Being Well Communications SEMINAR 3 – Beyond Palpation: When you touch, what does the information you see and feel indicate, and how does this affect your therapeutic choices?

Dr. Verna Hunt, BSc, DC, ND, teaching hands-on seminars.

SEMINAR 3
Beyond Palpation: When you touch, what does the information you see and feel indicate, and how does this affect your therapeutic choices?

The skin is the largest organ of the body and rests upon subdermal and connective tissues. Practitioners with developed palpation and clinical observation skills can discern information about overall health and specific areas of concerns, from actual skin conditions to nutrient insufficiencies, and more.  Through skilled palpation, the practitioner can deliver types of treatment to the patient for their individual needs.

The key learning highlights of this manual therapy seminar are:

  • Palpation of the skin of all ages, gender, body types to determine health of the skin, temperature types, neurological responsiveness, signs of malabsorption and insufficiencies.
  • Assessing skin conditions for causative factors and determining manual treatment and external application therapies.
  • Various touch techniques to deliver specific therapeutic needs and results.
  • Review of skin and subdermal anatomy.
  • Ability to manually treat:
    • Scar tissue
    • Adhesion
    • Temperature re-regulation via touch affecting lymphatic drainage, neurological rebalancing and cranial-sacral breathing
    • Application of external therapies
    • Improving resolution of injuries: black eyes, bruises, swelling in external tissue due to surgery, sprains, falls (especially falling onto the hands, face and skull), etc.
