We’re really raising the bar with these (and other) CMTW courses. Our myofascial pain & dysfunction classes aren’t poke-and-pray. They’re about assessing, palpating and thinking critically to get truly amazing results with as few needles as possible.
We’re really excited about Level 2. Here is where we really dive deep into complex, tricky, advanced needling techniques, including scalenes, deep cervical flexors, suboccipitals, pectoralis minor, serratus anterior (and not just the motor point – actually palpating and *safely* treating trigger points). This course is a jam-packed marathon that will leave you walking away with a bundle of new skills, techniques and confidence!
This is where we also really dive deep into how you can assess, then apply higher order clinical reasoning to get results with as few needles as possible. This is great for many reasons. For one, most of your patients will appreciate fewer insertions. Secondly, by targeting the root cause, from a myofascial standpoint, you can help prevent the patient’s complaint from repeatedly coming back in many cases!
Level two builds on what you learned in level one, including trigger point needling, periosteal pecking, palpation and assessment. Here, we continue to hone those skills and bring them to a new level! And lots and lots of outside the box stuff, including autonomic components, neurovascular compression and more! In my opinion, this course contains the most technical needling techniques out of the three, so bring your A-game.
Here’s a list of muscles that we will cover.
