Delos Therapy® is a precise and innovative solution for a muscular problem that has gone unidentified and misdiagnosed in conventional medicine. The missing link in understanding muscular health is pliability.
Based on the science of three-dimensional micro-stretching of muscular fibers and fascia with systematic, precise, oscillating pressure, Delos Therapy reverses the process that leads to muscle dysfunction. Unlike any traditional myofascial techniques, this unique therapy targets the root cause to eliminate pain, stiffness, restrictions, and limited mobility.
The workshop curriculum is designed to support:
Section A - Fascia Structure, Function and Dysfunction
Develop an advanced and comprehensive understanding of cutting-edge discoveries in myofascial anatomy, including macroscopic, cellular, and microscopic structures. You’ll take a deep dive into the extra-cellular matrix, and the various mechano, biochemical and hormonal receptors and their functional roles. The lecture explores the latest medical research findings and views modern imaging for common pathophysiological changes such as fascial densification, irregular fiber arrangement, advanced glycation end products and the effects of pain and inflammation.
Section B - Application and introduction to 3-dimensional oscillating pressure and shear. A detailed history of Delos Institute and deeper understanding of structure and function with an emphasis on the pathophysiology of fascia and current treatment options of the myofascial system. Participants will discuss the limitations of these options and explore the basics of Delos Institute Myofascial Therapy combining multi-directional oscillating pressure and shearing forces and their effects on the cellular and neurological elements of fascia remodeling.
Upon completion of Part 1, you’ll have the foundational knowledge needed and start developing your therapeutic skills in order to produce general, 3-dimensional myofascial pliability.
This section focuses on the Regional Anatomy Series—training that is divided into five functional regions of the body. By combining the latest research in myofascial science with our trademarked technique, you’ll gain a thorough understanding of the relationships of various systemic structures within each region. You’ll be able to identify fascial adhesions and densifications, muscles, neurovascular bundles, as well as functions and dysfunctions common to each region. Our focus is empowering you to utilize the therapeutic benefits of orientation, pressure, and shearing. We will also introduce pre-stretching positions and combining PNF stretching with our technique.
Upon completion of Part 2, you will have honed your therapeutic skills in order to produce 3-dimensional myofascial pliability, understand how to apply oscillating pressure and shear to specific regions, and remodel myofascial structures in a regionally specific manner.
