    Fascia is the buzz word of the moment in manual and physical therapies. Adding myofascial techniques to your skill set can often be the missing link in the treatment of complex and chronic pain conditions including low back pain, sports injuries, fibromyalgia, and ongoing pain from accident, injury or emotional trauma.

    These versatile skills can be used as a stand -alone technique or incorporated into your existing bodywork practice.

    This practical workshop will explore the major approaches to working with fascia including direct methods derived from Rolfing/ structural integration and indirect methods.

    Suitable for all manual therapists including osteopaths, physios, chiropractors, acupuncturists and massage therapists.
