Deepen Your Skillset By Learning a System that Honors The Individualized Context of Your Patients & Clients


Most movement professionals were taught to respond to their patients/clients based on traditional structure based protocols and techniques. Unfortunately, such approaches rarely consider the unique complexities of the individual. The Functional Soft Tissue Transformation (FSTT) specialization teaches you a system for treating and training your patients and clients so that instead of fixing parts or pathologies, you can design individualized treatment that leads to improved outcomes.

FSTT is rooted in three foundational principles: (1) Optimizing the sensory experience of patients/clients; (2) Expanding their options for movement; and (3) Developing movement integrity. With this foundation, FSTT will empower you to understand and utilize the global, local, and manual movement spectrum, learn how to identify abnormal tensions in the body, select appropriate loading for testing and treating, design plans to improve movement integrity, and identify and resolve dysfunction when treating soft tissue.
