About the event

This introduction course called The Three Bodies Method™ stands on its own as an experiential immersion that will teach practitioners Biodynamic Osteopathic principles and indirect OMT techniques stemming from the native, historical, and modern masters. It also is a required prep course for participants who are interested in applying to the full BOMT™ (Biodynamic Osteopathic Manual Therapeutic Techniques) program that begins in Sept 2025 (details below.)

The Three Bodies Method™ class offers students a complete introduction to BOMT™ and includes an overall biodynamic application of soft-tissue BOMT™ work. Different levels of palpation are applied to specific interchanges (called anatomical hubs) in order to dialogue with the three different bodies that exist harmoniously within the system: the structural body, fluidic body, and electromagnetic body. Techniques presented in the course come from modern hands as well as from the hands of some of the masters including the Shawnee and Cherokee people in Missouri (with whom A.T. Still D.O. spent time with for a portion of his life,) Dr. John Littlejohn D.O., Dr. Barber D.O., Dr. V. Frymann D.O., Dr. Sutherland D.O., Anne Wales D.O., Dr. Becker D.O., and P. Druelle D.O. to name a few.

Anatomical interrelationships are a key part of this course. The soft tissue techniques presented are intended to teach seasoned practitioners techniques that support the visceral, fascial, neural, arterial, lymphatic (fluidic,) and musculoskeletal systems. Light touch combined with specific focus guides practitioners to dive consciously into the work together with the client to witness change. Students will learn about physiology and mechanics via powerpoint presentations and will integrate theory by engaging in movement (Movement with the Anatomy) and guided visualization (Reflections in Nature & Anatomy) exercises.
