The practitioner will apply pressure to the body, working the entire fascial system in a systematic way. When restricted fascia is released and lengthened the body can return to its structurally optimal position. SI system of 10 sessions uses slow strokes and deep pressure on contracted muscles, while the client performs small muscle movement to optimally stretch the connective tissue/fascia. Trainer: James Earls, UK (October 4-8, 2017).

  56. Workshop on Myofascial Induction Therapy (MIT) approach, in Bengaluru, India. MIT is a hands-on full body approach, focusing on restoration of altered body function. In this process of assessment and treatment, the practitioner applies gentle manual mechanical stress transfer (traction or/and compression) to a targeted dysfunctional tissue. The outcome is a reciprocal reaction from the body that involves biochemical, signalling, metabolic, and finally physiological responses. This is primarily a tuition process, in the search for a restored homeostasis: recovering range of motion, appropriate tension, strength and, mainly, movements coordination. The term “induction” relates to the recovery of movement facilitation rather than a passive stretching of the fascial system. Trainer: Andrzej Pilat, Spain (October 4-8, 2017).

  59. Workshop on Fascial Distortion Model (FDM) in Bengaluru, India.
