This 6 day course is split into two, 3 day modules spaced several months apart. Covering IMT2-4, it’s designed to quickly progress therapists from good to excellent practitioners. On the first module, days 1 & 2 cover a mechanico-adaptive approach to understand the inter-relationship the spine has with the pelvis and lower extremities. Therapist learn quick scan tests to detect dysfunction in the musculoskeletal system and 45 classic counterstrain treatment techniques for the foot and ankle, knee, pelvis, sacrum, coccyx, spine, thoracic cage and clavicle. Day 3 shifts to a myofascial chain model with additional quick scan tests to identify myofascial dysfunction and an additional 35 classic counterstrain treatment techniques to alter myofascial tone imbalances to create lasting change to local and remote pain.
On the second module, day 1 covers a viscero-fascial approach with quick scan tests to identify dysfunction in the body’s “central tendon” and how this influences the myofascial system. Therapists will learn 25 fascial counterstrain treatment techniques to alter visceral dysfunction and it’s associated musculoskeletal pain. Days 2 & 3 covers quick scan tests to identify dysfunction in the neurocranium, TMJ and dural fascia. With 40 classic counterstrain, dural and sutural manipulative techniques, therapists will leave the module with a powerful approach to treat craniosacral dysfunction creating headaches and pain elsewhere in the body as a result of the fascial and neurological connections.
