Fasciatherapy is primarily for people with local physical pain and movement disorders.
Fasciatherapy is primarily for people with local physical pain and movement disorders. The symptoms can be both acute and chronic. Fasciatherapy proves its use in professional sports as well.
Furthermore, fasciatherapy is also applied in the case of non-specific complaints. Stress-related conditions or conditions caused by functional somatic syndrome, like fibromyalgia and CVS, burn-out and depression, represent a challenge for contemporary medicine. Fasciatherapy can play an important role in the healing process for such disorders.
The symptoms of functional somatic syndrome are the result of a poorly functioning adaptation system. This derailment may have an organic origin but it can also occur independently or develop from a mental overload.
On a physiological level, the biological, endocrine and neurological systems are disturbed and the person therefore functions improperly on both a physical and a psycho-emotional level. The physical effects of this are inappropriate muscle tone, circulatory and drainage disorders, disturbances in the pain system, recurring inflammations, etc.
On a psycho-emotional level, a general feeling of discomfort and mood swings is experienced. This results in a negative perception, an altered sense of reality and negative thinking patterns that can affect behaviour.
The body sends negative information to the brain and the brain sends negative information to the body. Both systems will start to "feed" off one another and the patient is caught in this negative spiral.
In order to reverse this pathogenic process, the patient usually needs help. Fasciatherapy can help to ensure that this pathogenic process becomes a salutogenic process.
In such cases, the therapeutic approach (in which we address purely physical as well as general and non-specific complaints) is complemented by a second aspect of fasciatherapy: the educational one.
The innovative, broad and refined perspective of fasciatherapy offers an efficient way of healing physical pain, disorders of the musculoskeletal system and functional somatic disorders.
