Connecting the head to the pelvis and beyond, the visceral fascia is one of the most complex fascias in the body and fundamentally involved with distributing the major neurovasculature to the thoracic, abdominal and pelvic systems. Learn to confidently examine and treat visceral fascia contributors to pain or dysfunction in this course from osteopath Liz Howard.
You will practice a range of effective techniques and treatment models 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 models (patient education and self-management tools) that you can use immediately in your practice to improve patient outcomes.
This course follows on from Liz Howard’s Myofascial Release or Myofascial Release Online course which explores the functional anatomy and amazing properties of fascia and introduces assessment, protocols and techniques to address myofascial restrictions and contributors to pain.

It had heaps of relevant information which was delivered in a really easy to understand and enjoyable manner. Liz was a fantastic presenter and the printed course notes were a huge help. I found the case studies really useful as they were helpful in terms of understanding how the fascial techniques could be applied and also from the note-keeping perspective.
Liz is by far one of my favourite presenters. She is down to earth and very approachable but has such a wealth of knowledge and experience and a great way of distilling and presenting information. The content was perfectly contained, with just the right amount of material to come away with something to use straight away and not feel overwhelmed.
The courses are always a really reasonably price, which I appreciate. The online content was well presented and easy to watch.

The information was imparted with clarity and ease. The group was small, which made for a fully engaged learning experience.
Liz is a wonderful teacher. She doesn't come from a place of ego-driven boasting, which many presenters do, but communicates well and shares her knowledge generously.
It was a fabulous course which I thoroughly enjoyed and have put to good use in my daily practice.
