Title: Balancing the pelvis

  • In this assessment, rationale and technique focused session, Aubrey will take you through each of the possible dysfunctions of the pelvis, explaining the nature and impact of each issue. Specific assessments will help to unravel complex cases by identifying each dysfunction in turn. Treatment will focus the most effective techniques to address each imbalance and reassessment strategies will help you to evaluate treatment outcomes.

Title: Kinetic Chain Patterns for Complicated Shoulder Conditions

  • In the world of manual therapy it has been proven that a contribution to shoulder pain comes from prior injuries or surgeries (scars) and musculoskeletal imbalances throughout the entire body. Fascial lines of tension, from accumulated injuries throughout your life time, can cause the entire body to compensate. So even when therapists treat the shoulder injuries, without doing Total Body Balancing Techniques and treating scars that have accumulated over a life time, the shoulder symptoms usually return! The first thing therapists will do is look at the ankles, and the stirrup spring system, which is the foundation of the entire body. Then they will also assess and treat lines of tension coming from the pelvis, knee, ankles, shoulders, elbow, wrist and neck, prior to treating complicated shoulder conditions. By addressing scars and lines of tension throughout the body, treating complicated shoulder conditions will be so much more effective. In this  updated presentation, James will cover both his latest advanced Shoulder treatment and Kinetic chain protocols.
