FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q:

What is covered in the ONE DAYINTENSIVE workshop compared to the usual 2-day seminar?

A:

The ONE DAY INTENSIVES focus on a key problem area in depth:

GET A GRIP covers the problem-prone zones of the elbows, hands, wrist & fingers

BALANCING ACT covers the delicate links and interactions between the neck & shoulder

Both ONE DAY INTENSIVES include the key elements of my three-courses-in-one format:

  1. You get hands-on training and paced, in-depth knowledge on applying Trigger Point Therapy to the specific target zone (elbows, hands, wrist & fingers; or neck & shoulders.) You also receive abundant personal guidance and individual attention from Cathy.
  2. You receive guidance and practice in key Therapist Self-Care protocols to make sure you enjoy a long and healthy career as a Trigger Point Therapist.
  3. After the in-person, hands-on Going Beyond Trigger Point Seminar, you’ll receive four weeks of Cathy’s exclusive Follow-Up & Enrichment Program with paced, Reinforcement to ensure retention and integration of the new knowledge and skills you gained during the ONE DAY INTENSIVE.

Q:

I have taken a Core Unit Seminar with Cathy before. What is new or different about the ONE DAYINTENSIVES?

A:

Please see answer to the first question above.

The ONE DAY INTENSIVE strengthens your grasp of the Core Unit knowledge, but more importantly, it provides additional training in “Connecting the Dots” to improve your evaluation skills and your therapeutic effectiveness.

You will learn new techniques and protocols, and gain a deeper understanding of both the mechanics and principles of Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy.

Q:

I am completely new to Trigger Point -- is this for experienced Trigger Point Therapists only?

A:

The ONE DAY INTENSIVES are specially designed for therapists who are already familiar with the basics of Trigger Point Therapy, or who have attended at least one seminar with Cathy.

If you are new, I recommend that you get a much more thorough introduction to Trigger Point Therapy by taking any one of the 3 ½ day Going Beyond Trigger Points Seminars. Cathy also teaches two-day weekend workshops in the four Core Units at different locations around the country, and these could also serve as an excellent introduction to Trigger Point Therapy.

If the One Day Intensive is the only workshop that fits your schedule, you may attend, but I ask you to complete my FREE Introduction to Trigger Point Therapy "The Challenges of Treating Clients with Muscular Pain" available here.

Q:

Do the ONE DAYINTENSIVES include a follow-up program?

A:

The 4-week Follow-Up Enrichment & Integration online multimedia program is an exclusive feature of the Beyond Trigger Point Seminars system. It is designed to help you “digest” and integrate the knowledge and techniques you learn during your Intensive.

This paced online program will reinforce and expand on your hands-on training, and will include helpful handouts, summaries and videos.

Please plan to take full advantage of this 4-week Follow-Up Enrichment & Integration online Program. There is no additional cost, and it will help you to better apply your new skills.

You can access the complete current schedule of Cathy’s 1, 2, and 3 ½ day courses here, both in Florida and around the country.

If you have any additional questions, I’ll be happy to answer them.
