Bio Therapeutic Manipulation of the Pelvis & Lower Abdomen

Giles Cleghorn Method and Training - The CMT™ Bio Therapeutic Manipulation of the Pelvis & Lower Abdomen

This three day course explores the Bio Therapeutic methods to treat the pelvic area and the organs of the lower abdomen.

Bio therapeutic manipulation™ is a refined technique formulated by Giles Cleghorn for the whole body. The method differs from other manipulative approaches, as it is ultra specific to the tissue, can cross all tissue boundaries, is simple, direct and gentle, requiring no thrusts at all. The manipulation extends to all soft tissues and fluids of the body.

Academics will cover:

  • The mechanics of the pelvis
  • Anatomy of the pelvic musculoskeletal system
  • The physiology of the pelvic organs
  • The energetics of the pelvic bowel
  • Function of the Liver in lower abdominal physiology

Practical sessions will have an emphasis on clinical application and include:

  • The action of the ilia on the sacrum
  • The action of the sacrum on the ilia
  • The pubis symphysis
  • The sacrococcygeal joint (external manipulation only)
  • The function and role of the inter pelvic ligaments
  • The pelvic floor
  • Bio therapeutic intraosseous decompression

Visceral techniques will include:

  • The uterine lift
  • The ovarian axis
  • Prostate expansion
  • The sigmoid colon
  • Rectal drainage

This course runs for 3 days, contributing towards ongoing CPD.
