The Inside-Out Paradigm© Visceral Mobilization

The Progression of Gall Bladder Dysfunction/Disease

Dale G. Alexander PhD, MA, LMT

Dates: July 15 & 16, 2017

Credits: 16 NCB & Florida Approved CE hours

Location: Educating Hands Massage School

260 NE 17th Terrace, Miami, Florida 33132

On a moment to moment basis 60-80% our venous and lymphatic fluids are circulating “below the diaphragm muscle.” The heart/lung complex truly needs the timely return of these fluids to create freshly oxygenated and nutritious “new blood.” 

Recycling is not an abstract concept within the human body.

It is “the” essential reality.

Enhancing the production of life renewing and healing blood is central to how we assist our clients.

How often do your clientsʼ somatic problems relate to their shoulders, upper back, neck, mid or low back, left hip, sacroiliac joints, suffer with hemorrhoids or, consistently experience lower extremity aches and pains?

The Inside-Out Paradigm© invites you to consider that many of these clientsʼ musculoskeletal ailments have their origin in the progression of visceral dysfunctions of our human internal organs, especially the gall bladder as we age.

It has been estimated that 70% of the United States population over the age of 70 will develop gallstones. This progression does not happen overnight. Gallstones are estimated to take an average of 8-13 years to become symptomatically obvious and thus, medically diagnosed.

The average age of your clients seeking Massage Therapy is typically 35-70, exactly the range in which the gall bladder tends to become dysfunctional. This organ's progression from dysfunction toward disease is quite often at the root of your clients' chronic somatic complaints.

The Pancreatico-Biliary system (pancreas, gall bladder, and common bile duct) is considered to have more congenital anomalies than any other visceral system. This frequency pre-disposes them to many types of dysfunctions that are most likely incited by varying states of congestion including chronic inflammation, infections, and even cancer.

The reason that troubles associated with the gall bladder have such far reaching effects on physiology, somatic pain, and even movement capacity is that:

inflammation of any of these organs can result in systemic vascular congestion because they sit directly on top of the Inferior Vena Cava and the confluence of the lymphatic ducts, the Cisterna Chyli

neurological relationships become dis-coordinated resulting in the question, “who gets the blood?” becomes confused.

Compression, congestion, and dis-coordination of the nervous system is a construct I have pioneered among others. This course highlights how “congestion” is a pre-eminent variable that we can easily influence if we understand the bodyʼs elegance of design between anatomy and physiology.

In this course you will learn “touch skills” that enhance systemic circulation by normalizing the crucial pressure differentials between the bodyʼs three great cavities and by unraveling common obstructions to its inherent and natural flows.

Participants will leave this workshop with a more thorough understanding of "how the human body really works".

Course Objectives for the Workshop:

The anatomy and physiology of the gastrointestinal tract and the venous and lymphatic return systems will be reviewed.

The established referred pain patterns associated with the gall bladder, liver, and pancreas will be identified.

A thorough assessment sequence will be demonstrated and practiced.

Somatic markers will be clearly described for when referral to a physician is indicated. We are part of our clientsʼearly detection team.

The bodyʼs 2 central linkages that support the normal expansion of the heart and the lungs will be outlined and discussed.

Techniques will be presented and practiced to normalize venous and lymphatic drainage systemically and to enhance neurological outflow and balancing.

How gall bladder troubles may be related to other digestive ailments including hiatal hernia, diabetes, pancreatitis, irritable bowel syndrome, colitis and diverticulitis will be theorized.

Interviewing a client with chronic symptoms will be modeled and discussed. How our bodies reflect our chronic emotional states will be explored.

This course is open to massage therapists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, and movement therapists. All inquiries will be answered.
