In this two day class you’ll learn principles and skills taught in my Integrative Myofascial Series. Assessment and clinical reasoning skills help you determine where to treat, a skill that is vital to clinical efficiency and effectiveness. The treatment techniques I teach on this course and the Series are derived from my background in Structural Integration, Massage Therapy and Visceral Manipulation. You’ll leave with new techniques that you can apply immediately and a sample of a framework that will help you grow as a clinician.
” I love that everything we learn is immediately applicable to clinical practice.”

The healthy Shoulder Girdle facilitates a great variety of movement between the thorax, scapula, clavicle, and humerus. The sliding and elongation of myofascial tissues coupled with the bony architecture permit this broad range of motion. The very myofascial tissues that allow this great range of motion, however, can also cause dysfunction. There are many fascial planes and interacting structures in this area that can not only restrict movement but compromise vessels and generate pain. The underlying myofascial restriction can be at a distant site to the pain so understanding the fascial layer interactions and junction points is a useful addition for any clinician looking to restore function in the shoulder girdle.
- Learn screening tests to assess alignment and function of the shoulder girdle.
- Use clinical reasoning to quickly narrow down the best treatment approach.
- Understand the current state of connective tissue research, this is a missing piece for many clinician’s understanding of soft tissue.
- Learn techniques to treat ligaments, fascial interfaces, nerves and myofascial structures in the shoulder girdle.
