Based on the work of Drs. Janet Travell and Raymond Nimmo, these techniques are appropriate for medical massage as well as sports massage applications. In this video- and text-based course, you will learn how to: alleviate pain with 100 highly effective neuromuscular techniques, assess injuries, evaluate and balance posture, identify 50 trigger points and recognize referral pain patterns, stretch muscle fibers, release joints in a plane of motion, apply focused friction.
For clearer understanding, video demonstrations include computerized visuals and clay models of individual muscles, and the course manual and quick reference handbooks review and reinforce the video material.
In the Torso video (77 minutes plus 17 page handbook), you will see 53 techniques demonstrated (covering 32 muscles, 29 trigger points).
In the Extremities video (55 minutes plus 22 page handbook), you will see 47 techniques demonstrated (covering 30 muscles, 22 trigger points).
