Spine Physiology

Spine Physiology

Spine Physiology (5 days)

This course is an extensive system for getting into the various aspects of the Spinal Column, from a structural, postural and neurological point of view. Through a simple Formatting procedure, it is possible to test many structures of the Spine using Kinesiology.

This course is a valuable insight into the Structural aspect of the Health Triangle and is aimed not only at Kinesiologists, but also at those who already work on structural aspects (such as Osteopaths, Chiropractors, Physiotherapists) and want a new point of view and new tools to be even more precise in their work.

In the first 4 days, the students will learn to determine which vertebra are out of balance and what type of alteration is needed, following the three Fryette Laws (Vertebral Physiology Laws).

The students will be able to determine which ligament of the column is dysfunctional by looking at the 8 common ligaments, the 42 specific ligaments of some vertebrae

(costo-vertebral, sacrococcygeal or atlanto-occipital), and the 3 intrinsic ligaments of the medulla. Furthermore the students will be taught to test the 64 muscles that have the origin or insertion on the column (from C1 to the coccyx).

During the class we will also deal with topics that are generally not very known in kinesiology, such as Reciprocal Tension Membranes and Meninges. Finally, thanks to the study of the Central Aponeurotic Axis, the work will not be limited only to the Spine, but also to the fascial and visceral aspect.

Therefore, the knowledge acquired in this course will allow you to quickly determine the imbalanced structure, coming to identify very subtle aspects of the Spinal Column, which normally would require extreme diagnostic and manual skills. Once the area of dysfunction has been determined, the balance is restored, mainly through the stimulation of acupuncture points, but also with fascial maneuvers and through the technique called “Sound-thrust” which uses the frequencies generated by tuning forks.

This is an excellent system for those who do not have specific knowledge in the field of vertebral manipulation or to work on areas that are difficult to treat such as C1 or Coccyx or some deep ligaments. During the course, in addition to the theoretical part, ample space will be dedicated to the practical part, and furthermore, as teaching material, each student will receive the K-PHYSIS Structural 1 manual that includes more than 250 pages with digital color printing, which features unique designs of their kind, such as a single image for each of the 64 muscles and 42 ligaments, many of which, often, are not found even in the most titled and widespread atlases.

About Marco:

Marco Rado hails from the scenic town of Bergamo, in the Lombardy region of Italy. He began his kinesiology journey 30 years ago, utilising many modalities, in particular, Applied Physiology, which he studied in the USA and Germany.
With a passion for Traditional Chinese Medicine and manual therapies such as osteopathy and fascial manipulation. In 2003 he began writing his own courses, integrating Western Science and Traditional Eastern Medicine.

Marco is a respected international course author and trainer, integrating scientific concepts and theories with traditional energetic philosophies.  Not only does he teach in Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, Hungary and Ireland, but also in Russia, Ukraine, Australia and South Africa.

Together with his wife Monica, founded a professional school ‘Physis – International Institute of Kinesiology’ four years ago where he teaches Applied Physiology and all his own workshops and webinars.
