Description:

The integrity of the structures of the pelvis enable the support of all the organs– even the lungs and heart. The pelvis also serves as the link of legs to torso. It stabilizes and mobilizes that connection and balances both torso and skull.

A full understanding of the dynamics of the entire pelvic floor system and possible troublesome variables is crucial knowledge for any massage therapist.

This hands-on workshop will teach multiple approaches to diagnosing and treating disorders associated with pelvic floor function. Participants will have the opportunity to experience the roles of both practitioner and patient.

​ ​*****This ​is ​a ​hands ​on ​class ​and ​will ​require ​use ​of ​a ​massage ​table. ​ ​There ​are ​no ​tables ​available ​at ​this ​venue, ​you ​will ​have ​to ​bring ​one.*****
