Advanced Fascial Release Diploma

Advanced Fascial Release Diploma.
Our Advanced Fascial Release Diploma is unique to the School of Bodywork. The diploma takes place over 16 days, in separate modules. You can therefore attend modules at a pace to suit you. All our tutors have studied to an exceptionally high level in fascial work, energy work and or craniosacral work. We therefore deliver a safe, effective and highly sought after diploma. Once you have completed our fascial release foundation, intermediate and accomplished levels, you can then go on to our advanced training which consist of 7 further days in order to complete your APNT Diploma.


Entry requirement: Massage Qualification (or another bodywork modality – please email to check if yours is acceptable) and A&P to level 3. You will be asked for proof of qualifications when booking. If you do not have a suitable qualification then we recommend you take our Complete Bodyworker Diploma training – more information here

Diploma requirements: In order to fulfil the requirements for the APNT Advanced Fascial Release Diploma, you will be required to complete case studies (4 people treated 6 times each). Plus complete a treatment diary, with 60 entries of treating patients with Fascial Release techniques. Attend a practical and oral examination: Date: Thursday 19th November 2020.

Sadly we cannot refund your deposit, unless at least 4 weeks notice is given. In which case the deposit can be transferred to another course. Your deposit will confirm your place on the course and therefore your commitment to training.

Learn how to facilitate and experience myofascial unwinding. This is the spontaneous movement of the body or body part during an Fascial Release treatment. This safe and effective technique releases restrictions and emotional holding patterns from the subconscious, therefore facilitating recovery.

Blown away today to watch a baby turn itself from breech to cephalic during myofascial release work at an awesome School of Bodywork study day. The mother was so much more comfortable after the baby turned and grinned from ear to ear. It was so gentle and permissive. Truly the baby chose to turn. Somehow the therapist merely held the space which enabled this. The change in the mother’s demeanour was profound from tense and experiencing chronic pain since 11/40 to smiling happy and comfortable. She told us the baby was moving big movements about 10 minutes into the treatment. The therapist’s hands were still. We could easily see the baby’s movements and all of us noticed the changed shape of her belly after the release. She was kind enough to let me palpate afterwards, already convinced her belly felt quite different at the top. It looked so gentle and led by the baby. I was in awe and still am.
