April 1
Foundations of Ortho-Bionomy Focus on the Spine Day 1
8 CEUs
Investment: $150 if received by 3/1 and $175 if received after 3/1
Instructor: Mike Miller
Prerequisite: None

In this class, we will look at the history,  philosophy, and principle of Ortho-Bionomy and provide an overview of the basic release  techniques for each major joint in the body. Movements and positions of comfort are demonstrated to facilitate the release of muscular tension and overall stress by stimulating the inherent, self-corrective reflexes of the body which help the body create structural alignment and balance from within. Areas of the body covered will include the spine, ribs, sternum, psoas, and pelvis.

April 2-3
Working With the Vagus and Phrenic Nerves
16 CEUs
Investment: $350 if received by 3/2 and $400 if received after 3/2
Instructor: Mike Miller
Prerequisite: TBD

In this class, we are going to explore the pathways of the Vagus and Phrenic nerve and learn how to work with them. The Vagus nerve is a cranial nerve and the longest nerve in the sympathetic nerve in the body. The Vagus has both sensory and motor functions. The Vagus plays a crucial role in the function of the lungs, heart and digestive system. The Phrenic nerve begins in the mid neck and connects to the diaphragm and liver. The main function of the Phrenic nerve is respiration.

We will be using Ortho-Bionomy to work with the soft tissues and bony structures along the pathways these nerves follow. Working with these areas will relieve tension helping the nerves. We will be working with the neck, shoulders, esophagus, chest, diaphragm, and abdomen.

Exploration of Movement
16 CEUs
Investment: $300 if received by 5/11 and $350 if received after 5/11
Instructor: Mike Miller
Prerequisite: TBD

In this class, we will be focusing on the observation  and exploration of joint and muscle movement patterns. Students will learn how to notice and follow  the body’s movement preferences to enhance the fluid  motion between the joints and muscles. Using Ortho-Bionomy techniques you will learn how to facilitate the release of acute and chronic holding patterns that create pain and stiffness. Releasing these patterns can help decrease pain and increase range of motion. Students will also learn palpation and sensing skills that will increase their effectiveness working with people.
