BLT 2 will focus on the non-arthrodial 'joints' with a lecture on fascia and techniques for the anterior fascias for the neck and thorax, the lymphatic system, liver, and abdomino-pelvic structures including the pelvic floor.

Our approach to learning

Our courses are designed from start to finish with the goal of maximising your learning outcomes and encouraging self-reflective practice. We are passionate about progressing the palpation of every person who attends our courses. We do this by engaging tutors who have completed our tailored Assistant Tutor Program, and ensuring the ratio of the tutor to the practitioner remains very high, in almost all cases it is 1:4 or 1:6 ratio (meaning one practitioner is monitoring only 2 or 3 students at a time during practical sessions which allows very personal feedback) 

This approach is evident in our high tutor to student ratios, enabling us to tailor the learning journey to your capabilities and strengths. Many of our in-person courses include times where you experience the treatment and times where you give the treatment.

From checklists and templates you can use in your practice, to detailed lecture notes - you'll come away with all the tools you need to put your learning in action.
