Fluid Pressure Dynamics - An Interactive Approach for Fascial Support & Correction

Saturday, March 27, 2021, 1:15 PM - 2:30 PM

Session Description 

As Structural Integrators, we well understand the significance of fascia in terms of its strength, resilience and effect on alignment and structure. We know it responds to a direct and systematic treatment and have all witnessed life-changing results. With the new research involving fascia, we now are getting a glimpse of an extremely intelligent, dynamic and sensitive system, which is responsible for communication, nutrition, hydration, proprioception, enderoception, immune function, lymphatic interface and neuro-endocrine function. With this new information, it seems that we need a way to not only lengthen and balance fascia but also to support and communicate with this magnificent structure with precision and reverence. I would like the opportunity to share what I have learned in my 30+ years of working with connective tissue which has culminated in the ability to read and interact with a special aspect of self-correction involving the presentation would fluid pressures and resulting in a simultaneous integration of physiological and biomechanical function.

Frank Lowen graduated from New Mexico School of Natural Therapeutics in 1983. He studied extensively with Dr. John Upledger and Jean-Pierre Barral, DO, PT, and became a certified Instructor for both CranioSacral Therapy (1986) and Visceral Manipulation and was the Program Director for the Visceral Manipulation Program from 1989 to 2001, presenting in the US, Canada, Europe, and New Zealand. He left to pursue the development and teaching of his own work, which he taught through Dialogues of Contemporary Rehabilitation, Northeast Seminars and eventually his own company. As he studied the cranial, visceral and neurological systems, he came to realize that the fascial system was more influential and complicated than he had been led to believe, and chose to get his training in Structural Integration.

Frank has an active practice in Spokane, Washington and continues to teach classes through his own company, Lowen Systems, in the US and Europe. In Germany, he teaches primarily to Physical Therapists, Osteopaths, Naturopaths and Medical Doctors for continuing education credits.
