Course Description

(This course Corresponds to former VM1A)

In this four day course, participants will learn an integrative approach to evaluation and treatment of the structural relationships between the viscera, and their fascial or ligamentous attachments to the musculoskeletal system. Strains in the connective tissue of the viscera can result from surgical scars, adhesion, illness, posture and injury. These strains can create fixed, abnormal points of tension that the body must move around, and this chronic irritation gives way to functional and structural problems. In VM1, participants will study the models and theories of functional biomechanics as viewed from Jean-Pierre Barral's innovative approach.

Course Outcomes

Upon completion of this course, participants will have learned:

  • The manual skills to locate, evaluate and normalize primary areas of dysfunction within the abdominal cavity;
  • The dynamics of motion and suspension in relation to organs, membranes & ligaments;
  • The relationship of organs and structural or neuro musculoskeletal dysfunction;
  • How to assess the quality of functional activity & somatic structures as relates to an overall pattern.

Prerequisite: Professional healthcare practitioner, student in healthcare program or graduate awaiting license/accreditation with experience in manual therapy.

Rosie Greene has been in private clinical practice since 2002, initially as a Remedial Massage Therapist in New Zealand, after changing professional direction, from her first passion of teaching. She then continued her clinical education through courses offered through the Barral and Upledger Institutes in New Zealand, Australia and the USA, which significantly broadened her skill and interest base. These studies included training in Visceral, Vascular, Neural Manipulation and Manual Articular techniques, as well as CranioSacral Therapy.

Rosie maintains an extensive clinical practice treating both adults and children, who present with a very broad spectrum of clinical presentations ranging from the elite athlete to gastro-intestinal and pelvic conditions, from post-surgical to post trauma conditions, amongst many others. Rosie enjoys the challenges that this wide range of patients presents, and utilizes her extensive training in her approach to treating these patients.

In 2010 Rosie was invited to be a Teaching Assistant at courses teaching the Barral Visceral Manipulation curriculum, and has since assisted across the breadth of the Barral Institute curriculum, both locally and overseas. She also runs study groups in New Zealand and Australia. In 2015 Rosie became a Certified Visceral Manipulation Instructor for the Barral Institute, and now teaches VM1 and VM2 in New Zealand, Australia and internationally. Rosie is the eternal student herself, whilst now also greatly enjoying using her teaching skills to open the door to the world of visceral manipulation for an increasing number of practitioners.
