What the GFDMO is

Global Fascial Distortion Model Organization, founded and owned by Angitia LLC, was established in 2016. To create the organization, we were inspired by the medical paradigm created by Stephen Typaldos – the FDM model.

Our organization was founded on the IFDMC – International FDM Congres, which took place on the 25th anniversary of Stephen Typaldos’ discovery of the first fascial distortion.

The congress was organized in cooperation of Angitia and AWF Katowice and with the support of world-class scientists and very experienced practitioners, lecturers and instructors from Poland and abroad.
