Learn to see and correct the myofascial patterns of the body. By building on the BodyReading skills developed in ‘Anatomy Trains’ you will learn to interpret movement and postural patterns. We all want to have a 3-dimensional vision of the body and this workshop is the first step towards establishing those skills for your self.

We will teach you to reliably connect with the fascial tissues, the many ways in which you can mobilize them and, most importantly, the reasons why you would do it and when. Each of the techniques will be presented in the context of their structural and functional influences making this a unique workshop that will lead you to the deeper skills explored through the rest of the series.
New theory will be introduced based on the synthesis of Robert Schleip on how we can affect the fascia through stimulating different mechanoreceptors and we will draw from the approaches of many of the top researchers and practitioners from across the worlds of fascial manipulation and functional anatomy.

The FRSB series of workshops will give you the latest research information and put it in a useable context, making sure that we can be maximally effective in our application of fascial release. The world of myofascial anatomy is quickly expanding and we aim to keep you up to date if not ahead of the curve!concepts of ‘cylinders’ to the BodyReading and use it to look at the trunk in particular.
Objectives

  • Review of the AT lines in static posture and introduces more functional movement assessment.
  • Builds on the skills and knowledge of the first Anatomy Trains by developing Fascial Touch skills
  • Learn to utilise the power of the DASIE model
  • BodyReading areas in detail, making you ready to explore the body through the FRSB series
  • More movement analysis will be utilised to further aid the vision of the fascial layers gliding and the roles of the ‘locals’ and expresses’.
  • We will add the concepts of ‘cylinders’ to the BodyReading and use it to look at the trunk in particular
  • To give more familiarity to the use of Bend, Tilt, Shift, Rotate and how they relate to the body positioning along with developing Fascial Touch Skills.
  • To relate the BodyReading to Fascial Release principles of assisted and resisted releases, movement of planes of tissue, separation/differentiation of planes, relaxation of tension and using Schleip’s mechanoreceptor model to communicate different intents.
  • To relate global and local tensegrity – expresses vs locals – AT lines vs single muscles, and to understand the necessity of balancing locally as well as the overall posture.

This will relate to the forthcoming FRSB series of regional workshops that will follow the locals more closely.

Learning Environment:

  • Illustrated lecture
  • Open inquiry atmosphere; questions encouraged; high degree of vitality and humour
  • Participants will exchange palpation and practice BodyReading (visual assessment) on one another under supervised analysis of instructor and assistants.

Much more research will be referenced showing the roles of fascia in the body, making this an up to date and highly effective skill building workshop.

Learn about the myofascial tissue and its role in the body, see it in context and how it is interdependent with the other body systems. From there we begin to see how the body incorporates the Anatomy Train Lines to create easy and graceful movement – provided they are in some form of balance and harmony; restriction or weakness in one can have many knock effects.

The purpose of this workshop is to introduce you to the first four main lines –
Superficial Front and Back, Lateral and Spiral. For each of the lines we will teach you a range of movement assessments and learn the basics of Fascial Release Technique.

This is the first workshop to combine Anatomy Trains theory alongside structural and functional anatomy and analysis, blending together the concepts of tensegrity with elastic recoil for movement efficiency. We will address differential diagnosis to help identify for motor control or soft tissue restrictions and where they may be coming from.

This is an exciting and fun workshop delivered with clarity and with your practice in mind – you will have useful and usable skills by the end of the two days.
Objectives

  • Introduce the AT lines in static posture and introduces functional movement assessment.
  • Understand many of the roles of the fascial tissues in the body
  • Introduce Tom Myers’ unique style of BodyReading, letting you clearly see skeletal relationships using the vocabulary of Bend, Tilt, Shift, and Rotate.
  • To be able to see and understand the distal influences through the body – how does the shoulder relate to the opposite foot? – and why we need to assess the whole body if we are to make a lasting change
  • Learn to accurately palpate fascial areas through feeling different qualities of tissue
  • BodyReading areas in detail, making you ready to explore the body through the FRSB series
  • Movement analysis will be utilised to further aid the vision of the fascial layers gliding.
  • To relate global and local tensegrity – expresses versus locals – AT lines versus single muscles – and to understand the necessity of balancing locally as well as the overall posture.

This will relate to the forthcoming FRSB series of regional workshops that will follow the locals more closely.

CPD Workshops in Birmingham (UK) 2017

Simply Holistic Therapies is a small independent host located in Birmingham, West Midlands (UK), and has been working in partnership with key training providers such as Anatomy Trains and Willem Fourie of Wayforward since 2012. Co-ordinating and organising CPD (Continuing Professional Development) workshops with a focus on working with fascia/connective tissue.

Over the years I have been pleased to welcome many international participants, in addition to those from the UK.

CPD workshops are a great opportunity for qualified practitioners to further explore the world of fascia and myofascial connections. Enhancing your existing knowledge and skills by reviewing aspects of anatomy, physiology and pathology, conducting  detailed patient assessments/evaluations, plus learning new and effective hands-on treatment strategies, all adding a new dimension to your therapy practice.
