Discover How Kyle Wright’s CE Courses Give YOU
A Definite and Profound Professional Advantage.

Kyle Wright manually treating Student's neckKyle’s courses are precisely thought out and deeply serious in nature.

Our objective is to teach students how to quite their minds while quieting their hands. Students learn the importance of effective communication when teaching clients the art of how to receive bodywork.

NO Pain, MORE Gain & the Parasympathetic Nerve System

Consciously applied and consciously received bodywork allow clients to fall into a deep, parasympathetic, relaxing state, reducing accumulated C.E.M.&.N.T. or Chronic, Excess Muscle & Nerve Tension & Stress.

Deep work with a non-painful approach positively affects the central nervous system. Our No Pain = More Gain approach stimulates the client’s parasympathetic response so the client can “let go” of their deeper levels of chronic muscle tension, often stored deep in their neuromuscular memory.

“Seeing” More Deeply Into the Structure & Posture

Most therapists practicing today believe in what they “see” on the surface while viewing a client’s posture is what is “real” going on deeper in the structure. The surface contours of the body very often give the exact opposite “information” as to what the bones are actually doing.

More often, than not, and to many the eye, more common approaches to postural analysis lead therapists to see many false illusions as to what is really going on structurally.

In comparison, our approach to Structural Assessment gives students more concrete evidence as to what the spine and bone & joint structure is actually doing in relationship to the pelvis and gravity.

For example, many clients appearing to have a so-called “swayback” — incorrectly referred defined as an “anterior tilted pelvis” with “excess lordosis” (forward curve of the lumbar spine). Yet the majority of people, in fact, do NOT have an excessively anterior tilted pelvis and excess lordosis. In fact, we see most people in modern society as having the exact opposite structural imbalances as commonly assumed: a posterior pelvic tilt with loss of lumbar curve.

“Swayback” is a slang term that in the 1950s became more associated with LOSS of lumbar curve and increased kyphosis with a neutral or posterior tilted pelvis. Yet imprecise methods of postural evaluation led to confusion of it’s meaning.

In a nutshell, in many cases, what people think they see visually is often the opposite as to often what’s going on structurally below the skin. Discovering how to “see” below the skin is what we focus on.

Gravity and the Downward Collapsed, Stooped Posture

Postural Collapse & Distortion

Copyright © David Scott Lynn 2016

The compensatory reactors in the posterior torso (gluteals, back and neck) are often “hyper-tonused” (tensed up) or “electrically charged” and under the constant downward pull of gravity. This adaptively downward spiral literally compresses the body into a Downward Collapsed, “Stooped” Posture, very often with one side shorter than the other, leading to left / right imbalances as well (such as a high hip).

The chronology of events following from long-term muscular imbalances, poor posture and gravity playing upon the structure boggles the minds of many. Muscular imbalances and the accumulation of C.E.M.&.N.T. often store up in over-lengthened yet hyper-tense muscles opposing the over-shortened muscles. And often, “where the pain is — it ain’t.”

Many pain sufferers have had their backs aggressively dug into using physical strength and force to no avail or only temporary results, and much of the time feeling weaker and sometimes in more pain after they were treated.

Aggressive Work is NOT Necessary

Many of these aggressive treatments such as deep stripping, cross-fiber friction and foam rolling do very little in comparison to slow, steady, sinking, static compressions into the bellies of the muscles.

Muscle bellies are the only element in the human body with a physiological ability to significantly exert force or relax and shorten or lengthen, everything else being comparatively static. Our seminars are geared toward the slower, steadily, sinking, non-painful work to the over-shortened, chronically tense muscles — not necessarily where the client feels their pain.

The bottom line is, localized (treating where it hurts) and excessively aggressive work, can cause more harm than good.

Become One of “The Elite” of
Clinical & Structural Bodywork

Over the past 30 years, I’ve had the pleasure of training thousands of licensed manual therapists in our unique approach in resolving chronic excess muscle and nerve tension (C.E.M.&.N.T.) and structural imbalance.

And many of our theories go against many of the so-called “experts” in massage therapy education.

If this stimulates your interest, and you’re looking for valuable insights into the adaptive and compensatory reactions of muscles and the painful conditions they cause, then these workshops are a must.

Students will leave the workshops Inspired and Rejuvenated, and their own bodies decompressed. 

