Meet the Fascial System!
Often underrepresented in anatomical studies, fascia is a rich and dynamic system that holds the answers to many questions of how our bodies move, get injured, and recover.
Join us in the CLASSROOM, in the DISSECTION LAB, and then integrate your new understanding by taking it to the MASSAGE TABLE. Learn the organization of fascia up close. SEE it, TOUCH it, UNDERSTAND it, and take your palpation skills next level.
Registration is now open! Prices increase starting December 24.

Journey into the Matrix delves into fascial anatomy, exploring the types of fascia — from superficial to deep — and how they relate to each. From the densely packed collagen fibers of the IT Band to the slippery-slidey gels of loose connective tissue, you will learn about fascia all the way down to the micro-world of the extracellular matrix. See it, touch it, and take your palpation skills next level. Our curriculum is broken down into these sections:
Here is an overview of the structure of this workshop. Completion of all segments is required. Thank you for planning accordingly.
