  • Working with strong emotion and trauma

What is Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation?
PNF stretching has been proven to improve active and passive range of motion. It can be used to supplement stretching and has been shown to help athletes improve their range of motion and make speedy gains in range of motion. Not only does PNF increase flexibility, but it can also improve muscular strength.

What is Myofascial Release?
helps loosen scar tissue and help restore normal function of the tissue while stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system. Myofascial release is applyed across the surface of the skin and commonly used as a relaxation technique.

This module is presented via lectures, group practice sessions, discussion and home practice sessions with your chosen client/s.

For your final assessment on the last day, you are required to invite one client and present your treatment plan that you have been working with over the duration of the course.

This course has helped many graduates gain the skills they need to run treatment sessions from their own home, or offer as home delivery.
