Continuing Education Courses for RMTs and Personal Trainers.

Well-referenced, research-based courses to enhance your clinical assessment skills, and therapeutic exercise application.

Let’s bridge the gap between current research and massage therapy tradition. I have extensive teaching experience in both the classroom and clinical settings. As the former Subject Matter Expert for the Practical Department at the most prestigious massage therapy college in North America, I have a thorough understanding of traditional orthopaedic clinical assessment and differential protocols. My courses promise to challenge axiomatic beliefs in the manual therapy and fitness industries while giving participants a research-based, yet simplified model for their manual therapy practice.

Bridging the Gap

This short 3.5 hour course is for anyone who wants to have a fun afternoon or evening where we can learn together, and explore some of the important questions facing our profession. Let’s hang out and talk shop!

Get some friends and colleagues together, and host me at your home, clinic, college, or anywhere. I will bring a projector (for a presentation), my extensive teaching experience and my super fun energy! This course is appropriate for anyone who practices manual therapy of any kind.

This course is about bridging the widening gap between traditional, and evidence based massage therapy, and how to integrate research into practice while keeping our traditions that work.

Topics Include challenges with the pathoanatomical and structural models (blaming symptoms on tissue damage), massage therapy myths and folklore, treating people with persistent pain, and integrating research into practice.

There will also be hands-on components distributed throughout where we explore the reliable, and not so reliable orthopedic special testing procedures, and clinical assessment technique
