Event Description

Course Description
Releasing the intracranial meninges is an essential and very powerful application for conditions such as motor vehicle accidents, concussion, strokes, chronic meningitis, surgeries, chronic headaches as well as for cerebral palsy, ASD, etc. It can be a challenging endeavor to work on every fiber of the intracranial meninges in 3-D.

In this course, we will use a curved biotensegrity model with 23 labs to release the meninges of the cranium and spinal cord.

The change of tension inside the cranium will modify the tension in the thorax, pelvis and abdomen and, ultimately, the whole-body. This model has been effectively used for patients of all ages, from newborns to the elderly.
