The Iliopsoas Complex works to integrate movement and stabilization from the torso, through the two pelvic halves, and through to the hips. Issues with the Iliopsoas are commonly documented as the culprit for low back pain, hip restrictions, and postural dysfunction. Quite often, common trigger point patterns and fascial connections of the Iliopsoas can create dysfunctional breathing along with discomfort anywhere in the abdominopelvic region.

This hands-on, 4-hour class takes place on Thursday evening, 4/7. For complete information, visit www.amtactchapter.org/ct-conference

About the Instructor: Scott Raymond

Scott has been a licensed massage therapist and active volunteer for the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) since 1998.  He was an instructor of kinesiology at the Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy for 11 years, taught for The World Skin Project, a non profit organization that he co-founded with Annie Powell, and taught for many AMTA Chapters.

His practice is an eclectic blend of eastern and western styles of bodywork.  He has studied the work of Bob Pecora PTA, LMT, Bob King, Ralph Stevens, the Lotus Palm method of Thai-Yoga Bodywork, Cupping Therapy, Gua Sha, Embodyoga teacher training, and obtained his personal trainer certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine. 

​When he was diagnosed with Transverse Myelitis in June of 2017, he needed to move his practice into a facility that was handicap accessible, and close to home.  Not knowing what the future would hold, he knew that it was time to rekindle his passion for teaching, create classes, and host other quality continuing education providers.
