Fascial Manipulation: How it Works, and What It Can Do With Warren Hammer

72 Minutes - May 2, 2018

SHOW NOTES

Warren Hammer authored some of the first articles and books I read as I was starting into grad school. He’s been practicing using various soft tissue methods since the 1960’s… he landed on Facial Manipulation as his main tool. I couldn’t help but reach out to him to see what he has learned over the past 50 years of soft tissue work, clinical experience and research. You’ll enjoy his passion!

 

Here’s some topics we hit:

  • What kind of injuries or cases can fascial work assist with?
  • What is Fascia?
  • Does fascia have pain receptors?
  • Why does fascia get restrictions and what is the physical “sticking?”
  • How is Fascial work any different than foam rolling, massage, ART, graston etc
  • Explain the receptor system
  • How can fascial manipulation assist in movement patterns?
  • Research surrounding fascia work
