This 3-day workshop covers much more than just techniques and strategies, and are designed to have massage therapists return home with dramatically different approaches to working with tissue, no matter what kind of work you specialize in. It is important that each student obtains quality hands-on supervision to perfect the subtle aspects of biomechanics and touch.

Art Riggs: “In this workshop we will provide an understanding of the multiple forces that cause disruption of pelvic balance and offer many techniques to effectively treat fascial, muscular, ligamentous, and osseous elements to give clients relief from specific complaints and to facilitate better balance in the entire body.”

An understanding of working with the pelvis is essential for any bodyworker because of its effect upon rotational patterns and front-to-back balance. The pelvis bridges the gap between the upper and lower body and transmits gravity up through the body and is crucial for treating and resolving issues in the whole body from the feet to the head. An understanding of working with both muscles and fascia to resolve rotational stress upon the pelvis and to balance anterior/posterior forces is essential for treatment of both pelvic complaints but for dysfunction above and below, but is only one part of the equation.

In this workshop we will provide and understanding of the multiple forces that cause disruption of pelvic balance and offer many techniques to effectively treat fascial, muscular, ligamentous, and osseous elements to give clients relief from specific complaints and to facilitate better balance in the entire body.
