Abdominal Palpation & Treatment: Pelvis II with Marty Ryan

Instructor: Marty Ryan, LMT; NCBTMB #451818-11

About this Class: This module covers palpation and treatment of the male and female reproductive systems. For the female pelvis, we will discuss and create treatment protocols for dysmenorrhea, fertility optimization, and pelvic organ prolapse. For the male pelvis we discuss and treat the prostate gland for BPH and urinary incontinence. We will also discuss what clinical conditions are indicated to ask for help from acupuncture, naturopathic medicine, and physical therapy. (Note: All palpation and treatment in this class is external only).

About Abdominal Palpation & Treatment Classes: These are independent modules, 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.
