About the Event
In a recent study, the likelihood of someone experiencing neck pain in a given year is about 23%. In other words, about 1 in 4 people will have a bout of neck pain this year, with the incidence rate being much higher in people who work in an office at a computer. These numbers translate to the massage table; neck pain will account for many of the visits to massage therapists this year.
The reality is, neck pain is complex. Releasing the suboccipitals can be wonderful in certain circumstances, disastrous in others. There is no routine that works for all the different iterations of possible neck issues. In PNMT, we don't teach routines, we focus in reasoning and problem solving. That takes time and expert guidance from the instructor. There is NO substitute for hands-on experience and the guidance of a mentor, especially in an area so small and complex as the neck.
