January 2023 – Being Well Communications SEMINAR 3 – Beyond Palpation

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.

February/May/October 2023 – Being Well Communications SEMINAR 1 – The Belly

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 and pelvic 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 structural framework that holds the abdominal viscera and 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 return to improved 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

DATES: Saturday, February 11 / Saturday, May 6 / & Saturday, October 28, 2023 • 8:15 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
