The Use in Structural Integration of an Original Andrew Taylor Still Osteopathic Technique
presented by Jeffrey Burch

About:

Andrew Taylor Still (1831–1917) was the founder of Osteopathy. A highly creative person, he developed and used many treatment methods. He wanted his students to also be creative in finding solutions for their patients. To this end, he taught anatomy and principles of treatment, but few of his own techniques as he wanted his students to develop their own treatment methods.

There is only one brief video of him performing a treatment. This grainy, silent, ten-second-long clip shown Still doing something with a patient's shoulder. Over a 10-year period, Richard van Buskirk watched this clip thousands of times and studied the notes from Still's original students. From this study, he developed a powerful and versatile technique. While van Buskirk originally used this technique to mobilize joints, it can be applied with great success to various areas of the body and a wide range of tissue types.

This webinar will teach two variations of van Buskirk's method and how to apply them. From this webinar, participants will be able to adapt this method for use on most tissue types and body parts.

This webinar counts for 1.0 hours of CE credit.

Leg Torsion Assessment as a Guide to Realistic Goals for Each Structural Integration Client
Presented by: Jeffrey Burch

About: 

The knee and ankle are both hinge joints, however, during growth and development, the axes of rotation of the two joints are only transiently parallel to each other. At birth, the axis of the ankle joint is internally rotated about 15 degrees with respect to the knee joint. During the growth and development, the tibia gradually twists along its length so that usually at about age 5-6 the two axes are parallel. In adulthood, any amount between 5 and 18 degrees of external rotation of the axis of the lake joint with respect to the axis of the knee joint is considered normal. Beyond this "normal" amount of tibial torsion, common range variants are from no change where the infantile 15 degrees of internal rotation is retained in adulthood, to 25 degrees of external rotation. The two legs in one person never have the same amount of tibial torsion. 

The femur undergoes a similar torsion along its length during growth and development with that substantial differences between people. Again, the two femurs in one person are rarely the same. Since the hip is not a hinge joint, femoral torsion is calibrated a different way. 

This webinar teaches a practical method to assess the torsion of each femur and each tibia to develop a realistic picture of these aspects of the native architecture of each person's legs. Knowing this feature of the uniqueness of each client's bony architecture provides a guide to assisting each client to find ease in their body.

Masses and Spaces Considering the Body as a 3-Dimensional Puzzle
Presented by: Michael Feldman

About: Human bodies consist of parts: Bones, Muscles, Organs, Glands, Nerves, etc… Each is wrapped in a woven, fibrous material called connective tissue which shape and protect. These are the Masses. Between these structures, the Spaces, is another form of connective tissue, a web of fluid-filled filaments. Tubes of water acting as a supple, buoyant network for the nervous system to communicate and adapt to the needs and demands of each and every mass suspended in it, balancing the body both structurally and physiologically. 

Considering structures and relationships via the alignment of the space between the masses, rather than the shape or function of the structures themselves, might allow for an alternative view to assess new strategies for both manual and movement therapies. Using touch as a tactile reference to determine and restore coherent alignment, and observing the masses in relation to each other while in motion, may provide a new way of cuing the body to more efficient movement patterns.

Structural Integration & Voice Dialogue: A Fertile Intersection
Presented by: Ruthie Fraser

About: In this workshop, I will share the basic principles of Voice Dialogue, and how a Voice Dialogue lens can assist and enhance the Structural Integration process. I will give an overview of Voice Dialogue and offer some case studies for further understanding. We will engage in a group activity to briefly experience the Voice Dialogue work internally, and then I will open up the space for questions.

I have been practicing Structural Integration for the past 14 years. For the past seven, I have also been a Voice Dialogue facilitator. I continue to experiment with blending these methodologies for interested clients. I have found that the practice of Voice Dialogue can bring momentum, dimension, insight, and efficacy into the Structural Integration journey.

Radiation Fibrosis: A Calling for SI
Presented by: Ritchie Mintz

About: Dr. Rolf had a special name for human bodies that had not been processed in the 10-session series of her work. She called them "random". Random bodies. If you understand the concept of the random body, what it is, and what that means, then a body ravaged by radiation is a very special kind of random body. It is a body that is at the outer extremes of "random body". (If you aren't completely clear on the concept of the random body, please consider my book: From Adam & Eve to Ida Rolf - What Is the Random Body? Available at www.RitchieMintz.com.)

