Layered Palpation; A Dynamic Exploration of Visceral Anatomy

~ The New LIVE Layered Palpation Webinar Series ~

I have been hard at work revising and IMPROVING the layered palpations in order to make them more clinically relevant.

Why you need to do layered palpations!

Layered palpations are an excellent way to take your understanding of anatomy from the static, one dimensional page of anatomy books to a dynamic and multidimensional experience. 

Blending an accurate understanding of anatomy, and visualization based on that anatomy with intention, layered palpations, under the direction of an experienced guide can profoundly enhance your listening skills. 

Research has shown that under the skillful guidance of an experienced teacher/communicator the brain of the student and the brain of the teacher will sync in a dynamic display of interconnected entrainment. We will explore this phenomenon and much more through these layered palpation experiences. 

What you will learn! 

  • Visceral anatomy with a focus on the relationship between structure and function.
  • Peritoneal connections, which will enhance the subtle and precise nuances in your listening.
  • Visceral articulations, which will assist you in distinguishing between organs and tissues.
  • Relevant musculoskeletal relationships in order to enhance your understanding of referred pain patterns and patient symptoms.
  • Vascular, neural and lymphatic relationships.
  • Potential pathologies and how this can be accurately perceived and interpreted.

Just a few of the topics we will explore during this webinar series:

  • What does it mean to "palpate" an organ?
  • How are you able to listen to an organ through a multitude of tissue layers?
  • How does your brain process information received through palpation?
  • What are the key skin receptors through which you access information in the patient's tissues?
  • What is the role of intention and visualization?

Interwoven with the seemingly simple act of palpation are multiple streams of information:

  • Receptors in your hand.
  • Receptors in the skin of the patient.
  • The depth of your understanding of anatomy & physiology.
  • Your intention.
  • Your inherent ability to visualize and imagine.

Webinar Logistic Details:

  • No pre reqs required!
  • Each live webinar will be offered on a Saturday at 2:00PM (PST) and cover 2 organs lasting for about 90 minutes.
  • About 1-2 weeks after the live webinar the recording will be available to Serious and Committed subscribers on
  • The Layered Palpation live webinar series will take place over the next couple years (one 90–minute session every 2 months).
  • In each live class we spend about 15–30 minutes discussing the anatomy and relevant visceral articulations for each organ to prepare you for a 20–30 minute layered palpation of the organ.

    Hi Ron,
    Am I understanding correctly that these happen online? Do you recommend having a model present to work with as we’re exploring the palpitations?
