Who are you?
The Fascial Distortion Model was developed by Stephen Typaldos, DO. We worked with the Typaldos family to bring the Fascial Distortion Model to all healthcare providers. All of our study material and instruction is based on the Typaldos Method and was developed from his writings, slides, research, images and videos. We have further developed the model based on research, studies, and clinical development.
