What is a fascia?

Fasciatherapy comes from the word “fascia” which refers to the connective tissue that covers all the muscles and organs, from head to toe, from the depth to the periphery. These fascias are partly elastic, and can absorb a physical or psychological stress causing a tightening of certain zones. The role of the fasciatherapist is to identify the zones of tension and, with the help of massages, manipulations or even immobilizations at specific points of manual support, to make them mobile and malleable again. In the long term, fasciatherapy rebalances and stimulates the energy potential. In this, she is very close to osteopathy.

Fasciatherapy is a painless and non-manipulative technique based on a gentle touch that follows the slow movement of fasciae. Fascia mobilizations, soft, and fulcrums are the two main phases of the fasciatherapy manual approach
