Duration: 3 days

This course is designed for those individuals who have already participated in the CN3040: Canine Myofascial Release Techniques Level 1 class. In Level II, MFR techniques will be expanded and additional exercises to address the body’s dysfunction will be presented. There will be loads of problem solving with various labs and many discussions. While the Level I course emphasizes the use of the right brain for listening to the body and using intuition, the Level II course participants will be using the left brain to investigate the possible causes of certain restrictions and learning clinical reasoning behind the use of the techniques. New MFR techniques will be presented. Additionally, the course will cover specific rehabilitation situations. Each participant is asked to share one case study using Canine Myofascial Release Techniques (not required if the Level I and Level II classes are taken back-to-back). Documentation including initial exam, completed sessions and the outcome will be needed. Any visuals are welcome; please check with the office at least 3 weeks in advance if you require additional A/V equipment. The instructor will direct class discussions for each case study presented. This class runs from 8:00am-5:00pm daily with 60 minutes for lunch and 2 hours of evening studies.
