The new course curriculum has been put together with the intention to help practitioners with basic assessment and treatment skills so they can quickly progress to an excellent level of competency. This will then link into more advanced Jones Institute Counterstrain courses to help therapists to reach a level of outstanding practice. It’s a three part series with each requiring a higher level of commitment:
CYP – Choose Your Path
In the modern era of corporate health and intense patient caseloads, therapists often pay the price with early career burnout. What if there was the choice of a better path to achieve significant outcomes and create a rewarding and sustainable career? This two hour lecture and practical demonstration is ideal for soon to / recently graduated practitioners who are looking for a pathway to a fulfilling and distinctive career.
Assessment & Treatment Intro
Described as a “taster plate” and a “roadmap” course for recently graduated therapists, this two day course fast tracks practitioners to a pathway of improved income through significant outcomes. Participants will learn systematic subjective and objective scan exams to quickly identify dysfunctions in the musculoskeletal, visceral and neurocranial systems. Follow clinical reasoning paradigms and patient demonstrations to determine where to start and how to work through conditions, layer by layer. The course includes an introduction to classic and fascial counterstrain with over two dozen of the most powerful techniques taught in the Graduate To Excellence course.
GTE – Graduate To Excellence
This 6 day course is split into two, 3 day modules spaced several months apart. It’s designed to quickly progress therapists from good to excellent practitioners. On the first module, days 1 & 2 cover a mechanico-adaptive approach to understand the inter-relationship the spine has with the pelvis and lower extremities. Therapist learn quick scan tests to detect dysfunction in the musculoskeletal system and 45 classic counterstrain treatment techniques for the foot and ankle, knee, pelvis, sacrum, coccyx, spine, thoracic cage and clavicle. Day 3 shifts to a myofascial chain model with additional quick scan tests to identify myofascial dysfunction and an additional 35 classic counterstrain treatment techniques to alter myofascial tone imbalances to create lasting change to local and remote pain.
On the second module, day 1 covers a viscero-fascial approach with quick scan tests to identify dysfunction in the body’s “central tendon” and how this influences the myofascial system. Therapists will learn 25 fascial counterstrain treatment techniques to alter visceral dysfunction and it’s associated musculoskeletal pain. Days 2 & 3 covers quick scan tests to identify dysfunction in the neurocranium, TMJ and dural fascia. With 40 classic counterstrain, dural and sutural manipulative techniques, therapists will leave the module with a powerful approach to treat craniosacral dysfunction creating headaches and pain elsewhere in the body as a result of the fascial and neurological connections.
