There are many varieties of Functional Methods. The most commonly practiced variations are Unwinding and
Functional-Indirect. While these two low-force yet powerful treatment methods allow the practitioner to accomplish a

For 2017, this course will teach 16 distinct assessment methods. The assessment methods are organized into a protocol
to find the most productive place to work at each moment. Each assessment method provides some information, but not
all information. Comparing observations from several assessment methods facilitates finding the most productive place to
work at each moment of a treatment session. Some assessment methods will be used in every assessment, others will be
brought in as situations arise. For a full list of assessment methods to be taught, see the calendar.
19 treatment methods will be taught along with sub-variations and combinations. Once the best entry point has been
determined, treatment methods can be selected to make effective change quickly and comfortably with little effort. In the
uniqueness and complexity of our clients, each functional treatment method provides another potential avenue to
normalize tight or lax tissue in the body. A classification system for treatment methods will be presented, which can lead
to the development of new treatment variations. For a full list of treatment methods taught, see the calendar.
