There is no “one size fits all” approach to movement science and exercise prescription.

Recharge in the beautiful scenery of the mountains as you learn a dynamic and progressive systems-based approach to movement screening, assessment and intervention.

You’ll get once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to apply clinical strategies into practice with world-class expert Jessica Hill, PT, DPT, MSPT, CSCS, SFMA, FMS, as you explore how to:

  • Quickly identify and correct inefficient movement patterns
  • Objectively analyze movement to create more effective treatment plans
  • Enhance quality of movement to reduce injury and increase performance

Nothing can replace the energy and excitement of being in person for enhanced learning – you’ll be immersed in hands-on learning and leave with actionable insights and unforgettable connections.

Set yourself apart from the thousands of practitioners who rely on outdated methods. Join dedicated clinicians just like you who are ready to be transformed, personally and professionally, and equipped with new tools and practices to take your practice to the next level.

When you become an FMT: Advanced Movement Specialist, it’s the ultimate trifecta: you increase opportunities for cash-based services, career advancement and referrals.

  • Multiple corrective strategies to influence the subconscious movements of breathing and gait
  • Essential building blocks for multiplanar movement and motor control
  • Easily adaptable movement preparation drills, specific warmups, and tissue preparation
  • Effective interventions including: self-myofascial techniques, taping, hands-on techniques, cupping and more!

This content-rich retreat is organized with plenty of down time for rest and relaxation in the pool or even for nourishing naps and massages. The Honor’s Haven Retreat Center is in a magnificent rolling hills landscape with labyrinths, walking paths, night skies and sunny days in which to rejuvenate while learning integrative clinical skills.

What You'll Learn
  1. Identify the role of neuromuscular movement assessment in conscious & unconscious movement patterns.
  2. Assess conscious (cortical) and unconscious (cerebellar) proprioception testing for the patient/client as it relates to human movement.
  3. Compare and contrast the difference between mobility restrictions - neural vs. somatic restrictions (brain vs. tissue) in conscious movement.
  4. Integrate the “3 Movement Pillars” and how they relate to conscious & unconscious human movement control and performance (brain (neurological/psychological), tissue, mechanical)
  5. Evaluate movement assessment techniques to identify faulty motor patterns in fundamental movements (e.g. squatting).
  6. Critique and demonstrate proper use of compression floss bands, foam rollers and mobility balls for limitations in conscious & unconscious movement.
  7. Develop and appraise conscious & unconscious movement with the use of exercise bands, agility and conditioning equipment as well as body weight correctives with appropriate progressions and regressions.
  8. Assess automatic/unconscious awareness of human movement (breathing and gait) by screening the balance and coordination systems.
  9. Compare and contrast the difference between mobility restrictions - neural vs. somatic restrictions (brain vs. tissue) during automatic movement patterns.
  10. Demonstrate movement assessments that identify the ability to associate and dissociate segments of the body as they relate to gait/breathing movement patterns.
  11. Apply, practice and employ corrective strategies that involve the ability to associate (integrate) and dissociate (mobilize) different segments of the body.
  12. Define and discuss the physiological effects of kinesiology taping.
  13. Demonstrate safe application of kinesiology tape as it applies to pain management.
  14. Define and discuss physiological effects of myofascial cupping.  
  15. Demonstrate effective myofascial cupping strategies to help mitigate pain, improve tissue glide, and improve ROM.
