Have you registered yet for our new year’s workshop on optimizing lower body movement? A PT and nutritionist will be there to coach you, along with a few members of the Psoas clinical team. Here’s a bit about the practitioners from Psoas who’ll be sharing their expertise:

Dr. Katherine McCarty offers holistic chiropractic work at Psoas. During her segment of the workshop, she’ll teach foam rolling techniques for the lower body — and share how this crucial self-care strategy can complement manual adjustments.

Later in the evening, several Psoas therapists will demystify the modalities they use to support athletes — from their hips down to their toes. They’ll also demonstrate stretching practices that extend the benefits of manual therapy:

  • Sarah Day is a dancer, teacher of the Axis Syllabus, and an expert in movement and biomechanics. Her hands-on work draws on myofascial release, deep tissue, and stretching.
  • Chris Ludwig is a former competitive pole vaulter and passionate sports massage therapist. He uses deep tissue as well as functional movement techniques like SFMA.
  • Amos Scattergood is a former competitive cyclist. As a therapist, he uses diverse techniques — including ART, NKT, and taping — to support his clients’ athletic goals.

Learn more about the workshop — and the PT and nutritionist who’ll also be teaching — here. Until then, happy holidays! Looking forward to sharing 2019 with you!
