Myofascial Release: Cervical-Thoracic
Live Seminar (16 CE hours) NCBTMB#451789-11, FL#50-14426, LAP0136
Frequently fascial adhesions do not stay local and stretch to invade distant structures of the body. The purpose of this class is to teach the therapist intuitive palpatory skills and to address the root of the dysfunction rather than chasing and patching the areas of pain. The Cervical-Thoracic region is a complex area with many health and structural implications. All structures must be operating smoothly to maintain health and comfort. Myofascial Release is a gentle long term solution to pain and postural distortions arising from any region of the body. This gentle therapy never forces the system and teaches the body to heal itself both physically and psychologically.
- Each participant will experience their own fascial system and its intense impact on the person physically and psychologically.
- The therapist will be able to discuss the theoretical approaches and inner mechanisms of Myofascial components of the human body.
- The therapist will be able to perform multiple techniques to evaluate restrictions in the body.
- Each participant will perform releases to the anterior, posterior and lateral fascial lines.
- Each participant will perform releases for the superficial and deep fascial systems affecting the cervical-thoracic and abdominal regions as well as restore balance to the temporomandibular joint and shoulder girdles.
- The Therapist will be able to perform a manual scar release.
