Nerve Mobilization for Structural Integrators with Kirstin Schumaker
Kirstin is an excellent teacher and a friend. She is offering classes around the globe and is worth checking out!
Here is her bio and upcoming offerings please visit her site for more information…
My initial study of neural manipulation was with Christoph Sommer (2006, 2009) and Don Hazen (2007-2008). I also assisted Jon Martine with his neural mobilization classes (2009-2010), when he came through my home town. (Of these three teachers, Jon’s style of working with the peripheral nerves is closest to what I do in my own practice.) More recently (2011-2012), I have studied intensively with Jeffrey Burch. With Jeff I have primarily studied visceral manipulation and osteopathic methods, but I’ve also picked up some of his tricks for working with nerves and arteries. (Yes, the artery network is a whole new frontier! Similar to, yet different from, working with the neural net.)
My structural integration practice is now based on what I am calling “neurally informed” myofascial work. I can no longer not pay attention to nerves (and arteries) as I work with the myofascia. This advanced SI work is amazingly efficient, and it is very fun to teach.
