Course Description: Integrative Anatomy features specific reciprocal areas of the body that integrate and impact the physical, functional, and energetic/emotional levels of our bodies. These reciprocals are an incredibly simple yet effective tool that can balance structure, posture, function, emotions, meridians, central nervous system and proprioceptive nervous system.
Our body is designed with 32 reciprocal pairs that support balance, harmony, and peak physical performance when they are optimized and balanced. These pairs also provide a lens through which we can understand how the proprioceptive nervous system works to guide the function (and structure) of the body.
Through Integrative Anatomy, you will develop a more integrative lens through which to assess and address your clients that incorporates functional, structural, and energetic/informational perspectives of the body. You will then learn what the reciprocal points are and how to utilize them, giving you a new way to prepare your clients for body work, enhance your work on specific structural and functional issues, as well as integrate your sessions after you are finished.

Course Topics:

1. Explore how the three levels of the body – structural, functional, and informational – can be balanced and impacted to improve your therapeutic practice.
2. Learn 32 reciprocal pairs that help restore balance and function in the body on all three levels.
3. Learn to integrate the technique and approach into your practice to enhance the efficiency and efficacy of your sessions.
4. Provide your clients with an effective self-care tool for overall body balance and function.
5. Understand the fascial network of the body as a means of communication as well as function, support, and emotional expression.
6. See how the fascial anatomy works through the three planes of motion.
7. Learn to work with fascia from a functional perspective rather than primarily structural. The fascial anatomy does not change but the way you assess where you should work will be more accurate and specific.
8. Learn not just another technique to do but how to actually think about your clients’ acute or chronic/persistent issues through an integrative lens that considers how the structure, function, and energetic levels work together.
9. Gain confidence in integrating multiple modalities in your session.
