Trainings for Bodywork Practitioners work with the principle that structure and function are interrelated. Structure is the physical matter we are made up of: our bones, ligaments, muscles, nerves, arteries, veins, lymphatic vessels and organ systems. Function reminds us that these structures are all interrelated and functionally interdependent on one another. Understanding the spine from a neuro-chemical perspective, we deepen understanding of the underlying structure-function interrelationship and develop skill in adjusting structure to correct functional challenges.
Each training develops your insight and expertise as a bodywork practitioner so you can work with clients more effectively, precisely, easily and enjoyably. You learn how to
- work with the A.T. Stills' principle of levers - a fundamental osteopathic skill needed to accurately assess and treat the body
- accurately assess spinal health, with a thorough understanding of the biomechanics of the spine
- identify dysfunction related to the physiologic range of motion of each section of spine
- accurately assess and treat the sacrum and pelvis
- integrate and correct health dysfunctions based on in-depth appreciation & knowledge of the spine
