Fluid Articular Release-Lower (FAR-L)


Class Information
Class Code: 

This wonderful class will teach students to use a specific synovial fluid and the body's inherent articulation rhythm to release restrictions specific to all body articulations, including "fused" embryological articulations.
This class, previously called LAFR/RAFT, has been successfully taught for over 10 years in the lymph curriculum but also can stand alone (no prerequisite) because the specific lymphatic rhythm is not utilized for this class.

Learn how to release joints in the body in a very non invasive manner.
Learn non-invasive articulation fluid release techniques for the:

  • Peripheral (appendicular) articulations: lower extremity from the hip to the foot articulations - embryological structures
  • Pelvis: articulations of the sacrum, pubic symphysis, superior pubic ramus, iliac crest, sacro-iliac and Iliolumbar joint and embryological structures

Some material from the upper body will be introduce in this class:
 Intra-oral articulations: zygoma, premaxilla, maxilla, palatine, pterygoid process, sphenobasilar articulation

  • Face and skull and Associated structures
  • Midline structures of the Skull
  • Zygoma relationship: 5 relationships
  • Sphenoid relationships: 9 relationships
  • Vomer Bone relationships 5 relationships
  • Ethmoid Bone relationships: 6 relationships


  • Interstitial fluid release, with applications for edema, fascia, muscles, skin (i.e. scars and acne), and articulations (e.g. ethmoid, sacroiliac)and intraosseous techniques will be demonstrated.


When the bony framework is out of place numerous type of pathologies can happen, from pain and dysfunction, discomfort, asymmetry/misalignment, range of motion abnormality, tissue/tone changes, affecting the muscles, fascia, viscera or bones themselves.

A wide range of pathologies can be associated with joint dysfunction, and may be alleviated by these techniques, including:

  • Musculoskeletal pain in general
  • Joint pain such as hip pain, knee pain, foot pain, etc.
  • Low back pain
  • Chronic sciatica
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Treatment of accidents and injuries, including some whiplash
  • Work injuries
  • Sport injuries
  • Repetitive stress injury (RSI), joint or muscle overuse
  • Arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis
  • Some gastrointestinal disorders (somato-visceral reflex)
  • Some nerve entrapment
  • Stress, general vitality and well being

These techniques use fluid and are non invasive and can be applied with ease and great success to babies, elderly and even animal.
