10. The Muscles – covered both in the classroom and in the hands-on portion of the course.
11. The Techniques – 28 techniques developed for the live course. You will be able to release the muscular pain and tightness for the thighs, psoas, calves, hips, glutes, low back, and abdominals.

Prepare for the class
Wear thin, soft, flexible clothing for the classes. Materials like t-shirts, yoga, and exercise clothing are excellent as long as they are thin, soft and pliable. No face cradles or oils/ lotions/ creams are used. Bring your table unless instructed otherwise. Taylor reflex hammers are used for some of the techniques. That is the tomahawk style. (Other types are less effective.) They will be available at each workshop at a reasonable cost ($10) if you do not own one or forget to bring yours. The Trail Guide to the Body, the 4th or 5th edition, is our reference anatomy guide for this class. All of the class manuals have page numbers linked to this book. It has excellent illustrations that make it easy for the therapist to locate the muscles and their attachment sites. This book is not mandatory, however is strongly recommended. We suggest that you study before class time where muscles attach to the bones.
