FASCIATEGRITY

The Myths, the Mystery and the Truth
about Fascia and Biotensegrity in Practice

Three module LIVE COURSE with Joanne Avison and John Sharkey

September – October – November 2019

MODULE 1

FASICATEGRITY – Essential Background

Fascia is everywhere in the body, as a dominant feature of the Human Architecture. We will look at what the term “architecture” means in this context and why “Fasciategrity” gives us a new way of seeing natural forms in motion, that is so essential to any and all disciplines in manual and movement therapy. In this first webinar in the series of three, let’s ask three essential questions:

  • What are the myths about Fascia that we inherited from Classical notions about the human body?
  • What is the essential difference between the classical and contemporary views of anatomy from the perspective of fascia and why does this matter for our practice?
  • How do Biotensegrity and Fascia offer the bridge between the past and the present?

MODULE 2

FASICATEGRITY – What is the Code?

MODULE 3

FASICATEGRITY – Why will it make such a Difference??
