HM Practitioner Programme
October 13, 2018 - October 13, 2019£2700
The Hendrickson Method Practitioner Programme is a year long programme completed over 9 weekends by the end of which delegates will be a fully qualified Hendrickson Method therapist. The Hendrickson Method certification is accepted and recognised for practice by the LCSP register.
The Hendrickson Method is an advanced soft tissue mobilisation technique formed over years of experience in practice by San Francisco based therapist Tom Hendrickson. Sue Bennett has spent 10 years studying under Tom and is now the UK’s only certified teacher of the method. She is also training as a Pilates instructor, and how to link movement therapy to enable rehabilitation will be a feature of the course.
The first 4 weekends of the programme will involve developing our skills in Level 1 soft tissue mobilisation and investigating Musle Energy Techniques (METs). Alongside developing these new techniques, we will also examine ways to soften to our approach to patients, to allow us to empathise and access the root of the pain, working with the patient rather than attacking the injury. Each weekend we will constantly review and debate the anatomy and physiology of the area we are covering and also explore links to other areas of the body; and at the end of each weekend we will start to build the layers of skill and knowledge to develop a whole body approach to treatments.
Weekend 1: Lumber spine and Hips all level one soft tissue mob and Mets (13/14 October 2018)
Weekend 2: Thoracic and cervical spine (24/25 November 2018)
Weekend 3: Shoulder, hand and arm (26/27 Jan 2019)
Weekend 4: Foot ankle knee (02/03 March 2019)
The second half of the programme is where we begin to investigate assessment, challenging established protocol. We will acquire the skills to take soft tissue mobilisation and access injuries at a deep level within the body, down to the transition points where muscle becomes tendon, ligament becomes bone, exploring all the anatomy involved in order to solve the root of a patient’s injury and access and remove the cause of long-standing pain.
Weekend 5: Foot, ankle, and knee (06/07 April 2018)
Weekend 6: Lumber spine and Hips (11/12 May 2019)
Weekend 7: Thoracic spine and cervical spine (08/09 June 2019)
Weekend 8: Shoulder hand and arm (21/22 Sept 2019)
Weekend 9: These 3 days are all about review techniques, pulling together routines, treatment protocol, and assessment. Layering our knowledge to create treatment plans, creating a comprehensive whole body approach to treating someone with long term pain to pain to people with sports injuries. (11/12/13 October 2019)
There will be a short 10 question quiz and the end of each 2 day weekend.
