It may surprise you to learn that some of the hard and tender knots we've furiously been working on are actually tethered, swollen, and  inflamed nerves. This introductory lecture class will introduce you to the research and concepts behind neurofascial manipulation—working directly with the nerves and superficial fascia to restore mobility and decrease pain. Nerves control tissue tone, while tethered and overstretched nerves create pain and inflammation. Direct engagement of the neurofascia and skilled use of neural mobilization techniques can dramatically increase your level of results and set you apart. 

In this introductory lecture class, we will discuss concepts of neurogenic inflammation, ectopic firing, central sensitization, and fibromyalgia. The work is based in part on concepts from JP Barral, Alain Crobier, and Don Hazen, DC. You will learn how tethered cutaneous nerves contribute to shoulder, neck, and arm pain. We will also learn to slow down, refine our touch of the superficial layers and self-palpate several nerves in the arm and wrist. This class will provide you with a basic theoretical understanding of neurofascial work, and prepare you for Steve's neurofascial technique classes.

Instructor: Steve Evanko, PhD, Certified Advanced Rolfer (WA license #MA12182)
Stephen Evanko has practiced in Seattle for 18 years. He received his PhD in 1993 from the University of New Mexico, where he studied the biological properties and biochemistry of connective tissues. When he first experienced Rolfing in 1995, he was so impressed with the profound results that he decided to make Rolfing his new career. Steve currently has a full-time Rolfing practice in Seattle and serves part-time as a staff scientist at The Benaroya Research Institute in Seattle, where he studies the biological properties of connective tissue cells and extracellular matrix. He has conducted biomechanical studies on tendons and fibrocartilage and the tissue response to cyclic compression, and has published several peer-reviewed papers.
