Peripheral nerves are embedded in a myofascial, joint and bony matrix that intimately affects their function. Nerve symptoms can range from tingling, numbness and weakness to aching, pulling and pressure. It is common for nerve problems to coexist with myofascial tension and pain.
This home study program is centered on Doug Alexander's superb Nerve Mobilization DVD which covers the upper extremities. The anatomy of each of the median, ulnar and radial nerves is explored. Upper limb movement patterns, which preferentially place tension on each individual nerve are also taught. You'll learn nerve tension tests enabling you to determine which region of the nerve is most sensitive. Discover a variety of therapeutic techniques designed to free restrictions along the nerve path and normalize tissue function from the neck to the hand.
The manual accompanying the course goes into detail on every aspect of the DVD. You will learn a valuable way of thinking about the body and client symptoms to enrich your practice and help your clients. This course will help any clinically-focused massage professional and is the perfect complement for anyone who administers cranio-sacral therapy.
