FMT Blades

Functional Movement Techniques - the most advanced IASTM methodology.

Until now, choices were limited if you wanted to learn how instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) could integrate into your patient/athlete care. You had to buy expensive tools and attend an expensive class that locked you into one way of utilizing IASTM. Not anymore.

FMT Blades is an 8Hr IASTM certification led by industry leading experts in movement assessment and therapy AND you get to keep the tools you use in the class. FMT Blades introduces the concept of movement therapy and performance enhancement via Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM). The tools may be hard-edged, but the techniques don’t need to be aggressive to deliver superior patient outcomes.

The FMT Blades certification will review screening dysfunctional movement patterns and utilizing soft tissue tools to improve patient treatment. The anatomy, physiology and MOST IMPORTANTLY the neurology of myofascial soft tissue work is covered, along with supporting research. IASTM intervention strategies will also be combined with kinesiology taping and corrective exercise techniques to deliver a comprehensive approach to patient care.

Register for a class and join the ranks of FMT Certified movement professionals.

This course is intended for practitioners and therapists with all levels of experience with soft tissue techniques. Each participant will keep their soft tissue tool set after this course. All supplies needed for the course are provided. CEUs may be offered for DC, ATC, PT, OT, LMTs – depending on location and class type.

After this course the participant will be able to:

  1. Understand and integrate the myofascial sequencing model (FASCIAL ANATOMY)
  2. Define and discuss the neuroanatomy of the fascial subsystem – VERY IMPORTANT DIFFERENTIATION
  3. Identify and demonstrate movement screening techniques to identify faulty movement patterns
  4. Recognize and describe the theory and science of IASTM within the literature
  5. Practice, demonstrate and integrate assisted fascial tooling with functional kinesiology taping to change body-relative movement quality.
