Since introducing Fascial Manipulation© (FM), to the U.S. with Antonio Stecco, M.D., in 2010, I am more excited about my current results in relieving patient’s acute and chronic pain using this treatment than I have ever been.

Fascial Manipulation teaches you the current anatomy and physiology of the fascial system, its evaluation and treatment. It is based on the latest information on the relationship of fascia to muscles, tendons and ligaments.

Practitioners will learn current information about fascia with particular emphasis on myofascial units (MFU) and myofascial sequences based on the anatomy of the fascial system and its relation to the acupuncture system.

In 2013, I was officially certified as an instructor by the Fascial Manipulation Association.

FM courses are taught in four parts (1A and 1B; 2A and 2B).

Stefano Casadei PT from Cesena, Italy and I will be the instructors this year.  Each part is three days (Friday, Saturday and Sunday), for a total of 12 days.

Antonio Stecco, MD will be instructing Part 1A and 1B in Whittier.  Warren Hammer, DC is the instructor for Part 2A and 2B in Whittier.

FM has been taught in Europe for the past 16 years and is slowly spreading throughout the world.  There is no other soft tissue method with as much peer reviewed literature as  FM.

More than 200 U.S. clinicians have become FM providers since 2010. Extremely successful in treating a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, this is an opportunity to learn Fascial Manipulation©, advance your skills and treat your patients better and faster.
