Facilities where courses are held are handicap accessible.
When a student calls and identifies himself or herself
as disabled, instructor/sponsor will discuss their needs
and how to best accommodate them in the classroom. Student
must give instructor/sponsor notification of special
needs prior to the beginning of the class allowing adequate
time for reasonable allowances to be made. Allowances
for special needs will be met as long as they do not
impose an "undue burden" on the instructor
as listed in the ADA.
I do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion,
sex or national origin.
According to one student,
this technique has become her deep tissue technique
and she now "Works smarter, not harder".

The Berry Method® is termed corrective as the intention
is to directly address and correct the numerous MUSCULAR
components within the tensions and adaptive compensations
that are often associated with pain, physical trauma,
postural distortions, etc. A variety of physical disorders
are characterized by a distortion within skeletal muscles. This
is often a primary contributing factor in many muscular/skeletal
Obviously, pain directly affects physical
health and performance. Pain can also serve as an important
indication of how the muscles are currently functioning
and provide the educated and aware therapist an indicator
of the protocols required to reduce those pains. Any
pain can decrease efficiency of movement and create
undesirable injuries and compensations. The physical-muscular
adaptations created as a result of pain can trigger
more pain and other injuries far away from the site
of the original problem. When something hurts, consider
that as an important message....one that should be respected
and corrected ASAP!!!
Imagine the ability of the tissue to
function in the following illustrations....
Healthy muscle tissue....the are no obstructions to
contraction and relaxation.
UN-healthy muscle tissue ...consider any muscular/skeletal
problem, chances are there is some degree of muscle
problems associated with an inability to fully contract
and relax due to adhesion and distortion. These classes
address the specific distortions often associated with
the topic of focus....Back, knee, elbow, shoulder, wrist,
It is assumed that health, structure and function are
synergistically related. Thus any improvement towards
correcting the body’s ongoing muscular balancing
act within gravity will improve the bodies overall functioning
and health. The primary goal is not to "heal"
the body as much as it is to quickly reduce soft tissue
imbalances, thus encouraging the body to use its incredible
innate abilities to nourish, maintain and heal itself.
These NCBTMB approved classes
merge precision deep tissue massage techniques with
specific anatomy & physiology
enabling therapists to quickly and efficiently utilize
The classes at Muscle Management® strive to promote
higher levels of learning. We aim to combine the application
of our technique along with analysis and synthesis of
anatomy knowledge as it directly applies to massage,
effectively raising the bar for massage learning objectives.

As a student progress through the sequence they begin
to gather a greater appreciation for the 'inter-connectedness'
of the body...for
example how carpal tunnel symptoms can often be successfully
addressed by including specific elbow massage or that
ankle issues can be traced to distortions around the
knee. (see Nose
These classes will familiarize students with the soft
tissue concerns associated with problems presented by
our clientele and the appropriate procedures to address
and reduce those concerns.
Muscle manipulation and deep tissue procedures presented
releasing adhesions within soft
tissue structures and layers
mobilizing some of the bodies
correcting soft tissue distortion
accessing and encouraging the
bodies' repair mechanisms
recognizing adaptive compensation
Classes are structured so therapist's
are enabled to better understand pain signals and incorporate
these incredibly effective soft tissue manipulation
procedures immediately into their present system of
massage and bodywork. Consider them as new tools for
toolbox".There will be lots of hands on practice!
