Fascia Focussed Dissection Lab Courses ​ 

Led by experienced leaders in the connected fields of dissection, movement, and fascia exploration and education, we provide dissection courses that are specifically designed for manual therapists, movement professionals, and those who want to explore human fascia through embodied movement and dissection.

We provide a five-day immersive experience that offers firsthand insights into the human fascial network through embodied movement and lab exploration at the PLASTINARIUM, home of the BODYWORLDS Exhibits in Guben, Germany.
Including palpatory skills and movement exploration - we guide you through a unique experience of being the dissector at a world-class venue.

These dissection courses are ideal for all healthcare professionals including but not limited to:

The venue for these courses is the Plastinarium, home of the BODYWORLDS exhibition in Guben, Germany.

The PLASTINARIUM is a public exhibition, a centre of anatomical excellence, and a transparent factory in one. Spread over 3,000 square metres, it offers a fascinating glimpse into the anatomies of both humans and animals, as well as various plastination techniques. Learn more at www.plastinarium.de

Gary and Jihan will guide you through the course, usually Sunday afternoon through to Friday midday.
This includes introducing you to the unique venue that is the Plastinarium - home of the world famous Body Worlds exhibits. We can not encourage you enough to come and join us even if simply to experience all that the Plastinarium has to offer. It is a world class venue and one that is rich in anatomical treasures. It houses a museum of BODYWORLDS exhibition pieces, a huge working dissection lab that operates 6 days a week and an incredibly knowledgable team of anatomists, positioners and attentive administration staff - all on hand to support the smooth running of this extraordinary place.

"What a great event! Hard to think of a better place and better instructors to learn about fascial anatomy at this unique location”

Fascia – Our richest sensory organ

“For many decades, and for most Western medicine professionals, fascia was considered an inert wrapping organ, merely giving mechanical support to our muscles and other organs. Yes, there were some early histological reports about the presence of sensory nerves in fascia, but these were largely disregarded and did not affect the prevailing medical understanding of musculoskeletal dynamics.
While Moshe Feldenkrais and Ida Rolf were apparently not aware of the intriguing importance of fascia as a sensory organ for our body perception, Andrew Taylor Still, the founder of Osteopathy, wrote that “No doubt nerves exist in the fascia…” and suggested all fascial tissues should be treated with the same respect as if dealing with “the branch offices of the brain.”
