Instructor: Marty Ryan, LMT; NCBTMB #451818-11
About this Class: In this module, we explore the fascial architecture of the abdomen including the belly wall myofascia, visceral ligaments and other suspensory structures, and the attachments of the entire peritoneum with respect to the muscular diaphragms and bony skeleton. This information is critical for accurate palpation and treatment of the entire abdomen. With palpatory fluency regarding the fascial architecture of the belly, you can skillfully and easily move between specific layers, organs, and metabolic systems to more effectively serve your clients.
About Abdominal Palpation & Treatment Classes: These modules are designed to introduce the core and abdominal viscera to manual therapists. The series will explore how the abdomen and pelvis are built, and how to easily and fluently make contact with each of the tissue layers from the belly wall to the spine and from the respiratory diaphragm to the pelvic bowl and floor. From there, clinical treatment applications are discussed and practiced.
For many manual therapists, the pelvic and abdominal viscera are new frontiers and often under examined in a typical therapeutic session. Likewise, our clients often have no idea that manual therapy can be utilized here. This series is an excellent way to begin the journey of palpatory fluency and effective treatment for some of the most common clinical conditions that our clients present.
Each module is a stand alone course with no prerequisites.
