Medical, fitness and massage professionals learn integrative fascia therapy programs
Long Island, NY, March 24, 2010 –(PR.com)– Bodywork Instructor Marjorie Brook of Brook Seminars brought her specialized seminars on Scar Tissue Release Therapy and Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) to a varied audience of healing professionals in Ireland, England and Scotland this fall and winter.
Both Scar Tissue Release Therapy and AIS are based on the principle that fascia (the soft tissue component of the body’s connective tissue system) should move freely without any restrictions for the body to maintain a healthy balance. AIS is a scientifically designed flexibility system involving targeted muscle stretches in short repetitions, while Scar Tissue Release Therapy reduces pain and visible scarring by releasing and realigning adhered tissue. Both techniques approach the multifaceted matrix of fascia three dimensionally to promote full range of motion and balance through the body.
Integrating these specialized healing stretches and bodywork is highly effective in treating pain from arthritis, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis and everyday injuries, with the ability to improve physical health for the general population. Many doctors, physical therapists, massage therapists, athletic and personal trainers and Pilates instructors are integrating these programs into their practice.
“Marjorie Brook’s course on treating scar tissue adds another valuable skill to the osteopathic tool-kit. The techniques are direct and make no apologies but they are very effective in removing long-standing obstacles to health and allowing better tissue health and mobility,” said Dr. Enda Butler of the British School of Osteopathy. “Marjorie is an enthusiastic and experienced teacher and with her you are guaranteed a lively, entertaining and enabling course.”
Marjorie’s upcoming U.K. seminars includes “Scar Tissue Release: A Three Dimensional Approach to the Body” and “How to Improve Your Posture with Active Isolated Stretching” in Carmarthenshire, Wales, June 12-13, 2010 and Galway, Ireland, on June 19-20, 2010. These workshops present comprehensive instruction on both AIS and Scar Tissue Release Therapy. To register and learn more about Brook Seminars, visit www.brookseminars.com.
