Course Description:

During a trauma, collisional forces can impact the whole organism. Forces can be focused on certain weak points of the body, bone tissue attachments and intra-osseous fibers, pre-existing tissue fixations and high-density organs. This can create pain and dysfunction that can occur either immediately after the trauma or years later.

The body comprises a set of heterogeneous elements, both liquid and solid, which do not offer the same resistance to shocks, sometimes making the source of symptoms difficult to ascertain. For instance, very often the collisional forces that affect the aortic arch can create left upper thoracic pain.

Symptoms can range from simple joint pain to headaches, dizziness, tinnitus, loss of balance, and digestive and cardiovascular disorders. Physical trauma can change a person's life, and manual therapy can be an effective way to bring about relief for a person.  This course addresses these patterns with specific neural, vascular and visceral techniques in an integrated approach.

This course will explain how physical trauma can affect the body. We will describe typical pattern in the skull and throughout the body that he has encountered during his more than 40 years of experience as an osteopath. You will learn how to address these patterns with specific neural, vascular, and visceral techniques in an integrated approach. It includes lecture, demonstration, and hands-on practice for each technique presented.

Course Highlights:


  • Demonstrate evaluation and treatment techniques.

  • Demonstrate evaluation skills using listening and inhibition techniques.

  • Demonstrate functional listening and how to use it

  • Demonstrate treatment in 3D induction with compression-decompression with multiple levers

  • Explain and demonstrate 3D anatomy of the body, by palpation and functional test: smelling, tasting, seeing

  • Explain and demonstrate effective treatment plans based on the evaluation findings.
