$100 or $150 when you purchase the We’ve got your back: Stability and Freedom through Neurovascular Release – Nov. 6th + 13th package. 

Part of the We’ve got your back: Stability and Freedom through Neurovascular Release series.

This webinar can stand alone or, if you took the November 6th webinar, you can refine the skills and understanding you gained while working on yourself, this time working on someone else’s spinal erectors, rib cage, and lateral hips. (One of your lucky family members can benefit from the live instruction if you keep them nearby while you are learning anatomy and then enlist them as your model during the technique instruction.)

Again, your client will experience greater freedom in spinal movement during left and right side-bending, along with less low back vulnerability and stiffness. The work we do for the pelvis and lateral hips will improve balance and coordination when standing on one leg and will help address pelvic torsion.

You will need to be able to work with your model lying supine and on their side, with several small couch pillows or bed pillows available for props. Working on a massage table will be the easiest, but you could improvised on the floor or kneeling next to a futon bed. You do want to choose a fairly firm surface, not a conventional bed.

No previous manual therapy training required for the work we are doing with spinal erectors—Kier will provide the anatomy and palpation instruction you need. More advanced palpation skills will be helpful for the work we are doing in the lateral hip.

In this class you will

  • Improve spinal movement in all three planes
  • Reduce protective holding or “splinting” associated with a chronically stiff back
  • Help your client find greater stability and control when balancing on one leg
  • Improve your client’s sense of safety and security if they feel vulnerable in the low back during spinal flexion and extension
  • Reduce compression in the lower thoracic and lumbar spine to allow the intervertebral discs to “fluff up” and regain some height
  • Improve psoas strength and psoas-piriformis balance
  • Help a client to sit more comfortably with an upright spine
  • Reduce the pain and protective response in a historically injured hip

You will need a client or volunteer bodywork model to get the most benefit from this class

Note: If you cannot attend this course live, each session will be recorded and the recording made available to all registrants for 45 days. 

To ensure a high quality student experience, registration for this class will CLOSE on Friday, November 12th, at 8 PM EDT.
