Project Description

These courses are designed solely for those who have completed or are far enough into a current BFI series to participate.  Each course is intended to essentially be a review of previously learned material.  With that said, you may find yourself re-learning a forgotten technique or perhaps learning a new approach all together.  Nuance in palpation, finesse with your hands & application of techniques will be increased as we are sure to have a great base knowledge coming in to each course. Each course will be an integrative approach based on the understanding of mobility and motility of any given tissue.

Cranial Membranes

Friday May 27th, 2022
9:30am – 5:30pm

– 7 credits as per CMTBC
Instructor: Heather Gittens RMT

Oh how important are the cranial membranes!!!  This day will be dedicated to the Falx Cerebri, Falx Cerebelli, Tentorium Cerebelli & the Dural tube.  Each respond to a load either directly or indirectly and have such a profound affect on all of their contiguous structures as well as distant couplings or relationships.  When a cranial membrane becomes restricted it affects our entire being in it’s primary functions, alignment and overall well being.  This is sure to be an insightful day.

Occiput: Sphenoid: Ethmoid

Saturday May 28th, 2022
9:30am – 5:30pm

– 7 credits as per CMTBC
Instructor: Heather Gittens RMT

Understanding the sphenobasilar relationship is paramount in the cranium & it’s mobility, motility & affect on function of the cranio-sacral system.  There is a direct connection from the base of the skull (occiput) through to the orbit and face in this triad of bones & their articulations.  All too often we focus on the sphenobasilar component and do not carry it through to the ethmoid which can make all the difference in our goal of long term results.  Anatomy, energetics & easy to incorporate techniques will fill our day.

Cecum-Bladder-Sigmoid
Friday June 10, 2022
9:30am – 5:30pm

– 7 credits with CMTBC

Let’s dive into these pelvic organs and see how they truly impact the mobility & stability of the pelvis!  In this one day course, the BFI (IFT) alumni can jump right into the mobility of these structures but also see how they impact the physiological function of our elimination.

Hip Joint & Associated Structures (non-visceral)
TBA
9:30am – 5:30pm

– 7 credits with CMTBC

The pelvis can feel overwhelming and understanding it in 3 dimensions difficult at the best of times!  This course aims to take the stress away from trying to figure it all out & “where to start”!!!  We will study anatomy & techniques for osseous, ligamentous & joint structures primarily.
