Despite the fact that I am biased, I would say that if you work with any kind of bodywork techniques then YES! Any approaches that call for us to listen to where we are pulled in the body and be specific in how we our respond to that pull can benefit from an ever increasing understanding of the anatomy. Of course it is a lifetime’s learning but this will give you a definite boost!
Because of the structure of the programme and the hands-on nature of much of it, both relative beginners and more studied participants say they have really benefited from the information – whatever you need, it takes you to your next level.
An excellent 3 days! I am now much clearer in 3D terms and have much more inspiration for finding ways to learn this stuff. You were a delight to be with as usual. I love your approach to teaching, you deliver your stuff with no fuss and a sense of much needed humour.’
‘Your enthusiasm was really motivating. Well worth the money!’
‘I was a little nervous about going into the lab having never done nor seen anything like it before, but I was impressed with the dignity and respect shown. It wasn’t gory or messy at all, and very interesting indeed. ‘
‘My greatest learning from the day was about my own naivety! Having only ever seen anatomy in biology text books or 3D models, I was amazed at how different the real thing is. Not orderly or colour coded at all! ”
This course will be presented by Caroline Barrow at
the London Bridge, Guy’s campus of King’s College University.
Please note the course is not affiliated to the university in any way.
10am - 5pm
Two days of theory looking at:
• the structure and function of neurons: what makes them fire, how they fire and what happens after they have fired
• interesting aspects of the structure of nerves as they exit and enter the spinal cord
• what information they are bringing to the central nervous system and from where
• an outline of the peripheral autonomic system and where these nerves run, especially the origin of parasympathetic supply and the sympathetic chain
• details of the cervical plexus
• the coolest way to learn the brachial plexus
• the major and minor off shoots of the lumbosacral plexus
• the names of the major peripheral nerves and the pathways they take in the body - what key nerves go next to, under, over and through!
• which structures are innervated by the major nerves & the pattern of innervations to skin, including myotomes and dematomes
10am - 3pm
Seeing it all for Real
All that will be followed by a day in the Dissection Room looking at the nerves we have learned about and the pathways the main ones take using pre-dissected specimens - in short as much as can be seen and absorbed.
