WHO should attend?   

Practitioners involved in a manual medicine specialty including, but not limited to: osteopaths, chiropractors, physical therapists, massage therapists, acupuncturists, physiotherapists, and athletic trainers.  One does not have to be one of the above named practitioners to take SomaTherapy training classes, but it is the student’s responsibility to know their scope of practice and local laws governing practice and use of these techniques.


WHY should I attend?

The description and treatment of the body’s fasciae is tremendously popular in today’s world of therapy and performance training (sport or health). 

A precise understanding of the anatomical, biochemical,  and histological constructs of the fasciae leads one to the awareness of the need for many types of treatment for the fasciae. 

In the VOYER paradigm, Osteo-articular Joint Pumping, Fascial Normalization andTransverse Tendonious & Ligamentous Stretching (TTLS)  are the three main techniques used to address the varied needs of the fasciae.

VOYER's treatment techniques target the three major parts of the fasciae: Fibers, Cells and Extra-Cellular Matrix (ECM).  A one size fits all approach to these three parts disrespects the complexity and primacy of fasciae as one of the four foundational tissue types in the body. An ill-timed or improperly chosen exercise or therapeutic intervention may not only be ineffective – it may even be harmful to the client/patient.
