Carrie Taylor – Fascial Fundamentals -The Taylor Technique and Myofascial Assessment & Treatment of the Abdomen, Ribcage, and Pelvis

Course Description

Day 1: Taylor Fascial Fundamentals: Level 1

This workshop will give participants an introduction to the “Taylor Technique” style of myofascial assessment & treatment, and how to incorporate this work into their current practice.

Specifically, strain/counterstrain, using limbs as levers, pin & drag, skin rolling, pick up & roll are all shown in several areas of the body, focusing on palpation of superficial and deep layers of fascia, and differentiating between the two.
Learning about the elements of fascia and how to dialogue on this topic with prospective and current clients, will help participants incorporate this work into their current massage practice, while managing client expectations.

Therapists will become proficient at using these techniques everywhere in the body, and the focused hands-on practice in palpation, is a skill that will de demonstrated throughout the seminar, in addition to body mechanics.
This class is the platform for the other 9 topics in the level 1 series, and gives the healthcare practitioner a firm foundation in applying palpative skill effectively.

DVDS and downloads are available for all ten topics in this myofascial certification series, as well as ten level 2 DVDS and ten level 3 DVDS now available at www.taylortechniquesinc.com. Level 1 textbook is available in downloadable and hard copy formats on amazon/kindle!

Day 2: Abdomen, Rib cage, and Pelvis

This course will remove any discomfort felt by therapists when working on the Abdomen, Ribcage & Pelvis, by combining in depth assessment approaches with effective myofascial release techniques.
Therapists will spend time doing direct techniques, such as release of the abdominal/peritoneal fascia, and iliac/inguinal fascia, as well as indirect techniques, such as release of groin/pubic fascias.
Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) will be employed, along with passive stretching with traction (limb unwinding), to perform the indirect techniques.
Once learned, PNF and limb unwinding can be applied anywhere in the body.
Patients will experience improved digestion from the abdominal work, improved breathing from the rib cage/diaphragm work, and better flexibility in the back and hips from the pelvic work.
Decreased back, shoulder, and neck pain can be expected from all of the modalities used.
