From structural unity to wholeness – What is the way to analyse and understand the functions of the human being?

New research in the field of neurosciences is progressing more and more towards a more global approach.
At the same time, this way of analysing the human being forces us to understand the relationship between the different systems of the body.

Among these, we find the fascial system as a basic tissue which is, par excellence, an unbroken network making the body a whole unit. In addition, we have the nervous system, which is no longer considered only as a transmitter of nerve flow, but is also involved in mechano-neuro-physiological functions. What is the feedback between these two systems and how can we modify their responses?
responses? What is their role in pain?

In order to answer these questions, could we stay in a “mechanical” sphere?

In this training we will understand both the mechanical and the neurophysiological link to a multidimensional approach. We will provide you with new tools for clinical reasoning, thus assessments and indeed new treatment techniques. “The unknown scares the fearful, while for the curious it is a new opportunity.

Would you be willing to dive into this new approach?

  • To provide some conceptual bases for understanding the human being in a multidimensional approach.
  • Develop new assessment and clinical reasoning tools.
  • To propose a grounded therapeutic approach to medicine that uses evidence.
  • To train students in miofascial and neurodynamic techniques and to analyse their influence on the functioning of the body as a functional unit.
  • To propose a modern conception of pain and provide tools to modulate it.
  • To expose the basics of integrated body functioning, governed by the laws of tensegrity.
  • Analyse posture and integrate the fascial system and the nervous system (neuroconjunctive) as structures responsible for changing such posture.
  • Analyse how facial and neuro-conjunctive structures limit movement.
  • Analyse the role of these structures in pain and develop their influence.
  • Propose some evaluation methods to differentiate the structures involved.
  • Propose some treatment strategies for different possible “pathologies”.
  • Train students to develop manual sensitivity for the assessment and treatment of myofascial and neurodynamic techniques.
