RAPID Neurofascial Reset - Upper Body

Saskatoon, SK

RAPID Upper Body Saskatoon, January 28-29, 2022

RAPID NeuroFascial Reset
Upper Body Seminar - Saskatoon SK

Saskatoon Inn and Conference Center

MTAS Primary Credits -15

Please join us this January in Saskatoon for the RAPID NeuroFascial Reset Upper Body course! The basis of this course is to teach the practitioner hands on neurological resets of the muscles, fascia, ligaments, and nerves. Our goal for this course is to not only give you a successful method of restoring the tissue but also increase your palpation skills and give you some cookbook protocols for some of the most complex issues that clients often present with. RAPID will give you an amazing tool to help reduce your client’s pain and increase their mobility while increasing their trust and compliance for any other therapies you offer. We know your educational dollars are precious and promise a weekend chalked full of information and instantly applicable skills to add to your “tool box”.

During our Upper Body seminar you will learn simple, immediately applicable, effective neurological releases for; migraines and headaches, frozen shoulder, lateral and medial epicondylitis, whiplash and concussion, carpal tunnel, pronator teres syndrome, impingement syndrome, nerve entrapments, TMJ-D, vertigo and tinnitus, arthritis and much more.

Curious about just what you will learn at a RAPID NeuroFascial Reset course?

Upon successful completion of this course, participants will be able to palpate and neurologically reduce deep fascial restrictions. Participants will also have a firm grasp of the neurological basis for fascial and muscular relaxation of the tissues and understand how to access the neurobiological system in which the fascial system communicates. Participants will also understand the role of injury in its relationship with; inflammation, tissue tightness, neuromuscular control and muscle imbalance in regard to the motor control center as well as how all of these can contribute to increased tissue restriction and pain. Participants will also gain an advanced understanding of the mechanoreception, as well as a method of manipulation to affect the greatest changes in tissue tension, tightness, and foremost pain.

Price $997.

  • Understand the clinical importance of TBB for the treatment of joint and musculoskeletal dysfunctions.
  • Learn how to evaluate patients and formulate treatment plans by utilizing the principles of ARTS: Asymmetry, Range of Motion, Tension Tests, Special Tests.

CranioSacral Therapy 1: Assessment of Central Nervous System and Fascia for Full Body Treatment Prot

Calgary, AB

Discover how CranioSacral Therapy (CST) works with the body’s natural rhythms to assist with a variety of conditions. CST is unique — it helps identify the source and facilitates healing, leading to optimum health and vitality.

CranioSacral Therapy:

  • Assists in autonomic nervous system regulation to help to turn down sympathetic overdrive.
  • Addresses the interfaces of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, such as at the myodural bridge where tensions can be broadcast up and down the entire dural system.
  • Works with the body’s fascial network to improve representation in the somato-sensory cortex.

Learn from the Source — our founder, Dr. John E. Upledger was the developer of CranioSacral Therapy. After CranioSacral Therapy 1: Assessment of Central Nervous System and Fascia for Full Body Treatment Protocol  (CS1), you will be able to immediately and easily integrate Dr. Upledger’s 10-Step Protocol into your practice.
