In the last decade, we've seen an explosion of research into fascia.  Researchers and clinicians have joined forces to make new discoveries about human connective tissue, and bring those discoveries into bodywork, physical rehabilitation, meridian therapies, surgery, and many other fields.  What does fascia research tell us about massage therapy?  Could it make us more effective in our decisions and techniques?  Find out more in this compelling 6-hour introduction to Fascia research!

  1. Fascia as a Sensory Organ.  How does fascia generate and communicate sensory information?  Where are the mechanoreceptors located, and how might bodywork techniques create a therapeutic effect?
  2. Fascial Anatomy & Biomechanics.  Say goodbye to 'Saran Wrap' metaphors.  What is the architecture of fascia in the body, and how does it transmit force?  We'll zoom into one region of the body – the Thoracolumbar Fascia -- and use multiple discoveries to enliven our assessments and interventions.
  3. Fascia, Inflammation, and Adhesion.  What generates inflammation in fascial compartments?  What is an adhesion precisely, and how can massage best help?  As an example, we'll try some techniques for finding and treating visceral adhesions in the abdomen.

Michael Hamm LMP CCST maintains a full-time bodywork practice focused on orthopedic injury and trauma recovery.  He teaches anatomy, research literacy, and neurofascial bodywork in Seattle and around the US.  Mike is a Trustee for the Massage Therapy Foundation and co-chair of the Foundation's Best Practices Committee.  He believes that we're witnessing a powerful moment in the history of integrative medicine, and is working to help bodyworkers take part in the conversation.  When not practicing or teaching, Mike plays music in a Seattle band.   To learn more about Mike's work, see www.neurofascia.com
