Fascia training: exercises for myofascial release

Discover the soothing effect of the specific massaging of local body regions and muscle groups. One of the aims of the myofascial release1 method is to stimulate tissue circulation and thus increase tissue tone. The German Society for Osteopathic Medicine (DGOM e.V.) defines this as: all muscles are enveloped by the so-called fasciae. The fasciae themselves are connected with each other all over the body. The fasciae are stimulated by gentle pressure and tension. This improves the circulation and triggers reactions to normalise tissue tone.2
