applies the Buckminster Fuller/Kenneth Snelson tensegrity concept of
"continuous tension – discontinuous compression" to biologic
structures, with the fascia serving as the continuous, unifying mechanical
structure in the body. Goals of the course are to question the classical
biomechanical model based on the lever system, define a new paradigm for the
physics of biology, and contrast the biotensegrity model with the lever based
Newtonian/Borellian model. Using biotensegrity, we will present a
new approach to the theoretical understanding and practical applications when
dealing with tissue imbalances, and how they can be applied in a clinical
environment. We will show how your present clinical practice can be integrated
into the proposed model.
The course consists of lectures, demonstrations and class involvement.
Participants will build tensegrity structures with supplied materials, and
experience movement patterns and therapeutic techniques consistent with the
understanding of biotensegrity.
