Liz Waite.

The techniques:
These amazingly effective techniques equip you to deal with chronic injuries at their root. Learn to deal with the physical as well as emotional component of injury. For patients who feel they have tried everything myofascial release can bring them profound pain relief, increased mobility and therefore a greater sense of well-being. As a result of enrolling on this course your practice will build from word of mouth alone.

Our Myofascial Release Training gives you a thorough understanding of the importance of full body treatment and the integration of myofascial release techniques into your current practice. You will learn a multitude of techniques, both direct and indirect that cannot fail to enhance your current working practice. Bring fast, long lasting results to your patients on a physical, emotional and energetic level and therefore enjoy the rewards of a busier clinic.

About fascia.
Fascia is the most abundant tissue in the body. It is a continuous 3D web of connective tissue which infuses, supports and surrounds all organs and tissues within the body. Fascia is our shock absorber. Due to the connective nature of fascia, one restriction may lead to another, pulling the body out of alignment and creating compensatory patterns. As a result, this may cause postural disturbances, pain, repetitive strain type injuries, and other pathologies. Learn to effectively release fascial restrictions and the body’s holding patterns. Bring profound pain relief and increase mobility. As a result of gaining better clinical results, your practice will build. Leave with the skills to free up fascial restrictions, increase lymphatic and cardio-vascular flow, and enhance health and well-being in your patients.

The cyto-skeleton has a fascial component, so once you are familiar with these techniques you can have an impact at a cellular level. You can therefore enhance a patient’s health at a cellular level.

Additional Skills:
We train you the therapist to quiet your mind and hold the space to enable you to safely and effectively facilitate the release of the emotional component of injury. This missing component of bodywork has a profound impact on patient’s health and well-being. As Peter Levine said.

Until we understand that traumatic symptoms are physiological as well as psychological, we will be woefully inadequate in our attempts to heal them.

Myofascial Release has transformed the way I practice as a Chiropractor, when Emma introduced me to Myofascial Release, I had no idea of the impact this technique would have, not only on the results of my treatment but also on my Clinic. I love the way MFR works in synergy with adjustments, gently encouraging what was a stubborn imbalance to melt away under the lightest of touch, almost acting like a foundation to enable the effectiveness of adjustments to be intensified. Integrating facia release into a treatment has delivered enhanced, faster more efficient results, seeing patients less frequently, which in turn has resulted in a significant increase in the number of referrals, making for a very busy Clinic. Thank you Emma for opening my senses to the possibilities.

Since I completed the Myofascial Diploma at the School of Bodywork my work schedule has been so busy. I remember Emma warning us that this would happen; however I didn’t realise just how successful my business would become. My treatments have excelled forward with the results I’m achieving. I was working as a mobile therapist. But I have now opened up a clinic to save travelling time and allow me more time to cater for the demand. I would definitely recommend the Myofascial Release Diploma if you are looking for techniques to really boost your treatments with positive results and therefore expand your business.

I received my exam results and certificate for the Myofascial Release Diploma in the post today. I am very happy with the result and particularly impressed with the feedback. It was extremely fair criticism and very helpful. I have never had such observant feedback of my performance, and this confirms my confidence in your tutoring at the School of Bodywork and the APNT examining board.

Myofascial Release Diploma: Feeling into scar tissue, waiting for a release

An excellent course, I loved it. I am tired but not overloaded. A very good balance. Thank you.

“Having recently been introduced to the MFR techniques what I have quickly ascertained is that MFR really enables me to problem solve for clients. The very first client I had came with shoulder injuries / rotator cuff problems. Whilst massage has been very good, MFR has enabled me to have even better results. In cases completely removing the pain. I love the way MFR is so subtle and non invasive but the results are amazing. I am a beginner with these techniques, however, I already know they will be a fundamental part of how I treat. I already integrate them into my treatments and I cannot wait to finish my diploma so I can use it on its own!”
