Introduction to Tensegrity Medicine™
While not required for taking the course, it would be helpful for the student to be familiar with the concept of Anatomy Trains, as outlined by Thomas Myers. I would recommend reading Anatomy Trains for reference either before or after the class. A familiarity with general anatomical origin and insertion of muscles, as well as actions will also deepen a student’s understanding of the course content.
This two day assessment workshop will give you the tools and objective measures to provide a more targeted and effective treatment for your clients. By learning to objectively test and document limitations, you will then be able to choose the most appropriate procedures, helping to avoid over-treatment, and staying true to the “less is more” philosophy. With these assessment techniques, you will be able to educate your clients on the source of their discomfort, communicate client progress to other providers, and document outcomes for further research.
