Dr. Benjamin has founded the Muscular Therapy Institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1974 and has been in private practice for 55 years. He travels throughout the country teaching orthopedic manual therapy, ethics, and Active Assisted Stretching. He is the author of Are You Tense?, Exercise without Injury, Listen to your Pain and a co-author of the Ethics of Touch and Conversation Transformation. Over the last two decades, he has also created a series of DVD and streaming programs on the assessment and treatment of the low back, the neck, the knee, shoulder and various common injuries as well as a 3-volume series on advanced technique and a 7–part series on Active Assisted Stretching.
Comprehensive hands-on workshop includes assessment and friction therapy treatment. At each full-day training, you will learn two dozen assessment tests, as well as cross-fiber friction, and myofascial and deep tissue techniques to address pain and injury in some of the most commonly injured structures in the neck, shoulder, low back, and knee. You will also learn the anatomy of these structures as never before through physically locating and palpating each targeted muscle, tendon, and ligament with these techniques. This new workshop gives you a comprehensive view of working with these injuries from initial assessment to treatment.
This intensive, hands-on workshop teaches you a comprehensive, effective stretching protocol for the upper body. Active Assisted Stretching (AAS) energizes the body, enhances the health of the tissues, increases flexibility, protects the body from injury, enhances the healing process, re-aligns the fascia and makes building strength more effective. AAS is especially good for athletes, the elderly, and the injured, and can also benefit the neurologically impaired. During this workshop you will practice every stretch until you can perform them efficiently both individually and in sequence, with the least effort. You will also learn self-stretches to teach your clients who need to focus on stretching specific structures.
