Carrie Taylor – Taylor Fascial Fundamentals: Level 1 & Myofascial Assessment & Treatment of the Lumbrosacral-Hip Complex: Level 1
May 11, 2019 @ 10:00 am - May 12, 2019 @ 6:00 pm$250
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 be 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 and the website!
Day 2: Myofascial Assessment & Treatment of the Lumbrosacral-Hip Complex: Level 1
This workshop will provide therapists with a new approach to effectively treating & preventing Lumbrosacral-Hip Complex pain. Therapists will review myofascial assessment by discussing intake information, as well as using observation, movement, palpation, neurological assessment, referral pain and special tests to translate a patient’s clinical info into an effective treatment plan. The majority of time is spent in hands-on practice of techniques learned for direct and indirect treatment of the lumbar spine, ribcage, pelvis, lower and upper extremities, as they all relate to back and hip pain. Supine and prone lower and upper extremity stretch protocols are shown, as well as how to apply proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation if necessary. In addition, very specific lumbar/trunk, hip/thigh, and ilial/ischial release techniques will be highlighted.
