The soul of man, with all the streams of pure living water, seems to dwell in the fascia of his body.”

— A.T. Still, the founder of Osteopathy

For massage therapists and other somatic practitioners, muscles and fascia are our medium – just as pigments are for the painter.  We are honored to be holding this unique workshop with two veterans who have worked most of their lives with muscles and fascia.

In the morning:

  • Lecture and demonstration by Howard Miller, the Produce and Meat Supervisor at Wheatsville Food Coop.
  • Mr. Miller will talk and show how bones, muscles and connective tissues are organized.
  • See and understand anatomy from a new perspective
  • Open up new dimensions in your work through understanding living bodies better.

In the afternoon:

  • Veteran Advanced Rolfer and teacher, Ritchie Mintz will talk about fascia, how it divides the body into segments yet connects everything.
  • Lecture, demo and hands-on practice, on how to understand, visualize and more effectively work with the musculo-skeletal system including the all-important element connecting and articulating everything – the body’s fascia.
  • Learn more about how to optimize your bodywork’s effect on fascia and the whole health of the person through a deeper understanding and quality of touch.
