This course challenges several of the commonly held paradigms regarding the understanding and treatment of fascial tissue. In particular, it focuses on the often overlooked, yet critically important, role of loose connective tissue in the regulation of the health of the body.
Using a comprehensive theoretical approach and her practical experience with dissection and clinical practice, Jane explains, demonstrates, and supervises the practice of techniques applicable to connective using a fluidic, rather than a fibrous, approach to its normalization.
It will also be discovered that treating the loose connective tissue through the medium of fluid is often times reveals a patient’s emotional landscape.

Go with the Flow - Fluidic Approach to Fascia
Learn how to address the patient's fascia through a layered (rather than chain-like) approach
This workshop challenges several of the commonly held paradigms regarding the understanding and treatment of fascial tissue. In particular, it focuses on the often overlooked, yet critically important role of loose connective tissue, not only in giving and maintaining the fascia’s fibrous form, but more so in the regulation of the health of the body. A mix of theory and practice, this workshop offers participants the visual advantage of viewing slides of freshly (non-preserved) dissected connective tissue in conjunction with the kinesthetic application of their hands on their workshop partners.
Using a comprehensive theoretical approach, her practical familiarity with dissection of fresh tissue, and years of clinical experience as an osteopathic manual practitioner and certified athletic therapist, Jane explains, demonstrates, and supervises the practice of a variety of therapeutic treatment applications on connective tissue using a fluidic, rather than a fibrous, approach. A fluidic approach on fascial restrictions allows the individual’s tissues to release quite effortlessly with no discomfort. In addition to attaining a new set of immediately applicable therapeutic tools, participants will notice how a fluidic approach puts less strain on their own bodies and results in more permanent results.
