The full schedule is available below, and here we are highlighting the Wednesday, October 21 "A Detailed Approach to General Neck Pain" with Allison Denney. The neck is home to a lot of moving parts and a host of frustrating dysfunctions, but perhaps the most frustrating of all is the general neck pain that accompanies the stressors of life. The most common complaint from clients is the neck pain that seems to have an elusive onset and no resolve. Join Allison Denney for this fun-filled course including muscles painted on the client’s body, Denney's favorite neck techniques, and approaches that work to alleviate clients’ pain.
Allison Denney has been a practicing massage therapist for 20 years. In addition to cultivating a flourishing private practice, she has established herself as an integral part of the massage community through her years as a teacher, her popular YouTube channel, and her launch of the Rebel Massage organic, professional-grade Deep Tissue Body Butters. Her passion for client care and fascination with anatomy continues to drive her to never stop growing. Learn more at www.rebelmassage.com.
