Palpating the Immune System: Exciting New Developments in the Immune Response Curriculum
Presenter: Tim Hutton PhD, LMP, CST-D
Like all other aspects of the body, the immune system moves in response to the craniosacral rhythm. However, since the immune system consists of a loosely distributed network of cells and molecules, it behaves differently than other tissues. Learn how to palpate and interact with this unique system of the body and how to map and treat inflammation directly. Several new more-specialized immune classes that are currently being developed will also be discussed.
