ISM Series Update

Course description

This is a 3-day highly practical course that will update/refine your ISM skills.  It is a very dynamic course, unique to each year and location.  Recently we covered:

  1. Understanding the new concept of Functional Units and how this expedites finding the relationships between drivers in different regions (trunk vs head/neck vs extremities).  No more laundry list of 12 findings to play off one another – that’s exhausting!
  2. Learning how the dural becomes tense and loses mobility – integrating Barral concepts with ISM for the cranium and neurodynamic mobility/elongation – when is the skeleton causing the loss of neural/dural mobility and when is loss of dural/neural elongation causes changes in the skeletal behaviour
  3. Any thing the registrants wanted to review – update on DRA, update on when to spend time ‘waking up’ a muscles (Stage 1 training) vs moving straight to movement training etc.

Come join Diane Lee and the senior ISM Series assistants for 3 days of learning and take home more ISM tools to improve your efficacy and efficiency.

Each ISM Update course is unique so be sure to check the description on the individual course for content.

If you did the ISM Series after 2013, prep is to revisit all your online video prep and support and watch anything new and review anything you feel rusty with. If you did the ISM Series (Discover Physio) prior to 2014 you have a lot of catching up to do! Registration for this course will provide you with all the online course material for the current ISM Series which takes approximately 20 hours to get through so plan your time accordingly.

Course Reviews

  1. Dear Diane, I wanted to thank you for putting your heart and soul into teaching the course this last weekend. It really helped integrate all the loose ends (e.g. sternoclavicular joint, cranium, pelvis/ pelvic floor, elbow, wrist,) and pull the pieces together for me.

    I went forth confident that I could figure things out given the framework (form) and being empowered to be creative (freedom). The journey ahead excites me with all the possibilities for improving quality of movement and life for my patients.

    Thank you for the empowerment and for passing on this knowledge.
