About the Workshop:

CORE Myofascial Therapy is a 48 CE certification course authored by George P. Kousaleos, founder of the CORE Institute, in Tallahassee, FL. The 6-day program focuses on intermediate training in structural integration techniques that improve the structural alignment of the human body while advancing functional abilities, respiration, flexibility, and reducing chronic pain. CORE Myofascial Therapists are taught client-education strategies that support the goals of the work while increasing the client/patient’s neurosomatic awareness.

The program is divided into two 3-day workshops, with CORE Myo 1 focusing on full-body techniques and treatment protocols, and with CORE Myo 2 focusing on specific treatments for key regions of the body. This certification course is also taught in a weeklong program at the XPECORE Sports Bodywork Mentorship.

CORE Myo 1 presents information on the theory and history of structural integration, the anatomy and physiology of fascia, body-reading strategies, and specific benefits of myofascial and structural therapies. The clinical protocols include full-body application of myofascial spreading, arthrokinetic joint techniques, detailed cervical, cranial, and facial techniques, and strategies for stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system while improving neurosomatic awareness.

CORE Myo 2 presents information on somatic psychology, client-education strategies, and specific techniques for intrinsic layers of fascia and musculature. Clinical protocols include the “Back Specific”, a deeper treatment plan for the paraspinal, scapula, sacrum, and iliofemoral regions. The “CORE Release” is presented to work with the floor of the pelvis, sacrotuberous ligament, and related ligaments of the lumbar, thoracic, and cervical spine. Also included is the “Foot Specific”, a treatment protocol for the fascia and musculature of the foot and ankle. The final day of CORE Myo 2 focuses on the integration of the CORE techniques in 30, 60, & 90-minute session strategies.
