Canine Myofascial Release: Indirect Deep Tissue Release and Cranial Applications

August 16 @ 9:30 am - August 17 @ 4:00 pm


This CPD for canine manual therapists provides tuition in the indirect approach to canine myofascial release.  This involves slow sustained pressure, working with the tissue and responses of the dog.  The methods taught are great for more sensitive dogs, tissue in strong spasm or that is very restricted, and where other methods are not successful. The effects are relaxing, yet effective and long lasting. The method also includes osseus releases; gently and safely realigning joints.  It will also include some myofascial cranial-sacral applications, plus discussion on the vagus nerve,  lymphatic system and associations with the acupressure meridian system.

The course is taught by animal musculoskeletal therapist; Jo Rose.  The course material includes the history of the method, a detailed look at fascia and its many functions, and what happens in dysfunction.  Much of the course is practical, enabling students to get a feel of fascia releasing, and how this benefits both body and the emotions.

Jo has worked alongside Dawn Seaman, helping to facilitate the equine and canine Myofascial Release CPDs for many years, and also has trained extensively in human Myofascial Release with MFRUK.  She has attended fascia training with Leon Chaitow and Robert Schleip, amongst others.  Jo uses Myofascial release as a primary method to release deep physical and emotional tension throughout the body and realign the structure.
