      Description

      The FM 3 - Fascial Manipulation® course consists of two three-day courses that need to be taken within 4-6 weeks of each other to assure a good understanding of the underlying bio-mechanical rationale and mastery of the techniques.

       

      Fascial Manipulation® 3a

      In the FM 3a course, students will learn how to restore function within the autonomic nervous system. FMID acts on the superficial, deep, visceral, vascular, and glandular fasciae that often is associated with a vast amount of internal complaints. Many times these complaints are causative of chronic musculoskeletal issues.The Fascial Manipulation for Internal Dysfunction (FMID) course builds on the knowledge and skills from the FM 1 and FM 2 courses. You will learn a different clinical reasoning process and a new bio-mechanical models applied to the same points to treat patients with digestive, respiratory, urinary, circulatory, endocrine, and hematopoetic dysfunctions.

      Each day will begin at 8:30 am and finish around 6:00 pm. Each level will conclude with an examination to appraise the level of understanding and skill level.

       

      Fascial Manipulation® 3b

      In the FM 3b course, students will learn how to restore function within the autonomic nervous system. FMID acts on the superficial, deep, visceral, vascular, and glandular fasciae that often is associated with a vast amount of internal complaints. Many times these complaints are causative of chronic musculosketal issues.

      The Fascial Manipulation for Internal Dysfunction (FMID) course is a 7-day course taught in two sessions of 4 days and 3 days (usually a month apart).

      The Fascial Manipulation for Internal Dysfunction (FMID) course builds on the knowledge and skills from the FM-1 and FM-2 courses. You will learn a different clinical reasoning process and a new bio-mechanical models applied to the same points to treat patients with digestive, respiratory, urinary, circulatory, endocrine, and hematopoetic dysfunctions.

      The course registration for FM 3 is $1,500 (This includes FM3a and FM3b).
