The Myofascial Release Workshops are the basis for the Advanced Fascial Release Diploma – a minimum of 16 days study.

The Myofascial Release Workshops can be taken at your own pace and need to be taken in order. Should you want to complete the Advanced Fascial Release Diploma in future then all completed workshops will go towards this.

Myofascial Release techniques are an invaluable addition for bodywork therapists wishing to get to the bottom of chronic injuries. Emotional holding patterns are also accessed through these extremely powerful and effective techniques. Enrolling on this course will revolutionise your practice, and increase your client base. Enrol on this course and you will not look back! As one student said:

The techniques:

These amazingly effective techniques equip you to deal with chronic injuries at their root. Learn to deal with the physical as well as emotional component of injury. For patients who feel they have tried everything myofascial release can bring them profound pain relief, increased mobility and therefore a greater sense of well-being. As a result of enrolling on this course your practice will build from word of mouth alone.

Our Myofascial Release Training gives you a thorough understanding of the importance of full body treatment and the integration of Fascial release techniques into your current practice. You will learn a multitude of techniques, both direct and indirect that cannot fail to enhance your current working practice. Bring fast, long lasting results to your patients on a physical, emotional and energetic level and therefore enjoy the rewards of a busier clinic.

About fascia

Fascia is the most abundant tissue in the body. It is a continuous 3D web of connective tissue which infuses, supports and surrounds all organs and tissues within the body. Fascia is our shock absorber. Due to the connective nature of fascia, one restriction may lead to another, pulling the body out of alignment and creating compensatory patterns. As a result, this may cause postural disturbances, pain, repetitive strain type injuries, and other pathologies. Learn to effectively release fascial restrictions and the body’s holding patterns. Bring profound pain relief and increase mobility. As a result of gaining better clinical results, your practice will build. Leave with the skills to free up fascial restrictions, increase lymphatic and cardio-vascular flow, and enhance health and well-being in your patients.

The cyto-skeleton has a fascial component, so once you are familiar with these techniques you can have an impact at a cellular level. You can therefore enhance a patient’s health at a cellular level.

Additional Skills:

We train you the therapist to quiet your mind and hold the space to enable you to safely and effectively facilitate the release of the emotional component of injury. This missing component of bodywork has a profound impact on patient’s health and well-being. As Peter Levine said.

 Who’s the course for?

All these modalities now use this profound work to reduce pain and increase mobility. Health and well-being can be enhanced on an emotional and physical level. To deepen your understanding of Fascia more details can be found in these articles written by our Fascial Release Tutor and School Director, Emma Gilmore.
