Visceral Manipulation II: Head, Throat, and Chest Structures is a continuing education class for manual practitioners who want to improve their current skills in palpation and manual manipulation and expand their knowledge and understanding of the nasopharynx, larynx, and respiratory structures.
This class will focus on visceral mobility of organs, fascias, nerves, ligaments and capsules of nasopharynx, larynx, and respiratory visceral structures to allow for appropriate movement patterns. Restrictions in the nasopharynx, larynx, and respiratory structures can cause decreased mobility and musculoskeletal dysfunction to include pain, loss of function / neuromuscular co-ordination, and weakness in various biomechanical structures that interact with the head, throat, and chest viscera such as the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine, the jaw, the vestibular, ocular, and adaptive righting mechanisms, the inner ear (hyperacusis or tinnitus), and breathing, swallowing, chewing, and speaking. This class is concerned with the assessment and return to mobility of the nasopharynx, larynx, and respiratory viscera from a biomechanical, neurological, and neurohormonal standpoint and that interaction with other organs, the head, throat, and chest, and body as a whole including reflexes and adaptive patterns.
Visceral Mobilization II: Head, Throat and Chest Viscera -SEA, Oct 4-5th, 2019
Visceral Mobilization II: Head, Throat, and Chest Viscera (SEA) 2-Day course
Friday and Saturday, 9am to 6pm
October 4-5th, 2019
14961 NE 95th St, Redmond, WA 98052
pon course completion, the participant will be able to-
1) Identify, palpate and test the mobility of the head, throat, and chest due to visceral restriction to include joints, capsules / peritoneum, muscles, fascia, blood vessels, lymphatic tissue, and meso-attachments.
2) Ask appropriate patient history questions that take into account new, research-based understanding of upper body visceral function;
3) Demonstrate various treatment strategies such as Fascial Release, Counterstrain-positional release, Neurolymphatic and Neurovascular Techniques, and NeuroDynamic Reintegration© (NDR©).
4) Perform appropriate Global and Regional provocation tests for the pharynx, larynx, and respiratory viscera.
5) Apply a specific Home Exercise / Self-Treatment Program based on objectively assessed neuromuscular imbalance and somatic dysfunction
