Event Details

This two day workshop will include both myofascial and low-force joint mobilising techniques for the legs. The first part of the class will present a summary of research findings that clarify what happens at a molecular level during MFR. This is much more than just an interesting look at aspects of biology but instead it helps us understand the best way to deliver the techniques for maximum effect. Then a number of MFR approaches for
the thigh and lower leg will be shown along with joint mobilising techniques for the knee, fibula, tala-crural joint and the cuboid. Joint mobilisations that are embedded in a supportive myofascial matrix are more effective and long lasting than those done in isolation.

MFR for:

• all four lower leg compartments
• the ankle retinacula
• the knee retinacula
• plantar fascia
• fascia lata

Joint mobilising:

1. the knee
• “Screw home”
• Meniscus tracking
• anterior/posterior glide of tibia on femur
• proximal fibula

2. the ankle
• talo-crural
• cuboid
• tibial-fibula


Michael Stanborough, MA, Advanced Rolfer, has taught Direct Release Myofascial Technique at numerous schools, hospitals and clinics in the USA, Korea, Singapore, New Zealand, Canada,  Japan, Puerto Rico,  Australia and Africa. He was the first Australian to be certified as a teacher of Rolfing® by the Rolf Institute and has been practicing that method for over 35 years. Michael is director of SI Australia. His classes blend new information on the physiology of fasciae with lively presentations of techniques that are immediately relevant to practising therapists.
