VM1BC-3: VM1 Boot Camp for Your Hands: Part 3; Cecum, Sigmoid, AC, DC, Flexures and Transverse Colon
VM1BC-3 December 16-17, 2017 Chicago, Illinois

Teacher:

 

Description:
The series reflects its name! Students will be repeating standing position, hand position, loading techniques and retesting techniques. Each technique has been broken down into multiple parts and each part will be practiced until students' hands have memorized the feel of that movement. VM1 has been broken into 3 Boot Camp For Your Hands workshops. There will not be any lecture. The focus is entirely on VM1 techniques and is limited to 10 students. Students will have extensive one-on-one mentoring by the teacher.

In this series the labs will broken into 30 minutes for motility and 1-1.5 hours for mobility. Students do not need to take all 3 VM1 Boot Camps. The classes do not build on each other, so you can also take them in any order. The teacher is committed to helping students learn these techniques to the point that they become as easy as breathing and makes it easier to have visceral manipulation become your first choice of treatment for your patients.
