Chris' comprehensive training in Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy, Craniosacral Therapy and Deep Tissue massage coupled with his knowledge on movement and body connectivity and corrective exercise make Core Body Therapy one of the leading institutions for Myofascial Release training.

Our Education Philosophy

Core Body Therapy endeavours to teach a solid foundation in musculoskeletal and myofascial anatomy with a hands-on approach to learning through ample practical time to complete the cognitive and kinaesthetic approach.

Core Body Therapy courses foster an environment of curiosity and exploration to ensure active engagement by all participants. The focus of our courses is to offer high quality training that will not only improve clinical results but also deliver a profound understanding of the musculoskeletal and myofascial system and the development of the therapists tactile skills to the highest level.
