This highly practical course was organized between 6-7 Feb at the Oxford University. A focus was on muscle energy techniques (MET), soft tissue release (STR) and therapy of trigger points. I had an opportunity to consolidate my knowledge and skills and learn some new techniques that I will be now using. Stretching (energizing) muscles with patients’ active involvement is a really powerfull way of reducing pain and restoring a normal range of motion of affected joints. I am planning to continue speacialist training with John. He is an author of the Bodymaster method that is becoming increasingly popular in the world of osteopaths, physios and sport therapists.
