FASCIAL TRAINING – Fisicamente Formazione


Movement is essential to restore optimal motor function after manual treatment. Fascial Training is a valuable tool for all physiotherapists and pilates instructors involved in rehabilitation or post-rehabilitation: a totally innovative training method, based on a wide range of free-body exercises, which aims to restore strength, flexibility and agility training the fascial system, developed by Anna Maria Vitali according to the principles of the Stecco method

The course is divided into 2 modules FASCIA in MOTION and FASCIA in ACTION:


The first module includes a theoretical part that introduces the basic elements for understanding the evolution of the hembiological development, anatomy, physiology, innervation and biomechanics of the fascial system. In this module we will review the structure of the trunk and limbs, to integrate the concept of breathing and the Core, with the function of balance, vision, chewing and with that of the extremities. The role of the fascial system in coordination and posture will be highlighted according to the principle of sequences by Luigi Stecco. The practical part introduces the criteria of postural assessment and a series of exercises aimed at stimulating the coordination, strength and flexibility of the trunk and limbs.


The second module explores the theoretical part, analyzing the structure of aponeuroses, tendons and retinacula and receptors housed in the fascial system. The analysis of the structure of the trunk bands and limbs and their role in proprioception and coordination of dynamic activities will be completed, according to the principles of the Stecco method spirals. In the practical part the criteria of postural evaluation and the study of dynamic exercises will be deepened, aimed at stimulating the proprioception, agility, and elasticity of the trunk and limbs, to optimize dynamic activities.

Who is it for?

This course is highly recommended for physiotherapists, graduates in Exercise Science, Personal Trainer, Pilates and Yoga teachers, and all movement experts.
