The Third International Fascia Research Congress held in Vancouver, B.C., Canada delivered the same high level of scientific presentations previously set in the Second Fascia Research Conference held at Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam. These series of international conferences, dedicated to the newly emerging field of "Fascia Studies", continue to build upon the objectives set out at the First Fascia Research Congress in Boston in 2007. The principal focus of the conferences is the presentation of the latest and best scientific research findings on the human fasciae in all its forms and functions.
The 2012 Fascia Congress, as always, centered on the latest and best research on the human fasciae. Three full days of scientific presentations were flanked by additional days of practical workshops, and a research training and project funding symposium.
The sold-out conference, attended by 800 people, was hosted by the Massage Therapists Association of British Columbia (MTABC). The selection of the MTABC by the directors of the Fascia Research Congress, a project of the Ida P. Rolf Research Foundation, was a recognition of the excellence, quality and commitment of BC's Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs).
