About the course

FM is a manual therapy method developed by Luigi Stecco, a physiotherapist from the north of Italy. This method has evolved over the last 40 years through study and application in the treatment of a vast caseload of musculoskeletal problems. It focuses on the fascia, in particular the deep muscular fascia, including the epimysium and the retinacula and considers that the myofascial system is a three-dimensional continuum.

This method presents a complete biomechanical model that assists in deciphering the role of fascia in musculoskeletal disorders. The mainstay of this manual method lies in the identification of a specific, localised area of the fascia in connection with a specific limited movement.
