Course Description

FMT Blades Advanced

FMT Blades Advanced IASTM Certification introduces the concept of skin/fascial/nerve gliding and neuro-sensory pain 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 and client 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 pain 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. Each participant will keep their soft tissue tool set after this course.

Functional Movement Techniques (FMT) Certification courses are led by industry leading experts in movement assessment and therapy. 


After this course the participant will be able to:

1.Define, understand and integrate the myofascial sequencing model

2.Discover and explore neuroanatomy of the dermal/fascial subsystem

3.Recognize and demonstrate  skin/fascial glide screening process. 

4.Describe and interpret the research of IASTM in respect to connective tissue gliding and pain modulation.

5.Practice, demonstrate and integrate assisted fascial tooling techniques.

6.Analyze and critique the most common cutaneous nerve entrapments of the upper & lower extremity and trunk. 

7.Compare and contrast the ability to provide dry fascial gliding to address cutaneous nerve entrapments.
