Course Description

I enjoy helping others learn and grow, and as I approach retirement, I want to share my knowledge with you and pay back to the profession that has given me so much. That’s why I’m offering a completely free online course in manual therapy principles, concepts, and processes, which is intended to go well beyond the basics and lay the foundations for you to develop expertise.

Whether you’re a final-year student eager to grasp the bigger picture or a seasoned practitioner seeking to develop your expertise, this course is for you.

Stop blindly applying techniques. This course dives deep, equipping you with the core skills of manual therapy:

  • Mastering treatment planning: Develop the clinical reasoning skills to choose the right techniques for each patient.
  • Error-checking like an expert: Identify and avoid common pitfalls to ensure safe and effective treatment.

Join a supportive community of learners and:

  • Demystify the “why” behind techniques: Move beyond rote memorization and gain a true understanding of manual therapy principles.
  • Sharpen your expertise, regardless of your level: Gain valuable insights and practical applications, whether you’re new to the field or a seasoned professional.
  • Enjoy flexible learning: Watch weekly video lessons at your own pace, participate in optional Zoom discussions, and get support from fellow therapists.
