M2 Muscle Energy Techniques DVDM2 Techniques DVD

For the neck, shoulder, thoracic vertebrae and ribs

This beautifully produced DVD covers detailed techniques for the neck, general shoulder techniques, and specific treatments for the thoracic vertebrae and the ribs. This includes techniques for balancing the occiput on the atlas, the atlas on the axis, and other techniques for the rest of the cervical vertebrae. Also, Tom shows techniques to assess and re-align each thoracic vertebrae, and how to correct rib dysfunctions such as ribs that are stuck in inhalation, exhilation, and compressed ribs. On the muscular side, this DVD shows many releases for the neck/shoulder region that can be done before the joints are addressed.

If you want to know how to assess each part of the body and then perform gentle techniques to correct the dysfunction, this DVD is for you! 3 hrs. 5 min.

Reviews of the DVDs

"Tom Ockler P.T. has produced a teaching DVD for the Osteopathic originated Muscle Energy Technique (MET) that is clearly articulated, elegantly demonstrated, and has what most teaching DVDs overlook … repetition of the basic concepts enough times that the viewer has the time, space, and opportunity to lock in the concepts in preview to taking an actual hands-on course or, for a former student, the same, to reflect on their kinesthetic experience … adding a depth of cognitive understanding with a review of the positional set-ups and language that is unique to this exquisite approach to somatic dysfunction. This DVD is the best that I have seen in my 25 years of teaching this approach to dedicated manual therapy practitioners and using MET within my clinical practice. His teaching integrates humor, humanity, and expertise in his delivery. I will be encouraging my students to purchase this DVD series."

Respectfully, Dale G. Alexander Ph.D. M.A. L.M.T.   (Student of Richard MacDonald D.O., who was among the first 16 Osteopaths directly taught by the developer of Muscle Energy Technique, Dr. Fred Mitchell Sr. D.O. in the mid-1960s. Co-author with Dr. MacDonald of the first Muscle Energy Workbook for the Upledger Institute in 1989. Certified Muscle Energy Instructor for the Upledger Institute, 1989 – 94.)

"I love Tom Ockler. His 2 DVDs are brilliant and fantastic value. I think he's one of the best there is. I only wish he lived in the UK. Erik Dalton, John Gibbons, Leon Chaitow, and Tom Ockler. My favourite therapists!" Tom G, via You Tube

"Thomas' videos are very easy to learn from. He has a way of explaining the details so they are easily understood. His videos are very informative with a real client who actually has some of the problems that the MET he is demonstrating will help."   Aurora G., LMT

"Just wanted to let you know I've read most of the way through the M3 manual and watched quite a bit of the M1 DVD last evening. It's fabulous! Thanks for such great info. Corrected my husband's paradoxical downslipped ilium with short leg, and my depressed pubic bone (which is always symptomatic for me during pregnancy). Awesome, easy to understand, and so so gentle compared to what I've experienced before. I'm excited to continue learning and practicing more."  Angel, DPT
