Class Description:

This wonderful class will teach students to use a specific synovial fluid rhythm to release restrictions specific to all body articulations, including "fused" embryological articulations.

This material has been successfully taught for over 20 years in the lymph curriculum and has no prerequisite.

  • Learn how to release joints in the body in a non-invasive manner.
  • Learn articulation fluid release techniques for:
    - Peripheral (appendicular) articulations: upper extremity from acromioclavicular joint and clavicle to the hand articulations - embryological structures
    - Two types of rib cage articulations – sternum and embryological structures
    - Spine: cervical, thoracic, lumbar, sacral, and coccyx – intervertebral, facets (zygapophyseal), and embryological articulations

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

When the bony framework is out of place numerous types of pathologies can happen from pain, dysfunction, discomfort, asymmetry/misalignment, range of motion abnormalities, 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
  • Neck pain
  • Some headache, dizziness, or vertigo
  • Joint pain such as shoulder pain, elbow pain, wrist pain, etc.
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • 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


Embryological articulations assessed and released during FAR-U classes:

  • Metopic suture
  • Symphysis menti
  • Vertical sternal bars
  • Sternebrae
  • Posterior neural arch of vertebrae, centrum, and other articulations
  • Diaphysis/epiphysis of extremities

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




Bring comfortable, loose-fitting clothes. Some of these approaches require touching exposed skin, we encourage you to bring a bath towel, lab clothes, and appropriate undergarments so that you are comfortable.

Short fingernails are required for some techniques.

Due to the potential chemical sensitivities of your classmates, please refrain from wearing perfumes or oils to class.

Please bring a treatment table.
