Taums classes are for educational purposes and are not a substitute for professional medical advice.
These are powerfully efficient and effective techniques.
Precision is more important than pressure.
With that in mind, I highly recommend not applying deep tissue-type pressure, which can create pain.
Always begin with light, gentle pressure.
This class is about reducing pain, not creating.
You know best your own body and its limits.
Respect those limits.

The online class includes practicing and performing manual therapy techniques and protocols that include:
  • Active movements.
  • Applying finger and hand pressure.
  • Positioning your ankle upon your knee to practice the techniques. 

You practice on yourself, and then once you feel comfortable with the techniques, you can add them to your tactile toolbox and take them to work.

This class is all about reducing pain, not increasing it.

You know best your own body and its limits. 

Respect those limits.
