Presented by Julie Hammond

This workshop is heavy on anatomy and manual techniques and includes experiential and client exercise for self release. This workshop will cover in depth anatomy of each diaphragm and advanced manual techniques to influence the position, relationship and balance in and between the diaphragms.

The relationship is between the five diaphragms is very important, as problems in one diaphragm will impact the others. For example, you cannot treat pelvic pain and dysfunction without looking at arch balance and rib cage position, as well as breathing patterns.

Workshop objectives:

  • Learn in depth anatomy of each of the 5 diaphragms
  • Gain a clear understanding of the pelvic floor musculature and ligaments
  • Learn advanced techniques for each diaphragm
  • Understand the relationship between diaphragms
  • Learn postural assessment
  • Learn experiential exercises to feel the connections between the diaphragms
  • How to put it all together

This workshop is recommended for experienced manual therapists or movement professionals with a good interest in anatomy. This workshop will give you a firm understanding of the anatomy of each diaphragm, postural assessment, manual techniques, experiential exercises, and the links between the structures. Understanding how a problem in one area can clearly be coming from elsewhere. If we do not look at the balance of all these structures locally and globally, we are missing an important piece of the jigsaw for our clients’ long term health.
