Second in our new series of regional technique video programs, ‘Opening the Breath’ takes you on a tour of the essential motions of breath in the rib cage, spine, shoulder, and neck – and how to enhance those motions for both the inhale and the exhale to achieve a full and easy breath – which will only assist in getting other benefits you seek for your clients. This program concentrates on manual therapy, but has plenty of information and application for the movement-based therapist as well.
Each technique is clearly explained and demonstrated, with variations included, for your easy application in whatever practice approach you take. The techniques are also put together into a ‘session’, so that you can apply the techniques with an easy flow for best results. 2 CEUs (NCBTMB).
This Video includes an anatomy overview of the three fascial cylinders in the neck. The program than details assessments and techniques for the outer muscles – SCM and trapezius – as well as the deeper erector spinae, the scalenes, anterior neck muscles, and a detailed tour of the sub-occipital complex and their relation to eye movements.
Come away from this program with renewed confidence and inspiration in dealing with neck rotations, head forward posture, neck retraction prompted by fear, and those ever-present ‘kinks’ in the neck – as well as the ability to ‘put it all together’ in a coherent session for your clients. 2 CEUs (NCBTMB).
