Structural Myofascial therapy (SMFT) is a deep, hands-on, therapeutic technique that couples with postural somatic awareness to treat the body's myofascial system. SMFT is a preferred treatment for athletes, dancers, musicians, heavy labourers, and those experiencing chronic problems.
Benefits of learning SMFT
Courses are aimed at reaching massage, physio, rehabilitation, and athletic therapists, osteopaths and other health care professionals. Through learning SMFT you will:
- Learn to work deeply and efficiently! - Sessions are dedicated to learning and mastering deep myofascial techniques while exploring Postural Somatic Awareness (PSA), a powerful subjective tool.
- Change how you understand the body! - Baron Bodyworks' SMFT courses allow participants to understand how stiffness within the body's myofascial system can create postural problems, injury, pain and discomfort!
- Empower yourself and your clients! - Rejuvenating myofascial tissue is just one of the goals and benefits of SMFT. Clients suffering from stress headaches, postural problems, insomnia or chronic pain can also benefit from this work!
