Thompson Technique Seminars

Thompson Technique Seminars

Dr. Minardi has revolutionized this classic technique by creating an intensive, scientific and practical three weekend certification course like no one else on the planet has ever done. Over fifty years ago, the Thompson Technique was first unveiled by Dr. J. Clay Thompson. This three part series will encompass all elements of the original technique and expand the teaching where Clay could not, due to the science limitations of his era. Several new aspects have been incorporated into this classic technique by Dr. Minardi, filling in any gaps that may have existed. This innovative Thompson Technique Program explains each step in depth, using the latest research in the fields of biomechanics and neurology for greater understanding. The Seminar Series prides itself with intensive hands-on participation, ensuring the doctor will be able to confidently use the material in an office setting immediately. Those familiar with Thompson will learn more than they ever thought possible. Those new to the technique will be taken from step one and accelerated at a comfortable pace to learn all material presented.

Our material is presented over three weekends in a workshop format. A unique interactive workbook is utilized. The first weekend (Module I) covers the basics of applied neurology and the essentials of the application of the analysis and adjustments used in Thompson Terminal Point. Module II presents the more advanced and intricate aspects of the technique. Module III focuses on subluxations in the pediatric patient and extremities. There is a written and practical exam held on the Sunday of the Module III weekend. Please visit our seminar website  for more details.
