What is Functional Soft Tissue Transformation?

Assess and address soft tissues from a functional perspective.  In our two-day intensive, practitioners will utilize a simple to follow systematic formula for assessing and addressing the soft tissue complex. In this class we will analyze motion with an emphasis on aberrant tension development followed by strategies to address findings.  This system is built to fit within other models.

Attendees will spend hands-on time adding to their assessment skills both globally (off table) and locally (on table).  This course is designed by practitioners for practitioners and is 95% hands-on-learn-by-doing therefore strengthening your practical day-to-day skill set.

FSTT Frequently Asked Questions


How is this different than other soft tissue courses?

Although we believe you should learn from everyone. Our course is founded on movement, functional-individual movement. Therefore, in evaluation/assessment your focus will be on how the patient/client moves not listed/labeled structures. This changes the application of techniques dramatically as it involves an immediate thought process as opposed to a memorized protocol. No protocols only processes that empower you to be a more proficient practitioner.

What should I wear to the course?

This course is 90% hands-on, which means you will be moving and being moved. Please bring or wear shorts for the lower extremity courses and sports bra for the spine and upper extremity courses.

What is the attendee instructor ratio?

All attendees will practice with instructors with EVERY procedure. The class size is small for this reason. We want to ensure you feel comfortable applying what you learned immediately. In fact we will stay late if needed.

“ The soft tissue ... is the perfect complement to functional rehabilitation and training. It is consistent with the principles of Applied Functional Science, and working directly on the tissues facilitates the efficient movement patterns that we all seek ”
