Every practising bodywork therapist needs to know about Fascia. This is the third biennial Symposium, focusing on the therapist.  It is practice-led with research content made accessible.  ROBERT SCHLEIP leads a team of top speakers, workshop facilitators and an Expert Advisory Panel, all designed to expand the therapist’s understanding of a fascinating structure; this will, in turn, inform and enhance your clinical practice.

We offer delegates:

  • Networking opportunities
