Nashville Myofascial Trigger Point Release for Musicians
August 27 - 29, 2011

Sharon Sauer is a Nationally Board Certified Myofascial Trigger Point Therapist who specializes in the elimination of pain and dysfunction. She will be coming to Nashville Aug 27-29, to share proven Myofascial Trigger Point techniques with members of the local pain therapy community as well as to treat local patients struggling with repetitive use injuries -- including musicians, massage therapists, chiropractors, and other body workers.

Sharon's deep interest in helping both communities because she implicitly understands their needs and the risks of repetitive. She has been treating patients for more than 20 years and has played the guitar most of her life.

During Sharon's visit, she will also be presenting a complimentary 3-hour introduction to Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy. This is a great opportunity to learn about the technique, pick up several useful treatment tips, see the value of this type of therapy in a clinical setting, and earn some CEUs -- all for FREE. 

To register for the workshop or to book a therapy session, please see the details provided below. 

More About The FREE Workshop ....

The workshop will demonstrate how repetitive over-use and under-use of muscles can lead to chronic pain and dysfunction in the head, neck, hands, arms , shoulders and other muscles of musicians. Therapeutic techniques as well as  self-care exercises will be demonstrated during this overview workshop -- so you'll leave equipped with knowledge and few tricks to address your patients' needs as well as your own repetitive use pain. 

Plus ...

  • You will learn how trigger points develop, and how they can refer pain to different areas of the body so that it becomes necessary to treat areas other than where the pain is felt. An example is hand and wrist pain which is often caused by trigger points in the scalene muscles along the side of the neck.

  • You'll earn 3 NCBTMB-approved Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for FREE (an $80 value)

  • The introductory workshop is the prerequisite for all other MYO Training courses. Attending this session will save you time and money if you decide to explore future courses in Myofascial Trigger Point therapy.  (We'll be returning in the coming months with training on Low Back, Shoulder, Forearm, and Head/Neck.)

The workshop is open to both health care professionals who treat musicians as well as musicians and the general public.  Please join us!
