    In Soft Tissue Release CE Course, Jane Johnson, a chartered physiotherapist and sport massage therapist specializing in musculoskeletal occupational health, shows you proper techniques for the three types of soft tissue release (STR): passive (clients do not help), active-assisted (clients and therapists work together), and active (clients do it on their own). The book and video provide step-by-step guidance on performing each type, along with the key holds, moves, and stances for various muscles, helping you incorporate the proper techniques into a treatment program for your clients.

    The video (approximately 50 minutes) is followed by an exam that contains 75 questions. Upon passing the exam, you may print out and submit a certificate for continuing education credits.
