Why Take this Workshop?

Improve your hands-on techniques!

With greater mastery comes better client results and reviews, as well as potential earnings.

We will assess the tight areas which create range of motion dysfunction in necks, such as the upper back, and pectoral – scalene – rib patterns.

Mark’s most successful techniques for unlocking chronic neck issues include:

  • Suboccipital stretch – to decrease lordosis
  • Inion bone suboccipital stretch at C2
