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.
 Our Making Sense of Anatomy courses are supplemented by our book "Making Sense of Human Anatomy & Physiology - A Learner Friendly Approach" published by North Atlantic Books and Lotus Publishing.

Muscle Testing - A Concise Manual is a must for all bodyworkers and manual therapists

Muscle Testing for Modern Conditions

Modern society encourages a face pace lifestyle, one which subjects individuals to adapting to challenges on demand. With these multiple challenges come numerous problems that manifest both physically and psychologically. How does one learn to adapt to modern lifestyles whilst balancing the possibility of injury and ill-health? This practice based workshop explores how muscle testing is used to monitor injury, and provide invaluable assessment guidance on treatment choices. Through muscle testing the practitioner learns to co-ordinate treatment strategies by carefully designing appropriate interventions to manage and reduce the onset of injury. Earle Abrahamson and Jane Langston, authors of Muscle Testing; A concise manual, will lead participants through muscle testing as a monitor and treatment technique for modern day injuries. The workshop will focus on how the body responds to stressors, and how through muscle testing, significant information about body function and dynamics could be considered. The workshop is open to practitioners and students but is limited to a maximum of 20 participants. Participants should wear comfortable non-restrictive clothing, and bring a pen a pad for note-taking.
