This Manual Therapy approach is currently considered the newest most popular evidence based scientific manual therapy approach and it is being taught numerous U.S. States and 40+ different countries around the world. Therapists who attend gain a significant competitive advantage towards effectively treating their patients and advancing their practice.
Fascial Manipulation® is effective in treating the most common conditions therapists are working on at a daily basis and is backed by substantial scientific research. A new article entitled “Fascial Manipulation® for chronic aspecific low back pain: a single blinded ranomized controlled trial” by Branchini et al. is now available through the following link:
This article demonstrates the importance of the pathology of the fascia in aspecific low back pain and the effectiveness of Fascial Manipulation® in the reduction of symptoms.
The Fascial Manipulation® Certification Program is an intensive hands-on series taught by Dr. Antonio Stecco & Dr. Warren Hammer. It combines theoretical lectures, demonstrations, and practicals throughout each course day.

Participants will learn to evaluate musculoskeletal dysfunctions with specific reference to the human fascial system, and to apply the Fascial Manipulation method as created by Luigi Stecco, PT. Lectures include the anatomy and physiology of the fascial system, an explanation of the biomechanical model used in application of this technique, and the anatomical localization of key fascial points. Emphasis will be placed on the evaluation of musculoskeletal dysfunctions (from history taking, to a hypothesis, to a verification and treatment) together with a methodology and strategy for treatment.
This program consists of two levels: Level 1 Fascial Manipulation® and Level 2 Fascial Manipulation®. Each level is divided into two parts, FM-1a, FM-1b, and FM-2a, FM-2b. Successful completion of Level 1 is required before attending Level 2.
Each level is designed to give participants adequate time (4-6 weeks) to practice the newly acquired assessment and treatment techniques before returning to the second half of the course for fine-tuning of the method. Each level will conclude with an examination to appraise the level of understanding and skill level.
The Fascial Manipulation® series is intended for physical therapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, medical doctors, and other licensed health care practitioners with a good working knowledge of musculoskeletal anatomy, physiology and notions of postural analysis. Massage therapists with a minimum of three years of experience may be eligible but need to contact us prior to registering to review their eligibility.
