The Structural Essential series is a set of intensive soft-tissue technique courses divided into functional regions. Combining movement and manual techniques for the most efficient and long-lasting results, and using the latest research on the interaction between skeleton, muscles, joints, and fascial proprioceptors, this series of workshops will take you to a new level in therapy.
Designed with the busy manual therapist in mind, each Structural Essentials event gives you a new understanding of the relevant area. The content will outline how the structural and functional anatomy relates to many common issues as well as to the rest of the body. Based on many new and established approaches this series will give you the skills in palpation, BodyReading and functional analysis needed for the modern multidisciplinary therapist.
Abdomen, Breath & Chest
The breath is an essential food for life and its passage in and out of the body can be compromised by structural issues in the trunk. The trunk must also act to support the shoulders as well as the neck and head. Its position and relationship with the pelvis can therefore be vital for correct mechanics of the upper limbs and head, neck and jaw.
This course focuses on ribcage and thoracic spine mechanics, and includes:
- The anatomy and physiology of the breath
- Various therapeutic views of the ‘normal’ breath
- Techniques for abdominal fasciae, ribs, vertebral rib joints, and mediastinal visceral tissues, scalenes, and lumbar muscles
- Techniques for facilitation of the ‘breath wave’ into the front, back, and sides, as well as into each ‘quadrant’ of the rib cage

Anatomy Trains Structural Integration
Bergen, Norway 2019/2020
Everybody needs to start with the Anatomy Trains Structure and Function 3-day overview class, where we get to know you and you get to know us. Follow up with our six regional anatomy workshops.
In Part two, students apply the assessments and techniques from Part one, to practice a 3-series protocol of Structural Integration with clinical practice on outside models in a 10-day program. This is most of all a taste and preparation into a deeper understanding
Part three is 2 intencive x 15-days classes where the students are taught and tested in the full 12-series designed program of Structural Integration. Graduates form this program are certified to practice ATSI and join the International Association of Structural Integrators (IASI). https://www.theiasi.net
