The practice of FDM entails utilizing countless techniques in order to
treat a wide variety of injuries and conditions related to fascial distortions.
Therefore, it is necessary for a practitioner of FDM to acquire a wide
repertoire of treatment techniques. In his textbook entitled “FDM Clinical
Theoretical Application of the Fascial Distortion Model Within the Practice
of Medicine and Surgery,” the originator of FDM, Dr. Stephen Typaldos,
introduced and outlined the basic theories and techniques of FDM as well
as advanced his vision of its future possibilities.
In this book, “Stay in the Model,” Keisuke Tanaka FDM.O. introduces the
original FDM techniques he learned while practicing at Dr. Typaldos’s
clinic as well as the techniques Keisuke Tanaka currently uses in his clinic.
Specifically, he will introduce further techniques taught to him by Dr.
Typaldos which were not introduced in Dr. Typaldos’s original textbook
seeing that FDM’s repertoire is too wide to be encompassed in only one
book. The focus of “Stay In the Model Vol.1” is to outline and elaborate
on the clinical concepts of FDM as well as introduce treatments for sprained
ankles and sore shoulders.
Keisuke Tanaka was one of two people directly certified as an instructor by Stephen Typaldos to teach original FDM. “Stay In the Model” has been published with the consent of the current copyright holder.
