The Academic Intensive program begins with this course. Myofascial Release is an integral part of this program. It is an introductory level course that provides the entry level student with ample lab time to develop initial palpation skills. The student also begins their introduction to the fundamental principles of Integrative Manual Therapy, including the Integrated Systems Approach.
During this course, the student learns how to assess, diagnose, and treat the connective tissue system utilizing Integrative Manual Therapy protocols and techniques and Integrative Diagnostics. The connective tissue system is the only system of the body which is continuous and contiguous. If there is an area of the body that is dysfunctional, it will always manifest through the connective tissue system. This course provides the student with many different techniques to treat connective tissue dysfunction on all different types of individuals.
