Assessment and One Point Corrections via the Triangulation method with Louise Mauferon Vernet
June 4 @ 9:30 am - June 5 @ 4:00 pm£210
Louise Mauferon Vernet, manual therapist, has a busy equine practice in Sussex. She originally trained and qualified with the European School of Animal Osteopathy, where she focussed on the concepts and techniques of Cranial and Visceral Osteopathy.
Louise has a real passion for detail in assessment, enabling her to identify the core of dysfunction, which may be remote from the presenting issues. The triangulation technique enables her to focus specific release methods in to the priority area to effect long lasting changes.
In this CPD, aimed at any manual therapist, Louise shares the key method which has enabled this precise simple and effective approach. This has been influenced by her osteopathy training, development through further study and experience in practice.
Triangulation is a technique that can be used both as an assessment method and as a treatment method. The aim is to identify and release primary areas of visceral dysfunction through precise yet non invasive methods to improve biomechanical performance.
As an assessment method : it covers the whole body of the horse from a few specific points, in order to then refine the assessment and get to the core of the tension. Added to the palpation skills of a practitioner, it helps to step away from the obvious sites of tension, to instead look for the root cause of it, making sessions more effective and long lasting. It can be used both before starting the treatment and throughout the session to keep track of the global changes in the body. It develops the hand to feel for more subtle interactions, similar to craniosacral and visceral therapies.
As a treatment method : it uses increased slow pressure to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system alongside fascia and fluids. It can be used over joints or soft tissue, and allows for the body to rebalance and reorganise around the fulcrum created by the hands of the practitioner.
This 2 days course will be very hands on so that everyone gets to practice and familiarise themselves with the techniques. First day will be focused on theory and assessment method. Second day will be a review of the assessment method, and demonstration and practice of the treatment techniques.
