Collection: SomaTherapy Courses

Welcome to the SOMATHERAPY Program – Your Gateway to Manual Therapy Excellence

Unlock the secrets of manual therapy with SOMATHERAPY, a specialized program meticulously crafted to target the human fascial system. Rooted in osteopathic principles and enriched by Guy Voyer’s groundbreaking research, our curriculum blends clinical expertise with anatomical insights to offer a transformative learning experience.

Program Overview:

  • Fascial Focus: Delve deep into the intricate world of fascial dynamics, guided by Voyer's pioneering studies and clinical wisdom.

  • Fluid Flow Normalization: Master the art of normalizing fluid flow within fasciae and joints, essential for enhancing overall mobility and functionality.

  • Comprehensive Curriculum: Embark on a journey of discovery with our 13 meticulously designed courses. Each course, presented in a 3-day workshop format, offers a comprehensive exploration of manual therapy techniques.

1. OSTEO-ARTICULAR/JOINT PUMPING

Dive into the core of SOMATHERAPY with osteo-articular/joint pumping techniques. Learn to facilitate fluid movement within the joint complex, empowering the body to manage acute inflammation effectively. In a chronically painful and tight joint, osteo-articular pumping moves stagnated fluid to improve mobility and functionality.  Osteo-Articular/Joint Pumping is the foundation of the SomaTherapy program.

1.1. OA Pumping of the Lower Limb    

 1.3. OA Pumping of the Trunk & Pelvis 

1.2. OA Pumping of the Upper Limb & TMJ 

 

2. FASCIAL NORMALIZATION

Explore the intrinsic qualities of fasciae and unravel the interconnectedness of fascial chains. Fascial chains can include direct links where there is a traceable continuity of the same tissue throughout the kinetic chain as well as indirect links where contiguity, being immediately adjacent, of fascial tissue has a significant influence on the function of the chain.
Water is constantly being linked and unlinked to glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans in the extra cellular matrix. Discover the vital role of water dynamics in maintaining fascial health and overall bodily function.

2.1. FN of the Lower Limb    

2.2. FN of the Upper Limb & TMJ   

2.3. FN of the Trunk & Pelvis 

3. TRANSVERSE TENDINOUS & LIGAMENTOUS "STRETCHING" (2TLS)

Harness the power of 2TLS techniques to correct muscle, tendon, and ligament dysfunction. Gain insights into the sensory functions of tendons, ligaments, and muscles, and learn to optimize mechanical tension for improved outcomes.
2TLS' focus is to normalize mechanical tension in a contracted or shortened ligament, tendons and muscles by creating a temporary inhibition in their protective mechanism.

3-1. TTLS of the Lower Limb

3-2. TTLS of the Upper Limb & TMJ  

3-3. TTLS of the Trunk & Pelvis 

 

4. THE 4 DIAPHRAGMS 

Gain mastery over the four main diaphragms of the body and understand their pivotal role in maintaining fluid dynamics and hormonal balance. The relational balance between them normalizes the pressures and movement of all venous, arterial and lymphatic fluids, thus, hormonal functions.
The diaphragm series explore how the thoracic, pelvic, cervico-thoracic and cranial diaphragms manage tension, expansion and compression in the head, thorax, abdomen and pelvis leading to a complete tensegrity model of the body. 

4.1. Thoracic Diaphragm: The fundamental muscle of respiration, but also one of the main muscles of the body with multiple fascial relations with all the abdominal, thoracic and pelvis viscera. 

4.2. Cervico-Thoracic Diaphram: Both vertical (Stylian diaphragm) and horizontal (Bourgery diaphragm), the Cervico-thoracic diaphragm has a role in both the posture of the cervical spine and the stability of the shoulder girdle. It is also related to the larynx, pharynx and thyroid. 

4.3. Pelvic Diaphragm: The stability of the pelvis, and therefore of the entire spine, depends on the stability of the perineum. This diaphragm manages the entire urogenital system. It is also is the floor of all the viscera of the body. During pregnancy and childbirth, the quality of its function is fundamental.

4.4. Cranial Diaphragm and Concussion: This roof of the body protects and connects the brain and the spinal cord. The movement of cerebrospinal fluid within the cranial ventricles must be normalised. Whatever the cause, sports or accidental, the treatment of concussions requires the rebalancing of the cranial diaphragm.
