Thank you Therese. The same to you and yours.

Therese what scientific proof do you refer to for CST? If it is so why do evidence based therapists attack it with science? I just saw some recent studies attacking CST. Evidence based Therapists recently jumped on an article concerning a baby's death by a "supposed" CST practitioner. Do you know anything of it?

Best wishes.

Til Luca is brill, I am doing training with Art Riggs next saturday!

Glad to hear you are making progress with your client but it sounds like your knee could do with a session or two of this technique:) give your swaps partner a session then get him/her to do the same for you, its the fastest way to learn and fix your knee at same time.

I replied here re scar tissue technique = it makes breaking the bonds (no matter how old) of scar tissue alot easier and pain free:)

Hi Therese, yes we all had a great day here when William and Catherine were wed, but I think the rest of the world seams to have a even greater interest than we do.:)

Knee update, = I have slowley introduced routine as standard part of treatment due to cotinuined excellent feedback. Improved results for all hip and back pain clients but most of all cosmetically, in that female clients with constant anterior knee swelling (liquid) (1 treatment) and swelling (fibrosed, long standing) (3/4 treatments) is offering  permananent solutions/eradication and therefore phycological benifits of  confidence/clothing choices.

Who's DVDs are you referring too? I am doing a spinal mechanics course with Art Rggs v soon:)

Stecco's fascial manipulation does not make for light/easy reading (I have at times struggled greatly with its content)  as it details a 30 yr quest to unravel/explain  the fascia's sensory role in movement coordination. To begin to understand the theory of this book was an exciting unravelling of a masterpeice.
