FMT Blades & Blades Advanced Certification

Until now, choices were limited if you wanted to learn how instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) could integrate into your patient/athletic care. You had to buy expsensive tools and attend an expensive class that locked you into one way of utlizing IASTM. Not anymore.

 


FMT Blades

Day 1

  • FMT BLADES introduces the concept of movement therapy and performance enhancement via Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM).
  • The FMT Blades certification will review screening dysfunctional movement patterns and utilizing soft tissue tools to improve patient outcomes.
  • The anatomy, physiology and neurology of myofascial soft tissue work is covered. IASTM intervention strategies will also be combined with kinesiology taping and corrective exercise techniques to deliver a comprehensive approach to patient care. workshop, hands-on environment.
  • This course is intended for practitioners and therapists with all levels of experience with soft tissue techniques.

FMT Blades Objectives

After this course the participant will be able to:

  • Understand and integrate the myofascial sequencing model (FASCIAL ANATOMY)
  • Define and discuss the neuroanatomy of the fascial subsystem – VERY IMPORTANT DIFFERENTIATION
  • Identify and demonstrate movement screening techniques to identify faulty movement patterns
  • Recognize and describe the theory and science of IASTM within the literature
  • Practice, demonstrate and integrate assisted fascial tooling with functional kinesiology taping to change body-relative movement quality.
  • Understand and demonstrate the ability to provide dry fascial gliding to promote improved ROM.

FMT Blades Advanced

Day 2 

  • FMT Blades Advanced introduces the concept of skin/fascial/nerve gliding and neuro-sensory discomfort* modulation via Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization.
  • The tools may be hard-edged, but the techniques don’t need to be aggressive to deliver superior patient outcomes.
  • The anatomy, physiology and neurology of myofascial soft tissue work is covered, along with a review of the concept of interlayer connective tissue gliding using a rubber sleeve for added tissue traction 
  • FMT Blades Advanced also addresses discomfort* modulation via specific mechano-reception stimulation using the novel hair comb attachment. This course is intended for practitioners and therapists with a more advanced understanding of soft tissue techniques.

FMT Blades Advanced Objectives

After this course the participant will be able to:

  • Define, understand and integrate the myofascial sequencing model
  • Discover and explore neuroanatomy of the dermal/fascial subsystem
  • Recognize and demonstrate  skin/fascial glide screening process.
  • Describe and interpret the research of IASTM in respect to connective tissue gliding and discomfort* modulation.
  • Practice, demonstrate and integrate assisted fascial tooling techniques.
  • Analyze and critique the most common cutaneous nerve entrapments of the upper & lower extremity and trunk.
  • Compare and contrast the ability to provide dry fascial gliding to address cutaneous nerve entrapments.
