Wow Dawn, Sounds like you did a great job with that Client with the sore sacrum. Thanks for posting.
Comment by Dawn Lewis on February 6, 2014 at 1:02pm

        Had a client yesterday whose sacrum was killing her.  She could hardly move.  She also could not take any pressure and did not really want her sacrum to be touched.  I worked through the sheet and blanket, and did Spontaneous Muscle Release Technique by itself.  When it prompted some myofascial unwinding, I went with that.  I followed the pain as it moved from place to place.  It started in her sacrum and then moved into her lower back, then into her lower hip, then to the anterior thigh, then into psoas, and finally back to the sacrum.  When she got up to get dressed, she says she could bend over and, well, put her underwear on.  Apparently that had been a real problem for a while.  Her pain was a 1 where it had been a 12.  Love the fact that SMRT can create such significant change so easily and quickly, and besides staying present with her body, I hardly had to do anything.  If you would like to learn to do this, come to Winter Park, FL the beginning of April.  Register at http://efullcircle.com/class-schedule/

        Stories about the SMRT Shoulder, Axilla, Ribcage, & Upper Back class:  in 2013, we had some wonderful things happen in this class.  I had a woman who had taken the course in 2012 sign up in Billings, MT in 2013.  When I asked her why she was taking the course again after such a short time, she told me "I messed up my shoulder, had all kinds of treatments, nothing is helping, I knew I could get it fixed in this class."  I was amused, and her shoulder did get fixed.  In that Billings course there was another woman in class who lacked confidence.  She did not think she was doing well, did not think she was understanding the information.  She registered and took the SMRT: Hips, Lower Back, & Abdomen course in Seattle a few months later.  She was supposed to be working on her partner's hips, but she saw that the woman's floating ribs were rotated and immobile.  Utilizing the training she received in Billings, she aligned and mobilized the floating ribs in 5 minutes.  5 minutes!!  She glowed with confidence.  It was a lovely sight.  This is the course we will be teaching in Minnesota the end of April - http://efullcircle.com/class-schedule/

        I am prepping to shoot another webinar for Tools For Touch!  This time it will be "Treating Carpal Tunnel Syndrome".  I have been preparing the course in my head for 2 weeks now.  Some of what you would learn if you were to sign up for the webinar:  how to instantly release opponens pollicis and opponens digiti minimi to soften the transverse carpal ligament, how to release the ligaments in the intercarpal joints to allow realignment of the carpal bones, how to quickly release the muscle attachments of the medial elbow to interrupt any median nerve impingement at the elbow, and more.

        Hope you will join us!  http://efullcircle.com/

        I just got another email from a woman whose father had surgery, sinus surgery in this case, and has been on a catheter, unable to urinate on his own, for a year.  People have had fantastic success with the self help video on our website on how to restore bladder function after surgery.  The work is so easy, they can do it on each other, but they prefer real therapists do the work.

        This means we need to teach it to more people.  I never realized how widespread this problem was.  We get emails from all over the world from people who are desperate for help.  The ones who try the SMRT work have great results, but some have no one who can do the work for them or their people do not feel they could do the work.

        This week alone I have gotten 3 emails on this issue.  I sent one to a student in NC, one to a student in AZ, and the other is the woman mentioned above, who is in WV.  I will have to do my best to coach her through email and hope she is willing to do the work on her father herself.

        This is only one of the amazing things that will be taught in the SMRT: Hips, Lower Back, & Abdomen course in Winter Park, FL on April 4-6, 2014.  http://efullcircle.com/class-schedule/

Do you need CE's right now?  All of our approved massage therapy continuing education videos are available for 60-day rental or digital download.  You can access videos worth 4 to 24 CE's immediately, take the test when you are ready, and receive your certificate within 2 days time.  Don't need CE's, but still interested in learning Spontaneous Muscle Release Technique, you can purchase both 60-day rentals and digital downloads with CE's attached.   Check out Full Circle's website at http://efullcircle.com/ for more information.
