Fascia, also known as connective tissue, are the tissue fibers that run through our entire body and serve to maintain body tension. The sensitive network of fascia ensures that everything in the body is “in its place” and stable. Because of their delicate nature, the tissue fibers can easily become twisted, tangled, and matted which can lead to pinched nerves when gone untreated. Oftentimes, there is a reduced water content in the connective tissue, which can lead to a loss of suppleness. It is also possible for the tension in connective tissue to become too tense. Fascia therapy and training can counteract the negative symptoms associated with connective tissue disorders resulting in dissolved tension, the significant reduction of acute and chronic pain, a new feeling of mobility, the development of lightness and stability, rejuvenated tissue after extreme sport.
Fascia therapy is an integral part of our therapy program that can be used during in-office sessions and in a guided at-home practice.
To aid in self-practice in between sessions we recommend the use of hard foam rollers and fascia rollers.
