Event Overview
Welcome message:

The International Fascia Research Congress (FRC) has been held in Boston, Amsterdam, and Vancouver and has built a reputation for bringing cutting-edge fascia science to the research, medical and clinical communities.

Dedicated to the newly emerging field of “Fascia Studies”, the fourth FRC will be held near Washington, DC on September 18 – 20, 2015 and continues to provide a forum for high-level fascia exploration. More than 1,000 participants from around the world are expected to attend the 2015 conference. The 2015 conference is hosted by the Ida P. Rolf Research Foundation.

The upcoming Congress will include a special 1-day session on "Fascia, Acupuncture and Cancer"chaired by Helene Langevin, November 14, 2015, at a Harvard Medical School conference center in conjunction with the Society for Integrative Oncology and the Society for Acupuncture Research.

The Fascia Research Congress was created by a multidisciplinary committee of basic science researchers and practicing health care professionals whose respective fields share a common focus and interest in the human body’s soft connective tissue matrix. For the first time, the 2015 Congress will also include veterinary aspects of fascia research. An important continuing initiative of the FRC is to foster understanding and collaboration among scientists working in fascia research and the various clinical professionals who address fasciae in their work with clients and patients. The FRC provides high quality conference settings where these usually diverse groups can learn from one another, gain insights that will inform and enrich their respective pursuits, and advance scientific inquiry and applied methods.

The information developed at these conferences is made available through this ongoing website and other available media (e.g., Proceedings Books, DVD Recordings). For more information about materials from past congresses, see the chart below:
