Advanced Assessment, Strategy, and Techniques for the Shoulders, Arms, and Secondary Curves
Presented by Tom Myers

This 4-day intensive is third of the 4 modules (followed by practicum) required for ATSI Advanced certification. This course will cover advanced techniques for optimal positioning of the shoulders and arms, and their relationship to the neck and low back, aimed at functional use of the shoulders in relation to the spine.

In this course, we briefly review the library of shoulder techniques and approaches you learned in basic training, moving on to the deeper muscles and ligaments that define shoulder positioning and limit sturdy shoulder use. This includes more detail in the rotator cuff and sub-acromial problems, as well as more detailed work in the lower arms for hand and wrist problems.

This course is open to ATSI graduates, IASI members, or graduates of a recognized program in Structural Integration only.

This is Module 3 of 4 modules in the ATSI Advanced Series. These are based on the 4-series that Tom has developed since learning them from Ida Rolf in 1978. Each of the modules covers one session, with supervised clinical practice in the final module.

• Session 1 (and Module 1) covers pelvis and legs strategies, ligaments and deep structures
• Session 2 covers the breath, rib cage positioning, and deep work with the sternum, mediastinum, and individual ribs.
• Session 3 is for the shoulders and arms, especially the many ligaments and deep structures of the shoulder assembly.
• Session 4 is a deeper exploration of the head, neck, and jaw, including the hyoid system and tongue, the ligaments of the neck, and structural / cranial work.

These sessions are designed to go deeper to the ‘inner bag’ compared the initial 12-series that tours the entire ‘outer bag’ – the myofascial meridians. These sessions focus on techniques for the Anatomy Trains ‘stations’ – myotendinous attachments – and release of the ligamentous bed for each section. In these modules you can also review techniques from the original series.

The first four modules can be taken in any order, but these 4 modules / sessions must be completed before the 5th module – session-based clinical practice – can be taken to achieve ‘Advanced ATSI Practitioner’ status. We will offer new modules when our schedule permits and where there is sufficient interest.
