Advanced Myo-Fascial Release 103

2-Day Clinic

This 3rd clinic demonstrates the “Langley Mock Chiro” series of techniques. These are legal MFR modified moves derived from popular chiropractic practices. Chiropractic is popular amongst equine competitors, but is often being performed by illegal therapist and the results are usually not sustaining. The only practitioners in the State of WA who can legally perform chiropractic moves on a horse and charge for them is a veterinary.

This class teaches what is typically taught in an equine chiropractic classes, but with a modified version of hand positions which are legal for massage therapist to perform. As a licensed massage therapist with decades of experience treating horses, Mary Lou has developed her own unique and highly effective method that produces lasting effects with the horse soft tissue. Remember, bones don’t move on their own, muscle via a tendon attachment move bones by pulling on the bone.

Knowing these moves will greatly enhance your business and benefit your clients. These techniques of MFR will give you an edge in this competitive market of “body workers”.

Please note: Clinic IS NOT a practitioner/certification course. Clinic includes 16 hours of education (9am – 5pm for 2 days). Limited to 10 participants.

When: October 21st-22nd 2023

I recently attended the Advanced Myo-Fascial Release “Mock Chiro” clinic and it was amazing! Mary Lou taught us the history of chiropractics and how to adapt the moves so they’re within our scope of practice as a massage therapist! This was super helpful to me as I now know 100% that what I can do in my practice is equal and even greater to that of chiropractors. This clinic has given me a lot of confidence in my ability to help each horse I work with as well as the knowledge to better communicate to clients the benefits of what I can do versus what a normal chiropractor will do for their horse. Thank you Mary Lou for a wonderful weekend and for giving me this information and confidence that I will be able to use for years to come!” – Kirsten Dunford

I took the mock chiro clinic this spring.  It was interesting to see what was out there as far as chiropractic treatments go and how what we  do as massage therapists can be just as effective.  I highly recommend this clinic.  It was a great confidence builder!” – Stacie Robinson, Former 300 Hour Graduate 2021

“I thoroughly enjoyed the Myo-Fascial Release Clinic -‘Mock’ Chiro class at Langley Equine Studies. Equine Chiro has been around for a long time and is very popular but I had concerns for the abrupt thrusting and as popular as it is, it has to be used more often since it doesn’t seem to hold for long. I have also worked on horses injured by equine chiropractors due to the abrupt head wrenching moves. This class demonstrated common chiropractor methods and taught MFR methods to use on the same areas chiropractors are trying to impact. I had already been using some similar so for me …it confirmed what I already knew, that soft tissue restrictions and injuries caused the issue and that I was right on target to continue addressing the tissue to best make long term change and comfort for my clients. I highly recommend this class! – Jackie Mackenzie – Texas, Jackie’s Equine Therapy

“I attended Mary Lou’s clinic in fall 2020. As an upcoming therapist, it was important to me to continue my education and be informed on the difference one can make with the horses’ muscles and body, doing myofascial releases and muscle manipulation instead of adjustments.
Mary Lou reviews the chiropractic move with you and adjusts it to the massage level.
It taught me the difference in Chiropractic moves and massage / Myo-Fascial moves that can be done on horses and what I can do differently, getting better results. The clinic showed me, as a massage student and soon to be therapist, how to achieve results without ‘chiropractic adjustments.’
I highly recommend this clinic to broaden your knowledge on the differences between the two. Mary Lou’s vast knowledge of the horse’s system is unlike no other, and I am ever grateful to know her. If you get the chance, I recommend you attend this clinic. Very empowering.” – Marcie Loshbaugh

“The clinic helped me understand the thinking and logic behind chiropractic and showed me a way to communicate to my future clients. Mary Lou showed alternative methods to get the same (if not better) result and apply it to my massage techniques while keeping everything smooth, natural and flowing.” – Jamie Kaupp

“A big thank you to you, Mary Lou Langley! I absolutely loved attending your Langley Equine Advanced Myofascial workshop this past weekend. The information was spot on, easy to understand, utilize and so effective! You NEVER disappoint! You are always worth the time, energy and effort! Thank you so much!” – Audra Walley

This weekend I was able to attend the Advanced Myofascial Release “Mock Chiro” series at Langley Equine Studies. It was a fun, educational and eye opening clinic. We were taught the history of chiropractic studies and all the moves the chiropractor does and how to make them more beneficial to the horse and also legal! This weekend has given me the knowledge to be not only competitive with chiropractors but better with results that last! Thank you Mary Lou for once again going above and beyond to make highly educated and successful students whether they are taking this clinic for their personal horses or a therapist taking continuing education.” – Tara Castro

I was lucky enough to attend the Advanced Myofascial Release course at
Langley Equine Studies this past weekend, where I learned new skills and techniques to better help your horses return to their full and correct range of motion, without force or stress. What a day! Invaluable information that will reap huge rewards for your horses, and I am very excited to add these tools to my work. Huge thanks to Mary Lou for another stellar education.” – Beth Hill, Equilibrium Equine Bodywork
