Event Description

Course Description
This course is designed to enhance attendees’ palpatory skills (tissue texture, asymmetry and restriction of motion of both somatic and visceral interconnected structures); enhance knowledge of related somatic/visceral anatomy with fascial continuity via traditional Chinese medicine energy channel mapping; and provide a framework for cross-organ symptomatology and somatic dysfunction, bridging gaps between internal medicine subspecialties and neuromusculoskeletal medicine. 

Prerequisite
Registrants should have completed a basic cranial course and have a grounding in ligamentous articular strain and visceral techniques.

Course Times
Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Sunday from 8 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.

Course Director(s)

John P. Tortu, DO, graduated from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2000. In early 2009 he discovered the VisceroSomatic Release (VSR) concept and presented the initial concept at the AAO’s 2014 Convocation in Colorado Springs. Since then, Dr. Tortu has presented the VSR concept to a number of osteopathic residency programs in Michigan and Texas. Over the past 10 years, the VSR concept has grown to become a comprehensive diagnostic and treatment method that is predictive of visceral dysfunction by somatic clues and somatic dysfunction by visceral clues. Effortless treatment is accomplished at both the local somatic dysfunction and the underlying visceral dysfunction, simultaneously affecting all structures that follow the associated traditional Chinese medicine energy channel.
