Therapeutic Thai and Osteo Retreat with Patrick
“Belly: Lumbar spine and Internal organs”
7th – 12th May 2019
This course is focussing on Osteo-and-Thai techniques to mobilize the lumbar spine, sacroiliac-Joint and internal organs of the digestive system (Liver, Stomach, Spleen, Pancreas, Small and Large intestine, 3 sphincters of the digestive system).
We discuss the interconnection between the lumbar spine and internal organs. We discuss diagnostic tools for trouble areas to improve our treatment plan. The participants can perfectly integrate the newly learned techniques into their existing routines.
