    INSTRUCTOR: Dawn Lewis

    Course Description: SMRT: Hips, Lower Back, & Abdomen live class or video course will help you to work the entire pelvic girdle. You will learn to successfully work with:

    • Sciatica and Piriformis Syndrome
    • Lordosis
    • Lumbar Scoliosis
    • Gluteus Medius/Minimus Syndrome
    • Sacroiliac joint misalignments and sacrococcygeal joint misalignments
    • Pelvic floor scarring and imbalances
    • Abdominal Inflammation
    • And much more

    SMRT is a positional release modality. The principles of SMRT are similar to Strain Counterstrain and PRT. When we use SMRT, we move the tissue or body part into a position of ease or comfort. In other words, if tissue is shortened, we shorten it further.  What we believe is happening when we do passively move tissue into its existing pattern is described in a theory called Proprioceptive Theory.

    Proprioceptive Theory states, in simple terms, that when tissue is in a dysfunctional pattern there is an imbalance in activity between the golgi tendon organs and the muscle spindle cells that leaves the muscle spindle cells more sensitive.  This sensitivity leads to increased restriction and sustained contraction.  SMRT positions decrease muscle spindle cell activity and restore length to shortened tissues.

    What is the benefit of SMRT for practitioners?

    • faster results, we hold SMRT positions for 20 to 45 seconds
    • easy on the therapist, positions should be done in a small, slow, controlled fashion.
    • little to no pain for the client
    • effective, lasting treatments

    Clients receiving SMRT treatments have reported the following:

    • that SMRT positions are incredibly relaxing giving them a feeling of euphoria
    • that they feel like the smallest movements are working deep within their body
    • reduction in pain while the position is being held
    • decreased inflammation, typically after one or two positions
    • increased movement when the session is over
    • results that last longer then other therapies they have experienced

    Where should you begin your SMRT courses?

    There are 5 courses in our basic series. They are SMRT: Head & Neck (with or without Cranial Sacral Therapy); SMRT: Arm & Hand; SMRT: Shoulder, Axilla, Ribcage, & Upper Back; SMRT: Hips, Lower Back, & Abdomen; and SMRT: Lower Extremities. You may begin your SMRT training with any of these classes.

    You are on the page for SMRT: Hips, Lower Back, & Abdomen. This course will teach you to work with all of the tissues in the hip girdle to balance the muscle tone, alleviate or reduce pain, increase ROM, and much more.

    More Benefits of Spontaneous Muscle Release Technique:

    • Gets you into deep tissues, quickly and painlessly, without “digging deep.”
    • Is extremely specific, giving you the ability to target even individual fibers within a muscle.
    • Addresses structures beyond muscles; including, ligaments, tendons, and fascia.
    • Is easy on your body.
    • Is safe and effective for many otherwise contraindicated clients and conditions.
    • Keeps your knowledge of anatomy fresh and working for you.
    • Allows you to work in areas inaccessible to palpation (pelvic floor, inter-cranial tissues, joint interiors).
    • Resets the neutral point between muscle spindle cells and golgi tendon organs.
    • Resolves trigger points painlessly.
    • Takes you to a new therapeutic level.
    • Enhances all other modalities.
