- The Business Case for Adding Soft Tissue Release Tools & Techniques
- Thu, 10 May 2018
Christine Binnendyk, LMT, brings more than 20 years of study and training in anatomy and movement to PCC CLIMB as the instructor of our course on Soft Tissue Release Tools. She is a sought after expert in addressing pain patterns caused by “soft tissue issues,” and is eager to share techniques to help people reduce pain and help wellness professionals expand their client services.
The Soft Tissue Release Certificate program at PCC teaches licensed massage therapists, Pilates and yoga teachers, somatic therapists, and other wellness professionals soft tissue release techniques at an in-depth level, allowing them to deliver their own Wellness Workshops.
The following Q&A with Christine offers a closer look:
- Mindfulness as a Practical Tool for Anxiety and Depression
- Thu, 19 Apr 2018
Mindfulness is the practice of being self-aware and truly present. While everyone has the ability to be “mindful,” it takes time and persistence to unlock the positive impact that mindfulness can have on mental health.
PCC’s Institute for Health Professionals has mental and behavioral health classes that include mindfulness as a tool, which can be extremely valuable and empowering when treating patients with anxiety and depression.

Many CLIMB programs help small businesses to expand opportunities and develop additional revenue streams. One of our latest workshops enables body and movement professionals to teach individuals and group classes the sports massage techniques of soft tissue release.
Soft tissue release techniques are safe and effective manual therapies designed to ease pain — for both you and your clients. Whether you are a massage therapist or athletic trainer, a yoga instructor or a nurse, you can use these techniques in your practice and even on yourself to treat a wide range of painful conditions.
