Considering Fascia in the Mix: A Massage/Manual Therapy Approach

Home > Browse Our Courses > Considering Fascia in the Mix: A Massage/Manual Therapy Approach
Untitled design-36

This course is designed to advance the therapist’s understanding of fascia’s structure and function and pathophysiological consequences associated with commonly addressed clinical presentations (e.g. soft-tissue scars, sprains/strains, tendinopathies, over-use type injuries, low back pain/dysfunction, sliding and force transmission impairments and neurovascular compression syndromes).

 

The aim of the practical component is to assist the therapist with; broadening their skill set (assess for fascial dysfunction, manually engage fascia and provide safe, non-invasive treatment), improving delivery of care and achieving better patient outcomes.

The course material includes emerging research and concepts from the International Fascia Research Congress’ and evidence informed clinical considerations applicable to massage/manual therapists.

 

To expand the therapist’s ‘global’ thinking and treatment skills, an introduction to the functional lines (e.g. myokinetic chains or myofascial meridians) will also be included.

 

The material and hands-on are delivered in a comprehensive, yet user-friendly manner, infused with humor and loaded with easy to integrate, practical skills and knowledge!
