The advanced course covers all methods of spontaneous release by positioning. Theories and history of many different approaches are discussed and techniques are described in detail through illustrations and photographs. The associated online videos provide demonstrations of the techniques as well.

A wealth of info here! After 20+ years in massage, this course has provided me with several more areas of study to help build my expertise. Will be a future reference tool in my practice. Thank you!
Yalanda Patria, LMT
Very informative and technical course. I will definitely use in my practice and use book as a constant reference. I have never been disappointed with any course I have taken from Integrative Healthcare Studies. I have referred many colleagues.
Bob Garza, M.Ed., RMT
The book is detailed and an excellent reference - the illustrations and positioning notes are useful, exacting and understandable. Although the material is an advanced read, it makes sense!
Jakki Wienecke, CMT, BFA - Bel Air, MD
This course provides information that allows a massage therapist tools which a physical therapist would typically use. Great knowledge when working in the medical practice.
Laura Hess, NCTMB
This course was terrific. It is very in-depth and has lots of good info. It's written in a good way, but a new therapist might get lost in the terminology.
