Fascia Research Congress


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

Dedicated to the newly emerging field of “Fascia Studies”, the fourth FRC will be held near Washington, DC on September 18 – 20, 2015 and continues to provide a forum for high-level fascia exploration. More than 1,000 participants from around the world are expected to attend the 2015 conference. The 2015 conference is hosted by the Ida P. Rolf Research Foundation.

The upcoming Congress will include a special 1-day session on "Fascia, Acupuncture and Oncology" chaired by Helene Langevin, November 14, 2015, at a Harvard Medical School conference center in conjunction with the Society for Integrative Oncology and the Society for Acupuncture Research.

The Fascia Research Congress 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 will also include 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.

Fascia Research Society


The Fascia Research Society (FRS) has been established to facilitate, encourage and support the dialogue and collaboration between clinicians, researchers and academicians, in order to further our understanding of the properties and functions of fasciae.

The FRS was born out of the success of the now triennial International Fascia Research Congress. The fourth symposium will be held September 18-20, 2015 near Washington, DC, with an additional day on "Fascia, Acupuncture and Cancer" on November 14, 2015 at Harvard Medical School's Conference Center. Since its inception in 2007, under the supervision of the Ida P. Rolf Research Foundation, this multi-disciplinary Congress has had a sold out participation in the thousands from attendees in a wide diversity of fields, from all over the world (over 40 countries).

Through a variety of member benefits, the Society is intended to bridge the gaps in time between Congresses, and connect its community, facilitating continuous exposure to others working in all disciplines of the field. The FRS is envisioned as the ‘connective tissue’ of fascia research, with the goal of enhancing our collective understanding of how the human body works, to improve conventional and complementary health care.
