Muscle Management® for Balancing the Core
Core balance affects everything.
Homeostasis and Balance:
One of the foundational and continual component functions within biological systems is to maintain relatively constant conditions within its internal environment while continuously interacting with and adjusting to changes originating within or outside the system.
In response to environmental factors, including gravity, homeostasis includes continuous motion, adaptation, and change as the body’s answer to life’s constant changes.
It is through the body’s homeostatic mechanisms that:
These are but a few examples of the thousands of homeostatic control systems within the body. Some of these systems function within the cell, and others operate within an aggregate of cells (organs) to control the complex interrelationships among the various organs.
“Imagine the body as a tightrope walker, with its many muscles making small adjustments right and left, backwards and forwards, in order to maintain an upright balance.
Any small deviation from this sometimes-fragile equilibrium can accumulate and contribute over time to a functional difficulty.”
Jacques Descotes, former President of the French Osteopathic Association (AFDO).
The foundation of the information presented in this class originates from Taum's studies with Lauren Berry RPT and Structural Engineer.
This included assisting him in teaching his classes, assisting him in his clinic in Redding, and practicing/teaching The Berry Method® for over 40 years.
One of the basic premises of Lauren's work is that the body’s core balance influences homeostasis and oftentimes, when the core is out of balance, corrections to other parts of the body will not last. Additionally, by reducing the core soft tisssue tensions and imbalances, the body’s innate self-repair mechanism functions more efficiently.

This class focuses on balancing the soft tissue components that actively influence a healthy and functional state of ease.
Techniques include soft tissue manipulation and targeted stretching to effectively address some of the bodies core imbalance issues.
Get ready to explore the workings of the bodies core....
Techniques and protocols will be presented that include:
These classes include both a regional and a specific in-depth precision focus on the appropriate anatomy. Techniques to locate, stretch, correct and manipulate specific soft tissue will be presented, practiced, and reviewed...all with a PowerPoint image to aid your 'tactile vision' as you focus and practice.
Topics and techniques includes:
Possibly one of Lauren Berry's greatest contributions to Massage therapy was in recognizing that muscles, tendons, and ligaments have an optimal anatomical position and can be shifted off that position via trauma, adaptation, etc.
Through recognizing, respecting and responding to that functional organization, therapists can often reduce tension and pain rather quickly. Often times it is a simple matter of putting the tissue back where it belongs.
