BASIC VISCERAL SERIES

New for 2019 - available as an intensive course in Bingley, just prior to the Global Visceral lecture dates. 

Basic Visceral - practical day 1

CNMO CODE: GV-M1-PM1

£120

Normal one day price - this year, only available as an intensive block  (4x 120, with a slight discount - £450) 

NOW ON SALE - £300

Embryology, location, anatomical variation, global links / core links

Has emodule you can buy separately.

WED-THURS-FRI

4-5-6 September, Bingley  INTENSIVE(COVERS ALL 4 SESSIONS MATERIAL)

Put the tape measures away and learn how to really find and palpate the organs, and yes, its different to feeling bones, but you can still find your way around with a bit of guidance. 

Learn embryology the fun way, and through that get a much better sense of the visceral 'ligaments' and realise that it is very artificial to discus minute techniques to very discrete structures - it doesn't reflect the reality of the structure and function of the body cavities and their contents.  This course doesn't include 'motility' as in an 'involuntary mechanism' it is very clear that motility mean peristalsis.

The intra-peritoneal organs

Has emodule you can buy separately.

WED-THURS-FRI

4-5-6 September, Bingley INTENSIVE(COVERS ALL 4 SESSIONS MATERIAL)

This day is to get ones head around all the omentums, the paracolic gutters, the circulation and drainage of the organs etc and the basic physiology of the gastro-intestinal tract (from mouth to anus).   Orients you to a few myths in visceral work - like milking the gall bladder, reducing hernias and opening and closing the ileo-caecal valve.  There are caveats to all of these, and risks, benefits, plausibility and rational approaches are discussed in this review of the GIT and it location / assessment.

The intra-pleural and pericardial organs

Has emodule you can buy separately.

WED-THURS-FRI

4-5-6 September, Bingley INTENSIVE(COVERS ALL 4 SESSIONS MATERIAL)

Getting into the chest, and understanding the mediastinum and its contents and their relationships is fascinating, and not nearly as difficult as one might imagine.  Come and learn how to make the rib cage 'more transparent' and how to access deeper structures and engage with different fascial receptors and dynamics in the chest.   This days reveals why the upper limbs and lungs are inter-related, and why the root of the neck is embedded deep into the chest - bring a cervico-brachial dynamic to mediastinal work in a more three-dimensional way.

The retro-peritoneal and sub-peritoneal organs

Has emodule you can buy separately.

WED-THURS-FRI

4-5-6 September, Bingley INTENSIVE(COVERS ALL 4 SESSIONS MATERIAL)

Understanding the interface behind and underneath the 'peritoneal balloon' helps us appreciate how the ventral lumbar column, with the aorta, vascular branches, plexi and cisterna are all in balance with the spine and the organ contents of the peritoneum.  Work in the retro-peritoneal space and the pelvis is at once simple (when approached in the right way) but at the same time appreciable as a highly sensitive and complex series of zones that needs more careful discrimination,  This day helps you get started.

GLOBAL VISCERAL

This does pain concepts, breathing, mindfulness, approaches to dissociation, vagal tone and many adjunct things to understand how to aid management of / interaction with a variety of visceral conditions.  Takes techniques up a notch from the visceral basics and prepares people for the women's health series.

Global cavity dynamics and supports / anatomy for the organs

WED-THURS-FRI

2-4 October 2019, Bingley INTENSIVE(COVERS ALL 4 SESSIONS MATERIAL)

Has an emodule you can buy separately

You may or may not have done much visceral work before, and you may not be happy with the 'motility' framework - this course ensures that motility refers to peristalsis and ensures that you become aware that managing visceral conditions with osteopathy is MUCH more than just rummaging in abdomens.   Starting afresh from a ventral perspective, the course starts from the coelum and visceral cavities, discusses peritoneal fluid, and visceral slide dynamics.  Brings new insights into visceral palpation and give s agood overview of peritoneal anatomy and the general system of supports for the organ in all the cavities.

Has an emodule you can buy separately

This final day in the series looks at the thoracic and pelvic cavities from the lens of the topics already covered in this series - that of neural integration, circulation, serous fluid flow in the body cavities, visceral slide and somato-visceral interactions.  Looks at some respiratory, circulatory and pelvic organ disorders, but these are also picked up in separate series so are not dealt with indepth.    Fouses on the retroperioneal organs and urinary system not covered in day 3.  Evidence recap, theory and practical.
