Understand and integrate a wide variety of downtraining techniques for your patients
Everyone always talks about "downtraining," but I'm not really even sure what that means...
Am I downtraining the muscles or the nervous system?
What are techniques other than just breathing?
What if the patient is starting to plateau and I don't have other downtraining tools?
Is downtraining more voluntary or involuntary?
Do I need a biofeedback machine to do downtraining with my patients?
You're not alone! "Downtraining" is crucial for our patients but often poorly defined and never actually taught! This Masterclass will go over everything you need to know to understand downtraining and integrate it into your practice!

Frequently Asked Questions
Why a "Masterclass"?
There are a lot of topics that are incredibly important to our specialty but that don't really warrant their own full course. Instead of cramming them into another course, I wanted to make it more accessible for anyone who was struggling with that particular topic. The information is shorter, more digestable and focused and immediately affects your clinical practice.
How is the Masterclass administered?
We'll do a live recording of the course for everyone who registers. There will be a Q&A following the class to address all your questions. For those unable to make it live the replay will be available a few days later (as well as to re-watch for those who made it live)!

Judy R. (IC Course)
This was the BEST pelvic health class I've ever taken! Even though I couldn't get live lab time, I thought the demos done on a real patient and on a model were so thorough that I could easily translate that over to patient care.
