Conditions like sciatica, obturator neuralgia, & pelvic floor pain often have a neurofascial driver—a pattern of inflammation, neural tension, & protective spasm. In this class you will learn to assess & treat the nerves of the lower extremity & their fascial environment.
ONLINE - Embodied Anatomy: Mapmaking for Somatic Practitioners
Mapping the body is a crucial aspect of embodiment practice, whether that map is anatomical, affective, or symbolic. This class builds your cross-disciplinary tools in mapmaking, weaving in key insights from modern embryology, fascial anatomy, and somatic neuroscience.
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 in our movement and bodywork practice.
Unwinding is a deep mystery for the embodied practitioner. Why do humans (and other animals) intuitively go into spiral wave-link motion? Why does it sometimes bring relief from pain and static body image? This class is about the neuroscience and therapeutic uses of Unwinding.
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. Open to all manual therapists.
