Surgical and Fascia Considerations-Dissection course 2019

This course is designed for surgeons, students or allied health professionals working in a particular specialty and/or at a particular stage in their careers. The courses involve the use of fresh frozen cadaveric specimens. Clinical Anatomist John Sharkey (BACA and AS) will lead dissections identifying anatomy relevant to a wide array of surgical procedures on fresh frozen cadavers ensuring we preserve tissue planes while simulating the surgical experience. Surgeon's will appreciate that fascia is a vital structure and knowledge is required to reduce surgical insults and prevent nerve damage. Anatomical knowledge of fascia is necessary to protect, and, if damaged, reconstruct.

Stations include:

Regional anaesthesia: Paravertebral & brachial plexus block, epidural spinal block/lumbar puncture

Airway procedures: Intubation, video laryngoscopy, surgical cricothyrotomy, difficult airway access

Thoracic access: Thoracostomy & thoracotomy

Cranial access: Burr hole & Craniotomy

Orthopaedic procedures (upper limb): Fasciotomy & carpal tunnel release

Who its aimed at

This course is suitable for clinical anatomists from both academic and clinical backgrounds who are involved in teaching clinically applied anatomy relevant to clinical procedures at undergraduate and/or postgraduate levels.Full details are available on application.

Global Integration of Movement, Assessment and Clinical Applications

Join us for the 1st Canadian Biotensegrity Informed Seminar! 

Sign up to listen to, meet and chat with three world-leading authorities: Joanne AvisonJohn Sharkey, and Wilbour Kelsick as they host a three-day workshop on Biotensegrity Informed Movement Science and Bodywork Therapy. 

This three-day conference marks a historical development in bodywork and movement science in Canada. Therapists and practitioners alike have long been searching for explanations and answers that make sense of the bodies they work with every day. Conventional anatomy books and explanations provided by classical biomechanics texts fall short of the reality that is biotensegrity. This unique event will provide answers to the burning questions you want to ask.

BioTensegrity Focused Dissection Seminar, Dundee University, Scotland

These dissections represent the Worlds first Thiel Soft Fix Dissection courses with a BioTensegrity focus, The dates for my next course in 2019 which will run over three days include: Thursday June 27th, Friday 28th, and Saturday 29th. Invited speakers at this special three day event will be orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Jean-Claude Guimberteau (strolling under the skin), pathologist Dr. Neil Theise (Interstitium), embryologist Dr Jaap van der Wal (fascia sparring dissection), Anatomist Dr. Vladimir Chereminskiy (plastination). Regular team members include Clinical Anatomist John Sharkey and surgeon Dr. Gil Mendez, with biotensegrity interest group experts Joanne Avison, Leonid Blum, Graham Scarr and Dr. Wilbour Kelsick.

This unique three day dissection course takes place at the College of Life Sciences, Department of Anatomy and Human Identification at the University of Dundee, Scotland. 

Come join us this summer 2019 when a group of world-renowned experts including specialists from embryology, biomechanical engineering, molecular biodynamics, anatomy, anatomopathology, Yoga, Pilates, Neuromuscular Therapy, Osteopathy, Biotensegrity gather in Dundee University to propose a new concept of living matter underpinned by the model of Biotensegrity.

Participants on the course will be invited to ask questions and share their vision with this panel of recognised internationally respected authorities.
Following this inaugural meeting it is proposed that the consensus from this gathering of leading scientific minds will be submitted to the scientific press.

This rare and unique three-day dissection course involve's the use of soft fixed cadavers using the Thiel soft fix embalming method. The cadavers exhibit a greater degree of flexibility and true color retention compared to that of traditional formalin-fixed cadavers. Each day will involve a short presentation before moving into the dissection room where under the guidance of clinical anatomist John Sharkey you will participate in a life-changing educational and transformational  experience. There will be time for questions and personal inquiry. This is a rare opportunity to explore the human form and John's team of experienced experts will do all they can to support you. 
Biotensegrity will be our main theme in the course providing the foundation for our understanding of the continuity of the human form. 
A special focus will be around the subject of Embryological Origins; on a scale of softness to stiffness (of soft tissue) throughout our lives. Considering that we live and develop between conception and elder hood, as a tensioned network that relies on BioTensegrity organisation to grow and change and emerge differently, at any point in time; over time…. in a continuum. 

Explore how movement and form, in BioTensegrity architecture, are exquisitely interrelated from conception and throughout life. 

Expand your perception of our self-assembly and how humans as the architects become or respond to our loading history?

Question how does appropriate stiffness relate to tensional integrity and elasticity in motion; from the cradle to the grave?

Witness the tensional nature of the body while we discuss how we grow what we are looking at in the dissection; such as the heart, the limb's and viscera.

A body in peace from a body in pieces

Presented by Clinical Anatomist

John Sharkey MSc-https://www.fisicamenteformazione.it/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/Info_sito_Retreat_2019.pdf

Workshops exploring biotensegrity informed movement and manual applications.

Join Clinical Anatomist, manual therapist, exercise physiologist John Sharkey for workshops embracing somatic exploration infused with the science of biotensegrity. John’s presentations revolve around his unique interpretation of biotensegrity- “anatomy for the 21st Century”,infused with a wholistic view of embryology.

Classical Anatomy is the ideal platform to demonstrate the flaws of current embryological thinking and yet point us in the direction of a new paradigm that does not require us to throw the baby out with the bathwater but does require us to retune our vision, our understanding and our appreciation of the connected oneness of all of us. Embryological considerations will inform our manual approaches and movement strategies as we explore the hierarchy, autonomy and connectiveness of our form. “From so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved” (Darwin. 1859 1st Edition: On the Origin of Species). To support his manual therapy approach this bespoke workshop will utilize cadaveric images and video content from John’s highly acclaimed dissection courses held in Dundee University in Scotland.

Prenditi una pausa e ricaricati attraverso un’esperienza unica: la Retreat!

Quattro giorni nell’oasi del benessere toscano - Chianciano Terme - anche quest’anno ospiterà il convegnopiù importante sulla Fascia e il Movimento in Italia. Saranno presenti grandi studiosi di biomeccanica e movimento, oltre a esperti delle scuole di Fascial Manipulation®, Fascial Training® e Danza Sensibile®:Adamantios Arampazis, Antonio Stecco, John Sharkey, Claude Coldy, Anna Maria Vitali, Carlos Romero, Caterina Fede e Maurizio Fanciulli.

Fascia Retreat è l’opportunità per la comunità degli esperti di movimento - Istruttori di Pilates e Yoga, Personal Trainer, Preparatori Atletici, Fisioterapisti e insegnanti di attività motorie – per approfondire, incontrarsi, condividere le proprie conoscenze, collaborare e far crescere insieme la propria professione.

In these workshops John will mix the art and science of bodywork with open discussion and practical applications providing explanations concerning therapeutic outcomes. Following an overview of the biotensegrity model, and its impact on manual and movement therapies, John will move to the treatment tables/floor for a dynamic practicum putting science into practice. The workshop will intersperse science, theories, evidence (some laughs along the way) and lots of “real time kinesthetic experiences” to support a visual feast with tactile knowledge of the true nature of our human architecture.

• Three days of dynamic thought provoking education

• Vital new concepts and new vision in bodywork science

• Applications to help practitioners to translate their knowledge into 21st century anatomy and physiology specific to human movement and bodywork therapy. Please follow this link: https://www.fisicamenteformazione.it/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/Info_sito_Retreat_2019.pdf
