Joint Mobilisations Techniques for the Older Adult: A CPD workshop
This continual professional workshop will give you the confidence to work with older adults that are frail and those who are less mobile. You will learn safe and effective joint mobilisations and stretches that will improve their mobility and stability. This will help to increase the range and ease of movement needed for everyday tasks. These gentle techniques work deep into the joint and improve health by promoting blood flow and reducing joint pain and tension.
We will work on a table through clothes, as no oil is required. The techniques are informed by shiatsu and can be easily integrated into your current form of bodywork.
