Fans of the Hips

The hip and pelvis combine to transfer the forces from two legs into the one spine and therefore has a hugely complex role to fulfill in gait. Differences between the hips force changes down the legs or up into the spine. Achieving balance here can be essential for lasting results in therapy for any area – it’s the keystone of human architecture.   Get specific with sensitivity and see the logic of the pelvis through organizing the 20 muscles around the hip into three interacting fans.

Begin your journey with:  Anatomy Trains in Structure & Function ( March2-5, 2017 )

Note: This course is a prerequisite for taking the Fascial Release for Structural Balance Series (see below). If you have attended an Anatomy Trains for Manual Therapists workshop in the past, you can attend the 2nd two days of this workshop at half tuition to learn the new material.

Continue your journey with:

The FRSB (Fascial Release for Structural Balance) Series. These regional intensives combine global postural assessment with movement and manual techniques for efficient and long-lasting results.  Each of the 6 FRSB classes is based on consistent functional movement concepts, applied to everyday movement and our new understanding of myofascial efficiency and whole body response. Important research findings are integrated into the presentations, along with cutting-edge applications that can be used for clients on your next day in clinic.

Designed for the busy therapist, the FRSB workshops are most easily absorbed in the order outlined below but you can do them in any order as time permits.

      1. Arches and the Legs – 3 days
      2. Fans of the Hip – 2 ½ days
      3. Abdomen, Chest and Breath – 2 ½ days
      4. Tensegrity Spine – 2 ½ days
      5. Shoulders & Arms – 2 ½ days
      6. Head, Neck & Jaw – 2 days
