The Structural Essential series is a set of intensive soft-tissue technique courses divided into functional regions. Combining movement and manual techniques for the most efficient and long-lasting results, and using the latest research on the interaction between skeleton, muscles, joints, and fascial proprioceptors, this series of workshops will take you to a new level in therapy.

Designed with the busy manual therapist in mind, each Structural Essentials event gives you a new understanding of the relevant area. The content will outline how the structural and functional anatomy relates to many common issues as well as to the rest of the body. Based on many new and established approaches this series will give you the skills in palpation, BodyReading and functional analysis needed for the modern multidisciplinary therapist.

PreRequisite: Must have attended the Anatomy Trains in Structure & Function Workshop

  • Side bends
  • Rotations (and counter-rotations)
  • Guy-wires on both the front and the back of the spine, and
  • Balancing trunk spinal work into the cervical spine and sacrum
