Fascia and peritoneum make up envelopes that provide immune and mechanical protection for their contents. These wrappers facilitate harmonious gliding between structures. Surrounding fibers are arranged in precise and logical directions, as a function of their various mechanical purposes. In addition, fibers conduct electromagnetic waves and play a significant nutritional role for the elements they encompass.

Peritoneal and fascial fibers intertwine at certain well-defined intersections in the body. These crossroads help configure and protect the adjoining of limbs, where arteries, nerves, muscles and tendons naturally change direction.

At the viscera, intertwining fibers are mainly found where two organs meet, where any sort of excretory pathway connects to an organ, and as structures pass though or attach to the diaphragm.

While peritoneal and fascia fibers are naturally thicker at these locations, they can become fibrotic following surgery, infection or trauma. In such instances, neurovascular and visceral systems are at risk of compression.

This seminar provides an inventory of the most superficial and accessible of these intersections, and the neurovascular bundles that go through these strategic locations. Specific tensions can be released with precise techniques.

We will study the following crossroads:

  • Cranio cervical
  • Cervical thoracic
  • Axillary
  • Intrathoracic
  • Diaphragmatic
  • Abdominal
  • Abdominopelvic
  • Inguinal
  • Intrapelvic
  • Popliteal

Evaluation is performed by listening tests and pulse taking.

Treatment involves induction technique for the peritoneum, pleura, fascia, arteries, nerves and veins.


VM1 and VM2

This advanced level workshop will teach the most important fascial and peritoneal crossroads where nerves, arteries, veins and lymph canals have the risk to be compressed in case of retraction, fibrosity due to surgery, accidents, hormonal dysbalance and systemic diseases.
