This Continuing Education class is open to Certified Rolfers and practitioners of Structural Integration who have completed an IASI Recognized SI Program.
Students will be taught advanced structural integration theory, body reading, and normal and client-specific structural and functional body mechanics. Students will exchange with supervision manual interventions, client-specific body analysis, and body reading using palpation and visual skills. Students will reliably identify the anatomy of the pelvic girdle, legs, and feet. Students will reliably identify the functional range and coordination of the lower body and its effect from the foot through the lower leg and thigh into the pelvis and sacrum.
Students will determine the relationship of the lower body to the upper body. Students will leave class with a refined knowledge of the coordination involving joint mechanics, ligaments, and the myofascial layers with specific skills for client specific intervention.
