Fascia is now recognised as having profound and widespread significance for many aspects of health, with numerous research programmes in many therapeutic fields. Its significance was first identified by Andrew Taylor Still (the founder of Osteopathy) in the mid 1800s, but it is only recently that his insights are finally becoming widely appreciated and the value of fascia more fully acknowledged.
“The soul of man seems to dwell in the fascia of the body” - Andrew Taylor Still
Fascia holds our physical structure together, maintaining tensegrity
It penetrates deep into the internal structure of cells, to the nucleus of the cell.
It provides an essential communication system throughout the body
It has a vast sensory nerve supply
It makes substantial and profound connections with the autonomic nervous system
It transmits forces, injuries and restrictions throughout the body
It retains memories of injury and trauma (tissue memory)
It carries emotional tensions
Woking with the fascia is an extremely valuable process with potentially profound repercussions – whether working with musculo-skeletal injuries, chronic pain and restriction, emotional tension, profound debilitating trauma, or overall integration of the body-mind.
These two seminars will be very practical and interactive days. They will be led by Thomas Attlee, principal of the College of Cranio-Sacral Therapy, presenting an approach to Fascial Unwinding that is not generally available elsewhere. Thomas’ unique way of working with Fascial Unwinding provides a profoundly effective means of interacting with the fascia, which can be transformative for many circumstances and an invaluable resource in day to day practice.
For those new to Fascial Unwinding these seminars provide an excellent means of understanding and experiencing this powerful and profound process.
For those already familiar with Fascial Unwinding, they provide valuable further insight, detailed attention to refining skills and deepening engagement, enabling increased confidence in working with fascia and its application within the cranio-sacral process.

“I can’t wait to put all this into practice with my patients”
“I feel that I really understand Fascial Unwinding for the first time”
“I used to find Fascial Unwinding a real struggle, but now it’s suddenly become easy”
