This course is designed to enlighten attendees on Fascia- What it is, Why it is important to us, and How it affects our daily lives. Generally stated fascia is the connective tissue that holds us together, which also serves as a communication network for our physical and emotional body. The slightest kink, adhesion, or scar (physical or emotional) has major ramifications on the body’s ability to function optimally.
The lecture focuses on the physiological and psychological effects of scar tissue and adhesions, indications and contraindications of fascial release, and orthopedic and neurological considerations of fascial treatments.
During the workshop anatomical and physiological principles of fascial restrictions are examined while learning a detailed 8-step approach to manual release of fascial adhesions including: techniques for lengthening all fascial layers, and increasing lymphatic and venous circulation to the tissues. There will be hands-on practice with a variety of scar tissue. Personal experience is essential to understanding the effectiveness of this technique- be prepared to give as well as receive a treatment. This course will provide you with the knowledge to confidently assess and work with your clients’ issues.
