Professional Training and practical skills

This workshop will provide you with the foundation framework to begin, or enhance, your soft tissue and myofascial training. It also offers progression on to the Certificate in Integrated Myofascial Therapy (CiMFT) or the Advanced Clinical Diploma in Integrated Myofascial Therapy (AdvDipiMFT). 

About this course

Myofascial Release (MFR) is a valuable, exciting and dynamic approach suitable for all therapists embarking on their first myofascial and soft tissue training. It also offers skill enhancement and technique refinement for those therapists with existing skills.

Whether you are a physiotherapist, sports massage therapist or soft tissue manual therapist, this course provides the fundamental principles of working with the soft tissues of the body.

MFR UK is a leading training provider with 20 years of experience in delivering informative, practical and professional workshops. This foundation course will increase your therapeutic effectiveness and provide enhanced clinical outcomes that are both measurable and functional. 

 Covid-19 brought the need for therapists to think outside the box. Fascia Fundamentals not only gives you great hands-on skills but also offers you an introduction to valuable self-care approaches and easy-to-understand body reading and postural assessment which can be done via video conferencing as well as face-to-face in your treatment room.

This course can be used as CPD but also provides an access route to the Certificate in Integrated Myofascial Therapy (CiMFT) or the Advanced Clinical Diploma in Integrated Myofascial Therapy (AdvDipiMFT). *

*Therapists have the option to upgrade from the Fascia Fundamentals workshop to CiMFT or AdvDipiMFT. CiMFT must be completed prior to AdvDipiMFT. It is not mandatory for therapists to complete Fascia Fundamentals as a pre-requisite to CiMFT or AdvDipiMFT however, please see the specific core qualification pre-requisites on the CiMFT and AdvDioiMFT pages. Please contact us for the detail of the preferential upgrade costs.
