This 5-day workshop in Montana examines the relationship of neural-fascial restriction in the shoulder and pelvic girdles to structural imbalances and myofascial and movement patterns. When the body has nerve fascia that is restricted and fails to glide, the entire system becomes pre-occupied. Reducing this "pre-occupation" is necessary for reducing pain and restoring optimal function. Through the blending of touch and cuing, strategies will be explored that evoke and invite awareness and inform integrative movement.
We will explore through lecture, palpation, hands-on exchange and embodiment:
Assessments for myofascial, neural fascial, joint, and movement restriction.
How impaired nerve mobility and associated signals to the brain influence movement of fascia, joints and expression of core stability.
Learn new approaches to tissue and joint mobilization, and re-patterning movement.
Develop palpatory accuracy to assess and address peripheral nerve restriction from cutaneous layers through tunnels to muscular and septum pathways for lasting change, from local restriction to global function.
Integrative strategies to apply to your structural integration sessions and home lessons for clients and practitioner self-care
