The Axial Skeleton, Myofascial Unwinding & Myofascial Assessment and Integration

The Axial Skeleton

The Axial Skeleton workshop is delivered in a 2-day attendance workshop and a 1-day online theory course providing 3 days of CPD.

This MFR workshop will discuss the anatomy and function of the TMJ area, the spine and sacrum. This workshop offers diagnostic skills, the biomechanical and biotensegrity understanding of the relationship of the jaw with the rest of the body and easy to use fascial techniques to regain correct movement, balance and function.

Pre-Requisite – Structural Series Part 1

The participant will:

  • Explore the anatomy of the TMJ joint
  • Learn effective internal and external MFR techniques for the muscles of mastication
  • Explore the symptoms related to Bruxism, jaw clenching and joint popping
  • Learn how to assess fascial restrictions surrounding the TMJ area
  • Explore the importance of the TMJ area with regards to posture
  • Explore the relationship of the jaw, pelvis and cranial bones with regards to balance
  • Learn how to assess and effectively treat the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine
  • Explore the functional and structural relationship between the sacrum and lumbar spine
  • Explore how vertebral restrictions can affect the entire structurE
  • Learn appropriate fascial techniques for the quadratus lumborum, erector spinae and pelvis
  • Learn appropriate fascial techniques to unlock the sacrum and jammed vertebrae to promote freedom of movement.

A CPD certificate of attendance will be provided after the workshop for both the online course the practical attendance workshop.

Myofascial Unwinding

The Myofascial Unwinding Workshop is delivered in a 2-day attendance workshop and a 1-day online theory course providing 3- days of CPD.

Myofascial Unwinding is the spontaneous movement of the body during an MFR treatment session. This movement is the body’s self-correcting mechanism. It is a natural, safe and effective way to release deep restrictions due to the unconscious, habitual, holding and bracing patterns both physical and emotional. This movement also takes the hard work out of understanding postural evaluation and protocol techniques. It allows the therapist to see, feel and access the glitches in the patient’s unique fascial system, follow and soften through them and thereby restoring function and range.

Pre-requisite – Structural Series Part 1

The participant will learn –

  • The science and theory behind this movement approach
  • The importance of fascial history with regards to emotion and movement
  • Therapeutic dialoguing
  • Safe and effective ways to facilitate this movement
  • Standing, seated and lying unwinding
  • Local and full body unwinding
  • The difference between unwinding and calculated movements
  • How to read the physical unwinding language
  • How to move through unwinding patterns and facilitate change
  • How to work with the emotional component
  • How to explain this approach confidently to the patient.

A CPD certificate of attendance will be provided after the workshop for both the online course the practical attendance workshop.

The Myofascial Assessment and Integration

This Workshop is delivered online and provides 3 days of CPD.

Myofascial assessment and integration offers effective postural and functional assessment and fundamental muscle groups and ligamentous testing. This workshop emphasis the importance of function versus dysfunction and offers many, easy to learn, functional testing applications looking at joint-by-joint and basic biomechanics. This workshop also brings a greater understanding of trigger points and what role they play in myofascial pain. Muscle energy techniques will be discussed and basic applications will be skilfully integrated into effective myofascial techniques as well as the introduction of neurofascial release, a powerful and effective therapy developed by MFR UK which uses gentle isometric contraction in conjunction with MFR which increases mobility and proprioception.

This workshop is available for students who have attended MFR UK’s level 1 and also for those therapists who have attended MFR training elsewhere of at least 2 days with an emphasis on sustained MFR.

The student will learn:

  • Fundamental functional and postural evaluation and assessment
  • The basic principals and treatment of myofascial trigger points with regards to chronic myofascial pain
  • The basic principles of muscle energy techniques and their integration with MFR
  • Various applications of neuromuscular therapy to improve proprioception and mobility

A CPD certificate will be provided after the completion of this online workshop.
