Being Well Communications Seminars, 2018–2019

The Upper Limbs & Thorax: How do compensations in the rib cage, its contents, and the upper limbs affect well being?

Toronto – Held at Viriditas Herbal Products, Ltd., 2775 Dundas Street West, Suite 101

The function of the thorax and its contents is key to a good quality of life, for without that the organs within (i.e. heart and lungs, etc.) could unknowingly deteriorate long before symptoms appear. Assessing for compromised function in the upper limbs, ribs, sternum, diaphragm, spine, clavicles, breathing patterns, heart and pulse rhythms, etc., long before pathologies arise is crucial. Dysfunction can be treated through manual therapies, along with other modalities, to improve and promote repair and restoration.

Connecting the Lower Limbs up into the Pelvis: What keeps a connection from lower limbs into the pelvis?

Toronto – Held at Viriditas Herbal Products, Ltd., 2775 Dundas Street West, Suite 101

Assuring that lower limb functionally lasts a lifetime depends upon the neuro-musculo-skeletal integration to the rest of the body, particularly the pelvis. When the pelvic floor and core muscles are not working in concert with the lower limbs, due to injury or pelvic organ dysfunction, the natural harmony of movement in spacial relationship to gravity decompensates resulting in joint deterioration, organ malfunction and metabolic stasis. Assessment and treatment of the connection between the lower limbs and pelvis begins at birth until the elder years, often beginning and ending with imbalance and many injuries in between. Manual therapies can alleviate and treat the cause to ensure optimal movement for a lifetime.



Registration for these seminars will be available about 2 months before the date.





“The Belly” seminar was replete with useful techniques and various resources on manual therapy and elder philosophy.

The course thoroughly prepared me to understand the in-depth application of lymphatic drainage as presented by Dr Verna Hunt.

Dr Verna Hunt was extremely professional, helpful, patient and generous in sharing her knowledge. I truly felt she was sincere, empathic and constantly encouraging us to learn. I have been using her techniques and my patients have noted improvements in their symptoms.

For all the above reasons, I highly recommend Dr Verna Hunt’s courses.

“The Head & Neck” seminar gave me tools that I can use immediately in clinical practice. I really liked the lymph work, which is so needed in my clinic. The seminar gave me hands-on, effective ways to find the problem areas in the body, and ways to immediately treat these issues for the patient. I especially found it useful to learn together in a smaller group of 15 participants, which allowed us to voice our concerns about certain clinical pictures that present in our clinics. This is the type of teaching that is so important in naturopathic medicine.

“The Head & Neck” seminar was one of the best I’ve done in years! The detailed anatomy review, course material, assessment techniques, and treatment instructions provided valuable take-home material that I am already referring to in clinical practice. However, the real MAGIC was getting off the paper and learning through my hands. This experiential learning is rare and irreplaceable, and there is no more skilled, experienced, and wise practitioner to watch and learn from than Dr. Verna Hunt.
