Discover a patient-centred model of evaluation and intervention that can be applied across the spectrum of manual therapy, massage, and exercise-based interventions.

Based on current understandings of biopsychosocial impacts and using a well-defined Feedback Loop The Foundation Approach will provide a model for treatment of pain and related dysfunction.

While the work is presented from a dry, static type of manual therapy perspective, often represented as an MFR-style of engagement, time will be spent exploring its uses in other modality styles.

Payment Plans are available – for this course please contact Movement Therapy Education at

Covering the lower body, from the lumbar and pelvic region, through the hips, and out into the legs and feet, the Foundations in Manual Therapy: The Lower Body begins at the core, teaching you a simple but very effective means of connecting your findings with your client’s pain or dysfunction. Based on current understandings of biopsychosocial impacts and using a well-defined Feedback Loop, the Foundations Approach makes treatment of pain and related dysfunctions quite simple. Rather than relying on the therapist’s perception of pathology, which tends to be based on their training rather than an acceptable medical understanding of pain and movement dysfunction, the Foundations Approach chooses to rely strongly on patient feedback and shared decision-making, allowing that to guide and direct care. The Foundations Approach is less about learning diagnosis-specific technique protocols or tissue-specific models, but rather introduces a model that can be applied to any diagnosis/area. As an added value, this model of shared decision-making can be applied to nearly every style of manual therapy and exercise-based intervention.

"I just wanted to share my thoughts about the standards of teaching at The Massage Training School, Exmouth & Bristol. Today I attended the BTEC level 5 therapists in their final assessment and I commend both your tutors and your students. Whilst I've no idea about the world of massage therapy, I teach and assess students at degree and masters level and was credibly impressed with their level of knowledge, the attention to detail from tutors and the students' professionalism. I also have to say that just 5 minutes of sports & remedial therapy on my shoulder has achieved more than hours of other therapy. A credit to the standards at the school. Many thanks!"

Anna-Maria is an incredibly knowledgeable tutor and her passion for the industry is completely evident in the way she delivers each session. She seamlessly includes critical thinking and challenges her students to do the same and this element becomes more of a focus as the course develops. The School is forward thinking in its approach to evidence-based practice with a client-centred approach and I continue to benefit from the latest learning by attending CPD events. As a past student, it is great to know that high quality content is still available, as is the growing community of ISRM members.

I found the CPD format very easy to follow and was very impressed by how interactive it was. The content was thorough, yet simple to understand. I found this style to be less intimidating as a newly qualified STT which allowed me to get involved in the polls and questions. I found the 3 tutors presenting to have the perfect mix of personalities, knowledge and delivery.
