The three equine diaphragms and their role in whole body function CPD: A holistic approach to treatment
14th March 2024 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm£120
This CPD day with Osteopath; Sara Farina, explores the three diaphragms of the body (cervicothoracic, respiratory and pelvic) and how their function influences each other within the integrated body as a whole. The diaphragms are in constant movement, forming a pressure regulating mechanism for brain-body function. To practitioners, they provide an access point to affect the nervous system’s regulatory mechanisms and influence optimal wellbeing of the animal. This course will draw on evidence-based biomechanical principles, as well as osteopathic treatment theory to provide a holistic approach to the consideration, assessment and treatment of the three diaphragms.
£120 for the one day, or £200 for both the equine and canine CPDs.
