What is Fascia?

According to Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary, fascia is defined as "a fibrous membrane covering, supporting, and separating muscles. It also unites the skin with underlying tissue. Fascia may be superficial, a nearly subcutaneous covering permitting free movement of the skin, or it may be deep, enveloping and binding muscles."

Fascia provides structure and support throughout your body. It holds your muscles together, which allows them to contract and stretch. It provides a smooth surface for your muscles, joints and organs to slide against each other without creating any friction or tears.

Suggested Background

To get the most out of the AMTA Fascial Therapy Continuing Education Program, it is suggested that participants have accomplished the following:

  • Graduated from a minimum 500 in-class hour, entry-level massage therapy school
  • Have three years or more of massage therapy experience
  • Proof of current state or provincial licensure (where applicable), or certification by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB)
  • Successful completion of the online courses before taking the workshop
  • A strong understanding of anatomy, physiology and research are recommended

Check with your massage therapy regulatory board to ensure you are in compliance with the defined scope of practice before studying or practicing any new method or modality.
