Learn the Fascial Manipulation® Method by Stecco
Course offered by Structure & Function Education
Mesa, AZ starting on October 19th: Fascial Manipulation® Method system takes a unique approach by looking at the body as a whole, not just “where it hurts” or where the problems appear to be. Utilizing a systematic approach to assessment and treatment of the tissue, the course covers deep tissue manipulation and focus areas of deep fascia. Students learn manual palpation of very specific regions of the body in order to determine the location of fascial alterations which may be involved with your patient’s problem.
The Fascial Manipulation® Level 1 (FM-1) course consists of two parts, called FM-1a and FM-1b. This course is a hybrid course that mixes online learning with an in-person 3-day course involving instruction in and application of the Fascial Manipulation® Method. The first part is completed online before your in-person lab. You must complete and pass the exam for the online course before taking the in-person course. You should allow at least one week between the two parts to allow enough time for your exam to be reviewed.
The in-person course is provided by Structure & Function Education and the online part is through the Fascial Manipulation® Method website. You will receive login information for the online class directly from them. Your course fee includes both parts, no additional fee required to take the online part.

What are the benefits of the Fascial Manipulation® system by Stecco?
- The uniqueness of Fascial Manipulation® is looking at the body as a whole, not just “where it hurts” or where the problems appear to be.
- Fascial alterations away from the affected painful area are the actual cause of the problem. In most cases, we are able to treat acutely painful conditions and not even touch the area that hurts.
- In other words, the fascial structures in other areas may be causing abnormal (or unbalanced) pull or stress on the muscles, joints or nerves that cause you to feel pain, limited movement or even altered sensations in a different part of your body.
- Learn manual palpation of very specific regions of the body in order to determine the location of fascial alterations which may be involved with your patient’s problem
- Learn a systematic approach to assessment and treatment of these issues, consisting of deep tissue manipulation of very specific and focused areas of the deep fascia
What does Hybrid course mean?
The Fascial Manipulation® Level 1 (FM-1) course consists of two three-day courses, called FM-1a and FM-1b. In this new hybrid delivery, level 1a will be taken online and MUST be completed at least one week prior to attending level 1b in person. You MUST watch all required lectures and pass each test from the online portion of class. You then need to print your certificate stating you passed these exams and BRING IT WITH YOU TO LEVEL 1b. You will not be admitted to level 1b without your printed certificate. This is to assure a good understanding of the underlying biomechanical rationale and mastery of the techniques presented in level 1b.
- When you register for FM-1b you will need to enroll in the Hybrid FM-1a course on the Stecco Education Platform.
- Your hybrid course fee includes the cost for both parts. You do not need to pay a separate FM-1a course fee.
