Have you ever thought...
"I do good work, I provide my clients great pain relief but I have some clients with challenging issues and I don't know how to resolve them"
"I feel there's something that I'm missing when it comes to resolving neck in my clients but I don't know what it is"
"Maybe only other therapists can do advanced type of work"
I used to think the exact same way
It's difficult to know what techniques work.
It's also difficult to resolve really challenging issues just based on the techniques we learned in basic training
Have you noticed? Doing the same techniques over and over again just isn't resolving those challenging issues.
No matter how good you are, no matter how hard you work, you need to develop these top skills:
You must learn how to properly palpate the tissue
I can't stress this enough. If you're doing rote strokes and not listening to the tissue under your hands, more rote techniques won't work.
Sooner or later every practitioner comes to the same conclusion:
Expert palpation around the neck vertebrae is a REQUIRED SKILL
I know this because knowing my way around neck vertebrae has helped me help hundreds of clients find neck pain relief.
After 15 years in private practice, I can honestly say that knowing my way around the cervical vertebrae has helped me get results.
Every time I work on a client with neck issues I utilize the techniques shown here and I get results. These clients have been a keystone to the success of my private practice.
Over the years I've had the honor of helping thousands of people get neck pain relief.
The one thing I've seen over and over that can crush an otherwise strong practice is the lack of skillful palpation
It really gets me when I see a skillful practitioner fail to get their clients out of pain when all they needed were some specific techniques and spinal mechanics knowledge. This is exactly why I put together this online course, just for you, to help you help your clients.
ADVANCED NECK WORK introduces the manual therapist (Massage Therapist, Physical Therapist, Osteopath, Chiropractor, Athletic Trainer) to advanced techniques for the neck in order to help clients get out of neck pain using soft tissue manual therapy - FAST.
High quality videos and great closeups allow the viewer to see various techniques in detail.
PDF handout details the entire course in an easy to follow transcript
No other online course shares the spinal mechanics knowledge shown here and in an applicable way that will help you help your clients get out of neck pain.
HERE'S PROOF THAT ADVANCED NECK WORK WORKS!
"Used the knowledge from your online course. Made tons of progress gentler. Thanks!"
"A lot of massage therapists will use the same handful of moves for every client because that's all they know. This [course] not only presents techniques that are probably brand-new to most, but more importantly, provides a basis to devise a custom approach for every single client. If you're a bodyworker who likes to know exactly what you're doing and why, this purchase will pay off quickly."
"This [course] delivers complex information but I like how Marty breaks it down into clear concise segments (chapters). The explanatory diagrams and demonstrations helped affirm my understanding of spinal mechanics and I get to apply this into practice. I find these techniques very helpful for my clients with a "tweaked neck" get out of pain."
"...most of my clients also have chronic discomfort and pain issues.....since I have a tendency to focus on the problem area rather than seeing the whole picture, the Rolfing method and your method has helped me to open my holistic eyes again. Also, your video helped me a lot to approach more specific issues using holistic method. Thank you so much...looking forward to have new lectures."
Kay (massage therapist)
