Professor Laurie Hartman at the Northern Institute of Massage

The Northern Institute of Massage is celebrating its 90th Anniversary this year.

One of the ways they are marking this is by hosting a seminar with Professor Laurie Hartman, who is the most eminent Osteopath of his generation, and a former student of ‘The Northern’.

Laurie Hartman Northern Institute of MassageLaurie Hartman is Associate Professor of Osteopathic Technique at the British School of Osteopathy, and has been teaching osteopathic and manipulative technique and manual therapy since 1964. He is in great demand internationally and has taught and lectured in 17 different countries with osteopaths, physiotherapists, medical manipulative groups and massage therapists. His book ‘Handbook of Osteopathic Technique’ is one of the definitive textbooks on the subject.

Professor Hartman never forgot his roots at the Northern Institute and developed a series of techniques based on rhythmic traction-compression movements that he learned at the Northern Institute all those years ago: he named this system ‘Harmonics’.

Harmonic techniques are especially effective for:

  • chronic low back pain
  • hip conditions including osteo-arthritis
  • knees that have lost ease and range of movement
  • conditions of the shoulder, arm and hand and the foot and ankle.

He will be demonstrating his harmonic techniques at the special one-day CPD workshop at The Northern Institute of Massage on Saturday 13th September.  Call The Northern Institute of Massage on 0161 797 1800 for more details on this and other courses.

Charlotte and David of The Muscle Clinic in Plymouth carried out their massage training at NIM and can highly recommend it to anyone considering a career in massage.

As well as The Muscle Clinic, we run a digital design studio called YonYonson and are proud to have created Professor Hartman’s website.
