“Think globally act locally” is as apropos in bodywork as in politics. Myofascial Strategies are local, soft tissue interventions informed by an understanding of that body’s global structure. In this course, functional, visual, and palpatory assessments are demonstrated and practiced, and a framework of key relationships of body parts is provided. (eg: hip rotation to arch structure in the feet). Numerous, novel myofascial techniques are demonstrated and practiced, often with a client-active component. Beyond prone and supine, sidelying, and seated and methods are offered, with an eye to percolate new thinking as to how myofascial work can be applied and received. Additionally, various stretches and exercises, designed to augment the myofascial work, will be outlined for “homework” for the proactive client.

Massage tables are available on site; please bring your own sheets and lotion.

Richard Condon has been an LMT for 17 years and a certified Rolfer for 7. He has studied structural and visceral work, and taken a week-long cadaver dissection class. In addition to private practice Richard has worked for over 7 years with an Osteopathic doctor in Manhattan. Always intrigued by structural asymmetries, their causes, consequences and corrections, Richard approaches bodywork from a biomechanical perspective.
