The ConnectTherapy™ Series
Vancouver 2024/2025

Build your Clinical Expertise | ConnectTherapy™ & the Thoracic Ring Approach™


The ConnectTherapy Series is a 3 Part learning experience, taught by Dr. Linda-Joy (LJ) Lee. It provides in-depth hands-on and clinical reasoning skills in the Thoracic Ring Approach™ and ConnectTherapy™ models. These models illuminate the connections between all regions and systems of the body and integrate psychosocial features to treat the whole person by “Finding the Drivers” & the most relevant Influences for the person’s problem.

“I have already recommended it to quite a few colleagues. I feel as if I am learning “modern” physiotherapy. I don’t think there is another course out there that can teach you how to treat the whole person so effectively. They say you should go learn from the best, as they have already made all the mistakes and figured things out. We are so lucky as a profession that we have someone like LJ who is willing to share her knowledge and process so we can help as many people as possible!” – J.Browne, Saskatoon, S.K

Do you know how thoracic dysfunction can cause groin pain, pelvic girdle pain, neck pain or Achilles tendinopathy?
Do you know how to determine when “core stability” exercises will make low back pain worse and when they are the key to recovery?
Do you have a robust assessment algorithm to determine when you should treat a patient’s foot to resolve shoulder pain or when to treat their shoulder? 
Do you know the difference between sympathetic sensitization and central sensitization?
You will learn all this and MORE by the time you’ve finished taking The ConnectTherapy Series with LJ.

New Format

The course consists of 16 days of virtual and in-class learning, spread out over 3 parts. The new format, created in 2021, breaks each of the 3 Parts of the Series into a Virtual and In-Person course, giving you six learning opportunities with LJ & the Assisting Team. We have had nothing but positive reviews on this new format. 

In between Parts you will have access to a large online Resource library of videos and support for your learning process. For the 2022/23 ConnectTherapy Series, the confirmed dates are:

  • Part 1 – Virtual: 21-22 Sept, 2024 ; In-Person: 4-6 Oct, 2024
