- The Walker Technique - Astonishingly effective, The Walker Technique is a versatile, robust, powerful soft and hard tissue (bone, cartilage) release and re-alignment system, with a broad selection of applications for all areas of the body. It was specifically developed for the harsh conditions of the Australian Outback; born out of two other well known Australian therapies; the Alexander and Bowen Techniques. Walker Technique applications can be used (singly or in combination) as a separate therapy, or within sessions already utilisng other types of therapy - extremely useful for any therapist seeking to obtain improved results. Offering 3 levels of attainment. Students must begin with Level 1.
- Muscle Energy Techniques - offer reliably effective applications where the client is directed by the therapist to actively use muscles from a controlled position in a specific direction against a distinct counterforce. Both PIR (Post Isometric Contraction) and RI (Reciprocal Inhibition) methods are taught enabling the therapist to adjust this modality for both acute and chronic clinical presentations.
- Strain/Counterstrain - (Positional Release) is the form of manual manipulative therapy that uses an indirect means of passively positioning a painful or restricted joint or muscle to relieve pain and mechanical dysfunction; countering the results of the initial strain on the body. This technique is one of the most gentle and powerful manual techniques currently employed in the field of rehabilitation.
