This popular series of seminars presents practicing somatic therapists and qualified students with advanced and little-known myofascial techniques which can be easily incorporated into existing personal styles. Drawing on a wide range of disciplines, the focus is on unusual, interesting, and fresh approaches that will both expand technique repertoire and inspire creativity and innovation. Potential topics include:
• Specific techniques for common structural and functional complaints
• Relieving pain, restoring lost function, and getting lasting results
• Utilizing both active and passive movement to enhance effectiveness
• Precision in working with specific tissue types and body layers
• Combining indirect or subtle work with deep or direct work
• Tracking subtle psychophysiological and nervous system responses
• Ways to work sensitively, safely, and comfortably at very deep levels.
In addition to in-person demonstrations and individualized hands-on supervision, our instructors use state-of-the-art instructional materials, including Primal Pictures' 3D Interactive Anatomy software.
Class size and student/teacher ratio are kept small for maximum personal attention. Participants also receive a detailed course manual/note organizer with photos of techniques covered. Videos of instructor demonstrations are also available for post-workshop practice and review.

Participants will be sent a brief list of anatomical structures to review prior to the course or go to www.advanced-trainings.com/anatreview.html to see that list now.
