This course really builds on the visceral basics – getting you to understand many aspects of visceral pain, vagal dynamics, mindfulness, breathing, body mapping and problems with scars and adhesions.  It helps you appreciate all the adjuncts and approaches necessary when dealing with a variety of visceral dynamics and begins to illustrate how to approach some visceral conditions . help in their management.   It goes into many aspects of the osteopathic medicine approach, looks at potential for healthcare contribution across a range of healthcare presentations, and despite the fact that osteopaths ‘look for health, not disease’ it is still vital to understand the science behind complex health challenges and how physiology and homeostasis, movement and anatomy all converge to enable the person to function at their best.
