Functional Fascia Webinar Series
for Manual and Movement Therapists

Register Here

Following the changes to our schedule in the wake of the coronavirus, we are pleased to announce a series of two hour webinars, detailing dissection, anatomy, function and fascia.

Over the last 12 years Julian Baker has been collecting hundreds of hours of video and thousands of pictures from the dissection classes he has run all over the world.

In this unique series of webinars, he will be going over some of the major aspects of anatomical form and function and bringing a new way of thinking about anatomy that is more relevant and logical to hands on therapists and movement practitioners.
As well as leading dissection classes, Julian has been a hands on therapist for over 30 years and has an insight into anatomy and manual therapy that is unique in the world today.
In the second of these webinars he will be talking about superficial fascia and adipose tissue, the interface between the skin and the deep fascia and muscle. A poorly understood and poorly described layer, the superficial fascia is the structure that is the ‘first responder’ to manual therapy. What is it. what’s in it and what does it do?
In order to make this information as accessible as possible, this session will cost just £5. Register here. Registration guarantees a place in the webinar room on the night.

The Note Taking Dvd

Poor notes put you at risk.
Learn how to ask the right questions, gather relevant information and build clear markers to show the week-to-week changes that you initiate. Study this resource and you will achieve better results, improved outcomes and have happier clients.

Each class we run, we make recycled lab coats available for delegates to hire, with all the proceeds going to WaterAid.  This year so far we have raised over £400 to build wells and access to water to help some of the 650 million people worldwide who live without access to clean, safe water.


Julian is a great teacher and very funny. He has a fantastic knowledge of anatomy and makes even the most boring
body part fascinating.

Sara Pugh


Julian is a great tutor. He explains things in detail and visually which is so helpful for the dyslexics among us.
Every body worker would benefit from at least attending his course.

Linda Freeman


The way you (Julian) are teaching is really profound.
