We welcome back the renowned Dr. Ben Benjamin to teach a new course!
Early Bird Special: $298 through 11/13/21, then $398.
This intensive, hands-on workshop teaches you a comprehensive, elective stretching protocol for the upper and lower body that can be performed on your patients/clients in 50-60-minute sessions. Active Assisted Stretching (AAS) energizes the body, enhances the health of the tissues, increases flexibility, protects the body from injury, enhances the healing process, re-aligns the fascia and makes building strength more elective. AAS is especially good for athletes, the elderly, and the injured, and can also benefit the neurologically impaired. Add this full-body program to your practice as a stand-alone service, as a compliment to your patient/client’s treatment session, or split into upper or lower body sessions that can be performed in under a half hour.
The client actively participates in the stretching process, with a gentle, timed, targeted assist from the practitioner at the end of every stretch to increase range of motion along with many other benefits. During this workshop you will practice every stretch until you can perform them efficiently both individually and in sequence, with the least effort. You will also learn self-stretches to teach your patients/clients who need to focus on stretching specific structures. DAY ONE of this workshop teaches you stretches that work all of the Upper Body: neck, shoulder, forearm, wrist, hand and fingers. DAY TWO of the workshop teaches you stretches that work the Lower Body: low back, hip, thigh, knee, lower leg, foot and ankle.
