This class details important myofascial relationships between the arms, shoulder girdle, neck and thorax and elucidates lesser-known joint biomechanics that carry significant therapeutic weight. Visual, functional and palpatory assessment of structural dynamics underpin intelligent strategies for resolving pain and restoring function.

Innovative, effective techniques are demonstrated and explained within the context of the structural dynamics being taught. Students are given ample instructor-supervised practice time.
