This workshop is focused on myofascial treatment of superficial and deep scar tissue. Therapists will use the techniques learned in the “Basic Myofascial Techniques” course to create functional scar tissue, by separating adhesions between scars and surrounding connective tissues (fascia, muscle, periosteum, bone, etc.). Different treatment approaches are used to work successfully on superficial basic scarring, as opposed to deep, thickened and resistant scars. New versus old scar tissue treatment modalities are covered, as well as using heat to facilitate the process. Safe timing & contra-indications for working scars, as well as ideas for effective treatment progression are discussed thoroughly. Participants will have the opportunity to work on volunteers with both mild and severe scarring in order to gain confidence for future practice with patients.

Required Materials: 2 sheets (1 fitted, 1 top sheet), 1 towel, 1 pillowcase, pen and paper, sports bra and shorts. Also bring Atlas of Human Anatomy by Netter or an equivalent anatomy textbook or application. $30 fee payable to instructor for workshop DVD (optional).

Payments Accepted: Cash, Cheque, or Credit Card
