Zoom Class Dates

As international air travel is still not possible and due to the many requests we have for us to teach you AoB, we are delighted to offer you the opportunity to learn Art of Bodywork for the very first time via LIVE Zoom conferencing.

These two hour live classes offer you the chance to ask questions, review material as many times as you need and for me to provide you with further explanations of the work with some additional up-to-date additions to the work. Multi-camera angles ensures you’ll see everything – just as if you were right in class with us!

We have also discounted the total price of these tutorials by around 30% which makes the two hour Zoom meeting a very cost-effective way to learn these Art of Bodywork techniques but please bear in mind there are a limited number of places available on each class.

We offer the classes in 2 time zones – choose whatever works best for you. You also have the opportunity to purchase an additional ONE MONTH access time to all three tutorials from our library, commencing immediately after the class.

Live, online classes have become THE way to learn new skills and improve our clinical outcomes.

Many practitioners focus on a short leg when the pelvis appears out of balance. Anteriorly rotated pelvis (producing a functional long leg) is often not considered at all! How to spot the difference? We show you how to assess and correct the anteriorly rotated pelvis. Useful for lumbar lordosis and back pain.

Indications for use:

  • Low back pain
  • Lordosis
  • Leg length difference
  • Pelvic balancing
  • Sacro-iliac joint dysfunction
    Non-resolving hip, knee or foot pain

There are TWO applications for this work:

Indications for Method 2:

  • Lymph or venous congestion of thigh

Dysfunction of the ankle joint is a major factor in muscular-skeletal problems and creates undesirable knock-on effects throughout the body.

The feet are the foundation upon which the human body stands and contacts the earth. Smooth and full articulation of the ankle joint is essential for good mobility and ease when walking or engaging in sports activities for example.

Treat both ankles if they are found to be restricted in any way.

Indications for use:

  • Tension and restriction of ankle joint articulation
  • Reduced or restricted circumduction of the foot
  • Ankle problems
