DBM Fasciatherapy will be present at BFS 2018 with a workshop on saturday 12.

The Fifth International Fascia Research Congress (FRC) will be held in Berlin, November 14 - 15, 2018. The conference theme will be: Connecting Key Issues: How Fascia Research Can Impact Health Outcomes. Pre-conference workshops will be held November 13, 2018.

The International Fascia Research Congress (FRC) was created by a multidisciplinary committee of basic science researchers and practicing health care professionals whose respective fields share a common focus and interest in the human body’s soft connective tissue matrix. For the first time, the 2015 Congress also included veterinary aspects of fascia research. An important continuing initiative of the FRC is to foster understanding and collaboration among scientists working in fascia research and the various clinical professionals who address fasciae in their work with clients and patients. The FRC provides high quality conference settings where these usually diverse groups can learn from one another, gain insights that will inform and enrich their respective pursuits, and advance scientific inquiry and applied methods.

The International FRC has been held in Boston, Amsterdam, Vancouver and Washington, DC and has built a reputation for bringing cutting-edge fascia science to the research, medical and clinical communities.

The abstract submission will be open January 2 through March 31, 2018. Learn More
