You will learn how to effectively incorporate this work into your existing techniques to enhance your results and reduce client pain quickly and easily.
- Further application of effective MFR techniques including cross-hand stretches, dural tube release, transverse fascial plane releases, arm and leg pulls psoas releases and scar tissue work.
- How you can effectively integrate these techniques into existing clinical remedial work to get quicker results.
- Skills that will enhance your existing clinical work and allow you to work more effectively with common pain conditions, emotional trauma and systemic conditions that do not respond to traditional massage approaches.
Structural Integration is a unique way of working with the body, usually over a series of 10-12 sessions, to open and release patterns of strain that develop in the body’s myofascial web. Originally derived from Rolfing, the work has been developed and popularized by several leading international bodyworkers, adding new insights on how to realign and balance the structures of the body.
- A dynamic form of bodywork that involves deep tissue work with active movement.
- Body reading: recognizing and analyzing patterns of pain and strain on the body, including habitual compensation configurations.
- The difference between direct and indirect myofascial work and how to combine both within your practice.
- The importance of ‘listening touch’, palpatory sensitivity and body mechanics.
- New insights into the anatomy of the myofascial system.
- Bodywork techniques and “tools” you can take away and integrate immediately into your existing practice.
