This two day workshop will include both myofascial and low-force joint mobilising techniques for the legs. The first part of the class will present a summary of research findings that clarify what happens at a molecular level during MFR. This is much more than just an interesting look at aspects of biology but instead it helps us understand the best way to deliver the techniques for maximum effect. Then a number of MFR approaches for
the thigh and lower leg will be shown along with joint mobilising techniques for the knee, fibula, tala-crural joint and the cuboid. Joint mobilisations that are embedded in a supportive myofascial matrix are more effective and long lasting than those done in isolation.
