This is a half-day practical workshop and online course ran by NLSSM Director, Susan Findlay!

Being able to access the shoulder in its entirety can be a challenge.

One of the areas I always had difficulty working with was the anterior portion of the scapula without causing a lot of discomfort to my client. 

Now when I work I get comments like these; ‘wow that is deep but it feels so good’, or ‘No one has ever been able to get to that spot before, it feels amazing’. 

This is a half day course. Susan is also running a Neck, Jaw and Chest workshop in the morning of the same day. Attend both for a reduced price of £299. Find out more here.

Effective, successful outcomes without brute force

I want my clients to look forward to coming to me, instead of it feeling like it is an exercise in bravery.  

The more relaxed my clients are the better results I have seen, gone are the days that pain is a measurement of success.

I want good, successful ones, and this course is about showing you how you can achieve this without brute force or any extra effort from you.

Assess and Treat

This course will show you classical assessment skills using a variety of movement tests.

We will concentrate on what I fervently believe should be our main focus; manual therapy, palpation, and soft tissue skills.

The focus will be on seamlessly integrating our advanced skills into our massage, rather than being the main event.

Learn about different pathologies

The course covers a variety of common pathologies and how to treat them effectively, such as Frozen Shoulder, Impingement and Rotator Cuff Tears

I offer creative suggestions that will bring a fresh approach to each treatment. Apply your techniques with ease and confidence, and make a real difference to your clients.
