Course Description:

In this webinar, we continue to explore the thoracic outlet and roots of the Arm Lines. Kier will be leading you through a self-treatment approach that you could also use in working with clients. We will start by finding greater freedom in neck rotation through movement and palpation of the supraclavicular and accessory nerves that are associated with trapezius and SCM. Then we will continue to improve lateral flexion and rotation of the neck through gentle release of the artery network supplying trapezius, rhomboids, levator scapula, and scalenes. Next Kier will introduce the intercostobrachial nerves, a useful handle for working with restriction at the cervicothoracic junction. We will also touch in on the medial and ulnar nerves, and then will wrap up our tour of the thoracic outlet with a short review of the brachial plexus techniques previously introduced in the webinar From Heart to Hands Part 1. Finally, we will wrap up with an integrative neurovascularly-informed stretching strategy for further opening of the Arm Lines from the roots to the tips of the branches.

Instructor Biography:

Kieran has been practicing bodywork for sixteen years, and completed her ATSI training in 2005. Since then she has studied visceral manipulation and specialized in neural mobilization, which she incorporates in her SI practice and teaches to colleagues. Kieran served for three years as editor for the IASI Yearbook of Structural Integration. She has had several articles on SI theory and technique published in the Yearbook, and she writes blog-length articles about anatomy and stretching for clients. Her education in the sciences and a history of involvement in martial arts, other sports, dance, and yoga provide the background for her ongoing study of anatomy and movement. Her practice Agile Body Structural Integration is located in Portland, Oregon.
