The word "fascia" in Latin means bundle, wrapping - it is related to the Greek word "φασκιά" which translates to "περιτονία".
The fascia is a kind of connective tissue - like a three-dimensional cobweb. It surrounds all the individual parts of the body and connects them functionally.
It provides support and protection for most structures within the human body, including the muscles: it encloses all the muscles and each muscle fiber individually.
Any trauma, abuse, overload, stress, infectious factor can lead to tension, pain and reduced mobility, reduced blood flow and energy.
The function of the fascia is very important, as it plays the role of the intermediate tissue. Thus, we can achieve significant therapeutic effects in the body through fascia manipulation and treatment.
Using gentle manipulation, both superficial and in-depth and with constant feedback from the patient.
- Pain reduction.
- Motion recovery.

- Reflex stretching of the muscles and the overlying fascia.
