In this course, I share how my training in osteopathy has guided my approach to treating fascia. One of the most important components of the course is palpation. The idea is to allow the participants to feel fascia in order to be able to work with fascia. Fascia is constantly seeking a global balance in the body. Thus, if we can learn where it might be limited in that ability we can help the body as a whole. This follows the osteopathic principle that the body is a functional unit (all serve one). The main focus of this course is introducing the listening or sensorial mode of palpation as well as the phases of tissue response to this mode of palpation (balance point, still point, release, return to normal). This is applied to the musculoskeletal system.
This course is part of a 3 part series. In this 3 course series I share with the participants the principles of palpation I have learned through my training and practice in osteopathy. While there's more to osteopathy than the quality of our palpation; palpation is one of the cornerstones of this manual practice. Each course introduces a new layer of palpation and continues to build on the previous layer.
