Course Description: SMRT: Ribcage video course (live course is taught with SMRT: shoulder, axilla, ribcage, & upper back) will help you to work the anterior, posterior, and lateral ribcage, as well as realigning the first ribs. 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: Ribcage. This video course will teach you to work with all of the tissues in the rib cage to balance the muscle tone, alleviate or reduce pain, increase ROM, and much more.
