>> B³ Advanced Course Overview
A core objective of the course is to develop an advanced understanding of Myofascial tension as one of the most common causes of pain. Those completing this course will be able to define functional pain patterns, i.e. a pain pattern that related to neuromuscular imbalances. The Activation Course will have taught you the fundamentals of B³ theory and application techniques with a focus on the major muscle groups. The Advanced Course is designed to leverage off this existing knowledge by teaching in-depth theories and practices:
- The role of myofascia , the medical science of trigger points and the application of B³ signal pulse to release pain, stress and neuromuscular blockages in the body;
- Myofascial tension as one of the most common causes of pain: related symptoms and factors;
- Practical application to key areas and related anatomical study.
- Identify anatomical myofascial lines (how muscles and connective tissue interlink from head to toe)
- Understanding how specific pain patterns can be referred from distal blockages; mapping of pain patterns and possible site of B³ application to release specific ailments and injuries.
>> How this course is arranged
Headaches, upper back and neck pain, lower back pain and hip pain are of the most common pain syndromes encountered in the B³ private practice. As you move through this course you will learn how these are related to each other and how muscular problems can play a very significant role in pain. For long term relief, major blockages and disturbances in the myofascial system need to be released. In order to do so effectively, the Advanced Course covers the finer details in maximizing efficacy of the B³ application.
Module 1 >> Theory
The first part of the course offers background information on myofascial blockages and trigger points and why it is important to treat pain as soon as possible. It describes the various types of pain, discusses their causes and how myofascial trigger points can be involved in each type of headache.
Module 1 identifies the factors that are important to a particular set of symptoms. Many factors cause deep myofascial blockages and keep trigger points activated, e.g.:
- Poor posture
- Poor ergonomics
- Chronic and acute illness
- Emotional factors
- Poor diet
(These will be addressed in conjunction with self-help techniques for clients to apply).
Module 2 >> Practical
This part provides instructions for locating the muscles that might contain the myofascial blockages and will teach the student how to apply B³ Signals to these points, as well as:
- Detailed Signal Point application guidelines to myofascial lines (muscles that connect in lines through fascia e.g. from heel to head or hand to neck) and deep stabilizing fascia
- Myofascial blockages that contribute to headaches or TMJ pain, knee and foot pain, lower back pain and curvatures of the spine such as scoliosis and kyphosis
- Lists and maps of common symptoms for specific blockage points and pain patterns
- Helpful hints and self treatment techniques for clients
