Until a couple of years ago, fascial tissue was not given a lot of consideration in the quest of maintaining health or raising efficiency. But all of a sudden fascia came into fashion and everything else was being explained as having something to do with this tissue.
Finally the “fascia hype” came to an end. But what remains is the fact, that fascial tissue is important but not more or less important than muscular tissue, bones or other structures in the body. All structures should be awarded with the same level of importance.
Thanks to the “Fascia Hype”, this organ established itself as being a fixed component within all kind of instructions and education programs in the area of therapy and sports. Who wants to be a great therapist, trainer or athlete needs to get familiar with fascia.
Fascia is a kind of a three dimensional spiderweb, that connects anything with everything inside the body. It is mainly responsible for the harmonic interaction of each singular structure during movement. In order for all the single structures to move in a coordinated way, the fascial web needs to be dynamic and flexible. When fascial tissue gets hard and tight, it can be the origin for health problems and lack of efficiency.
The good news is, that besides manipulating fascia, it is trainable as well.
Muscles and fascia cannot be separated. This means, that fascia cannot be trained isolated. Instead, it will be stimulated during each movement. Nevertheless, with the help of specific exercises and movements, any training unit can become more fascia oriented.
During strength training using exercise equipment, obviously the main focus lies on strength, but still fascia and the cardio-vascular system will get engaged as well.
While doing a cardio training program, the cardio-vascular system gets primary stimulated, but up to a certain degree, muscle fibres and fascia tissue will also get involved. During a training unit, it is also possible to concentrate mainly on fascia.
Fascial training opens a whole new dimension for many therapists and trainers.
The increase of fascial oriented exercises and fascial training units in therapy and athlete preparatory training have been proven to have a positive influence on accelerating recovery time after injuries, increasing efficiency and are also known for their prophylactic effects.
My courses: Fascial Training Basic Course and Fascial Training Advanced Course, will give you the theoretical and practical knowledge about fascial training. You will be able to introduce fascial elements within your therapy or training units, which surely will add a winning fascial effect to your work.
The course „Fascial Power training-machines and small equipment“ will give you a specific input on how give a fascial touch, while working with exercise equipment.
The course “Treat in Movement”, I give my clients the incentive, to move away from the traditional passive lying position and instead treat fascia and muscles in more functional active positions.
The main advantage of this approach is, that during the simultaneous movements and interactions, the client is given the opportunity to get in touch with his cortex and proprioception.
Another advantage is the acceleration of recovery time after injuries. This method can also have a positive input on moving refinement during exercise.
I would be very happy to welcome you at on of my workshops.
All workshops are offered as in-house education programs as well.
This course is ideal for:
- Sports teachers/sport scientists
- Body therapists
- Trainer/ Fitness Trainer/ Personal Trainer
