Webinar: Myofascial Techniques: Hands-On for the Hands

Til Luchau

Join Til Luchau for an engaging course in hands-on approaches for caring for our own hands, and our clients’ hands. Drawing from the Advanced Myofascial Techniques (AMT) series, this course combines key hand concepts, dynamic anatomical graphics, hands-on technique demonstrations, and research findings. Topics include using the hand/brain connection; myofascial, articular, and interstitial approaches; touch tools for pain and local inflammation; and techniques for improving hand mobility, sensitivity, and stability.

Read Til's accompanying Massage & Bodywork magazine article, “The Hand in the Brain” in the September/October 2020 issue

Before starting the course, we recommend you find a tennis ball and a hand to work on—your own, or a friend’s. Click the “Handout” link to download a course outline. Go to http://bit.ly/amt-hand-slides for a free note-organizer handout from Advanced-Trainings.com.
