Frequently Asked Questions

How are the Dynamic Brain Healing and Fascia Courses different and do the concepts overlap?

The Dynamic Brain Healing workshop focuses on the brain, neurotransmitters, fascial involvement, reflex involvement, lymphatic and cerebral spinal fluid involvement. Brain exercises and movements are demonstrated.

The Fascia Treatment and training courses focuses on the Fascia, utilizes myofascial and fascial techniques 5 techniques per protocol, fascial exercise and ergonomics of the practitioners is also addressed.

What is the difference between Fascia Treatment Training and all other Fascia Stretching programs, particularly FST?

FTI approach to Fascia is to start with anchoring the joint to create space in the body. Fascia doesn’t stretch per se; fibers are either made ( laid down ) or detached, broken apart—the more space in the body, the less pain or restriction.

You can indirectly “stretch” Fascia while stretching a muscle or by stretching on traction. Every time you touch the body, you create change; is it temporary change or lasting change. FTI primary focus is to build a strong fascial foundation to allow muscles to function optimally for performance, speed, and recovery.

FTI philosophy and approach to Fascia is not symmetrical, so stretching the entire body equally on both sides will not take-out lines of tension, meaning you are imprinting the same dysfunction by addressing each fascial line at the same time.

What are the prerequisites for the Dynamic Brain Healing course?

The enrolment prerequisite to Dynamic Brain Healing is the online course, 8.5 hours of a deep dive into the theory of concussion and the brain. If your purchase both the online and live courses at the same time, there is a $245 discount. You must also hold a certification or registration in your professional association or hold an equivalent degree.

Who are the courses open to?
Courses are open to health care professionals, strength and conditioning coaches, FST practitioners or those approved by Simone.
How long do I have to complete the online course?
You have one year from date of purchase to complete the online course.
Are there quizzes included in the online course?

Yes, there are quizzes at the end of each module. The quizzes ensure you have completed each module and are required to obtain CEUs or CECs from your association.

How is the course different from other concussion courses out there?

Most concussion courses focus on return to play for the 80% who recover within 4-weeks. Fascia Training Institute’s courses look at neurotransmitters, fascial and lymphatic contributions to healing concussion, brain retraining, movement re-education, and brain nutrition. These protocols were developed for the 20% of those who do not heal within 4-weeks.

Yes, there is a certification of completion.

Yes, there is a yearly mandatory one-day course to maintain certification or assisting at one of the live courses.

If I complete the online 7 Step Concussion Protocol Course and/or the Live Dynamic Brain Healing Level 1 and 2, does this mean I can do stretch therapy on clients?
No, they are separate courses with different outcomes. The Concussion Treatment Protocol and Dynamic Brain Healing Course is about concussion, the brain, and how to heal the brain after an injury. The Live Fascia Courses are specifically about the treatment of the fascia and fascia stretching. The fascia stretching courses look at 5 different approaches on how to treat or stretch the fascia. Once you complete these live Fascia Courses, you will then have the skills to apply stretch therapy/treatment protocols to your clients. What this treatment does is create space in the body for movement, power and performance. Fascia does not stretch in the traditional sense like muscles.

As a Strength Coach for over 20 years, I have seen firsthand how Simone’s knowledge, expertise, and skills have directly improved my athletes’ performance. I am amazed at how well she can provide treatment to fascia, nerve, and lymphatic symptoms through new and integrative techniques. In addition to this, her concussion prevention and management techniques have directly impacted my players and helped with return to court time. If you wish to experience true healing and results I highly recommend visiting Simone and seeing first-hand what she can do for you.

After attending the 7 Step Concussion Protocol course, my expectations of patient outcomes has increased!

As a manual osteopathic therapist I use fascial, lymphatic, visceral and cranial techniques daily. Simone’s techniques and the research behind them have elevated my practice and provided benefits to patients beyond expectation! Patients have experienced mental, emotional, physical and postural changes.

Life-changing is an absolute understatement. As a strength coach it’s very easy to get caught up in the superficial game and force things into working; work harder, apply the most aggressive methods, suffer to achieve greatness.

Simone Fortier not only showed us that it is wiser to use finesse as opposed to force, but she opened all three of our eyes to a world of possibilities. I attended Simone Fortier’s course and learned how to relieve pain, improve fascia health, create necessary space in the body, and change our client’s lives. I’m excited to help my athletes and for the future for all of us. Big things coming. Big thanks to Preston Greene for introducing us!!

I’ve studied the effects of nutrition and supplementation on brain function and believed that was one of the BEST ways to change the brain. I learned how to change the brain with my hands. Simone opened up my eyes to what happens when you change fascia. We experienced in it our bodies…better mobility, more vascularity (imagine seeing your muscles without actually working out), and less pain from previous injuries.

For the FIRST time in my life, I actually started to work with the muscles, fascia, and bones around the face and skull.
It may sound a bit weird (or obvious)…but the muscles and fascia and bones around the face can be manipulated just like the rest of the body.

I was amazed and I’m super excited to share this everyone. By the end of class, my thought was clearer…my brain was calmer…my vision was sharper…my breathing was easier…and I felt different.

I really didn’t know what I was getting myself into this weekend. I was prepared to learn about fascia, something new and exciting for me. I couldn’t explain it to my clients and told them I had no idea what I would learn, maybe some stretching. Simone was HIGHLY recommended by Preston Greene for brain health and fascia so of course, we needed to go see her.

After this weekend I have both experienced and witnessed LIFE-CHANGING events. These 4 days will change the course of my career and my life. It’s hard to process and put into words so over the next few weeks and months I plan on showing you guys some amazing before and after pictures along with video testimonials. If I tried to explain how you’d call me crazy!

I believe that every moment of the last few years has to lead me to this weekend.
