Exploring Fascia: A 5-part Series

That’s right… fascia, fascia, fascia! Evolutionist theorize that; if we didn’t need it – we wouldn’t have it. We have A LOT of fascia – without it all our other bits, pieces and spaces would be formless, unconnected and non-communitive puddles of goo! 

This 5-part series is designed to advance the therapist’s understanding of the structure and function of the fascial system and the consequences associated with injury and dysfunction (e.g. problematic scars, tendinopathies, over-use/repeat strain injuries, low back pain/dysfunction and vascular, lymphatic and neural compression). 

The course material includes emerging research and concepts and evidence informed clinical considerations applicable to massage/manual therapists for the purpose of facilitating better patient/client outcomes. 

The course is comprehensive, yet user-friendly, infused with humor and loaded with easy to integrate, practical skills and knowledge!
