Q.) Abdominal Palpation & Treatment: Pelvis -- Both Classes (Seattle June 8-9, 2019)


Product Description

Instructor: Marty Ryan, LMT; NCBTMB #451818-11

Use this option to register for Marty Ryan's two "Abdominal Palpation & Treatment: Pelvis" classes at a discounted price.

About Abdominal Palpation & Treatment Classes: These are independent modules, designed to introduce the core and abdominal viscera to manual therapists. These classes will explore how the abdomen and pelvis are built, and how to easily and fluently make contact with each of the tissue layers from the belly wall to the spine and from the respiratory diaphragm to the pelvic bowl and floor. From there, clinical treatment applications are discussed and practiced.

For many manual therapists, the pelvic and abdominal viscera are new frontiers and often under examined in a typical therapeutic session. Likewise, our clients often have no idea that manual therapy can be utilized here. This series is an excellent way to begin the journey of palpatory fluency and effective treatment for some of the most common clinical conditions that our clients present.  Each module is a stand alone course with no prerequisites.

Day 1 -- Abdominal Palpation & Treatment: Pelvis I (Seattle June 8, 2019):
This module covers the palpation of all relevant bony landmarks and skeletal ligaments for the bony pelvis, coccyx, and pelvic floor. These include the inguinal ligament, sacrotuberous and sacrospinous ligaments, and the obuturator musculature. With this information we will discuss and treat coccyx and pelvic floor pain. We will also palpate and treat the kidney/urinary bladder system and all related visceral ligaments.

Day 2 -- Abdominal Palpation & Treatment: Pelvis II (Seattle June 9, 2019):
This module covers palpation and treatment of the male and female reproductive systems. For the female pelvis, we will discuss and create treatment protocols for dysmenorrhea, fertility optimization, and pelvic organ prolapse. For the male pelvis we discuss and treat the prostate gland for BPH and urinary incontinence. We will also discuss what clinical conditions are indicated to ask for help from acupuncture, naturopathic medicine, and physical therapy. (Note: All palpation and treatment in this class is external only).
