3 Courses to Master the MYK System

Improve your practice as you earn CEUs and learn alongside Dr. Uriarte, creator of the MyoKinesthetic System. Dr. Uriarte designs each course as a dynamic environment with hands-on learning and in-the-moment discussions. Gain insights, skills and approaches to dramatically advance your practice. Videos and resources available on course completion will help you absorb these manual therapy techniques.

How it works

  • The MYK System is a unique neurological treatment done with soft tissue work.
  • The System’s power lies in the muscles we combine from the nerve root, not in how we treat.
  • Posture is the outward expression of the nervous system.
  • By balancing posture, we balance the nervous system to increase function and eliminate pain.
  • Full treatments take 3-15 minutes, or 3-5 minutes when combined with an adjustment.

I just wanted to share my first success story from your workshop this weekend. I treated one of my athletes with chronic shin splints and she just completed her first double track workout without any pain!

Taking the upper body course has made my practice much better, and I have a better understanding of the neurological aspect of muscular work. I’ve had (players) tell me how much better they have responded to this treatment after past therapy sessions that have not succeeded. I can’t wait to take the lower body course!

I just left my post-polio patient. I did an L5 treatment. She got up and began to walk and said ‘Oh my God!’ I said ‘what? … what?’ There is no low back pain, but more importantly her stability and balance has improved! This is a long-time private patient. We are both thrilled with the results!
