The primary focus of this course is to promote an understanding of functional neurology in the clinical setting. The course is divided into classroom instruction involving everyday practice of principles, and live demonstration and practice of newly learned concepts. The learner will be introduced to fundamental concepts of functional neurology and how traditional massage therapy, acupuncture and other therapies can be enhanced to accommodate client’s functional neurological deficits.
