Details:Generally following the trail of larger visceral ligaments associated with the Gastrointestinal Track, SVGI offers a complementary approach to Visceral Manipulation. Rooted in respectful direct technique and hands-on skills familiar to a Rolfer/SI Practitioner, the abdominopelvic organs are addressed within the same general 3-D architectural framework as Dr. Rolf's recipe sessions 1-6. SVGI incorporates a 'Principles Approach' to strategizing, troubleshooting, and problem solving sessions as developed by Sultan, Salveson, and Maitland.

SVGI contextualizes the low-back, pelvis and abdomen with the organs and membranes of the gastrointestinal system. A primary goal is to better balance membranous tension associated with the parietal peritoneum. In concert with keeping a global structural perspective, SVGI is further contextualized with the lumbodorsal fascia, lower extremities and feet.

Appropriate for beginners and seasoned practitioners alike, SVGI offers a 'Combined Technique'approach to Fascial  Manipulation. Membranous and visceral structures covered include the peritoneum, cecum, appendix, ascending colon, hepatic flexure, liver, gall bladder, stomach, spleen, splenic flexure, descending colon, sigmoid colon, urinary bladder, lesser and greater omentum, and the root of the mesentery. Bridging biopsychosocial and anatomical gaps, Structural-Visceral Integration offers a systems anatomy approach to Structural Integration. The goal is systems symbiosis.

Please bring a treatment table, set of sheets, and pillows if you like to this event.
