Taylor Techniques: Myofascial Approaches to Headache & Neck Treatment - Ithaca

Treating a headache client successfully requires sensitivity in palpation, and knowledge of the structures that contribute to this nagging disorder.  Understanding the anatomy of both the anterior & posterior cervical region, biomechanics of the cervical spine, and head & shoulder position, is important to establishing a positive outcome for the patient.  This workshop delves into treatment techniques directed specifically at correcting faulty alignment in the cervical region, which has an "unwinding" effect on the head and neck musculature as well as the TMJ.  Specific modalities will be shown for the temporomandibular joint, as well as the cranium, in a sequence which will feel seamless and natural for the therapist to apply in practice.

Following completion of a Bachelor of Science degree at the University of British Columbia, Carrie Taylor attended the prestigious West Coast College of Massage Therapy in Vancouver to complete a 3500 hour Massage Therapy program.  She has been teaching at the Swedish Institute College of Health Sciences in NYC since January 2001, where her topics of expertise include; Myofascial Release, Anatomy & Physiology, Pathology, Neurology, Palpation, & Clinical Strategies. Carrie has been in the fitness & nutrition industry as a certified professional since 1990, a Registered Massage Therapist in Canada since 2000, and a licensed massage therapist in the U.S. since 2005. Carrie practices Myofascial Release, Osteopathic work, Core Stability based Personal Training & stretching, remedial exercise, & Nutrition Counseling.
