Course description of VVML:

This course explores evaluation and treatment techniques for the vascular system of the body.

  • Review the anatomy and physiology of the vascular system, particularly how arteries dilate or diminish in diameter depending on the function of the body.
  • Understand how compression along vascular structures creates restriction patterns and pain.
  • Learn to locate and release restrictions along the vascular structures using direct techniques on the arteries like compression, decompression and elongation.
  • Explore manipulation of the soft tissues of the arteries of the lower body such as the hepatic, splenic, femoral and popliteal.
  • Enhance your understanding of how increased blood circulation to an organ improves function of the viscera, and learn how to improve the blood circulation to organs, directly and/or indirectly.
  • Learn treatment of the vaso-pressive system and the brain.
  • Discover the research done with doppler ultrasound to determine the best mobilizations of the arteries to improve local and general blood circulation.
  • Understand Barral’s view of the knee as a ‘neurological joint,’ and the way to restore intelligence through improved blood flow.
  • Learn invaluable techniques to use after trauma and post-surgery – when conventional musculoskeletal techniques give limited pain and functional relief.
  • Discover the role of the vascular system in treatment post-pelvic, hip and knee surgery.
  • Learn practical integration of vascular treatment into the therapeutic session.
