Course Description:
Many people face joint replacements these days. On occasion, by reducing stressors on the joint and creating more space, symptoms can be relieved and a replacement may become unnecessary. Other times, myofascial work greatly facilitates the process by clearing fascial planes of adhesions and restoring lines of movement. Myofascial work helps your client with tissue and sensory reintegration in both pre- and post- surgical situations. Class emphasizes the hands-on work and observational skills involved in supporting joint health.

Course Objectives:
  • Review of Myofascial principles and skills
  • Fascia anatomy and physiology
  • Structural Bodywork approaches
