Kinnective Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation
Kay Pearce & Donna Strachan

In April we kick off with a fantastic CPD seminar getting to grips with the custom-made, meticulously designed Kinnective tool. Kinnective is instrument-assisted soft tissue manipulation that chiropractic clinicians have reported to may be useful in breaking down scar tissue, fascial restrictions and adhesions and may change muscle tone.

Presented by Kay Pearce, who has worked trackside at the European Veterans Athletics Championship and treated athletes at the British Masters Track and Field Championships, alongside Donna Strachan, co-designer and developer of Kinnective, who spends the majority of her time in private practice and on a consultancy basis for sports.
