Dynamic Fascial Response™ is healing modality created from Chula Gemignani’s years of experience. It is a blend of structural therapies and foundational philosophy that induce a ‘dialog’ of activation and response between the practitioner and the fascia/client body. The response in the fascia releases holding patterns in the fascial body and as a result, both physiological and emotional changes occur. This method resources and repurposes the stuck patterns and can heal trauma, relieve pain, improve posture and health and above all promote peace.
This bodywork may involve passive or active client participation.
Students who receive a minimum 24 hours in DFR courses and have video taped proof OR instructor approval of student’s proficiency of the material learned are free to use the terminology Dynamic Fascial Response™ for their work.

“I’ll never forget the way it felt to massage a pregnant woman before I was a prenatal specialist. I do not want other therapists to feel as insecure or as unsure as I did. I want to keep mothers and babies safe and well cared for by responsible massage therapists. For this, I have created a practical student handbook, filled with illustrations and learning material that will facilitate this dynamic class of group and problem-solve learning, demonstrations, and upon completion, solid practitioners. “
“Chula’s class gave me a well rounded understanding of prenatal massage and postnatal care. Her teaching style is organized, focused, and kind. She will wait until every last person is on the same page before moving on. I will continue to take every class she offers and encourage fellow body workers to do the same!”
“Chula is one of the best teachers I have ever had. This structural work is difficult for me but she made it much easier for me and was very patient and clear and very easy to pay attention to. Her enthusiasm for the subject was contagious”
“I really appreciate the book and all of the reference material that was provided”
“I loved all of the fascia techniques and Chula was very organized.”
This course is for treating the pregnant client however, there is a bonus. Most of the side-lying techniques that you will learn for solving low back and hip pain, will be appropriate for non-pregnant clients as well as the jaw release that you will be able to bring to any clients suffering from chronic headaches, TMJ, neck issues or pelvic issues. I was already a good bodyworker before I learned this material, but with it my work became great, my schedule full and word of mouth has helped my successful career grow even more rewarding. It is truly inspiring work that fuels my fire.
Upon completion of this course you will be a pregnancy massage specialist and will have a specialist’s confidence and 40 continued education hours. A certification of completion of hours will be mailed to you in a timely manner after this class is completed.
