Why should I take this course?

MAP fills the gap between where movement is and where movement should be.

MAP aims to overcome and fill the gap, connecting the dots by applying The 5 MAP Movements and principles. 
Dr Robert Schleipp from the Fascial Research Society said that in the “everywhereness”of fascia it became the Cinderella tissue. It’s the part of the body that everyone ignored because it seemed so common and yet, it should be central to the story. It’s this “everywhereness” that makes fascia difficult to define.  
The heart makes sense as a pump. The kidneys make sense as filters. Fascia seems to be unstructured gooey glue that has no real form, and yet, it is the essence of structural integrity. 

How then do we connect the dots between what we know and what we can practically apply? How do we go from knowing to doing since it is in this gap where change takes place. 

Benefits of this course

Grow your own business

Upon qualification you will receive the MAP Movement logo that you can apply according to set terms and conditions. This will assist you in building your own business within the generous support given by MAP Movement. Terms and conditions to usage of the brand and logo do apply.

Unique Skillset

The 5 MAP Movements are unique and original in their design. They are applied both as a tool for evaluation as well as treatment of self-myofascial release and strength. Therefore these movements are referred to as being both diagnostic and therapeutic in nature.

Movement therapy, not manual therapy

Learn a safe approach to fascia without the limitations that hands-on therapy bring. This broadens the scope of your approach to fascia by making online sessions possible in not having to apply “a license to touch”.

CPD Points

Upon completion of this course you will receive 28 CPD points.

Lené & Christien

Lené is a qualified physiotherapist and the owner of a physiotherapy practise. She was born in South Africa but now resides in the Netherlands where she opened the first MAP Movement studio in Europe. Her fields of interest include sport rehabilitation, movement education and breath re-training. Working with athletes and enhancing their performance is a true passion of hers, and therefore finding a solution to chronic recurrent injuries in athletes takes high priority. This motivated her to do research abroad and delve deeper into the world of fascia.

As co- founder of MAP movement she incorporates her years of experience with fascia knowledge and research. Her main focus is to motivate people to move from the fear of pain to freedom of movement, with the aim to change chronic pain patterns such as lower back and neck pain through movement.
