Course Description: SMRT: Lower Extremities live class or video course will help you to work the thighs, knees, lower legs, ankles, and feet. You will learn to successfully work with:
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.

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 either live or through video.
You are on the page for SMRT: Lower Extremities. This course will teach you to work with all of the tissues in the thigh, knee, lower leg, ankle, and foot to balance the muscle tone, alleviate or reduce pain, increase ROM, and much more.

Benefits of DVD’s and Digital Downloads:
Live seminar (which is a combination of SMRT: thigh & knee and SMRT: lower leg & foot) is NCBTMB approved (this means it is approved in all states that accept NCBTMB approved courses, which is most states), as well as NY sponsored and AR approved, for 24 CE’s.
Video course is NCBTMB approved, as well as NY sponsored, for 10 CE’s. Check your state regulations to see how many CE’s you can receive for technique classes done by home study.

Evaluation Comments from Lower Extremities Courses in 2019:
Participants share what they liked best about the Lower Extremities Class:
“I like how effective SMRT seems to be and can be modified for anyone.”
“Our instructor, Kathy, and her TA, Alice, did an outstanding job on teaching with different styles so everyone could understand the material provided.”
“The instruction was concise and even though it was jam packed w/ info that take time to learn better and be more comfortable with, I feel like I have a complete picture. Nothing could have been left out.”
“Everything! Dawn is such a wealth of information and is extremely good at making it all understandable!”
“Attentiveness of the instructors. Dawn has to be the best teacher I have ever had and her technique, SMRT, is the best tool I have.”
“Patti is phenomenal. I loved the detailed anatomy but yet very simplistic approach to muscle releases.”
“The results! After I got out of my head and saw the results from the exchanges of working on each other were awesome, I was hooked!”
