What to expect:
The student will gain a good understanding of the viscera/organs within the abdominal cavity. Each will have an understanding of what each organ is for and how to treat it. Learn the inherent motion of each organ. We will also be learning how to treat the surrounding structures important to supporting the organs, whether ligamentous or fascial.

Treating the Spine

What to expect:
The student will learn anatomy of the spine, shape and importance. We will talk about nerves and the areas they affect. Most importantly the student will learn how to treat common rotations WITHOUT the use of any force. This very gentle approach works with all ages.

This is a significant addition to any practice whether Massage Therapist, Chiropractor or any manual therapist.
