In it, our founder David Morin demonstrates using the Beveled L-bar to go where your fingers can’t, effectively treating the Lamina Groove.
The beveled L-bar is one of three “thumb savers”, inspired by Dr. Raymond Nimmo, that are at the core of the techniques we teach that can extend your massage career by saving your thumbs, shoulders, and back.
A visionary in the 1930s, 40s, and 50s, Dr. Raymond Nimmo’s, unique emphasis on muscular aspects faced skepticism and ostracism from fellow chiropractors. Yet, his pioneering spirit prevailed as he sought to elucidate the intricate connections between muscles and the nervous system.
Dr. Nimmo’s concepts remain highly sophisticated and influential to this day. Numerous contemporary soft tissue and myofascial therapies find their roots, either directly or indirectly, in his profound discoveries, writings, and educational seminars.
He asserted that not only spinal joints but also the body’s soft tissues could trigger nervous system irritations. His neurological theories concerning trigger point formation and their integration into the nervous system remain foundational and are a cornerstone of the work we teach.
