Upper limb nerve entrapment is seen on a daily basis, yet most interventions give only temporary relief. Learn to systematically treat fascial restrictions, bony compressions, & neural tensions that underlie TOS, CTS, & related syndromes.
Conditions like sciatica, obturator neuralgia, & pelvic floor pain often have a neurofascial driver—a pattern of inflammation, neural tension, & protective spasm.
Practitioners who can contact the diaphragm with clarity have a chance to improve breath, vocalization, & core movement patterns.
Headaches are complex behaviors of the trigeminal system that rise into consciousness from many sources. To navigate the head’s nerves with clarity, to calm the acute pain, and to shift the trigeminal system toward healthier patterns -- these are the aims of this class.
Think of all the jaw pain that goes untreated or is met with catastrophic theories. This class focuses on treating the mandibular nerve and related tissues — the pterygoids, cranial base, and TMJ capsule.
Nerve palpation should be a basic skill for any practitioner working with pain and movement limitation. The evidence is compelling that irritated nerves contribute to protective behavior in both muscular and immune systems.
Sometimes a person’s shoulder will experience a worsening cycle of pain, guarding and inflammatory fibrosis. You will learn a hands-on, mindful approach that dramatically improves your ability to help — and not to hurt — people...
The moving spine is an array of mini-brains, doing their best to integrate skeletal, myofascial, and neurological constraints. We can learn to converse with these segments, teach them new behaviors, and recruit them more artfully.
The foot in action is a deft marriage of biomechanics and sensory feedback. When our feet encounter pain, neuropathy, or movement limitation, can we discover what aspects of the foot’s function are involved?
This class is about the breakthrough moments in embodiment. We will weave together insights from modern embryology, fascial anatomy, and somatic neuroscience.
This class gives movement nerds and health practitioners a vivid sense of embryonic development, with the hope of inspiring new approaches & a deeper practical knowledge of the moving body.
Mapping the body is a crucial aspect of embodiment practice. This class builds your cross-disciplinary tools in mapmaking, weaving in key insights from modern embryology, fascial anatomy, and somatic neuroscience.
Join anatomist and bodyworker Michael Hamm LMP CCST in 5 experiential classes focused on human architecture, movement, and expression.
Tour of the body-as-instrument. Learn what architecture makes us capable of resonance, poise, and presence. Reduce your pain and injury. Develop true embodiment in your daily music-making.
Unwinding can be a deep mystery for the embodied practitioner. This class is about the neuroscience and therapeutic uses of Unwinding.
The evidence is clear: Massage Therapy is helpful for many widespread health conditions. But which ones, and how does it work? Practitioners who are grounded in the latest science are equipped to be more effective in the treatment room and more honest in their advertising.
Can the methods of Craniosacral be taught without making anti-scientific claims? Can we hone our direct palpatory experience and also ask critical questions? Find out in this fun and profound tour of science, mindset, and introductory methods.
How does surgical recovery change your manual therapy approach?
What questions do you ask, and what’s your therapeutic intent? This new class is a hands-on strategic primer for any manual therapist who works with people after surgery.
