Fascial Manipulation® has been taught in Europe for over 16 years. It has been taught to over a thousand practitioners in 40 countries. It was created by Luigi Stecco, PT, over 40 years ago.

The Fascial Manipulation® program is an intensive hands-on series. It combines theoretical lectures, demonstrations, and practicals throughout each course day. Participants will learn to evaluate musculoskeletal dysfunctions with specific reference to the human fascial system, and to apply the Fascial Manipulation method. Lectures include the anatomy and physiology of the fascial system, an explanation of the biomechanical model used in application of this technique, and the anatomical localization of fascial points (myofascial sequences, spirals). Emphasis will be placed on the evaluation of musculoskeletal dysfunctions (from history taking, to hypothesis, to functional testing, to palpation, to verification and treatment) together with a methodology and strategy for treatment.

The Fascial Manipulation® series is intended for physical therapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, medical doctors, and other licensed health care practitioners with a good working knowledge of musculoskeletal anatomy, physiology and neurology.
The primary objective is to develop an understanding of the Centers of Coordination (CC) that are responsible for the normal function of related monoarticular and biarticular muscles. By the end of the course, clinicians will:
• Learn anatomy and physiology of the fascial system.
• Learn how to evaluate myofascial planes: upper and lower extremities, spine.
• Determine functional testing of areas of complaint.
• Develop skill and understanding to assess abnormal functional findings with fascial points of involvement to restore normal function.
