Functional Fascia Webinar Series for Manual and Movement Therapists
The second webinar in this series will take place on Tuesday 7th April 2020 and will be a session on Superficial Fascia and Adipose Tissue. As therapists, we learn a lot about muscles, joints, bones and so forth. We are attached to the idea that we affecting and influencing deeper layers of the body with our work and create approaches and techniques based around this understanding. Yet the more superficial layers, the ones we actually touch, are often ignored and are poorly understood. In this Webinar, Julian will show slides and videos from dissections he has performed over the years, and discuss the forgotten interface that is the tissue we touch.
This second session will cost just £5, in order to make this important material as accessible as possible.
Please contact us if you are in any hardship and would like to be considered for a gifted place.
Webinar Two – Superficial Fascia and Adipose Tissue- 7th April 2020 8pm £5
Between the skin and the deep fascia lies the mysterious world that is often dismissed as ‘just fat.’ This layer is regularly misrepresented in the world of classical anatomy and is cut away and discarded in order to show the deeper layers. Larger donors for dissections will generally be turned away, meaning that generations of medical students and anatomist will rarely, if ever see this tissue in bulk in the course of their studies.
The Psoas: In search of the mythical core
What muscular and fascial structures might make up the idea of the core and how have we become obsessed with the psoas as being a key part of this system? In this webinar we will aim to develop a different view of the psoas, its function and how we as therapists can influence it without trying to touch it.
The muscles of the spine: Thoracolumbar fascia, erector spinae and the deep structures of the Sacroiliac
So much of manual therapy involves working on the back. The muscular layers are surrounded by differentiated fascial structures that join up at some significant areas of the body. In this workshop we will look at both the intrinsic and extrinsic muscles of the back, how they connect inwards, outwards, above and below. We will aim to build a co-ordinated understanding of how the spine and posture is supported and moved by these structures and how manual therapy might influence them.
The fascia and anatomy of the lower limb, hamstrings, knees, extrinsic muscles of the pelvis
In this session we will examine the structures of the lower limb and how they blend in to the areas of the pelvis and lower back. The focus on this webinar is to try and understand load and force distribution as it relates to this area and build a three dimensional understanding of how muscle and fascia are blended in and around the inominate bone and into the lower back. The gluteus maximus and how it connects and becomes part of the hamstring group, will be explored and treatment and assessment approaches will be discussed.
