SMRT: Lower Extremities live class or video course will help you to work the thighs, knees, lower legs, ankles, and feet.

You will learn to successfully work with:

  • Hypertonic IT bands
  • Femur head imbalances
  • Knee pain and inflammation
  • Chondromalacia Patella
  • Shin splints and muscle cramps
  • Lymphedema in the lower leg
  • Ankle immobilization
  • Overpronation or oversupination of the foot
  • Plantar Fasciitis, bunions, and tarsal tunnel syndrome
  • And more
SMRT is a positional release modality that interrupts pain signals in the body, painlessly resolves trigger points, has an incredibly calming effect on the nervous system, and is highly stimulating to the lymphatic system. By working with all tissues in any given area, SMRT easily and quickly allows the tissues to balance and the joints to realign effortlessly, re-establishing correct posture.

Benefits of SMRT include:

  • natural realignment of joints by directly releasing specific ligaments and joint structures
  • pain free resolution of trigger points
  • swift and painless removal of adhesions
  • disruption of the positive feedback loops of pain in the nervous system
  • considerable stimulation of the lymphatic system
All of this is done quickly, with almost no pain to the client, and in a way that is tremendously easy on your body. Because we have disrupted the pain loops, settled the parasympathetic nervous system, created almost no additional pain, and brought the area back to homeostasis, the results of an SMRT treatment last. Join us and learn to unlock all structures in the lower extremities.
Live seminar (which is a combination of SMRT: thigh & knee and SMRT: lower leg & foot) is NCBTMB approved (this means it is approved in all states that accept NCBTMB approved courses, which is most states), as well as NY sponsored and AR approved, for 24 CE’s.
