Seminars & Workshops allow our TFC therapists to deliver a hands on session where anyone willing to join us can learn and more importantly experience restoring and rewiring their feet and hips. We offer a single day 6 hour seminar which covers a deep understanding of foot + hip optimization as well as shorter 2 hour workshops.
Both sessions are directed and open to anyone: Runners, lifters, athletes of any kind, physical therapists, personal trainers, physicians and anyone else that wants to improve their own feet & hips or help others do the same.
If you’re interested in hosting a session at your facility or have a group of people in your area looking to learn, please email email@example.com to inquire further.
Below is a topic outline for our seminar and current workshop offerings:
Each seminar is 6.5 hours long (including a 30 minute lunch break) and is broken down into 5 blocks. Each block is roughly 40% lecture and 60% hands on interactive. The topics for each block are as follows:
