Designed with the busy therapist in mind, these workshops can be taken in any order. The unique circular skill-building which is inherent in the system means that you do not have to fit your diary around ours.
Each workshop can stand on its own to give you new understanding of each area and how the structural and functional anatomy relates to many common issues. A range of back-up notes will be given with each along with learning assignments both prior and post-workshop. Where possible the information is backed up with current research and critical thinking is encouraged throughout. This unique package is aimed to build confidence and give you fresh insights into the workings of the body’s myofascial system.
Finally, when you have attended each on the series, you can learn how to put all of the skills together to create a comprehensive and effective system. Based on many new and established approaches we believe the Structural Essentials will give you the skills in palpation, BodyReading and functional analysis needed for the modern multidisciplinary therapist.
Underpinning all of our structure is the foot’s interaction with the ground, imbalances here clearly have consequences further up the body.
The hip and pelvis combine to transfer the forces from two legs and into the one spine and therefore has a hugely complex role to fulfil in the body.
This course focuses on ribcage and its relationship with the pelvis to provide a secure anchoring point for the neck and shoulders and thoracic spine mechanics.
This course examines the spine as a tensegrity truss – how the bones float within the myofascial balance.
Requiring a complex equation of stabilityversus mobility to balance correctly on the rib cage, the shoulders can easily be used to compensate for thoracic and cervical deviations or be the cause for them.
The neck is a remarkable feat of biomechanical engineering, giving a combination of wide range of movement but maintaining a structural strength.
