Learn bodywork that really works!

Traditional wisdom informed

by modern science…

According to several studies and our own experience, the vast majority of pain cases are due to trigger points in muscles, yet very few practitioners are trained to be competent trigger point therapists. We have amazing success applying these principles, and we know how to train great therapists.
