About the course
Still Technique is described as the “application of the rediscovered techniques of Andrew Taylor Still” and is a system of osteopathic assessment and manipulative treatment from the USA which aspires to recreate the manipulations of the ‘Old Doctor’.
A cross between structural and functional techniques, it is an alternative or supplement to HVT techniques, when such approaches are inappropriate or ineffective. Fluent, dynamic and effective, the Still Technique takes in elements of positional diagnosis, manipulation, articulation and functional technique. Like HVT, it pushes against barriers to movement and creates a positive release. Unlike HVT, it is softer and more fluid and produces a gentle “clunk” – often much better tolerated by a wider range of patients. It is also applicable to every area of the body.
This 6 hour CPD workshop will introduce the theory and practice of Still Technique, and will focus on the lumbar spine, pelvis and 1st rib.
This course is followed by second course on 8 December 2019 which aims to build upon learning further. Delegates booking Part 1 & Part 2 together can do so at a discounted rate of £250 instead of £270.
