Visceral Manipulation: Visceral Vascular Manipulation: Lower Body (VVML)
This course explores evaluation and treatment techniques for the vascular system of the lower body.
- Review the anatomy and physiology of the vascular system, particularly how arteries dilate or diminish in diameter depending on the function of the body.
- Understand how compression along vascular structures creates restriction patterns and pain.
- Learn to locate and release restrictions along the vascular structures using direct techniques on the arteries like compression, decompression and elongation.
- Explore manipulation of the soft tissues of the arteries of the lower body such as the hepatic, splenic, femoral and popliteal.
- Enhance your understanding of how increased blood circulation to an organ improves function of the viscera, and learn how to improve the blood circulation to organs, directly and/or indirectly.
- Learn treatment of the vaso-pressive system and the brain.
- Discover the research done with doppler ultrasound to determine the best mobilizations of the arteries to improve local and general blood circulation.
- Understand Barral’s view of the knee as a ‘neurological joint,’ and the way to restore intelligence through improved blood flow.
- Learn invaluable techniques to use after trauma and post-surgery – when conventional musculoskeletal techniques give limited pain and functional relief.
- Discover the role of the vascular system in treatment post-pelvic, hip and knee surgery.
- Learn practical integration of vascular treatment into the therapeutic session.
- Identify vascular anatomy and physiology with a primary focus on arteries
- Describe arterial manipulation and the affect on connected organs
- Identify which organs have vascular dependence
- Explain treatment protocol for organs which have vascular dependence
- Demonstrate and describe vascular manipulation on the lower body
Registration starts at 830am on the first day of class. Daily class hours are from 9am – 530pm. On the last day, we will end by 4pm.
