Myofascial Structural Series Parts 1, 2 & 3

‘MFR is not just about learning a technique. It’s about refining your kinesthetic touch, understanding imbalance and dysfunction and then using those skills to create, pain-free, structural integrity’.

Whether you have experience in using MFR in your practice or are new to the approach, our aim is to teach you more than techniques. It’s not what you do, it’s how you do it.

Our workshops not only demonstrate the importance and understanding of soft tissue dysfunction but also how to feel for system-wide fascial restrictions which are contributing to pain and imbalance. Techniques are used to create structural integrity where the art of the approach is to tailor each individual application with kinesthetic awareness, dialoguing skills and intuition.

MFR UK Workshops

Which over 15 years of teaching and clinical excellence, MFR UK is a pioneer in delivering highly practical workshops supported with a high standard of theory, provide valuable ‘tools for the toolbox’ which therapists can integrate into their practice straight away. Students attend these workshops in order and they provide effective techniques for the entire body. Some students ask if they can skip Part 1 as they’ve attended MFR workshops with other training providers.Each part of the

Structural Series Workshops provide a 1-day online home study course that you won’t get anywhere else. These online courses includes fascial theory, current research and clinical MFR application pertinent to the particular workshop. All 9 days of the Structural Series (6 days attendance and 3 home study online) offer a greater understanding of fascia and an excellent skills base.

Part 1 does not mean foundation, it is 1 part of a 3 part series and whilst we introduce techniques in the part 1 workshop, it also offers valuable and effective techniques for the shoulders, neck and hips which you need to know to be able to build on in subsequent workshops. Part 2 offers techniques for the pelvis and cranium and part 3 offers techniques for the thorax and TMJ.

Technique videos are also available to all students after workshop attendance at an extra charge. The parts 1, 2 and 3 videos are each over an hour long and offer a reminder of hand placements, technique application, dialoguing and treatment responses.

Structural Series Part 1

The Structural Series Part 1 is delivered in a 2-day attendance workshop and a 1-day online theory course providing 3 days of CPD.

This workshop provides excellent techniques for the shoulders and hip and also introduces the student to a variety of effective fascial therapeutic applications.

Pre-requisite – core education training qualification in a bodywork therapy including anatomy and physiology – minimum UK national occupational standard level 3.

The participant will:

  • Examine the development of fascia, its structural function and dysfunction and examine the physiological effects of a variety of fascial release techniques
  • Learn observation and palpatory diagnostic skills
  • Learn various fascial release application and specific techniques for the shoulders, neck, and extremities
  • Learn the fundamental fascial cross hand release, transverse planes, arm/leg pulls and active and passive soft tissue techniques
  • Explore fascial rehabilitation and self-care approaches.

Please see our eligibility for attendance to our MFR workshops here.

A CPD certificate of attendance will be provided after the workshop for both the online course the practical attendance workshop.

The Structural Series Part 2

The Structural Series Part 2 is delivered in a 2-day attendance workshop and a 1-day online theory course providing 3 days of CPD.

This workshop provides excellent diagnostic skills and therapeutic applications for the pelvis and cranium.

Pre-requisite the Structural Series Part 1.
