I have a client who, due to a twisting incident has pain in the perineum. Using Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques, I have resolved most issues EXCEPT the pain in perineum. Any ideas of what to do?

Hey all. I've been having a lot of back pain while sitting at my desk lately, so I'm doing some pelvic stabilization exercises and stretching my psoas a lot, but I think I need a good lower-ab strengthening exercise. I learned one years ago at a seminar, but it is very hard to do and awkward to perform. If anyone has a good one they've used and would recommend, please let me know. Unfortunately I can't do bodywork on myself so I have to try other stuff =P

I am looking for an article for my website about Erik Dalton's Myoskeletal Alignment Technique and why massage therapists choose to learn and practice it. If anyone who teaches for him is interested in writing about this please let me know. Just need a short article-not printed somewhere else. Thanks!

Hi Eric. I am a N.M.T therapist in New Zealand, I hope youve heard of us - the world rugby cup is currently being held here! Have you ever been here and would there be a possibility of you coming out to a massage conferance here if you were approached to do so? Sally

I think we can let you off the hook for next year, Erik, since you're going to be doing some good stuff that will just benefit us later =). Looking forward to completing the lower body and upper extremity stuff!

Thx for all the kind words folks. Dan is correct. I will not be teaching in 2012 to allow time to promote my upcoming Dynamic Body book, attend a couple research conferences, complete two home-study courses and watch the palm trees grow in my front yard in Costa Rica. Paul will be teaching next year and he's a very competent and intelligent guy.

Tina: Please visit and click on "Media" and view all my articles and newsletters. Feel free to use what you need for your site. If you want the images separately, I can do that for you too....thx.

Would love to have an article about Myoskeletal Alignment for my website. Please reply if you could provide one. Just 4-5 paragraph would be fine.

Thank you so much Ganapathy. I hope Paul will honor us Chicago therapists with a visit in 2012.

To Your Holistic Health!

Thanks, Dan. It's a bummer that I will miss taking a class with the famous Mr. Dalton, but I'm sure that I will get similar benefits from Paul. Thanks so much for the quick response.

Hi Z. Faith Darby, Erik's last mainland class is the one in Texas. He is moving to Costa Rica and has no plans for future mainland classes. But don't despair! Paul Kelly, his senior teaching assistant is going to continue teaching the courses and Paul is as awesome as Erik! There's a link above (in the RSS feeds) to Paul Kelly Myoskeletal Alignment Workshops. Myoskeletal Alignment Technique will truly add a lot to your bodywork repertoire! Take a course as soon as you can.
