Mobilisation of the Myofascial System and Structural Myofascial Therapy(R): Lower Quadrant

January 26 to 29 2019

Description :

Mobilisation of the Myofascial System (MMS) and Structural Mayofascial Therapy (SMFT (R)) of the Lower Quadrant

Instructors: Doreen Killens and BetsyAnn Baron

The program consists of:

- a half day theory course explaining the theory and concepts on Saturday January 26th, 2019 from 1pm until 6pm.

-3 days of MMS and SMFT (R) of the lower quadrant training from January 27th until January 29th, 2019 from 8:30am until 4:30pm.

The theory course allows therapists to join into the series at either the Lower quadrant or Upper quadrant. Taking the theory course once is the pre-requisite to taking either the Lower Quadrant or the Upper Quadrant course. Both Quadrant courses are required for the Advanced (Level 3) course. It is not required for participants to sign up for all three levels, although it is encouraged. 

This course is open to registered Physiotherapists only.

Do you have patients with multiple areas of pain but have difficulty finding the link between these areas? Have you mobilised the joints, used techniques to mobilise the neural system, and given them stabilisation programs but have the feeling that you're missing something?

This « something else » may be the fascia.

A number of research studies are being conducted to establish the role of fascia in musculo-skeletal dysfunction.  Learn to mobilise these tissues in order to help resolve your patients problems.

Course Description

This continuing education course is designed for physiotherapists who have acquired some basic skills in Manual Therapy and wish to learn more about advanced techniques in mobilization of the myofascial system. 

General Objectives:

The objective of this 3 day course is to provide the participant with the tools to assess and treat the myofascial system in the Lower Quadrant. This approach has shown to be particularly useful in patients with musculo-skeletal conditions, especially the “hard to treat: cases. The anatomy and physiology of the fascial system will be covered as well as their links with various mechanical dysfunctions. The techniques that will be demonstrated are based on two complementary approaches – one is a manual therapy approach for the fascia of the articular system; the other (Stuctural Myofascial Therapy) is a technique used  in Structural Integration that consists of a series of deep manual techniques that are used in conjunction with Postural Somatic Awareness. This combined approach will allow the participants to appreciate how these myofascial dysfunctions can affect the client’s range of motion, motor control, and global function.

More about your instructors:

Doreen Killens:

Doreen Killens graduated with distinction from McGill University in 1978.

She completed her qualifications for RCAMT and FCAMT in 1988 and 1993 respectively, and since that time, she has been teaching manual therapy across Canada. In addition, she is an examiner for the Orthopaedic Division of the CPA since 1996.

Doreen is co-owner of an orthopaedic clinic in Montreal  and has a particular interest in dysfunctions of the cranial, dural and fascial systems. She has found that this combined approach to treatment has been particularly beneficial not only for the treatment of headaches but for “hard to treat” clients with chronic conditions.

Doreen took her first cranio-sacral course with “The Cranial Institute” in 1986 and since then, has taken different courses worldwide, in particular in Australia with Harry von Piekart and more recently in Michigan with Dr. Greenman of Michigan State University, School of Osteopathy. Her approach to the cranial system is therefore a varied one, which incorporates the concepts of manual therapy.

Doreen has also just recently published a book called "Mobilizing the Myofascial System" with Handspring Publishing this year. Below is the front cover image of her new book for those who are interested in checking it out.

BetsyAnn Baron:

BetsyAnn Baron is a valued and respected massage therapist and educator. She started her practice in 1991 and has been teaching since 2006. Her early training consisted of Kinetic Swedish Massage™ and “Masso-Kinésithérapie” at Kine-Concept Institute, segueing almost immediately into Cranio-sacral Therapy and Visceral Manipulation through the Upledger Institute. In 2001 she became a certified CORE Myofascial Therapist, a technique taught by George Kousaleos, rapidly followed by an IASI recognized certification in CORE Structural Integration. Simultaneously, BetsyAnn studied with Stuart Taws in Soft Tissue Release and with Aaron Mattes in Active Isolated Stretch, adding therapeutic stretching techniques to her repertoire. She now devotes her time to treating people with the techniques and philosophies that encompass structural integration.
