Price: $149.00

(This manual therapy video product is on sale from $349. We are discounting all our products to enable more people to benefit from this information.)

This is a powerful bodywork package. If you’re a bodyworker wondering why we’re offering a class about rib dysfunction, it means you really need to take a class about rib dysfunction. Since every rib is connected in the back to thoracic vertebrae, we learn that by treating the ribs not only can we address breathing difficulties but we can also realign a lot of thoracic dysfunctions.

Included in this package:

1. Welcome to the Rib Dysfunction Manual Therapy Workshop

2. Overview and basics

3. Identifying thoracic facet dysfunction and how to begin mobilizing those points

4. First technique for mobilizing thoracic dysfunctions – torso circumduction with fulcrum point holds

5. Continuing to release thoracic rigidity with “rock into the crook of the arm” technique

6. Third technique for mobilizing thoracic dysfunction: “rocking into side sheering”

These techniques can be used together as a specialty session with your client or peppered throughout your routine. As we’ve said regarding another of our workshops, “The Essential 5”, it was a process deciding what videos we should produce first. Considering the effectiveness of these techniques in our daily practices and that we use them to treat an overwhelming majority of our clients’ core issues, we made no hesitation in developing The Rib Dysfunction Workshop.

This download was originally $599. Even at that price we were sure this video would pay for itself many times over. These are our “trade secrets” which will provide lasting results for your clients. Included in the purchase of this online bodywork seminar are 3 months of free online support. Email us your questions and we’ll address each and every one of them. (After the 3 months are up, we’re still most likely going to support you.)
