Understanding fascia is vital to a full comprehension of the body's subtleties. We bring you speakers, teachers and writers who live and breathe the full continuity of body, mind and emotion and are dedicated to its exploration. Fascia is our primary focus, but we also draw on complementary topics to provide you with the fullest sense of who we are as organic, interrelated beings, and how we function.

This is the new world of the body, the 21st century view of how we move, respond, adapt and process on all levels.

Welcome to The Fascia Hub.

Testimonials

The BFS (British Fascia Symposium) is a great opportunity for all of us interested in this wonderful tissue, the foundation of life itself, to gather and share the latest Science and our insights about how we can use this information to improve people’s lives. -Carol M. Davis

The Fascia Hub is a great resource to stay up to date with fascial research! Events are filled with fabulously knowledgeable speakers and the atmosphere is always welcoming and supportive. ~ Christina, US

Attending the British Fascia Symposium 2022 was like coming home. It provides me with a community of intelligent, generous and enthusiastic fascia nuts that I can learn from, be inspired by and play with. Although our vested interests in fascia are coming from different professions, we were all on the same page. I felt as though the energy of my fascia and my being was connecting to everyone there. Can’t wait for the next one! ~ Lee, US

The British Fascia Symposium organised by the Fascia Hub was a wonderful platform for learning. The organisers put together this event with great thought and insight from the speakers, the way the event was conducted and the platform of Whova through which it’s accessibility was conducive for an audience spread world wide. I applaud this event and am extremely grateful to have been a part of it as a speaker and a listener! Thank you! ~ Moushumi, India

I will attend all future British Fascia Symposia. They offer up to date information in a fast-changing field presented by the leaders in research and movement. ~ Carol, US

Amazing learning experience for anatomy and somatic movement enthusiasts – so much new information. How exciting to discover that the medical world is catching up and research verifying the healing modalities that have been seen as woo woo for those that need the back up of research. ~ Katrina, UK

Really appreciate all of the wisdom shared, I’m leaving with more questions than I came with and that’s always a good thing. Thanks so much to all presenters, and to you Jan. Lovely bunch of people. Very inspired!

~ Fascia Foot Attendee

I am so grateful to you all for the quality and inspiration of your training. They have lit the way for me into new universes of learning and inquiry. It’s just so stunning and lovely when that can happen.

– Kristin Farthing, USA

An extremely high quality event, with world class speakers who were able to bridge the space often left between scientific theory and the real life body. Loads of great information shared in a way that I didn’t feel talked down to. I learned so many really interesting things and will be back for more, I very much hope! Thank you!

–  Sue, UK

The Fascial Pelvis event gave me more insights on why light touch and communication restoration is a much better way to go for many different issues. My practical experience was confirmed with data where available and presented by a warm hearted group of professionals. I felt the practical experience, intention and know how through the screen of my computer 🙂 Relaxed, light and connected, its the direction our modalities and therapies are evolving in the coming decades.
