This two-day intermediate course will allow the practicing pelvic rehab therapist to develop and refine immediately applicable palpation and myofascial treatment skills. This course is intended for the pelvic rehab therapist who may be new to palpation and manual therapy techniques, or who want to refine their skills of discriminate touch. This is also an excellent course for the practitioner who recently took the beginner or intermediate courses of the Pelvic Floor Series and would like a refine hands on skills with a more lab-intensive course. 

In this course, we will build and add to the skills learned in the Pelvic Floor Series curriculum, while allowing time and giving guidance for each participant to build their individual skills in treating pelvic rehab clients. A brief review of anatomy and evaluation is included but we will spend the majority of our time utilizing and refining our hands on myofascial assessment and treatment skills. This course includes external techniques of the abdomen, pelvis and thigh regions and internal vaginal and rectal mapping and treatment. The participant will also further develop the ability to adapt a treatment approach to a specific patient’s needs (such as positioning for IC/PBS, endometriosis, vulvodynia, nerve sensitivities) and build home programs.

A deepened understanding of the myofascial system and its functional roles within the genito-urinary and gastrointestinal systems will be gained at this intermediate continuing education course. This course may be taken in conjunction with other manual therapy courses and provides an overview of a variety of techniques and practical applications.
