Functional Fascial Taping®

This clinically based workshop teaches the FFT method which is ideal for those therapists who need to instantly control their patients pain to reduce muscle inhibition and allow you to proceed with your treatment.

FFT® is a unique way to create an immediate and often significant analgesic effect and increase range of movement, facilitating accelerated rehabilitation of musculoskeletal pathologies. Video cases studies showing its effect are available on www.fft.net.au along with a number of the testimonials and articles published on the topic. FFT is non-invasive, cost effective and can be applied to most regions of the body with equally impressive results. The method has an objective assessment procedure that is functionally assessed and functionally applied for pain free movement to encourage normal movement patterns. The patient is treated in the position they get their problem.

FFT® can be applied to most musculoskeletal pathologies and was founded and refined by Ron Alexander during eight years service as the Principal Soft Tissue therapist [Musculoskeletal] for The Australian Ballet. Ron has presented FFT to the International Olympic Committee World Congress, Fifth Interdisciplinary World Congress on Lower Back and Pelvic Pain and the Fascia Research Congress. FFT has been shown to be significantly better than placebo in a Randomised Double Blind Placebo Controlled Study [PhD] at Deakin University, Melbourne Australia.

FFT is now used by Physiotherapists, Osteopaths and Massage Therapists (recently Chiropractors) in Finland, Israel, Middle East, Guernsey, USA, South Africa, Hong Kong, Singapore, England, Scotland, New Zealand and Australia.

You will learn taping techniques, FFT principles and concepts that can be applied to most musculoskeletal pathologies and can be immediately incorporated in your clinic/club.

The following programme is taught to serve as a framework for the treatment of multiple conditions presented to therapists.
