Objectives
[+] [-] 020990 - Advanced IASTM Practitioner Certification
  1. Review the myofascial sequencing model and discuss the neuroanatomy of the dermal/fascial subsystem
  2. Evaluate the research on IASTM with respect to connective tissue gliding and pain modulation
  3. Demonstrate skin/fascial glide screening process
  4. Practice, demonstrate, and integrate advanced fascial tooling techniques
  5. Identify the most common cutaneous nerve entrapments of the trunk and extremities
  6. Apply dry fascial gliding treatments to address cutaneous nerve entrapments

[+] [-] 021220 - IASTM Practitioner Certification
  1. Describe the myofascial sequencing model
  2. Identify theoretical constructs behind the science of IASTM
  3. Discuss the neuroanatomy of skin and the fascial subsystem
  4. Demonstrate movement screening techniques to identify faulty motor patterns
  5. Practice IASTM techniques in conjunction with kinesiology taping and functional movement
  6. Apply IASTM treatments for acute and chronic injuries, pain modulation, scar tissue and many conditions affecting the upper and lower body, utilizing methods that prevent bruising and hand fatigue
