VMAT: Advanced Visceral Components of the Neck and Thorax
VMAT September 26-28, 2025 Calgary, Alberta, Canada

"I really enjoyed the course, and I am eager to work with my patients tommorow at the VA. I feel that Alain is so clear when he is teaching that I get the information at a very core level." - J.A., MSPT


The workshop will present specific and advanced techniques and explain the anatomy, breathing mechanism, function and physiology of the thorax. The course will build on the knowledge of the thorax region as learned in VM4, review the myofascial structures of the thorax, explore the hyoid suspensory apparatus, thyroid, tonsils and pharynx, learn more precise techniques for the esophagus, pleura, heart and pericardium and demonstrate treatment techniques to enhance the breathing mechanism.
