The legs are often treated by bodyworkers for the least amount of time in a session. Yet they support the upper body and are under tremendous compressive force, whether moving or stationary. When the structures of the feet and legs are functioning properly, they are one of the fundamental anchors of our stability and support. When they're not, they are a major contributor to foot, knee, hip, and low back issues.

In this class, you will learn specific, potent, and effective Deep Tissue techniques to release the muscles and fascia of the hips, legs and feet. Some of the specific muscle groups you will work with include the deep calf flexors (tibialis posterior, flexor hallucis, flexor digitorum), the anterior compartment (tibialis anterior and extensor digitorum), the quadriceps group, the tensor fascia latae and IT tract, the gluteals, the deep lateral rotators, hamstrings, and adductors. These are simple, straightforward, muscle-specific techniques that can be immediately applied in practice. Body mechanics will also be a focus of the class, as well as proper use of hands, elbows, and forearms to save wear and tear on joints.

"So many new, practical techniques to try! All really great stuff." -Chrisann Rauschenbach

"This was the best adductor work I've ever had." -Crystal Johnson

"This was exactly what I was hoping for – super great, specific work." -Leah Grossman

Brian has been teaching continuing education internationally since 1990. He designs his classes and programs so that the students truly "get" the material and can immediately apply it in their practices, rather than just being exposed to it. With over 30 years of experience, Brian teaches with a rare blend of passion, anatomical precision, humor, common sense, and depth. He was awarded the AMTA’s Robert N. Calvert Award for Lifetime Achievement in 2009, and was inducted into the Massage Therapy Hall of Fame in 2014. Brian now owns and operates the Pacific Northwest School of Massage.
