Fans of the Hip
Structural Essentials is a completely redesigned program that includes a series of short intensives to give you a solid, reliable, and holistic way of working.
Each workshop can be taken as a stand alone or part of the full ATSI training programme
This series of workshops will take you to a new level in therapy by combining movement and specific manual techniques for the most efficient and long-lasting results, using the latest research on the interaction between skeleton, myofascia, joints, and fascial proprioceptors.
See how inefficient mechanics in one spot can lead to overuse problems (and pain) somewhere quite distant from the original issue – and then use both movement and manual techniques to make quick, effective and lasting improvements.
Each course focuses on 15-20 core ‘templates’ for technique, which can be applied in different ways for different patterns in your clients. We will teach you the relevant structural anatomy for the area and the common postural and movement implications around each of them.
The hip and pelvis combine to transfer the forces from two legs into the one spine, and therefore have a hugely complex role to fulfil in the body. Ida Rolf described the pelvis as ‘the joint that determines symmetry’ and it is easy to see why. Differences between the hips can affect down into the legs or up through the spine. Achieving balance here can be essential for long lasting results in any therapy. This course sheds light on the pelvis – the keystone of human architecture – by organising the 20 or so muscles of the pelvis into three fans. As well as giving you strategies and techniques to balance these Fans of the Hip.
This course focuses on:
This Course focuses on:
*‘Fans of the Hip Joint’ - introduce the concept & anatomy of three fan-like soft tissue arrangements
*Using these fans to balance pelvic tilts and torsions
*Learning how to work accurately, effectively and sensitively with the adductors and deep lateral rotators, leading to the pelvic floor
*Structural & functional approaches for the pelvic floor, creating a balanced pelvis and functional hips
*Soft tissue approaches for SI joint balance
*The psoas complex and the many variations on ideas of how it does (or does not) affect pelvic, low back and hip patterns
Aims of the workshop:
Build a foundation for Structural Integration work
Understand the pelvis and its influence on the rest of the body via the Anatomy Trains
Give and progressively build on a system v. symptom based approach to healing
use functional & structural assessments to formulate session strategies
Apply Fascial Release work based on anatomy and body patterns
Shift from “ technique” to palpation driven work
