Fascia Therapy

Fascia is the connective tissue membranes that connect all the muscles, joints, nerves, blood vessels and organs. This interdependence can become unbalanced by scar tissue resulting from injury, surgery or radiation treatment. The fascia is then usually put under such tension that adhesions can occur. If this case fits your ailment, our therapist will recommend Fascia Therapy as a treatment.

Which complaints lead to Fascia Therapy treatment

If you have problems in your shoulder, arm, neck or back, then this treatment is ideal. Also, in patients treated for breast cancer, Fascia Therapy can be used. Our therapists often apply Fascia Therapy to treat the effects of scar tissue formation and fibrosis, which can occur after radiotherapy.

Fascia Therapy can also help with the following symptoms

  • Aches and pain;
  • Stiffness in and around a joint;
  • Difficulty in moving, general mobility;
  • Hard, tight or pulling scars;
  • Poor circulation;
  • Lymphedema.

The treatment

Before our therapist even starts the treatment, the complaint is closely examined to determine the appropriate treatment. Fascia Therapy consists of specific techniques in which the skin is massaged and the underlying layers are deftly moved in several directions, and stretched. This detaches adhesions of the connective tissue, thereby reducing or eliminating your symptoms.

Effects of Fascia Therapy

  • Less pain;
  • Feeling of more space and freedom while moving;
  • Relaxing of the scar tissue;
  • Relaxing of the skin, muscle and connective tissue;
  • Improvement of the blood flow;
  • Improvement of the lymphatic system.
