Upcoming Foundations in Myofascial Release Seminars

The Foundations Seminars Approach to Myofascial Release is an easy to learn treatment modality, as well as an entirely fresh way of viewing the body. Designed to get you started right away, Foundations in Myofascial Release seminars will allow you to successfully integrate Myofascial Release into your treatment regime. Walt Fritz, PT, and Foundations Seminars specialize in small group trainings with a high degree of one-on-one instruction. You will not be disappointed. The Foundations Approach presents manual therapy training in a logical and plausible fashion, using widely accepted nerve-based models of explanation, and eliminating the woo.

As of 2016, Foundations in Myofascial Release Seminars will be restructured. Gone will be Foundations I and II, as confusion between which is entry level and which is a second level class led to great confusion (both are entry level). They are being replaced with:

Foundations in Myofascial Release Seminar: The Upper Body
and
Foundations in Myofascial Release Seminar: The Lower Body

The Myofascial Release for Head and Neck Disorders will remain unchanged except for a new name:

Foundations in Myofascial Release for Neck, Voice, and Swallowing Disorders Seminar
