Fascial Release for Structural Balance Series: Head, Neck, & Jaw
- Course Details
Based on the recently released book of the same title, the Fascial Release for Structural Balance (FRSB) series is a short intensive course limited to specific anatomy and heavy on manual soft-tissue technique.
Each course focuses on 15 – 20 core ‘templates’ for technique, which can be applied in different ways for different patterns in your clients. We will teach you the relevant structural anatomy for the area and the common postural and movement implications around each of them. The short lectures utilize many new and previously unseen teaching resources to illustrate the information in a fun, exciting and, most importantly, understandable fashion.
The courses fully explain the intent and scope of each technique and will give you plenty of time to master it and experiment with the many possible variations. We will ensure that you can apply these very effective ideas and execute them in your treatments the following day.
The workshops can be taken in any order once you have first attended the Anatomy Trains and Anatomy Trains II workshops but we recommend them in the order they appear.Objectives
To teach functional and structural regional anatomy that will build into a full body picture of how body operates as both local and as a global tensegrity structure.
The main focus of the series will be to create a modern approach to Bodywork incorporating appropriate techniques according to the tissue type and the apparent dysfunction. The main emphasis will be with Fascial Release Techniques along with Structural and Functional Assessments, to ensure a modern, individual and accurate treatment plan is created.
Neck & Jaw
The neck is a remarkable feat of biomechanical engineering, giving a combination of wide range of movement but maintaining a structural strength. It is often seen as the last site of compensation as it corrects for any alteration from below allowing the eyes and ears to orient to the horizon. Patterns can of course work their way in the other direction and particularly from the jaw and its many possible patterns of movement and holding. This course will focus on key areas of the neck and jaw complex to allow you to build successful strategies to ease these potential problem areas alleviating the issues working in both directions and setting the body up for a longer lasting change.
a. The sub-occipital muscles
b. The laminar groove & deep cervical muscles
c. The muscular wires of the front of the neck – anterior scalenes & longus colli muscles
d. Intra-oral work for the hyoid complex, the tongue, and the floor of the mouth
e. The jaw muscles, TMJ, the palate & facial muscles
