  • Review the anatomy and physiology of the vascular system, particularly how arteries dilate or diminish in diameter depending on the function of the body.
  • Understand how compression along vascular structures creates restriction patterns and pain throughout the body.
  • Learn to locate and release restrictions along the vascular structures using direct techniques on the arteries like compression, decompression and elongation, as well as indirect techniques using the limbs.
  • Explore manipulation of the soft tissues of the heart itself, aorta, subclavian artery, along with all the arteries connected with the visceral system.
  • Enhance your understanding of how increased blood circulation to an organ improves function of the viscera, and learn how to improve the blood      circulation to organs, directly and/or indirectly.
  • Learn treatment of the vaso-pressive system and the brain.
  • Discover the research done with doppler ultrasound to determine the best mobilizations of the arteries to improve local and general blood circulation.
  • Learn practical integration of vascular treatment into the therapeutic session.


  • Focused Listening on the brain, nerves, vascular system and articulation.
  • Deepen "listening skills" (palpation procedure) that help guide you to the proper manipulation site.
  • Learn to interpret the information the body is offering regarding imbalances and dysfunctions.
  • Explore through listening how to determine which body structures are involved, and identify the best approach for treatment results.
  • Practice listening to the body systems, as they respond to your treatments.
  • Learn to identify the correct approach and amount of force when working on different parts of the body and with different clients.
