Visceral Fascial Release + Functional BioMechanics + Energetic Concepts
approved for 21 NCBTMB CEs
2019 Dates TBD
2020 at the World Massage Festival
When organs have been traumatized from physical trauma, infections, surgeries and emotional trauma, they often become weak, partially immobilized and fail to do their jobs optimally. Many therapies that do not work directly to release the organs will fall short in helping to restore the organs and client to optimal function and health. When an organ is not working optimally, the entire body suffers; other organs, systems and meridians are asked to ‘pick up the slack’ which may cause an overall energy drain and keep the body from being able to restore homeostasis. This course provides a comprehensive introduction to visceral (organ) fascial release work for use in clinical settings with clients using the theory and techniques associated with functional biomechanics and Structural Integration combined with informational/energy medicine fundamentals.
Anatomy and location of the major organs
How organs become restricted
Understanding the difference between the Yin and Yang organs
Addressing the peritoneum, mesentery and omentum.
Embodying the natural movement patterns of each organ, particularly during breathing and movement, through The Franklin Method® approach
Symptoms that arise from organ restrictions
Referred pain patterns that are the result of organ restriction
How these restrictions in the viscera affect overall structure and posture, as well as the function of the muscles and fascia of the body
Techniques to release each individual organ and restore it to optimal health
Chronic pathological consciousness and emotions that can arise from poor organ movement and expression.
What to Expect
This class will give you a deep understanding and experience of the organs. You'll explore organ health, how organs affect the nervous system, structure, and function of the body, and pathological emotions and consciousness associated with the organs. We also take time to understand, embody, and experience the movement of each organ using dynamic imagery and functional motion utilizing the Franklin Method® taught by Damian McCann. This new understanding will give you the ability to facilitate powerful shifts on all levels through releasing organ restrictions and optimizing organ function.
We limit the class size to ensure that everyone gets individual attention. Hands on practice and experience are a huge component of the course, and you can expect to gain valuable skill through practice time as well as powerful work from your classmates. Expect to leave with a new body!
