Hello to all students, D.O. and D.O.M.P. !!

Jane Eliza Stark, 
MS, D.O.M.P. will present a course in Vancouver on February 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th, 2018

A Fluidic Approach to the Treatment of Connective Tissue

This course challenges several of the commonly held paradigms regarding the understanding and treatment of fascial tissue. In particular, it focuses on the often overlooked, yet critically important, role of loose connective tissue in the regulation of the health of the body. Using a comprehensive theoretical approach and her practical experience with dissection and clinical practice, Jane explains, demonstrates, and supervises the practice of several techniques applicable to connective tissue using a fluidic, rather than a fibrous, approach to its normalization. It will also be discovered that treating the loose connective tissue through the medium of fluid is often a pathway to access a client’s emotional landscape.

Jane Eliza Stark is recognized internationally as an osteopathic historiographer, author, and workshop leader on the fluidic approach to treating connective tissue and osteopathic history. To date, Jane has lectured or taught in over ten countries on the subjects of connective tissue, osteopathic research, osteopathic history, spirituality in early osteopathy and embryology.
Jane holds an undergraduate degree from the University of Guelph in Biology (1980) and a Master’s degree from Walden University in Clinical Research Administration (2014). She also holds diplomas from Sheridan College in Sports Injury Management (1990), the Collège D’Études Supérieures in Somatotheraphy (2001), and the Canadian College of Osteopathy in Osteopathy (2003). She received the honorary degree of Honoris Causa from Atman College in Sophia, France in 2008. Jane has practiced as a certified Athletic Therapist since 1991 and as an Osteopathic Manual Practitioner since 2003. She is also a registered kinesiologist. She currently serves on the faculty of the Canadian College of Osteopathy (CCO; Toronto and Winnipeg), and the Collège d'Études Ostéopathiques (Vancouver and Halifax) and on the faculty of the Japanese Traditional Osteopathic College in Kobe, Japan. She has been the director of research at the CCO since 2007. She was on the 1996 Canadian Medical Team for the Paralympic Games in Atlanta and the 1998 Commonwealth Games in Kuala Lumpur. As well, she was the team therapist for the Canadian Men’s Rugby Team from 1991-1995, retiring after the 1995 World Cup.

The subject of this new seminar focuses on methods that can be used to help children suffering from cerebral palsy, trisomy 21, and autism. The material to be covered includes the following:


The role of brain inflammation in all three pathologies, the reciprocal equilibration of the membranes and liquids, the systemic activity of the brain, the dynamic of the lungs, neuroplasticity, and the role of vascularization.

Cerebral Palsy:

The living biomechanic and the biodynamic reveal the mechanisms affected by the problems of cerebral palsy. 
Upper thoracic, C0/C1/C2, first sympathetic cerebral ganglion in young children and newborns, the foramen magnum, and the compression of the marrow. 
The petrous part and the trajectory of the carotid. The links between the sympathetic ganglion and carotid system. 
The corpus callosum and socio-emotional and cognitive balance. 
The brain stem. 
The vagus nerve and cerebral inflammation.

Trisomy 21:

The pre- and the post-sphenoid, the posterior fossa, and the right sinus. The functions of the thalamus and the third ventricle. The importance of the spiral of birth.

Autism and the Breath of Life:

The functions of the amygdala and limbic system. 
The frontal lobe and the insula. 
The temporal lobe. 
The importance of osteopathic work with the Breath of Life at the levels of the electromagnetic field and brain matter. 
The importance of the silent dialogue, the MIND according to Still. 
Introduction of the Breath of Life and its application to injured areas using techniques developed by Rollin Becker and new developments by Philippe Druelle.

All Three Pathologies:

The importance of the amygdala, the limbic system, the flux flow, and the synapses in the three pathologies. The prefrontal zone and the prefrontal circuits. 
Methodology for building a treatment plan for: 
1. Cerebral palsy 
2. Trisomy 
3. Autism.


This seminar brings forth numerous osteopathic solutions for treating newborns and young children with cerebral palsy, trisomy, and autism. These solutions allow for better management and greater progress for both the child and his or her family.

Seminar Objective:

Participants will be able to use the methods taught in the seminar to effectively treat children with cerebral palsy, trisomy, and autism.
