In this currently 2-part series, we explore the theory of working with the internal organs, their fascial envelopes and their relationships with other structure/function. Working with the organs is essentially part of the osteopathic approach to manual therapy. In our courses we draw on our own experience of working with fascia, understanding the visceral anatomy and the effects of a load or motility induction of an organ. We will explore the organs & their relationship to the musculoskeletal well being and how symptoms may present. For the manual therapist it is a vital portion of our understanding of functional movement, restrictions and how the visera are directly related to our symptomatic experience.
This course can be applied as a pre-requisite for the Biodynamic Fascial Integration Series (BFI) instructed by Heather Gittens RMT, Program Director.
