- Teach basic assessment and palpation skills for the abdominal viscera/organs that get shifted or affected in pregnancy, and women's health issues such as Endometriosis/Adenomyosis.
- Learn the locations of the pelvic organs when palpated viscerally through the abdomen and how to influence them.
- Differentiate layers of tissue from the skin to organs; like the broad ligaments of the uterus and ovaries.
- Build on palpation and assessment skills to treat; lower back and pelvic pain, the release of c-section scars, diastasis (improve the gap in 1-2 sessions), diaphragm for breathing issues, bladder urgency and infrequency, period pains, and pelvic floor (yes, we can influence the pelvic floor by touching it directly)
- How do the organs influence each other?
- How are they connected to our skeleton and how does this affect a pelvic issue?
- Why do visceral organs become restricted or refer pain?
- Any restriction, fixation or adhesion to another structure implies structural impairment of that organ and tissues.
What skills will you learn?:
- Learn what lies between the rectus abdominis and psoas major muscles and how the viscera are suspended.
- Able to palpate and assess intraperitoneal and subperitoneal organs and fascia.
- Develop basic skills to palpate and assess abdominal viscera in order to help treat back pain/pelvic pain/acid reflux and post-abdominal surgery.
- Assess diaphragm excursion.
- Learn how to treat the postnatal woman or women’s health issue with a unique 360-degree approach.
- Understand the implications of intraabdominal pressure, adhesion, or restrictions from above in the abdominal cavity on the pelvic organs.
- Assessment and treatment of DRA and C-Section scars and the relevance to visceral mobility
What techniques will you learn?:
- Broad Ligaments of the Uterus
- Urachus (bladder ligament)
- Pubovesicle Ligament
- Suspensory Ligaments of the Ovaries
- And much more!
Once you have done this course you will no longer be able to ignore the abdominal area when carrying out an assessment!
This is a very practical course; be willing to work with each other’s tummies and explore what you find!
Plus, you will receive a beautiful informative manual covering everything you have learned which will support your training after the course!
We look forward to seeing you!
