MER 4: Releasing and Balancing the Face, Cranium, Neck, Breath and Arms (Original Face)

Many upper body conditions stubbornly persist despite conventional bodywork techniques. In Module 4 you will learn a comprehensive methodology to work with the neck, breath, arms and face. 

You will be introduced to the psychology of these areas and how to work with the body’s natural trauma releasing abilities using breath-work. 

You will start to master how to educate clients about the psychosomatic sources of pain and how to work with the most common pain syndromes of the upper body. 

Mer 4 will include a review of rotator cuff anatomy, palpation of the rotator cuff muscles and related structures. 

The chest and diaphragm are often overlooked as primary contributors to back and shoulder issues. As the source of our breathing and our taking in of life energy, these core muscles are often tight, constricting breathing, energy flow and movement. 

We learn and review simple but powerful methods to release the diaphragm, sternum, and ribcage, helping clients to breathe with less effort. 

You will receive techniques to release the muscles and fascia of the hands, thumbs and forearms to increase mobility in the corresponding joints and releasing the forearm muscles to effectively liberate the shoulder.