At the same time, you’ll learn and experience our unique approach to resolving chronic excess muscle and nerve tension & stress (C.E.M.&.N.T.). All along, you’ll learn to play your client’s edges of fear, resistance, guarding and pain.

I highly encourage all manual therapists wanting a seminar that will exceed your expectations to come join my Staff and I for a day or more so that together we can continue to enlighten the world to the value of soft tissue therapy, our unique approach, and how it fits into our healthcare system today and in the future.

If this makes sense to you and you want to become part of an elite group of bodywork professionals, come join us and you’ll experience the difference.

Sincerely,
Kyle C. Wright, LBMT

The Pelvis, SI & Hip

3-Images-Psoas-2In this workshop you will learn how pelvic distortion affects the sacroiliac and hip joints. You will learn structural assessment and treatment strategies for the most problematic muscles affecting the pelvis. Because if the pelvis is crooked, the spine will be crooked, then a slew of compensatory reactions go into effect to keep the eyes level with the horizon.

Muscular imbalances such as twists, tilts and rotations of the pelvis and the most common root causes of deviated leg lengths will be explored.

Our former students know and understand that if you had one thing to accomplish when evaluating and treating a person’s body, you want to level the pelvis and restore symmetry in leg lengths.

Think of the pelvis as a bowl in which the spine sits in forming the sacroiliac joints.

If someone has sacroiliac joint dysfunction, would it not be a great service to look at all the muscles that attach and traverse the path over these joints as well as imbalances between these muscles?

There will be No Pain involved during this workshop.

The Lumbar & Cervical Spine

HumanModel-Torso-Spine-In this workshop you will learn how to structurally assess the spine from top to bottom.

You will learn how to evaluate and treat the over-shortened muscles contributing to chronic low back and neck pain; not just treating the body parts where they hurt.  Very often, where pain presents, the pain originates from distant yet related muscles that are “locked short” somewhere else in the body.

For instance, the hamstring muscle group has the ability to pull down on the back of the ischiums, rotating the pelvis posteriorly. This in turn flattens the lumbar spine (loss of lumbar curve) decreasing the space between rib cage and pelvis.

This straightening of the lumbar curve puts direct downward pressure on the lower lumbar spinal discs and facet joints. With abdominal muscles adaptively shortening, the rib cage is pulled down, tilting it forward, and projecting the head into a forward head position. This further straightens the cervical spine.

This straightening (loss of cervical curve), puts direct downward pressure on the lower cervical discs, similar to that of the lower lumbar discs.

It is imperative to treat the spine as a whole unit, because if the lumbar spine straightens, so often the cervical spine straightens as well.

“How do I make proper changes in the right muscle groups?”

In this workshop, we address the primary muscle groups that are often the culprits of painful chronic back and neck conditions.

“Freeing Up” The Scapula & Thoracic Spine

Skeletal-CollapsedThis workshop deepens your understanding of how a “stuck scapula” restricts the thoracic spine.

When a person slouches into a Downward Collapsed “Stooped” Posture, muscles attaching anterior to the frontal plane shorten, pulling the ribcage down and forward, narrowing the space between the ribcage and pelvis (the waist).

Therefore, let’s assume muscles attaching posterior of the frontal plane will lengthen (even though at the same time becoming increasingly “tight”).

The reality is, the back muscles are then continually recruited to counter-act the over-shortened anterior (abdominal) muscles and downward collapsing of the anterior torso.

The farther the upper torso pulls down and projects forward, the more electrically charged (hypertonic) the back muscles become to prevent the torso from collapsing forward and down.

Regardless in which body plane, when muscular imbalances are revealed, joint restrictions and pain are often present. To what degree pain and restriction occurs depends on many factors; just one being, how long has the condition existed?

Short muscles can be painful, but more often than not, chronic pain settles in chronically lengthened yet also “tensed up” muscles. A muscle can be over-lengthened yet even tighter than it’s over-shortened antagonist. Pain is a signal that the posterior torso muscles are in neuromuscular exhaustion, fatigued and apparently “weak.” It’s a signal, warning the body it needs to adjust or realign, meaning, to sit or stand up straight, yet without further engaging already overly tense back muscles.

