Treating the trunk, pelvis and lower extremity.
Are you looking for skills that are easier on your own body but still return excellent treatment results?
MFR has been heralded as the missing link in therapy because it supports all of your existing skills drawing them together allowing you to provide a unique and profounds treatment approach that will undoubtably grow your practice.
Myofascial Release for the Lower Body is a hands-on practical workshop that will teach you how to incorporate myofascial approaches into your existing practice. You’ll learn valuable and informative assessments, as well as how to use sustained gentle techniques and structural direct soft tissue techniques.
This workshop is perfect for manual therapists who want to take their skills to the next level. With myofascial release, you can help ease the strain on your own body while treating patients with confidence and skill.

Claire started her career as a PE teacher specialising in hockey, athletics and trampolining. After having to have two back surgeries, Claire refocused into sports injuries and myofascial release. She started her training in 2006 and met Ruth in 2008 when she began her journey with MFR. She was immediately taken by the “fascial web” and furthered her training in the USA with John Barnes.
Claire used her combined knowledge in treating athletes at the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics and again in the Commonwealth Games of 2014 and 2018. Claire is a sports injuries therapist, an advanced MFR specialist and an assistant for the MFR UK courses. In her own practice, she focuses on treatments using integrated myofascial release for functional movement, women’s health and scar release.
