CLASS DESCRIPTION:

In this class, we will work with different planes of fusion created during the embryonic period.

During embryonic development, there are many instances when two opposing tissues come into contact and fuse to form one continuous structure. This type of tissue fusion occurs during the formation of many organs.

It is important to understand that when these planes fuse, the physical stress and the emotional, familial, or collective environment can influence the type and degree of fusion. It is essential to reevaluate these planes of fusion and complete the embryological process to have a strong foundation for these areas.

These planes of fusion or "seams" can be misaligned because the embryological process has been disturbed, but also for numerous reasons after birth such as trauma, accident, shock, and in general a dysfunction of the body/mind/spirit.

We will cover in 35 labs:

1. Planes of Fusion of the Face 

2. Planes of Fusion of the Ear including Pinna, Tympanic Membranes and Ossicles 

3. Planes of Fusion of the Eye including the Lens

4. Planes of Fusion of the Teeth

5. Planes of Fusion of the Hard Palate and the Tongue

6. Planes of Fusion of the Muscles/Tendons:

- Masseter

- Rotator Cuff

- Muscles of the Knee

7. Planes of Fusion of the Bones:

- Hyoid bone

- Vertebrae

- Sacrum and Pelvis

- Long Bones

- Sternum

- Ribs

- Skull and Fontanelles, etc.

8. Planes of Fusion of the Central Nervous System

9. Vertical Lines of Fusion

10. Planes of Fusion of the Digestive System

- Diaphragm (Septum Transversum)

- Esophagus, Stomach, Duodenum

- Large and small intestines

- Other viscera

- Uterus, etc.

11. Planes of Fusion of the Heart and Vessels

12. Embryologic Skin Folds

 

CLINICAL APPLICATIONS:

There is almost an infinite amount of clinical applications for this class as we work deeply with skin, organ of senses, muscles, tendons, bones, CNS, viscera, etc. Patients/clients will often have a deep, deep sense of well-being that can last for weeks.

Remember, any surgery can disturb these planes of fusion and the techniques of EPoF will be important to release tissue dysfunctions in areas modified by surgery. 

Using the planes of fusion of the external, middle and internal ear, Dr. Chikly was able to treat difficult pathologies he could not address before, including hearing loss related to age and otosclerosis. 

Planes of fusion of the eyes and lens will help numerous eye dysfunctions.

The technique on tendons will release many muscular pathologies (e.g. pain, inflammation, limited range of motion, etc.) that time and again could not be addressed previously by working on the nerves, arteries, veins, lymphatics, fascia, bones, ligaments, muscles, etc. including "frozen" shoulders, or chronic pathologies of the elbow, wrists, hips, knees, ankles, etc.

Planes of fusion of the bones is a wonderful way to efficiently release dysfunctions of the joints throughout the body, including TMJ, vertebrae, ribs, long bones and skull.

Planes of fusion of the central nervous system will complete the techniques learned in Brain level 1.

Planes of fusion of the heart and abdominopelvic viscera will give you new tools for viscera dysfunctions.