Sitting and standing straight returns the gravitational line to normal, bisecting the bones and not stressing the muscles. The trick is, how do we relax & lengthen our way to postural balance, rather than tensing certain muscles to “hold” ourselves in allegedly better posture with excess muscle tension?

The anterior torso muscles — Abdominals, Serratus Anterior, Pectoralis Major, Pectoralis Minor — produce a continuous kinetic musculo-fascial chain connecting the pelvis with ribcage, and the ribcage with scapula, clavicle and arm. Prolonged sitting with inadequate lumbar support shortens this musculo-fascial chain causing back extensors, scapula retractors and upper respiratory muscles to “tense up.”

One must learn how to “free up” the scapula to relieve restrictions of the thoracic spine.

August 6 & 7, 2016

Rotator Cuff & Frozen Shoulder

This workshop enhances your understanding of how the rotator cuff muscles limit range-of-motion of the glenohumeral joint and associated trigger point pain patterns one may experience when dysfunction of the shoulder is present.

The rotator cuff muscles — Supraspinatus, Infraspinatus, Teres Minor and Subscapularis — also known as the “SITS” muscles, stabilize the head of the humerus into the glenoid fossa. The rotator cuff muscles are often involved with sport related repetitive motion injuries and straining from muscle overload. Chronic excess muscle and nerve tension of the Supraspinatus muscle has the ability to compress the subacromial bursa.

Inflammation of the bursa from friction is experienced when tension builds up within the respective muscle belly. It’s a common injury when the tendon, which hides under the acromion process, doesn’t glide smoothly over the bursa.

The Supraspinatus often rides high into the socket causing an impingement syndrome and likely to produce clicking and popping noises upon abduction of the humerus.

3-Shoulder-Muscle-Torso-PainPatternThe Infraspinatus is the largest of the SITS muscles. The three heads of the Infraspinatus converge on the posterior tubercles of the humerus, severely inhibiting flexion movements when lifting an arm over the head. The Infraspinatus is involved with pain referrals mimicking a dull “throbbing” ache referring into the bicep, triceps and lateral epicondyle of the elbow.

The Teres Minor shares the site of origin with the Infraspinatus on the infra-scapular fossa and has a distinct localized pain at the back of the acromion process. Since they both laterally rotate the humerus, it’s best to treat them as a pair.

The most important and widely overlooked muscle is the Subscapularis. It’s involved in all frozen shoulders and takes mastery to isolate and treat using a non-painful approach. Severe pain is often experienced with lateral rotation of the humerus. Pain generated by the Subscapularis can disrupt normal, everyday activities and can be very hard to find a comfortable sleeping position.

This is a must workshop for all therapists working with C/Ps suffering from chronic and debilitating shoulder syndromes.

Sub-Occipital Compression, Restriction & Headaches

3-Images_NeckThis seminar enhances your understanding of the atlanto-occipital and the atlanto-axial joints. The C-1 vertebra (Atlas) articulates with the posterior underlying surface of the occipital bone.

Motions of rocking and tilting the head occur from vertical fibers of the obliquus capitis superior and the rectus capitis posterior minor muscles. These primary muscles are often in a state of chronic excess muscle and nerve tension (C.E.M.&.N.T.) as they’re often recruited as the body’s “last-ditch” effort in maintaining the eyes level with the horizon. Of course, there is a supporting crew of superficial muscles synergistically functioning along with these deeper, primary muscles.

The C-2 vertebra (axis) has a distinctive landmark projecting superior, named the odontoid process or the dens. It is the odontoid process of C-2 that C-1 articulates with. The C-1 Atlas rotates around the C-2 Axis, producing approximately 50% of cervical rotation.

The posterior sub-occipital muscles are headache producers with pain patterns wrapping around the head from the posterior occipital region to the temporal region. People suffering from this type of headache pattern often feel as if their head is being squeezed in a vice.

When a person sustains a motor vehicle accident, cervical “whiplash” can occur. A whiplash (micro tears within muscles) increases neurological activity within the central nervous system. This increased neurological activity causes muscles to spasm and shorten, vasoconstricting the blood vessels, stopping the bleeding within the muscles.

The severity of the impact, amount of trauma to the muscles and the person’s general state of health, often determines the amount of time it takes for healing. Postural imbalances often facilitate sub-occipital compression, especially when loss of the cervical is present.
