Introduction to Structural Myofascial Therapy
This engaging presentation is about more than just anatomy of the fascia and its relationship to the muscle tissue. You’ll learn some unique methods of fascial assessment including Postural Somatic Awareness, an important subjective evaluation tool that adds insights into your clients’ needs, allowing you to tune-in with how they present physically and providing you with better information for structuring your treatments. We’ll also explore myofascial palpation using a simple hands-on exercise to help you understand the feel of the myofascial membrane.
BetsyAnn Baron began her practice in 1991 and since 2001, has specialized in working with the myofascial system. In 2006, BetsyAnn’s cumulative experiences resulted in the development of Structural Myofascial Therapy (SMFT)™. She currently teaches courses in SMFT throughout Canada, the USA and Europe. Prior to becoming a therapist BetsyAnn enjoyed a 15-year career as soloist with Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montreal. This has given her a unique, first-hand experience with the body, its movements and its injuries.
