Joe Ackerman, owner and lead Structural Integration practitioner at CORE Structural Therapy, has announced a new line of educational structural bodywork and fascia posters.

Bodyworkers have a unique role to educate clients on the role fascia plays in optimizing health and wellness. One challenge has been the limited tools or resources available to do this. Ackerman has taken a step in the direction to change this through the creation and development of informational posters focused on the role of fascia in body health. In addition, he has created a poster on the three paradigms of bodywork and its impact on the fascial system, and finally a poster that speaks to the structural and functional benefits of the 10 sessions of Structural Integration. 

These products have been created with the end client in mind. Images and words are carefully crafted to speak to the needs, wants and results clients are looking for from a bodyworker and, ultimately, to help them envision and embrace your treatment options.

Whether placed in your waiting room or hung neatly above your treatment table, they will educate your client on how healthy fascia feeds balance, movement and whole-body health.

Testimonial

Posters are one of the most common educational tools that schools, companies, and governmental agencies have used to stimulate learning and comprehension through a visual medium. As a teacher of Structural Integration and myofascial therapy, I have found the poster titled The Origin of Injury and Illness: Fascia, by Joseph Ackerman, L.M.T., to be incredibly
helpful to anyone who wants to comprehend the properties and functions of fascia.

Ackerman has incorporated the essential definitions of the role of fascia while including the multiple benefits of keeping fascia healthy. His athletic and anatomical images and artwork, including strategic use of color and light, allows the viewer to easily read the information while enjoying the stimulation of the visual concepts.

This poster is being used at the CORE Institute in both physiology classes and clinical courses on myofascial and structural therapies. Students have commented on the importance of having multiple opportunities to see and learn from the essential elements displayed through Ackerman’s poster. They have repeatedly said that they look forward to his future poster projects and that they are inspired by his motto, “Move More, Live More.”
