two-day seminar will examine the four basic styles of performance inherent in
all athletic disciplines. Utilising structural integration and myofascial
therapy theories and techniques that are appropriate for each style of
performance, participants will focus on developing training and event protocols
sprint, power, and
Presentations on performance mechanics, somatotypes, and the balancing of the
autonomic nervous system will highlight a comprehensive study of advanced
therapies for the athletic performer.
One – Foundations The
first day of the seminar will present the primary concepts of the physical
and psychological demands of training and performance for all athletes. A
breakdown of somatotypes and their inherent strengths and challenges will be
used to discuss the development of bodywork protocols for the endurance, sprint,
power and multi-skilled athlete. Myofascial and structural techniques for the
leg, pelvis and back will be presented for both training and performance cycles.
Two – Advanced Methods The
second day of the seminar will present advanced strategies for developing
protocols that are both sport-specific and performance-level based. Techniques
for working with intrinsic myofascial tissues of the axial and appendicular
regions and strategies to balance the autonomic nervous system will be taught.
Advanced protocols for the arms, shoulders, chest, neck and head will also be
the conclusion of the seminar participants will be able to organise a manual
therapy treatment plan for athletic performers based upon the demands of the
sport or performance on a specific body type at various points in the
athlete’s training, development and competition.
