Course Overview

The MasseryPT LLC physical therapy lab courses are usually 3-days long domestically, and 4-days long internationally.  There are 5 primary courses and Mary Massery also presents lectures as requested at large conferences and specialty forums around the globe.  Her primary courses include:

Mary’s signature course is now entitled: “LINKED: Breathing & Postural Control

PLEASE NOTE: starting mid-2021, we have changed the name from “if you can’t breathe, you can’t function” (aka Mary Massery’s Breathing Course) to “LINKED: Breathing & Postural Control”:

> LINKED Part-1 is the first day of the 3-day course with 8-hours of content.  It can be attended in-person in one day, or online in two half-days.

> LINKED Part-2 consists of the two lab days with 13-hours of content.  These two days can be attended in-person immediately following Part-1, in which case it is the three-day (21-hour) breathing course you may remember.  Part-2 can also be scheduled/attended weeks or months after having attended LINKED Part-1.

> The 3-day course hours (Parts 1 & 2) have increased to 21.0 from 20.5.
