Fascia distortion model: Opened in Tokyo International Course

The International FDM Course starts today on Friday in Tokyo under the direction of the President of the Asian organization FAA, Keisuke Tanaka FDM. O. and Marjorie Kasten P.T.

At the beginning of the event in the Asakusa district, where one of the most important shrines in Japan is located, Tanaka welcomed the roughly 40 participants, including a German delegation, with an introductory course to the model of fascia distortion according to Stephen P Typaldos. Tanaka is a direct student of the founder of the fascia distortion model and learned his skills directly from Typaldos, who unfortunately passed away in 2006 at the age of 49.

Tanaka is today considered a strict representative of Typaldo's ideas and can look back on extensive background knowledge, which he acquired from Stephen Typaldos' lifetime and has enriched through practice over the years through experience. The transfer of this theoretical knowledge and the practice of practically applicable actions according to the concept of the FDM were in the foreground at Tanaka this Friday. Even the participants who had made the long journey from Germany to Tokyo were rewarded for the long journey. From his wealth of experience, Tanaka unveiled everything that had been conveyed to him by Typaldos.

So he indicated that in addition to body language, subjective and objective complaints, as well as the trigger mechanism according to the fascia distortion model, must be taken into account in daily work with the patient. He advocated the indivisibility of these four elements of diagnosis according to the FDM and also dealt with the cultural differences in body language between Asia and western countries. In Asian countries, people would get by with a significantly lower gesture when expressing their complaints physically than, for example, in the southern European countries. This often makes access difficult for Asian FDM therapists. According to Tanaka, the other factors in FDM diagnosis have become visible again with their importance. These are empirical values ​​that European FDM therapists should also make use of.

In addition, Tanaka imparted original techniques by Stephen Typaldos to those present, the majority of whom are Japanese sports physiotherapists, and gave the practitioners tips from his many years of practical experience, e.g. in dealing with the gestures of patients with chronic back pain.

The fascia distortion model is also well received in Japan, because, just like in Europe, some of the non-specific methods used in everyday life in conventional medicine are used, which usually do not do justice to the individual character of the complaints of those affected. Tanaka expressed the scientific and therapeutic nonsense of some common therapies in Japan with a vivid example: the same as trying to give hair to a bald man in order to stimulate his hair growth again. In this way, the massive volume of the material conveyed was supplemented by small anecdotes for those present and made more accessible. Tanaka ended his part today by saying that from one point of view it makes no sense

to mix the FDM with other concepts. In his view, the FDM differs fundamentally from the other manual therapies or techniques on fascia such as Rolfing, myofascial release, acupressure or massage. A mixture with other techniques or concepts would weaken the FDM's focus and effectiveness. Tomorrow Saturday, another colleague and student of the founder of the fascia distortion model will teach: Marjorie Kasten, P.T. their therapeutic focus is inversion therapy. (tf)
