THE NEUROFASCIAL FOOT
about the course
Try this — before a walk or run, take a few minutes to massage just one of your feet. Then see how your body moves and feels. You are likely to feel a difference between the sides, not just in the foot, but in all the places under that foot’s influence. Which turns out to be many places.
A combination of structural behavior and neurofascial self-regulation causes the foot to be a dynamic bridge between body and ground. How does the brain integrate foot sensation with walking/running? How does the nervous system regular inflammation and blood flow in the foot?
What should be done when these systems functions poorly?
That’s what this hands-on class covers: The nerves and neural behavior of the foot and how these interact with its mechanics. We will also learn some useful principles for assessment & treatment of the foot.
