Instructor: Shawn Burger, PT, DPT, CSCS
Early Bird Price: $349 (Until 11/3/2017)
Prior to the live course, attendees will participate in a 2-hour online course reviewing the research and fundamentals of IASTM technique from the Level I course through a narrated video. The course includes watching 1 video, taking a short quiz, and completing a worksheet on a case study that will be reviewed in the live course. Attendees must obtain a 75% or higher score on the quiz in order to pass the online portion of the course.
This 8-hour course builds on the principles covered in the introductory IASTM course. Using a case-study lab-focused teaching format, advanced treatment strokes are introduced and problem solving skills are emphasized. This course includes the utilization of motion with IASTM and multi regional treatment concepts. At the end of the course, attendees will take an exam for a certification in Level II: Advanced IASTM.
Attendance of an introductory course, at least 8 hours in length, is mandatory before attending this course.
