This introductory lab course in cardiovascular rehabilitation provides the practitioner with simple-to-learn and easy-to-use manual techniques for improving total body circulation. The concepts and techniques learned in this course will lead to improved range of motion and joint mobility, as well as improved cardiovascular status and overall quality of life. Extensive lab time will be focused on clinical skills training. During this course, the therapist will learn how to apply the ‘Combined Vessels Approach’, a novel method to affect the tension of all major blood vessels in the body. This seminar is different from DCR’s course Cardiac Rehabilitation, which focuses on cardiac tissue. Cardiovascular Rehabilitation addresses peripheral vascular resistance, both arterial and venous. Peripheral vascular resistance is secondary to tension in arteries and veins, including smooth muscle spasm and impingement syndromes. The Integrative Manual Therapy learned in this course may be used to affect general circulation, claudication pain in the chest, trunk, arms and legs, as well as skin color and other signs and symptoms.
