Body painting helps you to absorb knowledge effortlessly using visual and palpatory techniques that optimise your learning process. Come and join us - it's fun!

Day 1: Body Paint Anatomy Workshop: The Upper Back, Neck & Shoulders

On day one you will explore the muscles of the upper back, neck and shoulders. These muscles are often at the route of common pathologies, to know your muscles will assist in achieving better clinical results and more referrals.

You will start with a discussion and demonstration on each muscle to re-familiarise ourselves. This will include practicing the muslces' action/s, discussing its roles in the body We will explore what dysfunctions it is prone to and examples of when the muscle is heavily utilised. Then in pairs, you will start by marking the origin and insertion on the body and then paint on the belly of the muscle. At the end of the session, (with permission from your partner) you will be able to take photos of your finished muscle masterpiece! This makes for a wonderful keepsake, learning tool and great content for your social media and website.

Day 2: Body Paint Anatomy Workshop: The Lower Back & Legs

On day two you will be working on the lower body, exploring the muscles of the leg and lower back. The framework will be the same as day one, starting with a discussion on the muscle and then working in pairs to paint the muscles onto the body. By the end of the weekend you will have a much fuller and richer understanding of where muscles are in the body as well as their roles and how you might work with them in your professional setting.

Build your muscle knowledge to gain better clinical results, this will enhance the love of your work and your clients will be grateful. Better clinical results lead to more word of mouth referrals and therefore increased client base and income.
