We’re thrilled to announce that Erin Myers will be teaching a continuing ed course called “Analyzing the Scoliotic Body” at Simply Balanced on June 2nd. Keep reading to see Erin’s course description and find our how you can sign up. This course is PMA & ACE CEC approved.

From Erin:

“Scoliosis is often thought of as simply a lateral deviation of the spine; however, the reality is that it’s multi-dimensional. Through this hands-on scoliosis training, you’ll learn how to correctly analyze and assess the different ways in which scoliosis presents itself. Scoliometer and ribcage measuring, in conjunction with other unique assessment techniques, are taught. You’ll gain an understanding of the anatomy of scoliosis and how to work with the medical community. Scoliotic medical research findings are discussed and put into use through effective movements for scoliosis clients. Exercises are taught on the mat, stool, Orbit, Core Align, and B.A.C. Disc Set. Scoliosis breathing techniques and wedging are also presented. The interesting emotional world of scoliosis is touched upon through case study work. After this course, you’ll be able to create private sessions designed to unwind and exercise each unique scoliotic body.

Over the last year I’ve been up to my eyeballs in scoliosis medical research, doing corrective movement therapy on scoliosis clients, and writing my book called The Beautiful Scoliotic Back; Learning to Own Your Scoliosis (which should be ready for purchase in both book and ebook format in June). My passion for corrective scoliotic movements grows with each passing day. As some of you may know, I have idiopathic scoliosis with my major thoracic curve recently measuring at 31 degrees and my compensatory lumbar curve measuring at 23 degrees. I had to take a deep breath and look at the bleak reality that the medical community was offering for my future…spinal fusion surgery. There was no way that surgery was the only option to manage my scoliosis…and I was right. Analyzing the Scoliotic Body is a culmination of my research findings from around the world which have been molded onto equipment that many of us have in our studios.

If you can learn to slow, stop, or even reverse the progression of a client’s scoliosis, you will forever change that client’s life. Not only that, but that client will be yours for life. I have the privilege of experiencing this all the time, and I hope you have the opportunity to do the same in the future. The first step in this process is to learn the basics of how to analyze and work with a client with scoliosis, and I can teach you.
