Course Description:

In VM4, participants will take an expanded look at the functional biomechanics of the thoracic cavity. You'll also explore the relationship between the hard frame and soft frame with its countless articulations for respiration, circulatory requirements and upper body movement patterns. The course includes lecture, demonstration and hands-on practical experience for each technique presented


Course Highlights:

  • Explore visceral fascia of the throat and thoracic cavity.

  • Review the anatomy, biomechanics and function of the thoracic organs.

  • Study the biomechanics of the cervical, thoracic, rib cage and shoulder girdle complex.

  • Learn techniques to release the soft tissue components of the thoracic inlet and hyoid apparatus.

  • Practice listening techniques within the thoracic activity.

  • Understand practical integration of the thoracic cavity organs.

  • Integration of the thoracic organs with the complex ligament systems of that body region.

  • Discover techniques for differentiating between somatic and visceral causes for thoracic and spinal problems.

  • Special Focus on Pleura, Lungs, Pericardium, Heart, Mediastinum, Thyroid, Trachea, Oesophagus, Sternum, Rib Cage and Thoracic Plexuses.
