ISMT was formed by Jonathan Martine, who is joined by many talented practitioners and teachers.
While our primary focus is on developing strategies to complement the work of Dr. Ida P. Rolf and Structural Integration; we find that these approaches are relevant for all manual therapists.The fascias and other connective tissues in the body provide a medium for change.
Our classes explore this unique, pervasive tissue as it wraps, envelopes, protects and supports the muscles, nerves, organs, vessels, joints and bones. We are dedicated to presenting and developing effective strategies to restore function, improve performance and relieve suffering. Our ongoing inquiry drives us toward useful and complementary approaches. Come along on the path.
Neural Mobilization Part 1-
Peripheral Nerves of Shoulder and Pelvic Girdles and Integrative Movement Strategies

August 3-7, 2018
Presenters Lisa Fairman and Jonathan Martine
This 5-day workshop in Montana examines the relationship of neural-fascial restriction in the shoulder and pelvic girdles to structural imbalances and myofascial and movement patterns. When the body has nerve fascia that is restricted and fails to glide, the entire system becomes pre-occupied. Reducing this “pre-occupation” is necessary for reducing pain and restoring optimal function. Through the blending of touch and cuing, strategies will be explored that evoke and invite awareness and inform integrative movement.
