An in-depth manual accompanies each Anatomy of Trauma© Module
In the Anatomy of Trauma workshops we choose to start with a focus on dynamic anatomy as there is no cell, no muscle, no tissue that is not driven by an innovating principle. The difference between the living and the dead is this animating/organising force. Thus we start with the physical, understanding that there is a body/mind/spirit continuum.
In trauma, this body/mind/spirit must be considered. The body is the receptacle of our total life experience and memories reside throughout. The nature of trauma is such that the psyche is always involved as the ‘event’ is ever present and, if not resolved, can and will express itself physically.
During the 36 hours we will discuss the following and learn the ‘hands on’ corrective techniques:
- The difference between injury and trauma.
- The biology of trauma.
- The Sutherland cranial chart in depth and corrections.
- Cranial and somatic dysfunction and corrections.
- Somatic visceral dysfunction and corrections.
- Traumatic distortions of the fascial lines and corrections.
- Understanding anatomical and directional forces
We will also learn to discern human cues using the five senses.
This is intense four day workshop is in a retreat setting. Due to the nature of the subject matter and in order to provide adequate individual attention, the class size is limited to twelve participants. It is designed with health care workers in mind yet it can also accommodate those with an intense desire to learn.
The course includes a detailed illustrated manual, an excellent reference toolbox for techniques and related anatomy
