Releases for the Upper Extremities “Structure Governs Function” Class

'Structure Governs Function' is an Osteopathic principle that works with the understanding that when the musculo-skeletal system is balanced properly the functioning (blood, nerve, emotions, meridian) of the body will flow more efficiently.


This osteopathic principle has allowed me to help more of my clients out of pain than any other technique I have studied.


The Releases for the UPPER EXTREMITIES ‘Structure Governs Function’ CLASS uses Osteopathic-based gentle body positions and movements to stimulate self-correcting reflexes within the muscles and nerves. These responses can move the client out of pain and discomfort within 10-30 seconds. This method is very specific and structure-oriented.


The Releases for the UPPER EXTREMITIES ‘Structure Governs Function’ CLASS will focus on painless releases of the muscular skeletal patterns for the:

1.      Shoulders

2.      Clavicles

3.      Scapula
