An evidence-informed self-myofascial release course that advances students’ understanding of foam rolling, massage stick work and mobility ball techniques as rehabilitation and performance interventions.
Ideal for range of motion improvement, performance hacks and athletic recovery enhancement.
FMT Mobility Specialist Course is an evidence-informed self-myofascial rolling course that advances students’ understanding of mobility techniques for their patient’s and client’s needs. FMT Mobility Specialist offers a practical framework and a systematic approach for determining why, how, when and where to roll for movement preparation, movement recovery or pain relief. Assessment systems will be presented examining concepts of joint by joint mobility, stability and fascial integrity. These systems will be utilized to direct fun and innovative lab experiences throughout the course.
FMT Mobility Specialist methodically integrates a review of the current literature and demonstrates the science behind rolling for improved rehabilitation or performance outcomes. Current concepts such as rolling with percussion/vibration will be explored with innovative solutions provided for common movement, performance and recovery challenges. This course is intended for health and fitness professionals with all levels of prior self-myofascial rolling experience.
Functional Movement Training (FMT) Certification courses are taught by industry leading experts in movement assessment, performance and rehabilitation. CEUs may be offered for DC, ATC, PT, LMTs, LAc, OTs and personal trainers – depending on location and class type.

Educational Objectives of FMT Mobility Specialist
At the conclusion of the course, attendees will be able to:
- Identify and discuss the history of self-myofascial release/rolling (Self-MFR) techniques.
- Compare and contrast current foam rolling research studies.
- Discuss and critique neurological vs mechanical physiological effects of self-myofascial rolling techniques.
- Compare variables of ‘how’ we roll, including depth, duration and rate of rolling and the effects on the underlying tissue and patient/client outcomes.
- Compare variables of ‘why and when’ we roll, including for movement preparation, movement recovery and pain relief.
- Discuss, screen and apply joint by joint mobility and stability MFR techniques to explore a system of ‘where to roll’.
- Discuss, screen and apply facial chain mobility MFR techniques to explore a system of ‘where to roll’.
- Discover and experiment with various self-myofascial release application techniques for common complaint locations such as spine, upper and lower extremities.
