Fascial Manipulation is a manual therapy that has been developed by Luigi Stecco, an Italian physiotherapist.
Focusing on fascia, it considers the myofascial system as a three-dimensional continuum.
This method presents a complete biomechanical model that assists in deciphering the role of fascia in
In recent years, Prof. Carla Srecco MD and Dr. Antonio Stecco MD have carried out extensive research into the
anatomy and histology of the fascia via dissection of unembalmed cadavers in Italy and France. These dissections
have provided new histological and anatomical data including the existence of myotendinous expansions between
segments, the multi-layer structure of deep fascia and the abundant innervation of the tissue by mechanoreceptors
and free nerve endings.
The mainstay of the manual method developed by L. Stecco lies in the identification of specific, localised areas of
the fascia in connection with specific limited movements. Once a limited or painful movement is identified, then a
specific point on the fascia is implicated and, through the appropriate manipulation of this precise part of fascia,
movement can be restored.

Who should attend?
Fascial Manipulation courses are intended for medical doctors, physiotherapists, osteopaths and chiropractors. Other
registered health practitioners with at least two years of experience and a good working knowledge of
musculoskeletal anatomy and physiology and notions of postural analysis maybe accepted after submission of their
Fascial Manipulation Courses
Fascial Manipulation Certification course is divided into two levels (6 days per level):
Level 1 – Addresses the myofascial sequences of the body and the Centres of Coordination, small
areas where altered
fascia causing dysfunctions within the musculoskeletal system are most common.
Level 2 – Consolidates clinical application and introduces Centres of Fusion, points that are
extremely important for
On Level 1 and 2 participants learn to evaluate musculoskeletal dysfunctions in reference to the human fascial
system, and to apply the Fascial Manipulation method as taught by Luigi Stecco. Lessons include fascial anatomy and
physiology, the biomechanical model used in application of this method and the anatomical localisation of key
fascial points. Theory lessons demonstrations, and practice between participants alternate during the day.
