W.) Abdominal Palpation & Treatment: Upper Abdomen (Seattle June 2, 2018)


Product Description

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

About this Class: In this module, we explore the upper abdominal organs including the stomach, liver, gall bladder, and duodenum. We will focus on clinical applications to common upper abdominal conditions including gastritis/upper abdominal pain, acid reflux/GERD, and gall bladder stasis/congestion. This work also assists with detoxification of the liver, indigestion, and belly bloating. Many of the behavioral, metabolic, and soft tissue factors that contribute to these conditions will also be explored.

About Abdominal Palpation & Treatment Classes: These modules are designed to introduce the core and abdominal viscera to manual therapists. The series 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.
