Muscle Testing Courses

Many bodywork therapists wish they could have some pre-treatment assessments to help guide them to appropriate treatment with massage or exercises. These assessments can also be performed post-treatment to check effectiveness. Not only is this good for the practitioner, it gives confidence to the client who can clearly see the improvement.

Useful to any massage therapist, Pilates instructor, yoga practitioner, reflexologist, personal trainer or bodyworker who wish to tailor each session or treatment to suit each client. It also gives clear evidence of improvement.

Includes latissimus dorsi, psoas, piriformis, TFL, gluteus med, gluteus max and QL. These tests give assessment skills for massage treatments that can be included in a massage therapy session to see if there has been an improvement between pre and post massage. Subsequent sets can be taught in future workshops.
Our Muscle Testing courses are supplemented by our book, "Muscle Testing: A Concise Manual"  published by Handspring Publishing.
