Trigger Point Therapy Workshops is approved by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) as a continuing education Approved Provider.
Workshops for 2013
Trigger Point Therapy Workshop Schedule for 2013 Coming Soon!
Workshop scheduling for 2013 has been delayed as we complete the Third Edition of the Workbook, but we hope to announce dates soon.
To be added to the mailing list and notified when dates are announced, please email Amber or call 502.468.1016
Special note to folks in pain
Phone and e-mail consultations are not currently available. To be notified of future events, please send your contact information.
Please note that we do not have the resources to refer you to a therapist in your area. Therapists can be found through several websites including the following:
NeuroMuscular Therapy Training
St. John NeuroMuscular Therapy Seminars
National Association Of Myofascial Trigger Point Therapists
International MYOPAIN Society
Orthopedic Massage Education and Research Institute
Also call local massage schools for referrals to skilled massage and neuromuscular therapists in your area. Most therapists have been trained in the “press and hold” method of trigger point therapy. That's okay; just communicate about the level of pressure you need. More pain is not necessarily better therapy! A quality therapist will always welcome your participation in your own healing.
