Body-Reading Pro


Body-reading is more than identifying asymmetry. A visual assessment, called a body reading, helps you identify functional and dysfunctional patterns. It also provides valuable information directing the treatment and offers a baseline measurement for treatment success and progression.

Have you ever looked at a client’s body and identify areas of imbalance but have not been able to work out what has caused them and, more importantly, not been able to work out what to do about them? This is where Body Reading Pro can help.

This highly informative course will provide you with essential skills to perform a detailed and valuable client body-reading assessment via video conferencing or face to face. It will also help you understand dysfunction from a whole-body approach where no one part moves in isolation. The course takes you through how to do a postural assessment, what to look for, what it means and what else may be affected due to functional patterns.
