This is a map of some of the tenderpoints representing dysfunction in the musculoskeletal system.

We are marching our way through locating a bunch of tenderpoints in the thoracic spine, ribs, and lumbar spine. Once found, we utilize the technique to ease the contraction and turn off the tenderpoint. Because fellow classmates don’t necessarily have these dysfunctions, treatment can be somewhat theoretical. For me, theory is great but reality is even better and defiantly more memorable.  Which leaves me hoping that clients will come in this week with some of these tenderpoints! I feel truly blessed to be able to come back and have clients who are excited to experience the work and allow me to explore and learn how to diversify my skills and knowledge. Thank you!
