Although fascia is the latest buzzword among therapists, it has actually been around for a long time. Fascia is a specialized system of the body that has an appearance similar to a spider’s web or a sweater. Fascia is very densely woven, covering and interpenetrating every muscle, bone, nerve, artery and vein, as well as, all of our internal organs including the heart, lungs, brain and spinal cord. It can be described as slings, springs and spiral lines depending on whether you are a movement or manual therapist. The most interesting aspect of the fascial system is that it is not just a system of separate coverings. It is actually one continuous structure that exists from head to toe without interruption. In this way you can begin to see that each part of the entire body is connected to every other part by the fascia, like the yarn in a sweater.

All movement should have elasticity, bounce and freedom. We tend to get density, compression, restriction and pain.

What you will learn:

  • Understand the relationship between gravity, load and tensegrity on the the facial connective chain.
  • Apply the foundations of slings, springs and spirals in both group and one to one programming in order to enhance intelligent movement.
  • Discover how and when to use “less is more” principle of the movement/manual programme.
  • Identify the different methods in fascia from Ida Rolf, Tom Myers, Chaitow and Schlep.
  • Compare some medical studies and how to apply the knowledge with clients.
  • Develop a system of movements or moves that can be integrated into a Yoga,Pilates, movement or manual therapy session
  • Integrate stability, movement and elasticity into both the inner and outer self.
  • Resolve faulty breath patterns with fascial unwinding and preparatory exercises.
