Time: 7:30am-5:00pm (Saturday), 8:30am-5:00pm (Sunday) 

Throughout this course, you will learn how to assess for head, neck, and jaw imbalances and explore the relationships that the muscles of the upper body and pelvis region have with each other and their role in imbalances of the head, neck, and jaw.  You will also learn how to address the fascial tension of the anterior and posterior upper body, as well as the head, neck, and jaw.  By the end of the course you will know how to put an effective treatment plan together to treat the head, neck, jaw region, and surrounding tissue.  Throughout the weekend, therapists will get hands on practice on treating the head, neck, and jaw region through techniques and stretches to isolate specific muscles and their matching fascia.

May 1-3, 2020- Anatomy Trains: Arches and Legs
Time: 8:15am-5:15pm (Friday), 830am-5pm (Saturday and Sunday)

Anatomy Trains in Structure & Function courses give you new techniques to transform structure by reaching deeper issues in the tissues. Anatomy Trains in Structure & Function is suitable for Manual Therapists, it also serves as the prerequisite to the ATSI Certification Program.

The Structural Essential series is a set of intensive soft-tissue technique courses divided into functional regions. Combining movement and manual techniques for the most efficient and long-lasting results, and using the latest research on the interaction between skeleton, muscles, joints, and fascial proprioceptors, this series of workshops will take you to a new level in therapy.  Designed with the busy manual therapist in mind, each Structural Essentials event gives you a new understanding of the relevant area. The content will outline how the structural and functional anatomy relates to many common issues as well as to the rest of the body. Based on many new and established approaches this series will give you the skills in palpation, BodyReading and functional analysis needed for the modern multidisciplinary therapist.

Arches and the Legs – Underpinning all of our structure is the foot’s interaction with the ground, imbalances here clearly have consequences further up the body. Effective arch balance can be essential for easy and graceful walking, pelvic stability, low back efficiency and even head and neck support. The feet and legs are literally the foundation for the rest of our structure and this workshop will analyze the bones of the feet and how they conspire to help or hinder the arches. We will look at the forces coming from the leg muscles and create strategies to help maintain better mechanics by dealing with myofascial restrictions and imbalances.

The Knee and Thigh – A complicated hinge in the middle of two long levers is perhaps not the best of designs – but this “elbow designed by committee” is an excellent work of engineering. The knee joint mediates forces coming down from the hip and up from the foot and still allows a wide range of movement in all but the frontal plane.
