The existence of a Primary Respiratory Mechanism (PRM) was formulated by Sutherland and his early disciples. This mechanism is described as the fundamental breathing of living tissues, making all parts of the body oscillate at a rythm slower than that of the heart and thoracic breathing. Until now, no research, clinical or fundamental, was able to pinpoint its physiological basis, and even osteopaths disagree on its existence and clinical relevance. We are thus confronted with a paradox whereby some osteopaths feel and experience remarkable clinical results with it, some do not, and research contests its very existence. This issue is becoming crucial as craniosacral osteopathy, and its derivated approaches (such as myofascial release) are becoming more and more popular with the public, not only as patient care but also as a professionnal training, of short duration, totally separate from general osteopathy.
This seminar hopes to clarify this confusing situation through discussion and practical exercises of the many issues at stake. It is the author’s belief that the paradoxes of craniosacral osteopathy are resolved by the practice of osteopathic self treatment, where the PRM, its various frequencies, its clinical use, are directly experienced. The seminar will offer basic training in this self treatment, leaving participants with an approach they can use for themselves and their patients. Through various exercices, the PRM and the spontaneous motilities we most often barely feel, will become subjective certainties and remarkable therapeutic tools in all pathological conditions.
A full documentation, with an extensive bibliography, drawn from the medical literature will be given to students
