Every single fibre of the bodys muscular system gets its mobility from the flexible fascials, who are responsible not only for the sliding capacity of the muscles, but who also transport nutrients to all areas of the body.
Due to a wide range of medical studies on the function of fascials they play an increasingly important role within the clinical field: overloading, false posture, monotonous movements, inappropriate or excessive loading irritate and disturb the statics and dynamic of the fascial system.
Gentle posture leads to a shortening and thickening of the fasicals, which causes the loss of their elasticity.
With the fascial therapy the viscoelasticity of the fascial tissue is improved and the sliding ability inbetween the fascial layers is regained:
- Through stretching techniques of the long musclechains (=fascial stretch)
- Self-treatment with f.ex. the fascial-roll (fascial release)
- Improvement of the self-perception through direct techniques
