Fascia Integration Therapy
A new functional concept based on recent developments in the fascinating field of fascia. Unique for this concept is the Fascia Functional Assessment (FFA). This consists of a selected number of functional tests by which you can assess total body functioning and locate myofascial problems. We don't just focus on local pain areas but always look at the total picture. The results of the FFA will guide you in the myofascial treatment and training. It is also used for re-assessment to monitor the functional progress. We always aim at immediate improvement.
In these courses:
we won't focus purely on the location of the pain but always will assess the total functioning of the patient
you will learn to assess this function by using our Fascia Functional Assessment (FFA)
you will learn to identify the location of fascial restrictions based on this FFA and palpation even when these restrictions are not where the patient experiences pain
you will learn to guide your treatment based on a sound clinical reasoning process
you will learn many manual techniques to de-activate trigger points
you will learn to mobilise fascial restrictions in an very effective way
you will learn to train fascia to become stronger and more resilient
find new ways to treat complex disorders like whiplash, fibromyalgia, hypermobility syndrome etc.
get a full up-date on the recent insight in the function of fascia
make your treatment even more effective with the use of special tools: instrument assisted soft tissue mobilisation (IASTM)
and much more.......

The Fascia Integration Therapy concept is based on the recent research of, among many others, Peter Huijing, Andry Vleeming, Antonio, Carla and Luigi Stecco, Robert Schleip, Jay Shah, Jaap van der Wal, Helene Langevin, Max Roman, Hans Chaudhry and Donald Ingber.
The concept was developped by Alexander Kudus and Ernst van der Wijk in 2013. In 2014 the first physiotherapists were trained in the Erasmus University Hospital in Rotterdam. Now rapidly increasing. The training has got accreditation from both official physiotherapy associations KNGF (Royal Dutch Physiotherapy Association) and Keurmerk Fysiotherapie. From 2015-2017 the first international courses were given in the Carol Divila University of Medicine and Pharmacy in Bucharest, Romania. In 2017 F.I.T. Romania was founded, our first daughter school. This year we will take the concept to Italy and South Africa.
