Level 1b: May 10-12, 2019
The Fascial Manipulation course program consists of intensive hands-on courses, combining theoretical lectures, demonstrations, and practice between participants throughout each course day.
Participants will learn to evaluate musculoskeletal dysfunctions with specific reference to the human fascial system, and to apply the Fascial Manipulation method as developed by Luigi Stecco, PT. Lectures include the anatomy and physiology of the fascial system, an explanation of the biomechanical model used in application of this technique, and the anatomical localization of key fascial points. Emphasis will be placed on the evaluation of musculoskeletal dysfunctions.
The complete course series consists of three levels: Level 1, 2 and 3 Fascial Manipulation. Each level is subdivided into two parts, FM-1a and FM-1b, through FM-3a and FM-3b. Completion of the FM Level 1 provides clinical proficiency for a wide range of common dysfunctions.
This course offering is only for Levels 1a and 1b at this time. Levels 2 and 3 may be offered at a later date. See also: http://www.fascialmanipulation.com/en/
