• Their name will appear on the online official list of “CERTIFIED FASCIAL MANIPULATION SPECIALISTS” kept on the official FM website.
• In their personal promotional activities, they may use the trademarked names Fascial Manipulation®, Manipulation of Fascia® or Stecco®, as well as the logo ®. Such used as professional letterhead stationery, business cards, local sign and brochures.
