One of the most important 'first tools' in learning new techniques is the ability to apply them in your practice.

Before any level of 'technique learning' should take place, we first need to learn how to properly palpate tissue. In this information-packed course, I will show you how to palpate the tissue as we do in the Morales Method®.

We explore the concepts of Directional Resistance and Directional Ease. We will also expand on that concept and add in Passive Shortening and Passive Lengthening. Finally, we include the concepts of Active Shortening and Active Lengthening.

Although these concepts are nothing new, we have compiled them in a manner that is easy to understand and expand on. Years have gone into exploring these concepts so they are easily shared.

Enjoy the learning that comes from employing Morales Method® concepts!

Japanese, Thai, and Chinese subtitles are available with this course!
