Fascial Therapy Intro Course Modules 1-3 with Steve Goldstein


Module 1 Outline: Cardinal Lines of Myofascial Tension/Myofascial Concepts, Theory & Principles, with Direct MFR Applications

The participant is introduced to the theory and concepts that underpin Fascial Therapy. Included is a brief survey of fascial anatomy and the integral concept of ‘tensegrity’.
Models and patterns of myofascial chains are presented to give the viewer an opportunity to compare and contrast patterns that are used to assess myofascial restrictions.
We then de-construct Thomas Myers primary cardinal lines of myofascial tension by viewing the elements of the superficial back and superficial front lines…….. More


Module 2 Outline: Direct & Indirect Applications

Module 2 bridges direct with indirect modalities that effect the myofascial soft-tissue. This includes how Fascial Therapy has utilised modified MET Muscle Energy Technique to effect joint and ligamentous mechano-sensory receptor change through the interface of the central and autonomic nervous systems.

We will unpack the structures of Myers anatomy Train model for the lateral line and augment that with three-dimensional Fascial Therapy releases that include ‘levering’ of connect long bones of the body, body rolling releases and approximation of position and gravity to change vertebral spinal joint receptors. Lastly in this module will look at supporting and holding technique that has polyvagal effects. Along with a discussion of the expression of the autonomic nervous system, avoiding autonomic exhaustion and protocol for somato-emotional releasing…….More


Module 3 Outline: Levering Techniques for Upper and Lower Extremities; Myofascial Arm Lines: Structure, Assessment, Palpation & Technique

In Module 3 the important part of Fascial Articulations is introduced through joint levering and modified MET. This is integrated through detailing Myers Myofascial Arm Lines in his anatomy Train model. We watch how his structure and template is utilised in the Fascial Therapy model. This is achieved through applied techniques to the upper extremities, axial spine, scapula, thorax and pelvis. Complexity is achieved through ‘stacking’ various levering both uni-lateral and paired in short and long positioning from supine and side-lying positions…….More
