GDS Method Introductory Webinars

The GDS Method requires practitioners to closely observe patterns of movement (ie habits) to then enable the provision of treatment for therapy as well as prevention. Treatments incorporate articular and muscular systems of a global nature.

Never presented before in English, the GDS Method Thoraco-Pelvis course will be coming to Australia in October 2023. Thoracic-pelvic pathologies covered within the October course will include;

  • Low back pain
  • Referred pain
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Respiratory pathologies (asthma, emphysema, post-Covid syndrome) and their impact on the thorax, the cervical spine and the dorso-lumbar region

In preparation for this course, two webinars explaining assessment and treatment concepts will be recorded and made available for clinicians that treat their clients from a holistic perspective.
