Learn the Techniques or Get Certified to Teach Them

Want to learn how to take better care of your muscles?

Come learn what is possible through self-care.

With our hands-on clinics you will learn how to work your body from head to toe, locate the muscles that contribute to proper joint function, and address the ones that limit proper range of motion when they lock up.

If your issue is muscle related you’ll learn techniques that can help. You will also learn cues for proper tool placement, ‘land marking’, and body position, as well as when it is time to call a licensed therapist.

Corporate Wellness/Group Instruction

Choose from the Neck & Shoulder, Hip & Low Back, Knees (thighs & calves), or Ankles (calves & feet)

Prior to contacting us about setting up a corporate wellness series the company owner/human resources manager should gather feedback from the organization regarding the area of interest for the self-care course.

There are 4 specific areas of the body we cover:


• The Shoulders, Neck & Arms.
• The Hips & Lower Back.
• The Thighs, Knees, and Calves.
• The Calves, Ankles, and Feet.

We set up an assessment date to determine each person’s starting functional range of motion. We follow the assessment date with 4 60 to 90 minute training sessions tailored to the group’s needs. We conduct the follow up assessment to note progress in the sixth and final session.
Each class (including the assessments) include “homework” for each participant based on their individual area of concern, which is briefly addressed in the beginning of the following class. Clear, identifiable markers are taught so the the individual can note progress or regression in order to confirm they are practicing the techniques properly and avoid the possibility of making their problem worse.

Criteria/requirements/host bonus
• 1 meter x 2 meters of open floor space per person
• large whiteboard or projector
• min 10 people per 6-session series (no more than 20 participants per series)
• classes offered at $50 per person

  1. Hi Jeff,

    I took your a level 1 class years ago at One World CF in Union City CA. Do you have a document showing my completion hours and credits? Also I am interested in expanding my training and taking more classes. I was going to sign up for a membership but I wanted to know if you had any sort of treatment for Tennis Elbow. That’s the new ailment that has been plaguing me and coming between my workouts. If so, where can I find it? Thanks!

    1. Adrian, it’s good to hear from you! I just sent you an email with a link to your certificate from the class. It was good for 8 contact hours of instruction through the National Academy of Sports Medicine. We have some workshops and certs on our site now, and new ones going into the schedule soon. As for fixing tennis elbow, you should meet with a therapist to rule out any medical need for assistance, then we have a series of techniques using the rollers, balls, compression straps, and some nutritional support to help the tight muscles affecting your recovery. Message me at jeff@smrtips.com so we can discuss how to get you into a class or private session sooner than later. Approaching an issue like tennis elbow will need some regular care but also some caution, and the order of what you should do is better taught in person rather than via the web.

  2. Hi Jeff
