OsteoThai for the Main Joints with David Lutt
21st - 26th June 2017
OSTEOTHAI FOR THE MAIN JOINTS
Easing joint mobility of the upper and lower limbs (ankle, knee, hip joint, shoulder, elbow and wrist)
The joint system is often forgotten in Thai massage. We work around the joint, mainly its tendinous system, but unfortunately, we don’t treat the joint itself. Osteopathy is then very helpful to release the energy blocked in the joints. Thus the energy released will help the patient’s body to gain vitality and to use it for a faster recovery. Asking for a more precise touch and a better understanding of joint biomechanics we will explore each joint of the lower and upper limbs. Movement and mobility, the real obsession of osteopaths, will be back, together with rhythm, coordination and joint integrity. This class will give you precise techniques and useful tools to treat and free joints such as ankle, knee, hip, shoulder, wrist or elbow.
