Workshop Details

Who should attend

Any Practitioner yearning to better understand the nervous systems impact of the myofascial systems and have complex concepts simplified for immediate clinical application. Practitioners who have studied myofascial pain, trigger points and perpetuating factors will quickly grasp the concepts and treatment techniques taught in this class.

This class is not recommended for students unfamiliar with myofascial pain, trigger points, or postural/ orthopedic evaluation concepts. Additionally, if you have hyper-mobility in the joints of the hands or wrists you may not be able to apply some of the techniques taught.

Pre-Requisite:

If you have not yet taken a Frequency Specific Microcurrent training, the Foundations 1 Course is offered in a bundle. FSM protocols, practicums and applications will be included throughout the workshop. Select the Workshop Bundle.

Investment

Workshop Bundle: $585.00 (Online FSM training & Live NMFT: Mover Stabilizer Model & Methods)

Select if you are a NEW FSM practitioner or a practitioner that would like a refresher on FSM. This includes the 16 hours Foundations 1: Frequency Specific Microcurrent: Clinical Applications for Acute & Persistent Neuropathic, Myofascial, and Emotional Pain course delivered online. All practitioners receive a Certificate of Completion upon successful completion of the course and passing all quizzes for Foundations 1 and a Certificate of Completion for the 16 hour live NMFT workshop.

Live NMFT Workshop: Mover Stabilizer Model & Method $485.00

April 6-7, 2024 Saturday and Sunday 9:00 AM-6:00 PM (Saturday Registration starts at 8:30 AM) For FSM trained practitioners wanting to incorporate novel NeuroMyoFascial Techniques to improve their outcomes and solve complex pain issues.

Live Special Presentation! Friday April 5, 2024 3 PM-7 PM $125.00

For trained FSM practitioner with 2 years experience: Join Mike Anders, MS OTR, for a comprehensive exploration of visuo-motor dysfunction. Unveil hidden assessment disparities, learn cutting-edge treatment techniques, and empower yourself to provide unparalleled relief for your clients’ persistent pain and trauma.

HUMANS ADAPT! Assessing today’s movement from yesterday’s (yesterYEAR’S) injuries enables you to identify NeuroMyoFascial adaptations and compensatory patterns.

Your clients spend their lives walking, driving, dancing, playing sports, AND… Humans MOVE!

It’s time to learn how to assess and treat their “Moving Violations”

In this 2-day, hands-on intensive workshop, you’ll learn how to figure out those funky, dysfunctional movement patterns and then…

Address the pain at its source, providing lasting myofascial pain relief.

When treating pain from myofascial trigger points & dysfunction is not enough: Learn to see Dynamic Myofascial Dysfunctions in everyone’s unique gait & behavior

  • Recognize associated mechanical & systemic ramifications of myofascial dysfunction
  • Learn why incorporating FSM from the beginning of treatment is essential for addressing the CNS (Central Nervous System) & PNS (Peripheral Nervous System) to lasting results in the NeuroMyoFascial system.

Effective therapy for hidden NeuroMyoFascial Dysfunctions: How to leverage the interactivity between the brain, peripheral nervous system, myofascial network & aberrant movement patterns

  • The BRILLIANT efficiency of the brain encourages INSTANT adaptive “solutions” that result in “functional” dysfunction
  • How injured muscles LEARN “the right wrong thing” that lead to ongoing dysfunctional adaptations so we can continue to function until pain STOPS US
  • Learn how to find the “story behind the story” … something you were never taught in school
  • Take a journey through the miraculous NeuroMyoFascial system: how and why it REALLY holds & releases pain patterns, postural compensations, old physical trauma and emotions

Restore functional movement by activating KEY Stabilizer Muscles and affecting Mover Muscles with dynamic manual therapy techniques & the Walking Release™ Method

  • GRAVITY is your friend: Learn to utilize this “assistant therapist” for immediate results
  • Stabilizers! The muscle function you likely never learned in school: Learn how to reactivate these key muscles and instantly restore bio-mechanical ease
  • Once you are STABLE … You can MOVE! Understand the function of Movers: Learn the techniques to release & re-educate these key MOVER muscles
  • Learn the fascinating relationship between agonist and antagonist muscles: You’ve seen this in your practice, but what does it really mean? You’ll get it, as soon as you see it!

Learning Objectives

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the workshop physicians and practitioners will be able to:

Apply powerful microcurrent protocols to support restoration of natural neuro- electrical flow for movement through resonance

This Hybrid Workshop includes Foundations 1: Frequency Specific Microcurrent: Clinical Applications for Acute & Persistent Neuropathic, Myofascial, and Emotional Pain this is part of the Bundle. FOR Current FSM Practitioners, if you have not taken an FSM course in the last 2 years, its HIGHLY recommended that you take advantage of the special pricing and enjoy the refresher.

She teaches nationally about FSM (Frequency Specific Microcurrent) and offers web based training opportunities through www.FrequenciesthatMEND.com In 2018 she was the lead instructor and trainer for a 3 1/2 month demonstration project for the DoD to evaluate the efficacy of incorporating microcurrent and bioenergetic devices in hospital outpatient care at Nellis AFB. In the last 5 years she has continued to teach both live and remote at Nellis, Eglin and Scott AFB supporting the Nellis Integrative Medicine Clinic research projects. She has also been an invited presenter for Richard Neimtzow, MD RAMP course, US NAC, Walter Reed AIM and PainCare Skills every year since 2020.

In Florida, Shannon is a Licensed Acupuncture Physician, Licensed Massage Therapist and Certified Myofascial Trigger Point Therapist. Shannon has a bachelor degree in Biology and graduated from Hendrix College in 1986. As a recognized national expert in treating myofascial pain and dysfunction, she expanded her clinical practice by completing her AFMCP (Applying Functional Medical in Clinical Practice) certification through the Institute for Functional Medicine. This certificate allows Shannon to broaden her health care modalities for the most complex patients. Additionally, Shannon has collaborated with her husband, an orthopedic spine surgeon, for over 20 years applying integrative medicine concepts in clinical practice and during pre and post-operative periods with enormous success. She is a contributing writer to two textbooks (Clinical Mastery in the Treatment of Myofascial Pain 2004, Clinical Application of Neuromuscular Techniques 2005) and has had several articles published on spinal disorders, myofascial pain and dysfunction, and clinical evaluation methods. Many of her cases are published in the 7th and 8th Annual Microcurrent Case Conference Proceedings.

Shannon has been teaching how to integrate microcurrent into clinical practice for nearly two decades. She served on multiple boards including the Academy for Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy, the National Association for Myofascial Trigger Point Therapist executive committee (Vice President & President) from 1999-2004, and the international editorial board for the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapy (2001-2012). Additionally, she has been presenting at national meetings since 1999 and offers regular CEU workshops on subjects including myofascial pain & dysfunction, spinal disorders and rehabilitation, neurological screening and evaluation, and the use of microcurrent and bio-energetic devices in clinical practice.Currently her FSM protocols, Functional NeuroMyoFascial Techniques & Mover Stabilizer Model & Methods™ and the Walking Release™ are being implemented by MDs, PTs, OTs, LMTs, LAcs, NPs & DCs.
