This Bodywork Series will create the opportunity for students to see the body from a relationship­-based perspective. Students will explore the anatomy holistically, assess how it is organized, and make choices about how to re­organize clients’ fascia. The overall goal is to help clients create better alignment and reduce pain and discomfort.

There will be a major focus on exploring gross anatomy and how the body’s layers relate to one another, including the skin, the fascia, muscles, tendons and bones.

In the Postural Assessment portion of the course, we will explore Tom Myers’ assessment tool: Body Reading. Using simple terminology–bend, shift, tilt and rotate–we will uncover the hidden relationships of the body. By seeing postural patterns, we set the stage for bringing the body into alignment. This will give therapists tools for developing a strategy for relieving pain and discomfort.

In the Structural Integration (bodywork) portion of the course, students will learn how to contact the fascia and feel what is happening to this fabric beneath the skin. They will explore a series of techniques that will help them to work to create effective change. There will be a strong focus on body mechanics, enabling students to work smarter instead of harder.

The course may be taken in two formats: Introduction only (3 classes, 9 hours) or the full series (50 hours). Click on PayPal button to register for the Introduction. If you decide to register for the full series, payment arrangements will be made individually.
