Tensegrity Medicine

Module 1 - Introduction To Fascial Assessment

October 15 & 16, 2020


with Kelly Clancy in Toronto, Canada

Not available online - IN PERSON only!


9:30 am to 5:30 pm both days




Who should take this course?


Any movement therapist with an interest in how soft tissue along fascial lines behaves under tension, with variable loads, repetitive postures, and recurrent injuries.

Join us to explore the fascial web - a fascinating gel-like 'net' that sits under the skin and on top of muscle.

Understand how changes in the fascial system - due to physical or even mental or emotional trauma - can result in imbalances affecting functional movement, mood, balance, and structural integrity.

A completely new way of assessing the body - not our typical biomechanical evaluation!

Intrigued? Us too!

'Love your information. I am excited to take future classes with you. I feel like this has been the missing link for me.'

Meet Kelly Clancy

Watch Kelly as she presents an introduction to biotensegrity medicine. Join us for this three course series in Toronto!


Movement therapists - it's time to update your clinical assessment skills! Move from a biomechanics paradigm into a biotensegrity framework.

Learn how to incorporate this new understanding of connective tissue science into your clinical

This comprehensive course will cover topics related to the newest research on fascia. The controversies in regards to categorizing connective tissue; biotensegrity as an alternate paradigm in understanding movement and structure.

Learn the latest terminology for understanding the body from this ‘lens’, including closed kinematic chains, ground reaction force, polarities, force coupling, mechanotransduction, fasciacytes, telocytes, heterarchy versus hierarchy, stretching versus gliding, relational anatomy, myofascial force transmission and much more!

Even though clients may come in with the same location of pain, diagnosis or discomfort, the treatment will be unique based on the correct assessment.

Your treatment is only as effective as your accurate assessment strategies 😎

'This training was transformative on so many levels. It showed me how to look at the body from a truly holistic perspective: fascial length, optimal muscle length to generate optimal force, the importance of movement retraining, and the part that our thought processes play in our health.

Kelly's teaching style is refreshing given her vast knowledge base. She knows the material inside and out. She is able to present it in a cogent manner that facilitates curiosity, self-examination, and critical thinking. She guided us through this course with compassion, humility, and grace. I am very grateful to have been a part of this work. Thank you, Kelly.'



Learn To Assess & Treat Soft Tissue Along The Fascial Lines Of The Body Based On The Tensegrity Model


This two day assessment workshop will teach the tools and objective measures to provide a more targeted and effective treatment for your clients.


The focus of this introductory course will be on understanding the newest in fascial research and clinical applications based on a biotensegrity model.

By learning to objectively test and document limitations within the connective tissue system, you will then be able to choose the most appropriate hands on manual therapist or movement retraining.

Use your new skills to help avoid over-treatment and stay true to a “less is more” philosophy.

Educate your clients on the source of their discomfort, communicate client progress to other providers, and document outcomes for further research.

'The most fantastically mind-blowing, yet applicable, whole body system of treatment I have experienced so far. I use what I learned in this course every day in my practice.'

What You'll Learn In This Course:


  • Understand the concept of tensegrity and its application to the human body
  • Learn about the fascial system and its role in common pathologies

  • Learn about relational anatomy and its role in pathologies and movement dysfunction

  • Gain specific knowledge of fascial lines, the anatomical landmarks within these lines, and the pathologies commonly associated with them

  • Analyze and document postural limitations in the fascial lines, utilizing myofascial testing

  • Select and apply appropriate manual therapy procedures based on myofascial testing outcomes

  • Evaluate and document pre- and post-treatment measures in order to track the efficacy of treatment

  • Design a customized treatment plan based on objective findings


'My private massage therapy practice has transformed with the Tensegrity Medicine model and forever changed how not only I but, every single client looks at their bodies as a community of movement and/or restrictions. The model of only treating the isolated area hurting and in pain can no longer be accepted by either.'
