This stand alone class or Part 2 of the series, offers a focus on neurovisceral fascias. As nerves transition from one fascial layer or cavity to the next, there are potential sites of restriction that may lead to tension to the neural roots and dural tube. We will examine the neural and visceral work in a layered approach working from superficial, cutaneous nerves to the nerves of the muscles in the shoulder and pelvis, then to the hard frame and finally to the contents or visceral components. We will weave in the relevance for SI work and “the series” and for other practitioners the layered approach offers ideas for staging this in a series of sessions with a client or a single session plan.

Through lecture, palpation and hands-on exchange, we will explore:

• Assessments for joints, fascia, viscera of abdomen and thorax, dural and peripheral restrictions and possible postural displays that result from these compensations.

• Refine integrative strategies for thoracic outlet, neck and cranial base, thorax, ribs, diaphragm, spinal, trans-pelvic and SI issues.

• We will address fascias of the bladder, pelvic floor, root of mesentery, colon flexures, kidneys, diaphragm (related to liver/stomach), pericardium, lung suspensory ligaments,sternum/mediastinum/esophagus and details of the wraps of nerves from spinal segments to front body. Neural structures related to the plexis: sacral, lumbar and brachial will be reviewed and those related to the spine and rib articulations. It is a fun mix of neural/visceral fascial work with some neck details to top it off.