Radiation Fibrosis and its evil twin, Droop Neck Syndrome, are no exceptions to any of our principles and practices. But they are a super exaggeration of all the troubles in any tissues we have ever touched. You might think that you can work on it like any other tissues that came before. The trouble is that one of the hallmarks of the irradiated body is hyper-sensitivity and hyper-vigilance. How do you unwind someone who winces and gasps with every touch?

I developed three techniques that get me past the hyper-sensitivity and the hyper-vigilance. These three methods allow me to work the 10-series in a way that these very special clients can tolerate. When I realized that, it changed how I touch everybody else.

How do I know all this? My wife, Gloria, is a 3-time cancer survivor who was irradiated like the core of Chernobyl. Let's say that I learned it all out of school and off the clock, every day for the last 20 years (and counting!)

Come and hear what I've learned. There's a tsunami of this work out there. The world needs us.

The 3 Holistic Systems of the Body
Presented by: James Beck

About: “There is no such thing as the immune system.”

This 1-hour workshop covers a structural integration approach to understanding the integrative immune system and its three holistic components: the capillary system, the neuronal system, and the fascial system.

Participants will learn the primary function of each component, as well as what challenges each system and how each can be supported. They will come to understand how these physiological systems affect emotions, thoughts, and beliefs.

At the end of the workshop, they will have a more comprehensive view of the body’s integrative immune system and how to support it.

Essential Body Awareness: Proprioceptive Foundations for Sustainable SI
Presented by: Mary Bond

About: Join us for an experiential webinar. We'll explore body awareness lessons relevant to the 10-series. Participants will need space to move around and a chair that allows hip joints to be positioned at a higher level than knees. The workshop is open to IASI members, their clients, and other somatic educators—anyone interested in standing, walking, and breathing with more efficiency and comfort. 

When we speak about teaching “movement” for SI, we are really talking about helping our clients notice the sensations of what they are doing and find ways to exchange unsupportive body use for habits that serve them better. Many SI practitioners do not have time or the training to offer sensorimotor sessions per se but wish to find ways to incorporate basic functional awareness into their SI sessions. The first step is to have a clear understanding and personal embodiment of supportive body use. Your own functional integration is the foundation for identifying the sensations that your client needs to feel. Body awareness “lessons” can be brief if you know how to get to the heart of things. This is Mary Bond’s special expertise and it is her joy to share her insights with you.

Practical Tools and Suggestions for Working Remotely with Your Clients: Utilizing Motor Imagery 
Presented by: Monica Canducci

About: Motor Imagery can be a precious tool for all bodyworkers who want to integrate sensory-motor imagery in their practice and/or adapt and improve their skills in order to work remotely. Specific protocols and a series of guided movement explorations can both increase the effectiveness of in-person sessions and enable Structural Integration practitioners to provide online one-on-one and group sessions.

In fact, specific sensory-motor imagery applied to movement and self-massage can be used by Structural Integration practitioners to activate their clients’ proprioceptive, interoceptive, and motor neural networks, promoting the achievement of new skills both perception and coordination-related all while working remotely.

Mobilizing Joints of the Shoulder Girdle
Presented by: John deMahy

About: When joints of the Shoulder Girdle are pushed beyond their functional ROM a protective reflex restricts joint movement. This can easily cloud your fascial assessment, wasting time, and decreasing the outcome of your session. In the webinar, you will learn an algorithm for systematically assessing and mobilizing the Sternoclavicular, Acromioclavicular, and Glenohumeral joints. Functional ROM is quickly established, pain and inflammation are reduced, and remaining fascial work becomes much more apparent.

Assessing for Sleep Disordered Breathing
Presented by: Jeffrey Burch

About: Twenty percent of the population has some form of sleep apnea or closely related conditions (SDB). The proportion of people with chronic pain who have SDB is much higher. The low oxygen levels and sleep disturbance of any form of SDB damages tissue contributing to chronic pain. SDB has many other negative health effects. The ongoing tissue damage works against what we are trying to accomplish with SI. The clinical presentation of SDB is highly variable. Learning to recognize the signs of SDB and referring clients for testing and treatment leads to greater client health and comfort and greater success toward the goals of SI.
