Phillip Beach is a visionary Osteopath and Acupuncturist from New Zealand and has a 30 year interest in whole body movement patterns. He has developed a new model of understanding movement through evolutionary and embryonic design. During this 3-day workshop, you will learn how muscles work in large “fields”, how the fields interact to create our core movement patterns, and how to then assess and correct what he calls “Archetypal Postures and the Erectorcises.”

Phillip’s pioneering book, “Muscles and Meridians,” breaks new conceptual ground and his workshop and material will fundamentally change your understanding of human movement!

This workshop is designed for anyone who deals with the ease and dis-ease of human movement. Great for Pilates and movement professionals, students, Personal Trainers, Bodyworkers, Physical Therapists, Osteopaths and Chiropractors.
