Carrie Taylor – Myofascial Assessment & Treatment – Abdomen, Ribcage, & Pelvis
Masks must be worn at all times while in the building
We are following the governor’s mandate and the guideline established by the GA Board of Massage Therapy
Day 1: Abdomen, Ribcage, & 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 ribcage/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.
Day 2: Full body Myofascial Treatment
This workshop combines many of the techniques learned in other Taylor myofascial workshops, to form a more generalized full body “protocol”.
A full sequence of treatment ideas is shown starting in prone, with discussion on what to do if you find areas of concern/complaint that need more specific techniques applied (yet still be able to fit everything into one session).
The supine portion of the session starts on the lower body, and ends at the head & neck, once again addressing possible areas where some clients might need more specific work, but keeping the therapist focused on achieving a full body result in the time allotted.
