Course Overview
Instructors: Matt Callison and Brian Lau.

Each day of this webinar workshop is divided into distinct morning and afternoon sessions. The morning session consists of presentations on Functional Anatomy and Anatomy of the Sinew Channels. These lectures are integrated to focus on the functional relationship between neuromuscular anatomy and the myofascial jingjin tissues and their relationship to the lower extremity. This information is followed by the afternoon session that consists of: 1) Assessment Guidelines 2) Motor Point Location and Protocols, 3) Cadaver dissection presentation.

The information presented in this 2-day workshop will help the TCM practitioner to build a good foundation and to better understand the information presented in subsequent classes in this Module: Assessment and Treatment of the Channel Sinews and also Postural Assessment and Corrective Exercise (PACE) courses.
  • Learn lower extremity myofascial pathways that correlate with the classical sinew channels of TCM and the tissues belonging to each sinew channel with their functional anatomy relationship.
  • Learn in theory how to determine which my myofascial sinew channels need to be assessed and treated for musculoskeletal injury.
  • Learn normal and abnormal movement patterns of the lower extremity, ankle/foot complex and its relationship to the lumbo-pelvic-hip complex.
  • The practitioner will learn nerve pathways, dermatomal distributions and muscle myotomes in relationship to channel topography.
  • The practitioner will learn postural, functional and muscle imbalances that can lead to pain and dysfunction based on TCM theory.
