In my 13 years of practice I haven't enjoyed a modality more. It's intuitive and the most effective to date. I plan to take a third class ASAP. Dawn and all her TA's are a delight to work with. I have learned so much.
I have now taken two 3-day courses in the SMRT method. It reminds me of Strain-Counterstrain, which I had learned previously, but the movements are much smaller and there is an addition of very gentle "compression" into the restriction. SMRT results in a quicker release than SCS. I now incorporate it in my sessions, along with other modalities, often utilizing SMRT before techniques that challenge restrictions more directly.
I'm impressed with the method and with Dawn, whose knowledge of anatomy is quite thorough. I've also been impressed with the other instructors and TAs I've worked with. If you want to learn a gentle, effective method for quickly releasing restrictions, you won't be disappointed. I almost forgot to mention that it's easy on the therapist.
This was my second SMRT class. Both the class and instructors are excellent and I highly recommend any of these classes. They are different from most other massage classes. They are so great with anatomy and it really is nice to freshen up on it. Plus, the techniques are so effective. It’s great to incorporate a different technique into
My practice that works!
Thank you for the seminar in Madison. It was fun, informative, and definitely a technique which I can use immediately in my massage practice.
Absolutely loved this class! Dawn has so much knowledge...I can’t wait to take another class. Also the videos she offers are awesome as well!
What a great class! For the first time *EVER* in my 20 years as a massage therapist I was asked to bring an anatomy atlas to class. I'd never been asked that before, and was blown out of the water with it. I knew right then SMRT was going to be something really special.
The class was well presented, thorough, and the teaching assistants were awesome! I left the class with skills I could immediately put to use, in a way that is gently clients and therapists alike!
I look forward to taking more classes.
I just took the Head/Neck and Arms/Hands weekend classes. Definitely worth staying the whole weekend and taking both classes. I was looking for something different to add to my work and when I read the information on SMRT, I was very excited and cautiously optimistic that this was want I wanted. Well, I was right, this class did not disappoint!! It has been great to incorporate with my massages. I have already been seeing improvements with my clients with just the little bit I have included already. I am excited to continue watching the videos and practicing so that I can continue to improve my skills. It is also much easier on my body which is very nice so I can continue to practice for a long time. If you are having any kind of thoughts about taking one of these classes. Do it!!
Took head and neck and arm and hand in the same weekend and got all my required hours in on one weekend. I really like the concept and the teachers were so knowledgeable and took time to make sure we understood and performed the moves correctly. Awesome class!
Dawn is an amazing teacher and has a fantastic knowledge of anatomy. Instructions were very clear and Dawn and her TAs were wonderful about moving around the room when we were practicing and made sure we were comfortable doing the techniqes.
I also liked how effective the techniques were while being gentle. Plus I can incorporate the techniqes into my massages without needing to use them as a stand alone tecnique.
I highly recommend this class! I will be attending more in tbe future!
