Module 8: Dancing with the Neuromyofascial Web
The evolution of the human as a bi-pedal being, is one of continuous adjustments and readjustments to the forces exerted upon it. The fascia is a multifaceted network that has had a vital role throughout this process as it envelopes and permeates every muscle, bone, organ, vessel and nerve in the body. It is like a three dimensional body stocking, a web consisting primarily of elastin and collagen fibers embedded in a gel-like ground substance. This design allows it to distribute force in a highly co-ordinated and efficient manner, often over relatively large distances and across multiple joints and muscle groups.
The fascia is not only responsible for our mobility, stability and function, it also serves as a conduit for interplay between the body and the mind. This harmonizing role of fascia of bridging the mechanical with the emotional as well as the anatomical with the psychological makes it an incredibly important subject of study.
Understand the anatomy and physiology of the neuromyofascial web
Recognize the interplay between the nervous system, muscles, and fascia
Develop skills for assessing neuromyofascial tension and dysfunction
Learn several modalities to release and rehabilitate the neuromyofascia
Understand the relationship between emotional states and neuromyofascial tension
Cover topics such as: structural and functional roles, the trajectory of force in the system, biomechanics of movement, force and accommodation, myofascial trains, fascial elasticity and plasticity and their importance for lasting change, the role of hydration in fascial responsiveness
And so much more.
This is a 3 day, 27 hour comprehensive workshop providing participants with both theoretical knowledge and practical skills to assess, understand, and treat complexities within this interconnected system. A detailed manual is included.
