SMR Clinics & Mini-Clinics


SMR instruction at the 2009 CrossFit Games


Come learn what is possible through self-care.

With our hands-on workshops you will learn how to work your body from head to toe, locate the muscles that contribute to proper joint function, and address the ones that limit proper range of motion when they lock up.

If your issue is muscle related you’ll learn techniques that can help.

You will also learn cues for proper tool placement and body position, as well as when it is time to call a licensed therapist.

2-Hour Introduction to SMR Mini-Clinic


You will be learn how to approach the primary and secondary muscle regions that you should be working on through your SMR homework. (Do your homework!) We will cover 6 to 10 of the 19 regions during the course of the class, with the class participants playing an active part in determining which areas we focus on.

Not all joint problems can be fixed through SMR, but you will learn what to look for so you know when to buckle down and do more self-care, and when you should pick up that phone and call for help.

Imagine 90 minutes of massage…it’s similar to that!

All participants receive 2 hours of hands-on instruction in the Alexander Method of SMR, a digital copy of the Fundamentals of SMR manual (Written instructions with full-color pictures and anatomical illustrations for all 19 fundamental SMR exercises in a 85-page workbook) and a high-density SMR ball.

Additional educational materials are available as well as products from Rumble Roller, Trigger Point Performance, massage-grade marble or basalt stones, and some of the other balls, blocks and rollers we have selected as appropriate for SMR.

Register for as little as $50 per person

From the first hour you’ll be engrossed in hands-on SMR techniques addressing the 3 primary regions, the relevant portions of the 16 secondary regions, and the 14 extended regions that affect the shoulder or the 15 extended regions that affect the hip & lower back. The majority of the class is targeted at either the shoulder or the hip, with any additional areas covered as time permits.

You will learn how to address the first, next, and last muscles that you should be working on through your SMR homework. (Do your homework!)

How to program SMR into your training is a big part of this class, and you’ll walk away with a much deeper appreciation of how to recognize whether you need more roller or ball work, more rest between SMR sessions, or whether you really must enlist the aid of professional assistance.

    Richard, yes, the registration is open to athletes from other gyms (CrossFit or other). I just found an error in the registration code that showed the October registration as happening in June. That is now fixed. Register on the page below.

    I’ll see you there!
