Fascial Manipulation® Level 1 Hybrid Course

08:30 AM AKDT – 06:00 PM AKDT

Description

The FM 1aH – Fascial Manipulation® 1 Hybrid course mixes 13 hours of online learning (Level 1a) and an in-person 3-day course (Level 1b) involving instruction and application of the Fascial Manipulation-Stecco® Method. The online portion is designed to be completed before your in-person lab. You must complete and pass the exam for the online course before the in-person course. You should allow at least one week between the two parts. In addition to this online portion, there will be 1 hour live, online, question and answer session with a course instructor 10 days prior to the onsite portion of the class.

Fascial Manipulation® 1a Hybrid + Webinar

The FM 1aH course includes the basic principles of Fascial Manipulation®, including an introduction to fascial anatomy, and the biomechanical model employed in this method. The myofascial units that form the myofascial sequences of the upper limbs, trunk, and the lower limbs in the sagittal and frontal planes will be presented. The Assessment Chart used in Fascial Manipulation® will be reviewed in detail.

There will be a one-hour evening live webinar 10 days prior  to the start of FM 1b Hybrid. 

Fascial Manipulation® 1b Hybrid

The FM 1bH course covers the physiology of the fascial system and the assessment and treatment of the myofascial units for the upper limbs, trunk, and the lower limbs in the horizontal plane. At the completion of FM-1bH course, all participants will be capable of utilizing the Assessment Chart for a 3D examination of the human fascial system. Proficiency in the comparative examination of Centers of Coordination will be stressed, as well as streamlining of treatment strategies.

Each day will begin at 8:30 am and finish around 6:00 pm. Each level will conclude with an examination to appraise the level of understanding and skill level.

The course registration for Fascial Manipulation® Hybrid 1 costs $1,400 (includes 13-hour online 1a + 1-hour Webinar + 3-day in-person 1b).

Gibbons and Tehan Spinal Manipulation
Essentials Course – POSTPONED TO 2021
Registration – $975
Approved for 2.0 CEUs (20 contact hours)

This course is designed to provide the essential knowledge and skilsl for clinicians with an understanding of the safe delivery of spinal manipulation techniques to progress through basic techniques to the more complicated junctional techniques. For those who have already completed a foundations course the benefit of this program is the opportunity to refresh their knowledge and refine their skills of the basic manipulation techniques before moving through to the more difficult techniques aimed at dysfunction in the junctional regions. The instructors advocate for an approach that uses minimal leverage to achieve cavitation in a safe, comfortable and effective manner.

Peter Gibbons and Philip Tehan are 1975 graduates of the British School of Osteopathy.  Peter is also a medical doctor, and Philip is also a physiotherapist.  They are fabulous teachers, expert practitioners, and hilarious individuals.  You will learn, you will laugh, and you will get to know other manual therapists from all over the U.S.!Therapists and physicians from 20+ states attend each year, and many keep coming back.  More than 500 attendees over the past decade rate the Gibbons and Tehan courses as “THE BEST EVER!”

ESSENTIALS COURSE OBJECTIVES:
At the completion of Essentials, participants will be able to:

Discuss current best evidence relating to the use of High Velocity Low Amplitude (HVLA) thrust techniques.
Describe risks and benefits of HVLA thrust techniques as applicable to each region of the spine.
Demonstrate enhanced proficiency in pre-thrust spinal positioning in the cervical, thoracic, lumbar, and sacroiliac regions.
Demonstrate enhanced proficiency in the delivery of HVLA thrust techniques for cervical, thoracic, lumbar, and sacroiliac regions.
Describe and demonstrate the spinal positioning and locking used in upper cervical, cervicothoracic, and lumbosacral HVLA thrust techniques necessary to ensure patient comfort and safety.
Demonstrate proficiency in delivery of HVLA thrust techniques for the upper cervical, cervicothoracic, and lumbosacral spine.
