Brisbane MFR: Thoracic and Lumbar Spines, Ribs, Respiration July 29 & 30

Myofascial Release: Ribs, Respiration & Spine
Myofascial Release Level II
Contact Hours: 16

MFR 2aThis class enables participants to respond more precisely and efficiently to soft tissue and joint restrictions throughout the thoracic and lumbar spines. New assessment and palpation skills will be introduced. "Butt grippers", "chest grippers" and "back grippers" will be identified and the techniques will be tailored to produce the best outcomes for each of those patterns. The respiratory function and the mobility of the ribcage will be addressed with both direct and functional techniques.Participants will leave with a significant increase in their ability to treat two of the most common client complaints, stiffness/pain in the thoracic spine and lumbo-pelvic pain.

The class focuses on learning via extensive student exchange

Students will:

  • Expand their ability to make deep and long lasting interventions to localized (segmental) spinal stiffness
  • Develop precise skills for releasing restrictions in the breathing & the ribs
  • Understand basic spinal mechanics and apply this understanding with low force corrections to segmental stiffness
