EQUINE MYOFASCIAL RELEASE - LEVEL TWO
This course is designed for anyone who has participated in the EQ1100 Equine Myofascial release course. Instructor Ruth Mitchell-Golladay expands on the MFR techniques and presents exercises to address the body’s dysfunction enabling better recovery. There is a lot of problem solving through labs and plenty of class discussion.
This course is very different from the Equine MFR I course. In the MFR I course emphasis 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. Students bring case studies and practical experience to class to open up class discussion (not required for those take MFR 1 & MFR 2 back to back).
All of the following topics are included in this class:
Myofascial/Osseous and related structures review
The body’s response and adaptation to injury and dysfunction
Presentation and discussion of existing case studies
- Myofascial Release Techniques
Advanced MFR techniques
Advanced Myofascial Stretching
Additional Therapeutic Exercise Targeted for Specific Injury
Exercise for Strength Training
This course is perfect for:
Anyone who has completed EQ110 Equine Myofascial Release - Level One . Suitable to take back to back with EQ1100.
Completion of EQ1110 Equine Myofascial Release - Level One. Externships do not have to be completed from the level one course.
Students need to bring the following to class:
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.
