Module IV: Viscerofascial Systems

  • Viscerofascial Fulcrums (for the fascial envelope)

  • Biomechanical Viscerofascial Fulcrums (for the parenchyma): Type I, II, III Fulcrums 

  • Frozen Organ Syndrome 

  • Fascial Counterstrain: viscera, arteries, veins, lymph nodes and vessels

 

GASTROINTESTINAL:

  • Fascial Fulcrums for sphincters and stimulation of digestive enzyme production

  • Cardiac sphincter and Valve of Houston (stress and worry)

  • Fascial Compression Reflexes: TMJ, hyoid, thyroid and cricoid cartilage, tonsils, esophagus, digestive organs (stomach, small and large intestines, liver, spleen, pancreas) lymph nodes, arteries, veins, nerves and plexuses

  • Physiological motility: esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, liver, pancreas, spleen, sphincters

  • ANS Templates: jejunum integrity, ilium integrity, porous intestine, vagus nerve, liver function, Valve of Houston, micro-fascial damage and repositioning of the Valve of Houston / sigmoid /rectum/anus, diverticula, sigmoid and serotonin, sigmoid interface / portal system, liver interface / portal system, peristalsis, diarrhea, constipation, cecum integrity, anorectal sphincter integrity, neurogenic intestines, pathogens in sigmoid

  • Regulatory Reflex Points: vagus nerve, liver, valve of Houston, sigmoid colon, anus-rectal sphincter

 

UROGENITAL:

  • Fascial Fulcrums for the sphincters of the pelvic floor

  • Fascial Compression Reflexes for the pelvic floor: urogenital organs (bladder, prostate, uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, testicles, vas deferens, urethra ureters), ligaments, arteries, veins, nerves, nerve and arterial plexuses Functional exercises for pelvic floor reeducation

  • Physiological motility: kidney, ureter, bladder, uterus, prostate

  • ANS templates: neuro-lymphatic drainage of the pelvic floor, circulation of the pelvic floor, bladder integrity, thickening of the bladder wall, neurogenic bladder, fascial adhesions of coccyx to pelvic floor

  • Regulatory Reflex Points: ureter, prostate, uterus, cervix, ovaries, vas deferens

CARDIOVASCULAR & RESPIRATORY:

  • Fascial and positioning techniques to regulate blood pressure

  • Syndromes of the pulmonary veins, azygos veins and renal veins

  • Fascial Fulcrums for heart valves, SA node, AV node, Bundle of His

  • Pseudo-sphincters in the vascular system

  • Physiological motility: heart, lungs

  • NAS Templates: right/left atrium, right/ left ventricle, CO2 and 02, oxidative stress/mitochondria, atrium and ventricle integrity

  • Regulatory Reflex Points: mediastinum, lung capacity, O2 reflex center, CO2, alveolus, pleura, bronchiole, rib7pleura adhesion, brainstem / breathing
