There is a wide held belief in manual therapy that vertebral pain is solely generated and maintained by local tissues.
In this workshop Jean-Pierre will introduce his findings that spinal conditions have also whole person, systemic, sensory, visceral and emotional causes. The participants will learn new testing methods and treatment approaches that address the wider contributing factors and their interaction with local spinal tissues and their influence on compensatory/adaptative responses.

The eyes
The ears

The lungs
The head (intra and extra cranial)
The neurovascular system

Also explore relationship with other joints such as:
The shoulders
The other part of the spine
And even the feet
