Critical Myofascial Strategies; The Upper Extremities- New Paltz
When: October 13-14 , 2018
Where: One Epic Place, New Paltz
“Think globally act locally” is as apropos in bodywork as in politics. Myofascial Strategies are local, soft tissue interventions informed by an understanding of that body’s global structure. In this course, functional, visual, and palpatory assessments are demonstrated and practiced, and a framework of key relationships of body parts is provided. (eg: anterior scalpular tilt with elbow flexor shortness). Numerous, novel myofascial techniques are demonstrated and practiced, often with a client-active component. Beyond prone and supine, sidelying, and seated and methods are offered, with an eye to percolate new thinking as to how myofascial work can be applied and received. Additionally, various stretches and exercises, designed to augment the myofascial work, will be outlined for “homework” for the proactive client.
Richard Condon has been an LMT for 17 years and a certified Rolfer for 7. He has studied structural and visceral work, and taken a week-long cadaver dissection
class. In addition to private practice Richard has worked for over 7 years with an Osteopathic doctor in Manhattan. Always intrigued by structural asymmetries, their
causes, consequences and corrections, Richard approaches bodywork from a biomechanical perspective.
