In the Level 2 Fascial Manipulation® course (FM-2), participants expand on their understanding of the biomechanical model to treat patients with multi-segmental dysfunctions more efficiently.
This course consists of two three-day workshops, called FM-2a and FM-2b, that need to be taken within 6-12 weeks of each other to assure a good understanding of the underlying biomechanical rationale and mastery of the techniques presented.
As part of the learning process, Level 2 students will be required to present Assessment Charts of cases treated after Level 1 for discussion.
- Certification in Fascial Manipulation Level 1.
- Assessment Charts and case notes from treatments used in Level 1.
FM-2a – The First 3-day Course
Course FM-2a consists of:
- Focus on the role of Centers of Fusion as part of the biomechanical 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 be discussed and the Assessment Chart used in Fascial Manipulation® Level 1 will be updated with new elements.
FM-2b – The Second 3-day Course
Course FM-2b will consist of:
- Introduction to the Myofascial Spirals to complete understanding of complex movement patterns and mechanisms.
- 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.
At the completion of of the course
At the conclusion of the course, the participant should be able to:
- Understand the role of retinacula in proprioception and pain. (Knowledge)
- Differentiate between spiral and diagonal motor disorders thanks the assessment process. (Analysis)
- Define a correct treatment strategy to restore the biomechanics of the human body. (Synthesis)
- Evaluate the quality of the retinacula through palpatory verification and treat appropriate the points (Center of Fusions) restoring the gliding of the retinacula. (Evaluation)
- Will be capable of utilizing the Assessment Chart for a 3D examination of the human fascial system.
- Will be proficiency in the comparative examination of Centers of Coordination.
- Will have expanded treatment strategies in Fascial Manipulation® method.
What does a course day look like?
Each day will begin at 8:00 am and finishes around 6:00 pm.
At the conclusion of the complete course there will be an examination to appraise the level of understanding and skill level of the practitioner.
