What you'll learn
  • The value of movement assessment vs. static assessment (like posture).
  • The REAL role of ligaments.
  • The Holistic Approach "Hierarchy"
  • An overview of the Kinetic Chains.
  • The link between breath and IAP.
  • The construct of the thoracic diaphragm and its connection to other body systems.
  • How to affect the diaphragm and intrinsic core with breathing drills.
  • None.

This course provides the foundational knowledge to enter the In-Person Workshop or One-on-One Program.

Please Note: This course will not provide you with the SensoriMotor Protocol. This information here simply prepares the student to enter the in-person segments of this course.

Wondering if you can take this and not the in-person??? Well, sure but I would love to see you. If you take this course alone, expect a little anatomy review regarding general ligament locations and some cool info about these structures you may not know. You will also learn the role of breathing in developing core stability and a breathing drill for allowing people to better access their deep core. Not the full meal deal, but some CE hours if that's what you're looking for.

Who this course is for:
  • Massage Therapists
  • Other Manual Therapists
  • Athletic Therapists
  • Personal Trainers
  • Yoga & Pilates Instructors
  • Fitness Professionals

Welcome to the prep course. WOOOOOO HOOOOO!

So excited to have you start this process, and really stoked to get you ready for our in-person work. I'm hoping that this unique approach to continuing education will be of great value to you.

With my experience in formal education, teaching at massage therapy colleges for 14+ years, I have often found that some students get lost in class. The content is delivered too quickly, or in a manner that is difficult for them to understand but they don't feel comfortable speaking up. This means that they may lose really important info. I want that to end, or to give those types of students an alternative way to learn.

Here it is. Let's begin.

Hey! Below is an outline of all the stuff covered in this whole course. Online and In-Person. Get excited!!!

+ Posture vs Movement Assessment
1 lecture 06:12

The value of adding movement assessment. Maybe you already do this. Yay for you!

Remember to take a look at the video below for an easy way to assess eye movement issues that may be disrupt motor control.

Static vs Dynamic Assessment Techniques
+ SensoriMotor Approach
1 lecture 30:13

This is a little teaser to show you how we will approach improving movement, tissue tone and decreasing pain using the SensoriMotor principles of.... Assess | Correct | Move

No big secrets revealed until the in-person, but this will give ya a little taste.

SM Approach & Role of Ligaments
+ Ligaments: A Paradigm Shift
1 lecture 09:59

Ligaments as sensory organs. Whaaaat?!?!?!?!

Get ready to shift your thinking.

Identifying the many roles of ligaments and how their function can be disrupted.
+ The SensoriMotor Ligaments
2 lectures 23:37

In this lecture we cover the ligaments used in SensoriMotor Retraining Technique. The linked video shows you how to locate these ligaments so that we can stimulate them when using the protocol.

SM Ligaments - location and cool facts

A quick little look at a way to access these ligaments. This is not the only way, so if you have a different way... Yay! Do what you know.

Here's the order they are presented in:









TLF & Galea

SM Ligament Palpation
+ Overview of Kinetic Chains
2 lectures 14:00

A look at the components of the subsystems. Don't worry... we will be talking about these much much more together.

Introducing the Construct of the Kinetic Chains

Take a look at what it looks like when these subsystems are doing their job. This is a short video showing you what it looks like when you use the subsystems.

The Kinetic Chains in Action
+ Breathing & IAP
1 lecture 08:57

The link between breath and intra-abdominal pressure is an important one.

This section shows you how that happens, and the components of the intrinsic core that work together to provide you a stable foundation from which movement can be distributed outwards and powerfully.

A couple links below to teach you how to start re-igniting that intrinsic core. Check them out cuz we use this technique a lot in SensoriMotor Retraining Technique.

+ Some Notes & Wrap Up
1 lecture 10:54

A quick wrap up. Don't worry about not mastering all this quite yet.

Write down your them to me, post them in the FAQ section or save them for our in-person.

Everything becomes more clear with a little practice.

Key Concepts & Moving Forward into the In-Person Component.
+ What Do You Know Now?

Don't panic!

This short quiz is only intended to make sure you got the basics so that we can spend lots of time on practical application when we see each other in-person.
