Great, EFFECTIVE work! Dawn's extensive knowledge and experience, along with her relaxed approach, make a great combination for learning. The SMRT techniques produce results, and learning the theory allows a practitioner to begin to apply concepts to other areas of the body.
I have begun incorporating SMRT into sessions with some of my long-time (15 yrs+) clients with great results and enthusiastic response. The gentle, yet deeply effective results from SMRT are exciting for me and my clients. I am eager to continue learning/practicing these techniques. Thank you, Dawn (and Nicole)! I appreciate your professionalism and important contributions to the massage/bodywork profession.
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!!
