Around the Core: The Midline and Vertebral Axis

In this module, orientation to the Long Tide as a stating point in session work is introduced. Concepts of midline phenomena and embryology are also explored as a vehicle for understanding the organisation and health of the human system. The midline as an archetypal concept is explored. The primal midline, an embryological ordering principle at the heart of tissue organization, is introduced via direct perception. Within this context, the motility and mobility dynamics of the dural tube, pelvis and vertebral column are explored. The embryology of the vertebral column and its relationship to the notochord is emphasised. Students are introduced to clinical approaches to fixation and inertia within these dynamics. Trauma skills are continued as clinical approaches to states of hypo-arousal, immobilization and freezing states are introduced.
