A Neurofascial Approach to Structural Integration with Michael Polon – Australia
- Course Details
A Neurofascial Approach to SI – Advancing the Science & Practice of SI
This class is about advancing and deepening the science and practice of Structural Integration to help more clients in more ways. Central to the process of SI are goals like learning, growth, connection, optimization, and evolution. By taking an up-close and science-informed view of the neurofascial relationships, we can better see our work’s full potential and better realize these goals for ourselves, as well as for our clients.
Through lecture, conversation, and hands-on practice we will clarify many of the complex factors of how the neuro-fascial system drives things like posture, movement, pain and the lived experience of being you!
Things you are likely to learn include:
- A detailed view of how to apply current models of touch, posture, and movement science to strategizing your sessions.
- Hands-on, neuro-fascial techniques for releasing joint restrictions, movement fixations, postural imbalances and pain patterns
- Integrative approaches to manipulating both cutaneous and deep nerve structures to create long lasting resolution of common client complaints
- An expanded, evidence-based perspective on how to achieve the goals of the SI-series
- Up-to-date research and clinical perspectives of confusing topics like ‘dysfunctional’ movement, interoception, back pain, core stability, and more.
- The profound role of the nervous system in SI and why we shouldn’t ignore it!
About Michael Polon:
Michael’s first introduction to Rolfing came as a client, when seeking help with a series of sports injuries and improvement of moderate scoliosis. His interest in the body began early as a result of these ailments and he began his college years on track to become a physical therapist. After experiencing the power of Rolfing as a client in Boulder during his early twenties, Michael shifted gears and quickly enrolled at The Rolf Institute® in 1998. Immediately following his graduation in 1999, he was invited to re-enter the classroom as a teaching assistant and has been involved with teaching in Rolfing and Continuing Education classes ever since.
After almost 20 years of study, Michael still has the same beginner’s excitement when it comes to exploring the art, science, theory, and practice of Rolfing. Through consistent study and continuing education classes with Rolfers, as well as with Physical Therapists, Chiropractors, Psychotherapists, and Movement/Rehab experts, Michael learns more about what is possible with this work each year. His enthusiastic curiosity of how people (and their bodies behave) fuels his passion for understanding how anatomy, physiology, movement, posture, pain, and healing potential all come together with this work.
