the pivotal pelvis
For laymen, health- & movement professionals
The pivotal pelvis is a course aimed at exploring pelvic health from a specific model ‘©the pelvic hub’ (based on the bicycle wheel), that looks at everything from our different body-systems to the larger socio-cultural and environmental systems that we are a part of. Many of us have a very limited understanding of our pelvic region, how it functions and is impacted by the world around us, and even less understanding of what to do when this region doesn’t function the way we need it to. This workshop is inspired by knowledge developed from years of working – and living – with the human body and the pelvis, combined with an enhanced understanding of the body and pelvis informed by in-depth dissection studies.
1 day workshop or lecture
the pelvic pothole
The pelvis has been neglected for a long time in healthcare and rehabilitation, and there is generally poor knowledge of this area of the body. Pelvic anatomy is not as it seems in many anatomy books, and we will look at what this means for our work with clients. The two workshops below will look at different aspects of functional pelvic anatomy.
PELVIC ANATOMY: PROSECTION
For health- & movement professionals
This workshop will cover pelvic anatomy based on dissections, function and clinical experience; particular focus will be given to fascia as an important component of the whole. Based on prosections, pictures and videos of dissections, we will take a critical look at our understanding of the pelvis and what this means for how we work with clients. The pelvis is intricately connected to the rest of the body, and needs to be a part of understanding dysfunction in other parts of the body. Hence this course is for anyone who works with function and dysfunction in the human body.
FUNCTIONAL PELVIC ANATOMY
For health- & movement professionals
This workshop will put the pelvis back into our understanding of movement and breathing, based on dissections, function and clinical experience; particular focus will be given to fascia as an important component of the whole. The pelvis is intricately connected to the rest of the body, and we will look at how the pelvis is involved in movement and breathing, based on a review of pelvic anatomy in relation to the whole body. Hence this course is for anyone who works with function and dysfunction in the human body.
the painful pelvis
ASSESSMENT & TOUCH-BASED TREATMENT
The course The painful pelvis aims to give an updated and functional understanding of the pelvis and of pelvic pain in relation to the whole body, the individual and the context we have created and live in. The course covers various aspects of pain (culture & pain, neurophysiology of pain, myo/fascial pain and palpation),as well as internal touch-based pelvic assessment and treatment.
It is recommended to take The Pivotal Pelvis and one of The Pelvic Pothole courses before The Painful Pelvis, to give a stronger base for understanding how to assess and treat.
Online courses for clients
Online courses looking at different aspects of pelvic function will soon be available. The courses are aimed at people suffering from pelvic dysfunction, or who want to learn more about the pelvis. It is recommended that they are used in conjunction with hands-on or one-to-one sessions with relevant therapists. But with the possibility of online self-learning, the face-to-face sessions can focus on aspects that can only be done together with the therapist.
As they are developed, the courses will be listed here.
