The Upper Thoracic Aperture

Instructors: Juan David Velez

Organizational Host: Charlene Yeh

Credits:  22

Course Description:

In this class, we will explore the territory of the Upper Thoracic Aperture and the significance of this area to both structural and functional patterns in the rest of the body. While the focus will be narrowed to this territory for practical reasons, the class exploration and discussions will be global, in alignment with the kind of thinking and strategizing required for advanced work. You can expect to gain a more clear understanding of the anatomy and how it can inform our interventions. Our exploration, however, will go beyond the standard bio-mechanical paradigm, and we will venture into the current scientific understanding of body perception, the role of cortical maps, pain science and other ideas that are enriching our understanding of how is it that our work works.
