What is CORE Myofascial Therapy?

George has taught continuing education courses to over 5,000 massage therapists in the U.S., Canada, England, Scotland, Ireland, Sweden, Spain, Germany, Greece and Australia.
About the Workshop:
CORE Myofascial Therapy is a 48hr CE certification course authored by George P. Kousaleos, founder of the CORE Institute, in Tallahassee, FL. The 6-day program focuses on intermediate training in structural integration techniques that improve the structural alignment of the human body while advancing functional abilities, respiration, flexibility, and reducing chronic pain. CORE Myofascial Therapists are taught client-education strategies that support the goals of the work while increasing the client/patient’s neuro-somatic awareness.
The program is divided into two 3-day segments, with CORE Myo 1 (April 5-7) focusing on full-body techniques and treatment protocols, and with CORE Myo 2 (May 3-5) focusing on specific treatments for key regions of the body. This certification course is also taught in a weeklong program at the XPECORE Sports Bodywork Mentorship.
CERTIFICATION in CORE Myofascial Therapy requires the full 48 hours.*
