After completing the fundamental series of Modules 1, 2, and 3, we invite you to attend any of our Structural Aspects advanced modules below.
Visceral Course (I & II)
One of the most fascinating and useful results of applying osteopathic palpatory concepts to TEAM (Traditional East Asian Medicine) is the clear realization that the yin and yang organs described in our core texts are clearly connected to the actual physical organs and that these connections are palpable.
+ Part I
In this three-day class we will go over the living anatomy of the most important viscera, learn palpatory techniques to listen to them, and go over some ways to integrate this information into the practice of TEAM. This next step in Engaging Vitality, will aid in gaining a more complete and less abstract understanding of TEAM and its applications. It will have a significant positive impact on your practice.
+ Part II
In this two-day followup class to Visceral 1 we will first review layer palpation and visceral basics from Visceral 1, so that you can take your understanding of the viscera to the next level. New material will include the kidneys, heart, pericardium, and an overview of the pelvis. We will finish with some work on how to integrate this information into the practice of TEAM. Note that this course is only open to students who have already taken Visceral 1.
In this two-day class we will start by working on how to properly touch the head to get the maximum amount of information safely. We will then discuss how the head fits into the rest of the organism as it becomes the “eighth listening post.” The bulk of the class will be working on understanding and palpating the sutures and the cranial base along with how what we feel can be integrated into our practices. We will also learn the proper use of the CV-4 technique and share some ideas about what this technique and its effects mean in the context of Traditional East Asian Medicine.
