Organized by The Belgian Clinical Interest Group Fascial Physiotherapy.

Movement perception unravelled - Brussels, 14-16 October 2016

With the scientific support of CERAP

In physiotherapy, there has been an ever-increasing interest for awareness and consciousness. Since several years, awareness has been used as a tool in multiple physiotherapyschools such as Basic Body Awareness Therapy, Norwegian Psychomotor Physiotherapy and Fasciatherapy.

This congress aims to bring together different experts from varied domains who study (un)conscious awareness from an anatomical, neurological, physiological and clinical viewpoint to reveal therapeutic and educational applications.
