Fascia therapy (also known as Bowen therapy) is a treatment technique that focuses on the fascia, the connective tissue located throughout the body.
The fascia have several crucial functions in the body: they stabilize, provide strength, keep blood vessels open, and allow your muscles, organs and joints to move smoothly past each other without too much friction.
However, fascia may become or remain overstimulated, such as from stress, injury or tissue damage. Among other things, this reduces circulation and affects the nerves running through the fascia, often resulting in chronic symptoms.
Fascia therapy restores the fascia, allowing them to regain their original, temporarily disturbed, shape. A treatment helps promote healing, decreases pain, and generally increases your energy level.
Fascia therapy can be applied in almost any situation: for young and old, in acute and chronic complaints. The treatment is experienced as gentle, subtle, and relaxing. It is this combination of characteristics that makes fascia therapy so unique.
In particular, treatment is often effective for the following complaints, usually with quick results:
During treatment, light rolling movements are performed on various parts of the body. Also in places where there are no complaints – fascia therapy is, therefore, a holistic approach. Clothing can usually be kept on during a treatment, which generally takes about 45 minutes.
Fascia therapy eliminates disturbances throughout the body so that the fascia and surrounding tissues can perform their original function.
Thus, instead of focusing on a single complaint, fascia therapy works on the whole body. It restores balance through the autonomic nervous system. This part of the nervous system influences and regulates the vast majority of our bodily functions and is sensitive to stress.
