Massage was never intended to be done apart from movement and now Richard Finn shows you how to do just that through the Swedish Movement system!

This seminar integrates the original Swedish Movement with modern Neurodynamic Movement techniques and then applies the material personally with a home care approach that blends these motions and integrates them with modern movement re-education and ideomotor techniques. The application of these principles leads to increased client relaxation, less work on your part, increased ROM, decreased pain, and immediate postural changes.

This is primarily a hands on course with 3 hours of lecture and 11 hours of demonstartion and hands on learning.

Skills learned:

  • Swedish Movement
  • Neurodynamic evaluation and treatment
  • Home movement sequences
