Structural Dynamics: Cervical (Neck) and Shoulders
The Shoulder girdle and cervical spine are both highly mobile and can compensate for restriction and poor function elsewhere in the body, often leading to strain injuries or chronic tension patterns and lack of proper cervical curvature. Understand the structural and functional dynamics within the shoulder girdle and cervical spine, as well as their relationships to the rest of the body, in order to release tension and restore function. Students learn dynamic techniques to release the myofascial restrictions and optimize function, structure, and postural relationships. This material is foundational for relieving chronic pain syndromes, range of motion limitations, and sports performance issues throughout the body.
