Scalenes and Neck Myofascial Techniques

Just finished another ABMP continuing-ed class. Til Luchau’s Scalenes and Neck Myofascial Techniques was quite intense! He taught 2 or 3 different versions of The Anterior Scalene Technique, Vestibular Orienting Technique, Sleeve Core Differentiation (the practitioner works UP the neck!), Upper Rib Release (very relevant b/c I feel that rib work is neglected AND it correlates Thoracic Outlet Syndrome because so many tissues form a lot of joints there and a lot of nerves go through there!), and The Mother Cat Technique (which can be quite effective for loosening up, hereby preparing for deeper work and ending work on a very relaxing note). He also reiterated that the scalene muscle group is where the brachial plexus passes through!
