This is a foundational course that gives therapists the basic understanding and techniques to do highly effective work.  Dr. Simons came to believe that Trigger Point Therapy should be performed with little to no pain.  In this course you will practice muscle length testing, postural evaluation, and treating trigger points with very little effort.  This approach helps the client and saves your body.  It also works.
