FASCIA TRAINING DISSECTION
FASCIA-SPECIFIC DISSECTION COURSES FOR ATHLETIC TRAINERS, PHYSICAL THERAPISTS, AND MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS
The Fascia Training Dissection Course provides an expert dissection of the body’s different systems, focusing on the interconnectedness of the fascia system using a fresh-tissue cadaver with untreated tissues in their natural, flexible state. Led by Master Dissector, Todd Garcia, and facilitated by the founder of the Fascia Research Society, Tom Findley, MD Ph.D., this precise dissection of the human body allows participants to better understand how joints, muscles, and fascia tissue work together to distribute and amplify force. It also allows for first-hand exploration of anatomical structures and tissues in ways that can’t be done in surgery or with modern medical imaging equipment. These exclusive courses are designed to take coaches, personal trainers, fitness instructors, physical therapists, sports performance doctors, clinicians, and other movement professionals to the next level of their practice.
