Back to Work

Well, I know I have been a slacker on the blog postings as of late. I have been busy in the clinic, at home, teaching, running around the country with the Freedom From Pain Institute and working on many side projects.

I have a new article coming out in Massage & Bodywork Magazine, “Tuning the Athlete- Breathing and Lumbar Alignment”. This will appear in the upcoming issue, Nov/Dec Sports Massage issue. This was a tough concept in the beginning. Writing an article like this is a a great self teaching tool, it requires much research, and made me really look deep into what I was thinking about! Much fun! I will post it when the article has hit the stands later this month.

Our massage business in Flagstaff has remained busy through this troubled time in the market. It seems when times are tough people seek out what makes them feel good. A movie, some good comfort food, and good old pain management are on the top of the list, nothing like an hour on the table, to get away, forget the newsman and stock market for a bit. I am honored to play a role, it makes me feel good, in bringing some peace into peoples lives…..thanks folks.

Today begins another 40 hour intensive in Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques(R), at NAMTI in Sedona. This is a great time of year to be able to drive through Oak Creek Canyon, view the wonders of nature every day before class begins…should be a great time once again! The apples are coming out of the orchards and every market seems to have fresh roasted green chilies! YUM!!

I will be joining Erik and the crew from Freedom From Pain at the next workshop in Atlanta, Oct. 17-19.

Myoskeletal Alignment for Neck, Sciatic and Shoulder Pain

Three day seminar provides innovative approaches for the massage therapist to utilize advanced neck, shoulder, and pelvic stabilization routines. Therapists learn immediately applicable deep tissue techniques for clients suffering neck, shoulder, and low back pain.

70% Hands on Seminar: Human dissection videos and “lively” massage demos teach innovative ways to “Find and Fix” tendon, ligament, joint capsule, and nerve impingements. Erik will demo on class participants for the following


  • Neck “Cricks”
  • Facet- Rib Pain
  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
  • Scoliosis
  • SI Joint Pain
  • Piriformis Syndrome
  • Rotator Cuff Injuries
  • Low Back Dysfunction

Dalton’s popular workshop series compliments all forms of manual therapy and offers practical strategies for correcting reflex muscle spasm caused by joint blockage.

Well, off to see the wizard!
