Training Your Touch: Palpation and Manual Assessment – 16 CE hours

Touch is integral to every style of bodywork and healing.

This two-day class blends lecture, discussion and guided exercises with plenty of hands-on practice to develop and refine palpation skills. On the first day, working with inanimate objects, living tissues and subtle pulses, we will experiment with strategies and techniques from world-renowned doctors and educators to enhance awareness. Then, we will use those new skills to evaluate the cardiac pulse and respiratory movements for signs of dysfunction or pathology. On the second day, our examination of skin, fascia and muscles will flow seamlessly into treatment with results that will boost your confidence as a therapist.

If you expect palpation to be boring, I think you will be surprised.
