- Quality over Quantity
Program Director’s Message
Since beginning my prophetic journey in Manual Therapy, there has always been an increase awareness of the valuable benefits of Clinical Massage & Bodywork Therapy for treating soft-tissue pain and injury conditions. With neromusculoskeletal disorders being so prevalent worldwide, there is no shortage of need for knowledgeable and skilled practitioners to serve the public with their gifts.
Critical components of any Manual Medicine system are functional assessment and clinical reasoning. Assessment is more than an abbreviated interview. Patient & Client expectations of Massage Practitioner's today demand more thorough evaluation skills, functional movement, and nutritional awareness! It is, in my view, key factors to moving Massage Therapy into the healthcare delivery system as an equal partner to traditional Western therapies in treating soft-tissue impingements and concerns, rather than as just an adjunctive modality. Proper application of assessment strategies decreases the practitioner's guesswork and helps the practitioner to make accurate, evidence-informed decisions about treatment or referral.
It is my object in this work to teach principles as I understand them, and not rules. I do not instruct the student to punch or pull a certain bone, nerve or muscle for a certain condition, but by knowledge of the normal and abnormal, I hope to give specific knowledge for all conditions. Sadly, 90% of practitioners will never have the knowledge and skill to be great at assessment or manual therapy. It’s not their fault, they just haven’t been taught how, when and which principle, assessment or technique to use to help their patients consistently, decrease pain and increase range of motion immediately. It doesn’t have to be this way, my team and I can show you exactly what it takes to become soft-tissue experts and how our students excel in their assessment and manual therapy knowledge and skills.
Outside of Bodywork, my mission is to “Transform Followers into Leaders, and Leaders into Agents of Change. I was created by God, and Sent to this Earth to Help the Follower Discover that Trapped Inside of them is a Great Leader. To Help them Reconnect to their True Abilities, True Potential, and have them become ALL that they were Born to Be!” I hope that the beloved readers of this message, not only notice the passion for my Work but my compassion for being preoccupied with the Works of others. Proverbs 27:6 says, “Faithful are the wounds of a friend, but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.” It’s a great day when God gives you someone who loves you enough to put you under a little pressure so you can be conformed into and reach your highest potential.
“Remember, Be Bold. Be Strong. Be of good Courage. And God Bless!”
