The Equine Fascial Kinetic Lines & Points Treatment Days

August 24 to 26, 2018 · Bingen and Waldalgesheim, Germany 

In cooperation with Tierklinik Binger Wald

This course will show the participants the importance of understanding fascia, its 3-D network, the identification of fascia restrictions and the use of the kinetic lines and points release technique to restore locomotion and body balance. The theoretical part of the course will go through fascia in general: superficial and profound fascia, embryology, anatomy and histology as well as myofascial kinetic lines in horses following the human model of Thomas Myers. Thereafter, fascia dysfuntion and its influence on biomechanics both in the spine and the limbs will be emphasized. The treatment modality that will be demonstrated and practiced in this course by the participants is the Myofascial Kinetic Lines Release technique. CE accreditation by ATF (Akademie für Tierärztliche Fortbildung) will be seeked!
