Ruth will expand on the MFR techniques and will present exercises to address the body’s dysfunction enabling better recovery. There will be loads of problem solving with various labs and lots of discussion. Each participant is asked to share one case study using Equine Myofascial Release Techniques (this is not required if you are doing the two MFR classes back to back). Documentation including initial exam, sessions completed and outcome will be needed. Any visuals are welcome; please check with the office at least 3 weeks in advance if you require equipment which we may have on hand for your presentation. Ruth will direct class discussion over each case study. For this course your instructor Ruth Mitchell Golladay states that the course is very different from the Equine MFR I course. In the MFR I course where emphasize is placed on the use of the right brain for listening to the body and using intuition, in the MFR II course students will be using the left brain to investigate the possible causes of certain restrictions. Additionally the course will cover specific rehabilitation situations.
