To simplify and share information influencing our muscular system via individual sessions, live classes, and here on my website.
Our bodies have over 600 muscles.
Every one of those 600 muscles influences our overall health.
My intention is to share the following:
- A unique understanding and perspective on our musculoskeletal system and its role in our daily lives.
- Steps towards taking an active and knowledgable approach to maintaining this vital and primary system in its most balanced, healthy, and functional pain-free state.
Every cell in the human body requires moisture.
That moisture is constantly being refreshed, recycled, and replaced.
The lymphatic system plays an essential role in that process.
This class is about much more than drainage.
While Western medicine recently 'discovered' the importance of the lymphatic system, eastern medicine appears to have been recognizing and working with the lymphatic system for centuries. The lymphatic systems' participation in disease pathogenesis can often appear poorly understood when considered via the Western approach... Lauren's unique approach and protocols help bridge some of those important gaps.
It's relatively simple.
Muscles can become 'stuck.'
Stuck muscles create tension and pain.
Every manual therapy shares the common goal of moving stuck muscles.
This class focuses on teaching you a uniquely efficient and effective 'do-it-yourself' therapeutic approach to un-sticking the ones most often contributing to hip and back pain.
The information comes from studying, practicing, sharing, and teaching The Lauren Berry Method® of Corrective Massage for over 40 years.
If you seek knowledge and effective 'do-it-yourself' remedial techniques to reduce pain in the lower back, especially the hips, this class is for you.
Note: Pain initially serves us well as an alert, which lets us know something is out of balance.

Taum Sayers and Muscle Management® Class Policies.
Course content and development:
Course content is primarily influenced by Taum's apprenticing with Lauren Berry which began in 1978 and later as an assistant teacher in his classes. Taum continues to interact and co-teach with other certified Berry Method® Practitioners/Teachers and health care professionals.
Informational resources include materials regarding the Berry Method® and other relevant published works.
For example, Myofascial Pain and Dysfunction - The Trigger Point Manual, by Janet Travell, and the published works of Dr. Rene Cailliet, my one-time personal Physician.
God Bless you Dr. Cailliet????
Class presentations are revised as student feedback warrants and knowledge evolves. At the end of each class, students complete a class evaluation form to evaluate and revise the class offerings. This evaluation process has been constructive in keeping the classes current and worthwhile for future students.
Sole instructor for these courses is to be Taum Sayers.
Taum is a certified Berry Method® Teacher and Practitioner.
Course flyers are produced on a computer and made available via postings at massage schools, on www.musclemanagement.com in the class schedule section, via email, regular mail, Facebook, and by request. Flyers include information regarding Taum Sayer's training and experience. For email advertising, I have a free email announcement list by subscription.
Each promotion includes a reference to Taum Sayers Certifications.
