Introduction to SRT
3 or 4 Continuing Education Hours
This 3 or 4-hour class introducing you to the principles of SRT includes content taken directly from the SRT for the Shoulder, Arm, & Hand and Neck classes. Since many massage therapists have symptoms in these areas of their body, it is a great class to personally experience the relief of SRT from the in-class treatment. You will gain a gentle and effective tool you can use immediately in your practice.
In this hands-on class, you will learn to:
- Understand the activities which lead to symptoms including Taya’s view of the true function of the muscles involved.
- Recognize the symptoms that patients present.
- Assess the ROM and structure of each area.
- Palpate the involuntary muscle contracture to locate the SRT Tender Points.
- Discern the possible positions to decrease the pain of the SRT Tender Points.
- Feel the release of the involuntary muscle contraction and the increase in ROM in the area.
- Participate as the therapist and as a patient to enhance your learning experience.
- Release fascia quickly using Taya’s gentle tissue techniques.
- Use and integrate a new tool that will gently decrease pain and increase ROM.
- Understand the body from a new perspective and think “outside the box.”
