Dr. Robert Schleip in Los Angeles - July 2020

PRELIMINARY WORKSHOP ANNOUNCEMENT!!!


FASCIA AS A SENSORY AND EMOTIONAL ORGAN: Implementing new insights from connective tissue research into myofascial treatment practice


WHEN: FRIDAY JULY 10 - SUNDAY JULY 12, 2020

TIME: TBD

WHERE: LOS ANGELES AREA - Venue to be determined

  • Objective 1: Understand the proprioceptive function of the human fascial net
  • Objective 2: Understand the functions of different mechanoreceptor types in fasciae: Golgi-, Pacini-, Ruffini- and free nerve endings Each with preferred location, mechanical sensitivity and expected physiological response
  •  Objective 3: Understand the interoceptive function of fascia, including the role of visceral and cutaneous receptors for body image formation and emotional conditioning
  • Objective 4: Understand of the detailed connections between fascial tonicity and the autonomic nervous system
  • Objective 5: Understand biotensegrity: application to myofascial force transmission lines, with the latest modifications and relevance for postural regulation
  • Objective 6: Understand lumbar fasciae: architecture and innervation; with implications for low back stability and low back pain 
  • Objective 7: Competence in performing manual treatment techniques involving Golgi receptor stimulation related to shoulder protraction
  • Objective 8: Competence in performing manual treatment techniques involving Pacini stimulation related to spinal facet joint mobility
  • Objective 9: Competence in performing manual treatment techniques involving Ruffini stimulation related to the upper trapezius
  • Objective 10: Competence in performing manual treatment techniques involving free nerve ending stimulation on the periost  
  • Objective 11: Competence in performing the 'Mother Cat Technique‘ on the nuchal fascia
  • Objective 12: Competence in including mindful micro movements of the patient during the hands‐on work

HEADLINER WORKSHOP WITH DR. ROBERT SCHLEIP, PhD

70 participants from 6 countries all gathered in Los Angeles  on Feb. 9-10, 2019 to learn about the latest fascia research and movement applications with one of the most prominent researchers in the world. Michele Bond organized this event and collaborated with Dr. Schleip to deliver a spectacular experience. Michele had the opportunity to share a presentation about the embryology of fascia and how this tissue signals muscle development in fetal development.

ONLINE and LIVE WORKSHOPS

Michele Bond has partnered with NCEP (National College of Exercise Professionals) to bring a series of online and live workshops to study this intriguing living biological matrix. 


There is a half-day Intro to Fascia lecture and practical and a full weekend fascially infused functional anatomy certification.

HEALTH CLUB and STUDIO WORKSHOPS

If your health club, gym, or small studio is interested in a workshop for your staff, Michele will travel to your site. Please email for more information.

Experience and Credentials

Michele began her studies of the fascial system in 2011 and is a member of the Fascia Research Society. She simultaneously pursued a masters degree in Kinesiology while avidly reading books and journal articles and attending workshops. In 2013, she attended an unembalmed cadaver exploration of the fascial system with Tom Myers (Anatomy Trains book), created a fascial system exercise class for clients, and attended the 2015 Fascia Research conference. At this time, she secured the mentorship of two prominent researchers for her masters thesis - Dr. Carla Stecco and Dr. Peter Huijing. She performed original research in this field and it was accepted for a poster presentation at the Berlin Fascia Research Congress in 2018. This research has now been published - International Journal of Exercise Science 12(1): 825-838, 2019.  Michele is the anatomy and fascia education director for the National College of Exercise Professionals (NCEP) and is now launching their fascia education curriculum. She also has a full time exercise therapy business that she has run since 1999.
