Muscle Balancing (MB), formerly known as Positional Release Therapy is a 3-day class.  This newly revised class focuses on the manual therapy technique used to evaluate patient tender points and treat protective muscle spasm. It is offered in two separate workshops: Muscle Balancing: Upper Quadrant (MBUQ) and Muscle Balancing: Lower Quadrant (MBLQ). To hear about the benefits of Muscle Balancing (formerly called Positional Release Therapy), listen to Dr. Kerry D'Ambrogio's explanations.

Joint Balancing (JB), formerly called Muscle Energy Technique is a 3-day class. Also offered in both Upper Quadrant and Lower Quadrant seminars, this therapy is for pediatric to geriatric patient populations with neurological conditions, sports injuries, automobile injuries and general orthopedic conditions.

Fascial Balancing(FB), new to the D'Ambrogio Institute offerings will be first offered in 2015. To get introduced to Fascial Balancing and myofascial release benefits, watch this video by Dr. D'Ambrogio.


Study Groups & Practice Groups  
Enjoy the Benefits

Study groups create wonderful opportunities to practice the skills you have already learned and further your understanding of your chosen modality by sharing experiences and asking questions of other like-minded practitioners.

Study groups include hands-on practice, techniques review and time available to have your questions answered.  Study Groups are led by Instructors, Teaching Assistants, or Certified Therapists. 

Practice groups are more informal, and allow for students to practice in order to prepare for further study.

To learn more about adult learning and why Study Groups are so important, click here.

What Our Students Are Saying About...
TBB1 - January 2014 with Instructor Kerry D'Ambrogio

"I did not know much about TBB when I signed up for the Dallas TBB1 workshop, but after finishing the 4 day class, I have to tell you that I was pleasantly surprised.  The moves are very simple and does not look like much. But was I wrong! The workshop was wonderful, my body feels better, less restricted and my psychic abilities have improved at least 15% or more (WOW). I incorporated TBB with one of my regular clients today and it was totally magical. Thank you Kerry, Tracy and Sheri, you are true professionals. I can hardly wait for TBB2 and TBE classes to be offered."
