Course Description: SMRT: Shoulder, Axilla, Ribcage, & Upper Back live class or video course will help you to work the entire shoulder girdle. 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.

“Very hands-on. Very well done! Can’t wait to integrate in my massage practice. Dawn and Mary were wonderful. I would definitely attend another class!”
“Anatomy specificity and review were simply amazing. Lots of time for hands-on trades to apply technique. Thank you for inspiration to get back to anatomy basics and more!!”
“Dawn’s use of anatomy terms when describing movements. Great review of what I thought I knew but need to back into my daily use. Instructors and assistants, one on one time at the table was great. Helped me to pull it all together!”
“Lots of checking in from TAs and instructor providing correction and/or confirmation.”
“Teacher has a wealth of information and gives numerous examples of diagnoses in which SMRT helped, answered our questions fully and completely. She was my favorite! Loved her!”
