One and Two Day Classes

Two Day Classes, Nottingham
For Integrated Allied Health Professionals

These shorter courses are hands on dissection classes aimed at those working in the fields of hands on therapeutic treatment such as physiotherapists, chiropractors, osteopaths, sports and massage therapists, Bowen therapists and so forth. Please see terms and conditions for more detail

Practitioners from other fields of allied health care may be considered for certain classes. Please contact us to discuss this.

All delegates will be required to provide a brief CV and professional reference and to sign a non disclosure contract and waiver form as a condition of attendance.

No photography is permitted.

The Nottingham courses work on partly dissected cadavers. ADDITIONAL NOTE. From February 2017 we will be using a Surgical Soft embalming technique for our classes as well.  For more detail on the difference between embalmed and unembalmed cadavers, please click here.

The donor material we will be using comes from the National Repository, an initiative set up to provide surgeons with material to practice techniques that will enhance their skills. Most of the donors used in our classes are donations that, for various reasons, might not be suitable for surgical courses and might otherwise not be accepted.

For further information on body donation, please visit the HTA website www.hta.gov.uk or The National Repository Centre.

We will be working on the partial areas of the donated cadavers for all these classes.  This makes the classes more cost efficient than the full five day classes, hence the cost.

ALL functional fascia classes are hands on dissection opportunities, where attendees are fully engaged with the dissection process under expert guidance and tuition.  We do not use prosected, heavily embalmed specimens, but examine the structures in situ with all of the surrounding  tissues intact. This is the only class of its kind anywhere in the world.

You will be led gently in to the process and guided  carefully through each of the stages of dissection.  All materials will be provided.

Please contact us for further information or to apply for a place on any of these courses. Conditions Apply

 

11th October Foot Dissection for Podiatrists Only. £180

A one day dissection class of the foot and ankle on fresh material.   To book on this course, please email jill.cresswell@nhs.net

 

9th & 10th October Viscera and their fascia.  £350

A tour through the visceral tissues in the abdomen and thorax, including heart and lungs, stomach, intestinal tissue and organs of the abdomen.  We will look at how these organs are arranged and relate to each other and study the diaphragm as the common denominator for them all.

In addition we will address common variations and presentations and look at what tissues we can palpate in the living human.  This is a must for all visceral manipulators and those interested in the enormous variation that this area presents.

 

5th & 6th December  Anatomy and Fascia of the Lower Limb.  £350 

Hips, knees, lower leg and ankles.  Looking at the connected nature of the leg and how common injuries and presentations might appear.

We will examine and dissect  the knee and hip  joints and look at the structures that rise from the ankle over the knee to create function, movement and potential pain in and around the knee.
It is possible and indeed quite probable, that we will also be faced with hips and or knees where surgery has taken place and if this is the case, we will be able to examine the scarring that takes place in this kind of surgery.

We will discuss current threapeutic interventions and commonly presenting injuries in sport as well as every day life.
