Deep Fascia Part Two. Thoracolumbar Fascia
If I had to vote for one of the most important fascias in the human body, it would have to be the Thoracolumbar fascia. I refer to it as the biomechanical fuse box for the whole body and you could probably trace most muscles back there in very few steps. I was teased mercilessly by Tom Myers a few years ago when I said how this was my favourite bit of the body. “It’s a crush. You’ll grow out of it,” he said. I haven’t!
Traditionally it is shown as having three layers to it (although this is disputed by Carla Stecco and André Vleeming) and connects up the upper body, the diaphragm, the psoas and the pelvis. Understanding this layer I believe is one of the keys to successful practice in the field of movement and manual therapy. The under or over stability of this area has knock on effects for the whole body and the way it moves.
I am hugely excited to be sharing some information about an area that I feel could hold the answers to so many structural problems.
My Pilates students have loved my renewed enthusiasm for dealing with their issues through functional movement.

What you get
Each webinar runs for an hour and a half with time for a Q&A when joined live. As well as the presentation and videos, you’ll receive readings and research that supports your learning and access to replays each week for you to watch back anytime. Every Thursday we run a Q&A on our social media platforms for those that were not able to join live. Keep a record of all the Webinars you attend so we can send you a CPD Certificate for your development hours.
Our priority is with our customers. As movement and manual therapists we understand a lot of you will have lost your income or are in the process of adapting and changing. That is why we are only charging £5 for each webinar. However, if you want to pay more and donate a place to those that are struggling we have that option!
