Survival is the ultimate focus of our body’s systems in order for us to fulfill our life’s purpose and guarantee procreation/evolution. The heightened state of fight or flight causes the ‘stress cascade’. Understanding the brain as an electric system and understanding the nuclei that are involved with the stress cascade gives us the opportunity to release their static electricity - also known as trauma. Sat-Tues, Aug 29-Sept 1, 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Instructor: Etienne Peirsman. (29 CEUs, PDAs, CMEs)

When treating sport and work related injuries, understanding the concept of the spine, innervating spinal segments, channel relationships and the role of vertebral fixations and facilitated segments contributing to musculoskeletal injury is crucial. It is imperative for the practitioner to understand that there is a segmental relationship with the spinal cord, the organs (zang fu) and the myofascial tissues that can support health or be adversely affected by their inherent neural and meridian interrelationship. When pathology exists in one area, all tissues associated along the neural pathway will be affected, not unlike the organ and channel relationship where pathology in one ultimately affects the other. Sat-Sun, Sept 19-20, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Instructor: Eric Raymond Buckley. (14 PDAs)
