Project Description

In this series we explore the theory of working with the internal organs and their fascial envelopes.  Referencing the teachings of JP Barral & other Osteopathic therapists as well as our own experience of Fascial Release and it’s relationship to the viscera we will explore the organs & their relationship to the musculoskeletal well being.   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) co-instructed by Heather Gittens & Natale Rao.

Visceral Connections: A Fascial Approach Level II
October 29-30, 2021
Friday-Saturday 9:30am-5:30pm
14 CEC’s as per CMTBC

The intention of this course is to further one’s understanding of fascial relationships in regard to the viscera developed in level one.  Anatomy will again be thoroughly studied, palpation guided, and primary musculo-visceral relationships explored with movement & fascial loads.  As manual therapists, it is imperative that we understand how our fascial anatomy within the musculoskeletal system is affected by the mobility of all other structures, including the viscera.

Pre-Requisite:  Visceral Connections: A Fascial Approach – Level 1.
