- Course Details
Take your postural assessment skills to the next level!
Come one, come all! This skill-building workshop is for Movement Professionals and Manual Therapists – trainers, massage therapists, rehabilitation specialists and yoga / Pilates teachers.
Can you see what the skeleton is doing inside the standing or moving body? This workshop builds your skills in seeing and palpating skeletal relationships – the key to effective whole-body training and treatment strategies.
Each person is a complex set of interactions based on their history, injury, training, feelings, and attitude. Learning to see these relationships accurately is essential in unwinding postural patterns that are causing pain, dysfunction and inhibiting optimal movement.
Practice seeing specific tilts, rotations, and shifts that get hooked into our unconscious patterns and rob us of energy every day. These skills can be immediately applied to your clients tomorrow.
Once you know the skeletal pattern, we review the Anatomy Trains Myofascial Meridians, long chains of myofascial force transmission responsible for holding the skeletal patterns in place.
The real problem is often quite far away from the site of pain or skeletal imbalance. Learn to see inside the body for more efficient and long-lasting treatments.
This workshop includes:
- How myofascia, joints, and nerves co-create lasting postural patterns
- Treatment differentiation for areas of concentric and eccentric tension
- Basic functional assessments to see what moves and what does not
- Easy charting of your findings
Tom Myers’ Anatomy Trains workshops are fast-moving and engaging, designed for working professionals with no time to waste. Bring your sense of humour and a notebook.
“The art of seeing into someone is an old and intuitive one” states Tom Myers, author of BodyReading: Visual Assessment and the Anatomy Trains. This Master Class offers an effective tool to map soft tissue patterns seen in bends, tilts, shifts, and rotations, and once the assessment is completed, how to create a strategy to shape the change either through manual therapy or movement. Bodyreading is useful for any bodywork practitioner using manual therapy—including physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, myofascial and trigger point therapists, and massage therapists. Bodyreading is also a great tool or for movement professionals – teachers of yoga, pilates, GYROTONIC®, and personal trainers – providing the information needed to deliver effective treatments and programs to create long-lasting, systemic change in clients’ shape and structure.
