– Prerequisites: There are no prerequisites for this class
– Course materials are distributed electronically, so we ask that you provide a valid email address which is regularly checked, as well as your preferred phone contact.
– No massage lotions/oils are needed, in fact, we ask that you not apply any makeup, lotions or oils during any day of the class, as myofascial release is a dry modality. Also, we ask that you bring along appropriate lab clothing each day, which would be a loose-fitting T-shirt or tank top and a loose-fitting pair of shorts.


About the Course

This two day, highly interactive class will provide the therapist a solid grounding in the use of myofascial release (MFR) and other neurologically-based manual therapies for the treatment pain and movement disorders. The evidence and science will be reviewed, as well as the anatomy and physiology of the nervous system, the fascia, and corresponding muscle groups it supports. The majority of the course will be spent on supervised hands-on practice to develop comfort and expertise in performing these techniques. Key techniques and concepts bear repeating, and you will have adequate time to develop a comfort level working from a manual therapy perspective, no matter your background and training/experience. Appropriate patient selection will be reviewed and comparison will be made between various techniques to achieve optimal results for each patient, based on his or her presenting symptoms. The addition of myofascial release to an existing clinical skill set will allow the therapy professional to provide intervention to patients with issues that were previously not addressable. The participant will leave this course prepared to utilize myofascial release on his or her first day back to clinic.

For therapists with a background in myofascial release, and similar manual therapies, Walt’s approach will provide a fresh and modern perspective on the effects of manual care. For therapists not yet exposed to myofascial release, they will find effective manual care presented from a simple to understand perspective. With the goal of improving outcomes, Walt’s well-developed Feedback Loop is useful for all forms of intervention.

About the Instructor

Walt Fritz PT is a physical therapist with a private practice in Rochester, NY USA and head of the Foundations in Myofascial Release Seminar™ Series. He received his physical therapy degree from the State University of New York-Buffalo. He has presented workshops internationally to health professionals since 1995. He has taken the traditional narrative associated with myofascial release and updated it to reflect more widely accepted beliefs and understanding about the body and pain and relies on concepts of pain science, rather than folklore. Walt has taught his version of MFR with a sense of humor and humility throughout the USA and Canada.
