Stretching from head to pelvis, the visceral fascia is the most complex layer of fascia in the body and fundamentally involved with major vasculature, thoracic and abdominal systems. Learn to confidently examine and treat your patients viscero-fascial contributors to their pain or dysfunction in this course from osteopath Liz Howard.
You will practice a range of effective techniques and protocols that will enable you to confidently treat the supportive fascia of the thorax and abdominal viscera, including links to the musculo-skeletal system.
Exploring Visceral Fascia has a strong practical focus including treatment protocols (including patient education and self-management tools) that you can use immediately in your practice to improve patient outcomes.
This course follows Liz Howard’s popular Myofascial Release course which explores the functional anatomy and amazing properties of fascia and introduced assessment, protocols and techniques to address myofascial restrictions and contributors to pain. Completion of Myofascial Release is recommended for registration in Exploring Visceral Fascia.
Where possible both Myofascial Release and Exploring Visceral Fascia will be presented on the same weekend allowing attendance to both courses at a discounted rate.

Like you we've been considering what will happen as the COVID-19 situation evolves. With regards to upcoming Bower Bird courses we will be taking the advice of the government and medical experts.
We're all very keen that the courses go ahead but there is a chance one or more of them could be cancelled, possibly at the last minute. Please especially take this into account if you live outside the course city and would need to pre-book travel and accommodation.
If we are forced to cancel or postpone a course all attendees will be offered a full refund. But fingers crossed - lets all hope for the best.
