If you ever thought...
"I do good work, I know how to work on the legs, but I'm not seeing the results I'm hoping for in my clients."
"I feel my body mechanics could be better"
"How can I do effective deep tissue work without over exerting myself?"
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 employ effective body mechanics
I can't stress this enough. If you're doing rote strokes and not listening to how your body behaves under those strokes, doing it over and over won't work.
Sooner or later every practitioner comes to the same conclusion:
There's gotta be ANOTHER WAY to do it
I know this because after 15 years in private practice, I have had to adapt and figure out different way of working the legs on many different clients.Every time I work on a client's legs, I have to figure out:
- What is going on in their tissue (this requires skillful palpation)
- How to work that tissue effectively and with best possible body mechanics
Over the years, I've had the honor of helping thousands of people and they in turn have helped me gained expert skills.
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 great practitioner fail to be effective when all they needed were some specific palpation skills and body mechanics knowledge. This is exactly why I put together this online course, just for you, to help you succeed!
