Stay in the model

by Keisuke Tanaka FDM.O.

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.
