What is CORE Myofascial Therapy?
About the Workshop:
CORE Myofascial Therapy is a course authored by George P. Kousaleos, founder of the CORE Institute, in Tallahassee, FL. The 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 I (April 5-7) focusing on full-body techniques and treatment protocols, and with CORE Myo II (May 3-5) focusing on specific treatments for key regions of the body. Core Myofascial Therapy I is offered as an individual workshop or with Core Myofascial Therapy II as the first segment of the full Core Myofascial Certification Program.
CERTIFICATION in CORE Myofascial Therapy requires the full 48 hours.*
