Only in recent years researchers began to focus on fascia, driven by manual, alternative therapies but also by sports science and other fields. Fascia is influenced by massage, many of the physiotherapist’s methods, Bowen Therapy, acupuncture for example and also by movement like Yoga, dancing, sports etc. They might also play an important role in the body-awareness-techniques (Feldenkrais, Alexander-Technik, intendons®, Grinberg Method® etc).
So most of the known fascia related techniques are techniques following pragmatic medical experience, and their basis is only recently being researched: www.fasciaresearch.de.
Having been involved for Massage, Cranio-Sacral Therapy, NMT and Bowentherapy since over 20 years and being interested in fascia since then turned me into a “fascionada” and specialist for this amazing tissue.
