Fresh Tissue Dissection Online

Cost: $60 – $310

Join us online with Todd Garcia at the Laboratories for Anatomical Enlightenment in Boulder, Colorado for this exciting three day course where we will be learning about the body from the inside out!

Todd will be using non preserved untreated cadavers as a way to learn how the body and the connective tissue ‘really is’.

Educational Experience:

-Highest quality tissue, never frozen and no embalming chemicals, as close to the living state as possible.

-Todd Garcia, Dissection Master will dissect and lecture simultaneously while Kelly and other teachers from around the world will moderate.

Course Outline:

This online series of dissections will reveal the beauty and function of human anatomy.

In this 6 session series,  Todd will dissect tissues in their pure form, no embalming chemicals, completely natural and accurate.

During this 6 session course, one session will lead to the next creating an understanding and appreciation of the body as a whole.  

Each online session is 2 hours in length

Time:  9:00-11:00am  and 12:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.MDT – USA

**Please Note that the class time is Mountain Daylight Time**

No recording, downloading, reproducing or screen shots of any kind of this event.

This course will be held live and a recording of each session will be available for 48 hours.

Event closing and gratitude.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Understand and observe the biotensegrity of the connective tissue system.
  2. Understand the role of fascial integrity and how adherence issues contribute to common pathologies.
  3. Understand the connectivity between structures and how the scalpel creates ‘the lie’.
  4. Understand how our light touch and manual therapy techniques may affect the global system through conductivity.
  5. Understand the body with greater depth, clarity, and three dimensionality to better inform your clinical practice.
