Alumni discount – use code ESO25 or contact us to book by telephone on 01622 760816

This is part 2 of a 2 part course – each may be attended as a standalone course if preferred


Course overview

Each course will cover the effects of positional release on pain mechanisms and also when positional release is the most effective modality for treatment. Primary and secondary screening tests will be used to gain a baseline to measure treatment effects and to help identify where treatment should be directed.

This second course will cover thorax including ribs and spine, shoulder girdle, the cervical spine and cranium. There will be more than 100 techniques in each course, which will be easily implemented in clinical practice immediately after the course.

Delegate feedback from Part I (January 2020):

“Inspirational tutor!! Simon was very down to earth, explained it very well in an easy, logical way. Open to challenging questions and skepticism”

“Delivered material in a fresh and often entertaining way. Highly recommend”

“The course has left me with a very clear understanding of how to implement the principles of position release/indirect tech. Thank you”
