Description

The FM 2 -  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® 2a

In the FM 2a course, participants expand on their understanding of the bio-mechanical model to treat patients with multi-segmental dysfunctions more efficiently. As part of the learning process, Level 2 students will be required to present Assessment Charts of cases treated after Level 1 for discussion. Course FM-2a will focus on the role of Centers of Fusion as part of the bio-mechanical model and the formation of Myofascial Diagonals. Elements of comparative anatomy studies will be introduced to assist the evaluation of adaptive compensations within the fascial system. The involvement of fascia in motor control will discussed and the Assessment Chart used in Fascial Manipulation© will be updated with new elements.

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® 2b

The FM 2b course covers participants expand on their understanding of the biomechanical model to treat patients with multi-segmental dysfunctions more efficiently. As part of the learning process, Level 2 students will be required to present Assessment Charts of cases treated after Level 1 for discussion. Course FM 2b will introduce the Myofascial Spirals to complete understanding of complex movement patterns and mechanisms and the latest fascial research projects will be presented. Numerous treatment demonstrations and practice will highlight this course as comparative assessment of Centers of Coordination and Centers of Fusion, Assessment Chart analysis, clinical reasoning, hands-on skills, and treatment strategies will be emphasized.

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.

 

The course registration for FM 2 is $1,500 (This includes FM2a and FM2b).
