Event Details

Join soft tissue specialist Steven Goldstein on his ‘Fascial Therapy’ 2-day workshop integrating the direct and indirect forms of soft-tissue and fascial applications.
With over 20 years experience of delivering workshops in his home country of Australia and internationally, Steve will provide a wealth of knowledge coupled with effective and easy to use manual therapy approaches which can be integrated into any soft tissue clinical practice. This workshop is suitable for any and all manual therapists wishing to enhance their treatment effectiveness regardless of prior postgraduate fascial or soft tissue training.

For any therapist who has prior fascial and soft tissue training, Steve’s treatment approaches will add another therapeutic dimension to your current skills offering greater scope for treatment efficacy and enhancing kinaesthetic awareness.

Fascial therapy offers an emphasis on more than technique. Is the skilled integration of embodied mindfulness with sensitive and light touch applications which stimulate the autonomic nervous system de-stressing the body and mind. The ‘Fascial Therapy’ workshops are often referred to as a ‘bodywork’ whole body, mind-body holistic course. This special event workshop will provide the student with an enhanced sense of touch and easy to use effective skills for treating chronic and acute pain.
