    Hi Anthony
    After reading your article I was wondering what you thought about David Berceli’s Trauma Release Therapy? Do you think that’s safe?

  2. Hi Antony
    I am coming to Australia (from Canada) between December 26, 2017 – January 31, 2018.
    I am a pelvic floor physiotherapist looking to meet with you and hopefully have the good fortune of taking one of your courses on exercise prescription for pelvic floor physiotherapists. I regretfully missed the most recent course you offered here in Toronto.
    Any information you can provide me with regarding available courses being offered between those date by yourself or perhaps even Lori Fornier would be greatly appreciated.
    Eagerly awaiting your reply
    Thank you
    Regards
    Christina Dzieduszycki

  3. Hi Antony
    I am a physiotherapist specialising in Women’s Health in Newcastle Australia. I heard you speak at the ASA conference last year and loved your talk re athletes and the pelvic floor. I am currently completing my masters in Women’s Health at Curtin. I’d be very interested in your course about the female athlete and would definitely to keen to host a course up here in Newy.

    Loved your piece on releasing the Illio/psoas! I am a Licensed Massage Therapist in Seattle, WA, USA. I call myself a pain free therapist, because I don’t believe soft tissue manipulation should be painful.

    I was blessed to go to a private school where I was taught how to use palpation to find abdominal organs. If and when I decide to do psoas or illio work, I ask MANY QUESTIONS, including about their ovulation cycle if female, their appendix history, if any, and even their bathroom habits. I explain how abdominal work is “sacred body work” and you have to be very cautious. If they have ANY PAST ISSUES IN THE ABDOMEN I RECOMMEND THEY SEE A DOCTOR FIRST.

    It is so refreshing to hear an article stressing pain free cautious massage! Too many in my field suffer god complexes and go in without any good assasment!

    On my table I try to educate my clients and use a scale: 1-10 (5 = perfect pressure/no pain, 6 = good pain that you can completely relax into , but 7 is a no-no. 7 is if you flinch, your toes curl a bit, it refers pressure, pain or any other sensation locally or to a different area or they’re ticklish. I explain that these are all “defense mechanisms of the muscle and nervous system and we want to respect the space and make an environment the muscles can release into.”
    This scale has helped me to help many clients who have been hurt by deeper pressure in the past, gives them a safe place to relax and find treatment, educates them for someone else’s table and also helps get past natural defensive tension on may feel working with a LMT for the first few times also.

    Again, thank you for sharing your friends past experience. Do hope she recovered back to 100%!

    1. Hi renee. Thanks for your comment and concern. She is doing fine thanks.

      Great to hear what you are doing.

      With pain in general, I like what you are doing…I’d just add that some patients/clients like it a bit painful. When there isn’t internal organs involved, it’s not such a big deal.

      I like the work of Diane Jacobs. She has a book called dermo neuro modulating. Worth it (no commission for the referral). Otherwise find her on Facebook!

      Cheers!
