The Pelvic and Pelvic Floor

Marty Morales (USA)



The "Pelvis and Pelvic Floor" class is designed to help practitioners be able to assess low back discomfort and work key areas in the pelvis. 
In this class you will be able to assess the sacrum, lumbar spine, pubic bone area, and pelvic floor areas.

In addition, you will learn how to work connective tissue restrictions in the pelvis and pelvic floor areas in a way that will relieve tension.
You will also learn how to perform effective manual therapy around nerves (sciatic and subcutaneous nerves). Finally, we will explore low back pain from a Structural Integration standpoint and ask the question: If low back is not being positively affected by just working the back, then where else would we need to work in order to help our client?

Teacher: Marty Morales (USA)

Marty Morales, Advanced Certified Rolfer™, CMT has extensive experience in the area of cervical spine issues working with clients in various settings. Marty started his training in 2002 at the San Francisco School of Massage & Bodywork and soon began assisting instructors, including Art Riggs, Certified Advanced Rolfer. In 2005, Marty began teaching beginning Swedish and Intermediate classes. His interest in structural bodywork continued in 2007 when he enrolled at the Rolf Institute in Boulder Colorado and Sao Paolo, Brazil, training under world renowned instructors such as Monica Caspari and Jan Sultan. As a Certified Rolfer, Marty began teaching bodywork workshops sharing advanced techniques to hundreds of practitioners. In 2009, Marty became NCBTMB certified as an Approved Provider and expanded his course offerings, teaching independent classes throughout San Francisco. His own education continued as he trained with a wide variety of experts, ranging from a Canadian osteopath, athletic trainer, and nurse/Rolfer. His own curiosity led him to research and read about such bodywork contributors such as Christa Schroth, Stanley Hoppenfeld, and Alexander Nicholas. In 2011, he was asked to teach at the Massage Therapy Institute in Davis, California, expanding his teaching offerings towards Medical Massage. Also in 2011, Marty shared his passion for body mechanics and offered a different approach to learning it by writing the book, “Mastering Body Mechanics – A Visual Guide for Bodyworkers”. The book has become required reading at the San Francisco School of Massage. In 2012, Marty expanded domestically and internationally, teaching in Florida, Taipei, and Poland. 2013 sees a further expansion with Hong Kong, Hungary, and Greece as other possible teaching spots. Still maintaining a home base in San Francisco, Marty blends his studies of Rolfing, Deep Tissue and Cranio-Sacral to create an effective mode of working that has led to a thriving practice.
