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

SEMINAR 4
The Upper Limbs & Thorax: How do compensations in the rib cage, its contents, and the upper limbs affect well being?

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.

The key learning highlights of this manual therapy seminar are:

  • Palpation techniques of the muscles, bones, connective tissues and fascia areas of the torso and upper limbs;
  • Assessing conditions for causative factors, including rotator cuff injuries, ‘frozen shoulder,’ carpal tunnel syndrome and elbow problems, thoracic spine, clavicle, ribs, sternum and more; determining manual treatment and external application therapies; Breast health assessment, breast drainage techniques for women of all ages;
  • Chest lymph drainage assessment and therapies for males and females of all ages;
  • External assessment of the diaphragm, lungs, breathing, heart, thymus and thoracic ducts.

(November 2019) Being Well Communications SEMINAR 1 – The Belly: What is going on in there?

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

SEMINAR 1
The Belly: What is going on in there?

People have various kinds of abdominal discomfort and they come to your office seeking relief. External manual palpation can reveal many things, including things not visible on x-ray or MRIs. There is often a lack of functional movement in the connective tissue and fascia and/or lack of movements of the various organs in the abdomen. External manual treatment can correct positioning and assist in function.

The key learning highlights of this manual therapy training seminar are:

  • Palpation of organs of all ages, sizes and body types to determine placements of organs, intrinsic motion and the influence of scar tissue in the abdomen.
  • Determine if the gastrointestinal tract valves are opening and closing correctly.
  • Ability to externally manually treat:
    • Hiatus hernia
    • Liver and gall bladder placement and function of associated ducts
    • Pyloric valve spasm
    • Sigmoid flexure jamming of the bowel
    • Ileocecal valve function
    • Uterine and fallopian tube problems
    • Optimizing lymphatic drainage of the abdomen
    • Assisting in moving out pockets of gas
    • Assisting in untwisting digestive tract
