  Course Syllabus

Class Syllabus:
Integrative Neuromuscular Therapy

study-groups for the treatment of chronic pain, injury and stress

 

    Class Format:

    • 7 day training
      Class times; 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM or until completion of material.
    • Each class includes use of moist heat, Chinese Herbal liniments and therapy tools--a set of 6 pressure bars/t-bars--the pressure bars are a required purchase for the training.
    • The skilled use of the pressure bars/t-bars are taught, which are tools to help the therapist maximize therapy time and minimize trauma to the hands and arms.
    • Continually emphasized is the concept of economy of motion, proper body mechanics for efficiently working without compromising the health of the therapist; preventing "carpal tunnel syndrome" that is a common affliction
    • The evening before the first class, there is a lecture on the theory and history of Neuromuscular Therapy
    • This course is presented by Peggy, who has actual experience in treating clients with chronic pain, stress and injuries and has an active private practice.

    Each routine is presented in one day, with the format of a morning demonstration presented on a model, followed by a lunchbreak.  The afternoon consists "hands-on" practice as students pair up and take turns giving and receiving the routine that was demonstrated in the morning.  There are clearly illustrated class notes provided for ease of learning and maximum retention of material.  Peggy is available to show students again, the routines that were demonstrated in the morning. Students are expected to stay until completion, with the agreement that everyone both gives and receives the work.

    Requirements:

      A set of t-bars, developed by Dr. Peggy Daugherty ND, are a required purchase for taking this course.
