Neurovascular Release Part 1 – Head, Neck, and Upper Thorax
11 spots left
- Course Details
Neurovascular release techniques for the nerves and arteries of the neck, chest, and “roots of the arms,” including brachial plexus, dura, vagus and phrenic nerves, internal thoracic artery, vertebral and carotid arteries, and arteries to shoulder muscles and lungs. Learn a neurovascular approach to helping your client or patient who has a forward head posture and an injury history that has left lingering movement restrictions. Helpful for neck stiffness and restriction related to old whiplash injuries and problems that haven’t resolved with other manual therapy techniques. With judicious use, this can be extremely helpful in addressing more recent cases of whiplash too.
Max capacity: 12 students
Throughout the five-part NVR course series, we will look at common patterns of injury and disfunction that arise from trauma to the neural, dural, and vascular systems, and we will relate the typical structural and functional patterns that people with past injuries often have, their individual history, and our observations to the Anatomy Trains model for assessing structural balance.
This workshop is intended for manual therapists. It is recommended to have three years experience in clinical massage, or a degree in physiotherapy, chiropractic, acupuncture, or naturopathy with emphasis on manual therapy. It is also recommended but not required to have taken an Anatomy Trains weekend course for fascial anatomy (for context and for BodyReading terminology and practice.) Structural Integrators may attend, but it is recommended that SI practitioners take the series specifically for SI instead.
Note: Two Zoom (video call) meetings after the course finishes are included in the price of tuition for a total of 3 additional
hours of instruction.
Kirstin Schumaker is a Board Certified Structural Integrator, Certified ATSI practitioner, and Certified Teacher of Anatomy Trains Structural Integration. A manual practitioner for 20 years, she has been studying nerves since 2006, and she added arteries to her special interest list in 2010. Now all the myofascial work she practices and teaches is nuanced by her understanding of the neurovasculature.
