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?

Hi Ganapathy, I looks like I missed the Chicago workshop because I just checked Erik's website and find only Costa Rica and Texas? I really want to get into the next Chicago workshop? Do you have any info on when it will be?

Hello Ganapathy:

You'll receive a 10% discount by signing up for our technique e-newsletter. If you are already signed up, call Sandi @ 800.709.5054 and tell her I said it was OK to extend the discount.

Just started to work with a man in his 60'es who just came out of his cast after an ankle replacement and one today who 3 weeks ago had a double knee replacement.


Anyone ever work with a client who has had an ankle replacement?

Will be registering for your August 2011 Chicago workshop! Another therapist will be joining me and I'm trying to wrangle in two more. Looking forward to it!

Love this Ida Rolf quote from the early 70s: " "It's the fascia that crosses joints, not muscles. Fascial envelopes cross joints. Joints become the red flags; they tell you if and how something is wrong. You have to look for normal relationships, not only of joints, but within all the mesodermal tissue - fascia and bone both come from mesoderm; fascia is less dense. This will give you a more inclusive picture of what goes on in a body than if you look only at the muscles."

Click this link and go to the paragraph titled "Depth" to read a 'touching' story Tom Myers writes about Dr Rolf:

Had many questions regarding the upcoming Tucson workshop. It was orginally advertised as a 3-day 24 CE course but has been changed to 25 CEs to accommodate the Arizona State licensing requirements. We'll also be offering our 6-CE home-study Ethics course for those needing to comply with the NCBTMB regulations.

Tucson and Austin are the final 2 Blue Collar Tour workshops for 2010 ( Hope to see many of you at the 7th Annual Interdisciplinary Congress on Low Back and Pelvic Pain in LA Nov the 2-day post-convention seminars with Leon Chaitow, Paul Check and MANY more legendary presenters....gonna be a head-scratchin' experience.
