Course Description

MAP is the abbreviation for Myofascial Activated Posture. Research on fascia have become more prevalent. After attending fascial research workshops and Fascia Congresses in Germany it has become clear that several concepts around movement rehabilitation have changed.

These workshop and congresses include:

  • Fascial Fitness: Munich 2014
  • Fascial research congress: Leipzig 2016
  • Connect Sport and Fascia congress: Ulm 2017
  • 5th International Fascia Research Congress: Berlin 2018
  • 10th Interdisciplinary World Congress on low back and pelvic girdle pain 2019

Movement happens in fascial planes and not in isolated muscle contraction. MAP introduction and trainer courses are movement courses addressing the misconceptions around movement and training of posture. During MAP courses the emphasis is on movement and not on manual therapy techniques.

Course Outline:

  • The MAP Movement Concept: introduction to muscle meridian theory vs muscle isolation theory.
