About the Workshop:
Structural Bodywork Fundamentals is an introductory workshop aimed at the therapist who wants to learn how to include their clients in the therapeutic process. This style of bodywork views the client as an active participant and has the overarching goals of improving client awareness and increasing available options for movement.
You will walk away from this course not only with a handful of useful techniques but the thought process behind them and the critical thinking necessary to apply them effectively. A few of the topics we will cover:
- Client history
- Static and dynamic movement assessments
- Direct myofascial techniques incorporating movement and breath
- Test / retest of assessments
- Movement and the client’s home program
The skills gained in this workshop will augment your existing skills and provide you with tools to more effectively engage and empower your clients to take an active role in their physical health both in session and at home.
