This class will discuss how to incorporate treatment of the fascial layer into manual therapy practice based on the recent transformative fascial research. While treatment of fascial restrictions has been a part of manual therapy for years, there has been greater emphasis on joint dysfunctions and muscle tightness. However, recent research findings have suggested that the fascia is playing a much bigger role than previously understood in regard to tissue mobility and restriction, force generation and motion patterns, fluid flow, and immune function. Learn how to effectively treat this important tissue layer with a better understanding of how fascia works.
