This four hour DVD covers 21 assessment techniques for the nerves and surrounding structures of the back, pelvis, and legs. The advanced nerve tension tests will allow the therapist to precisely evaluate the sciatic, tibial, peroneal, and sural nerves to discover exactly where they are impinged. Then Doug Alexander, founder of The Journal of Soft Tissue Manipulation and an instructor at Algonquin College in Canada, will lead you through over 32 techniques to release the structures involved. These include myofascial release techniques, fluid (lymphatic) techniques, and muscle release techniques as well as direct nerve gliding and stretching. Each technique is designed to free restrictions along the path of the nerve and normalize tissue function from the hip to the foot. Finally Doug shows 12 home care exercises that the client can do to help support their recovery.

REVIEW in the Australian Association of Massage Therapists 2008 Journal.
“It is one of the best bodywork DVDs I have had the pleasure of watching. The 3D still and animated anatomy graphics are simply awesome and it is jam packed with over 4 hours of assessment and treatment techniques covering the lower back, hip and pelvis and the sciatic nerve along its entire course. At $49.95 for over 4 hours of high quality video instructlon, this represents extremely good value for money.”
