Introduction to Tensegrity Medicine Light Touch Techniques

Come join us for this introductory course on the newest fascial techniques in manual therapy- Light touch therapies!  

The newest facial and nervous system research is revealing the power of light touch in manual therapy.  With science validating the relationship of pain to the tension and compression relationship of the peripheral nerves and the fascial network, we are beginning to understand why we don’t need to apply aggressive connective tissue interventions in order to make significant changes in tissue tension, pain symptoms, and functional movement.

Learn about the latest fascial research related to mechanotransduction, mechanoreceptor stimulation, the autonomic nervous system, and the fascial network.  Learn how to apply light touch manual therapies to targeted tissues that are based on sound anatomical and physiologic principles, as a way to affect global tissue tension and pain.

 

See how to affect neuromyofascial imbalances that contribute to common diagnosis and pain patterns in new and easy hands-on applications.

These innovative approaches include Bowen and Reciprocal Gliding, which can be performed as stand-alone whole body therapies or can be used in conjunction with traditional movement and manual therapies.   These procedures can be performed directly on skin or with the client fully clothed.  These innovative techniques are easy on the therapist and client and can be used in general rehabilitation, massage or wellness settings.  Some can also be self administered as part of a self care regime. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the latest research related to the fascial and nervous system.
  • Understand how light touch therapies can be more effective in releasing abnormal tissue tension patterns than traditional methods.
  • Understand how strength, range of motion, and function can be improved by treating the whole system with easy to learn and applied techniques.
