Course Description:

The Fascial Release for Structural Balance (FRSB) workshops are a set of intensive soft-tissue technique courses, divided into functional regions. Each course thoroughly conveys 15 – 20 technique ‘templates’ designed for versatile application for the different patterns your clients bring to you.

The hip and pelvis combine to transfer the forces from two legs into the one spine, and therefore have a hugely complex role to fulfil in the body. Ida Rolf described the pelvis as ‘the joint that determines symmetry’ and it is easy to see why. Differences between the hips can affect down into the legs or up through the spine. Achieving balance here can be essential for long lasting results in any therapy. This course sheds light on the pelvis – the keystone of human architecture – by organising the 20 or so muscles of the pelvis into three fans. Get specific with sensitivity.


1 Seeing how the soft-tissue is arranged in an easy to understand pattern – the so-called ‘fans’ of the hip;
2 Using these fans to balance pelvic tilts and torsions
3 Learning how to work accurately, effectively and sensitively with the abductors around the ischial rams and deep lateral rotators, leading to the pelvic floor
4 The psoas complex and the many variations on ideas of how it does (or does not) affect pelvic, low back and hip patterns

Each Class Includes:

▪ Relevant anatomy for the area – short intensive and integrated presentations assemble the best figures from multiple sources, including brand new learning tools such as video of fascial dissections and palpation of the relevant structures to convey the information in an inspiring and understandable fashion
▪ BodyReading (visual assessment) – the common postural and movement implications – how to see and ‘read’ them in the intricacy of individual patterns
▪ Fascial Release Techniques – each technique is fully laid out for intent and ‘feel’ with plenty of time for practice, ensuring that you can apply these methods immediately in your practice
