    Fascial Manipulation© is a manual therapy that has been developed by Luigi Stucco PT, in collaboration with his children Carla Stecco and Antonio Stecco (both MDs, PhDs), over the last 40 years. Focusing on fascia and in particular the deep muscular fascia. FM considers the myofascial system as a three-dimensional continuum.

    This method presents a complete biomechanical model that assists in deciphering the role of fascia in musculoskeletal disorders. In recent years, both Carla and Antonio Stecco have carried out extensive research into the anatomy and histology of the fascia via dissection of unembalmed cadavers in Italy and other countries. These dissections have provided new histological and anatomical data including the existence of myotendinous expansions between segments, the multi-layered structure of deep fascia and the abundant innervation of this tissue by mechanoreceptors and free nerve endings.

    The mainstay of the manual method developed by Luigi Stecco lies in the identification of specific, localized areas of the fascia in connection with specific limited movements. Once a limited or painful movement is identified, then a specific point on the fascia is implicated and through the appropriate manipulation of this precise part of the fascia, movement can be restored.

     

    The Fascial Manipulation® Level 1 (FM-1) course consists of two three-day courses, called FM-1a and FM-1b, that need to be taken within 4-6 weeks of each other. This is to assure a good understanding of the underlying biomechanical rationale and mastery of the techniques presented.

    FM-1a – The First 3-day Course

    Course FM-1a consists of;

    • Introduction to the basic principles of Fascial Manipulation® method
    • Introduction to fascial anatomy
    • Introduction to the biomechanical model employed by the Fascial Manipulation® method
    • Define the myofascial units that form the myofascial sequences of the upper limbs, trunk, and the lower limbs in the sagittal and frontal planes.
    • Learn about the Assessment Chart used in Fascial Manipulation® method.

    FM-1b – The Second 3-day Course

    Course FM-1b will consist of

    • In-depth study of the physiology of the fascial system
    • Assessment and treatment of the myofascial units for the upper limbs, trunk, and the lower limbs in the horizontal plane.
    • Instruction on the utilization of the Assessment Chart for a 3D examination of the human fascial system
    • Streamlining comprehensive treatment strategies
    • A proficiency exam of the Centers of Coordination
